Michigan’s northern most pickleball court.
After the Lodge and golf course was built in 1933-1934 the Keweenaw County Road Commission worked with the Works Progress Administration to increase recreational opportunities on the property. Throughout the late 1930s a tennis court, a shuffleboard court, a barn for saddle horses and a concrete platform for bear feeding were all constructed during this time. The tennis court is the only surviving structure and now it is used exclusively as a pickleball court.
The rustic court is available to use throughout the day and operates on a first-come-first-serve basis. There is no cost to use the court, however all players must sign the pickle ball waiver.
Pickleball Racquet Rentals
Pickleball racquet and ball rentals are available at the OAC. We have teamed up with Revolin Sports to provide sets of their Revo Pure Control Paddles. These paddles are made from sustainable materials and offer unparalleled stability and forgiveness. When the Revolin team tried to replace the most pollutive materials in the paddle they couldn’t find any alternatives so they invented their own material called BioFLX™, which is made from hemp and flax fibers.
- 2 Revo Pure Control paddles and 2 pickleball balls – $10
- 4 Revo Pure Control paddles and 4 pickleball balls – $20
