Our Culture: Family, Community, Tradition

At Crystal Downs Country Club (CDCC), our members and employees join together to create a family-oriented, memorable summer experience for all who live, work and play here.


Whether you work in the Clubhouse, on the courts or the golf course, or are a member, you are an integral part of the CDCC family. We’re all in this together and value everyone’s contribution. We believe in doing what we can to help each other grow, have fun, feel valued and reach our goals.


Actively helping and supporting community within Crystal Downs and throughout Benzie County is a huge part of our culture. Our members and employees are heavily involved in organizations like Rotary, BACN, Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital, the Oliver Arts Center, Frankfort and Benzie schools as well as other nonprofits because we love this community and want to enhance the quality of life for all who live, work and/or play here. We also support our sense of community and create memories within CDCC through a mix of traditions and new events for members and employees alike.


Once you are part of the CDCC family and community, staff members are often a part of it for many years to come. Many of our employees work at CDCC for several years and some their entire career, some launch their careers through members and members’ connections and some end up becoming CDCC members. Through new members and members five generations deep, by instituting sustainable business and environmental practices, and by investing in our employees’ and our northern Michigan community’s future, we seek to make a positive difference, forever.
