Took an early boat and they took us under the mackinaw bridge. It was a nice trip over. Took the boat home and it was a very quick ride. They do have different boats so your tines may vary. Overall it was great

We picked up discount tickets at our hotel and got on board the 8:30 ferry. It was a pleasant ride and employees were friendly. Next time, we'll take advantage of the 'under the bridge' ride and/or a sunset tour!

I didn't take golf clubs but I think it would be the same as your other luggage. The ferry could best answer this.
