We took one of the fast hydro powered boats. Quick as the dickens. All the staff we encountered were warm and friendly. We missed the late evening run under the bridge but maybe next time.

We bought the "flex-pass" ticket. Took the hydrofoil to the island and back on the classic. Sitting upstairs outside on the classic got very chilly for my Florida blood. Very efficient system for boarding and getting luggage to Mackinac Island. Plenty of parking. Free dockside...More

I have no idea how fast the ferry is, I went from Mackinaw to Mackinac Island in about 15 minutes.

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