The Grand Traverse Resort & Spa

The Grand Traverse Resort & Spa is Traverse City's premier vacation destination. The 900-acre property located along the shores of Lake Michigan offers guests the opportunity to explore "sugar-sand" beaches, wooded trails, award-winning dining, three championship golf courses including "The Bear," the Jack Nicklaus-designed course, four indoor/outdoor pools, an indoor water playground and a gorgeous health club with 5 indoor tennis courts!

It is our hope MANS attendees will enjoy the spacious meeting rooms and the opportunity to visit with old colleagues and new while sharing best practices in neurosurgery.
