Great deal fun course To play this course for under $20 is the best deal in the area by far. Fun and challenging layout, beautiful scenery and in pretty good shape. Will be back every chance I get July 29, 2014
Best Value in West Michigan Course is maintained perfectly, greens are true and fair. Course seems to always be in perfect condition. Staff is excellent. Course layout is fun. There's a lot of good things about this course, well worth the drive. July 23, 2014
Great Deal on Weekday Tee Time Course was in good shape. Only complaint is greens seemed to run at different speeds. One hole long, next hole short. Very frustrating for a good player. July 18, 2014
Bumpy Ride course is fun to play, in pretty good shape. However, the cart paths are bumpy and not paved in many areas. Needs work, so you don't have too hold on getting to or leaving a tee area. July 5, 2014
This course is a MUST PLAY!!! As a former PGA Club Professional, I found this course to be in great shape with a fun yet challenging layout. Best course I have played in the greater Grand Rapids area. A definite Must Play!!! June 23, 2014
Where is the water? I have golfed this course many times and have never found the course in this condition before. The greens, fairways, and roughs were all dry and the grass dormant at best. I don't understand it, the course did not get in this shape overnight. I have always looked forward to golfing this course a few times a year but I think I will wait and give them a try next year. Too bad. June 1, 2014
Do Not Go Back... I am not sure what happened to this course? I have played it for years but it wasn't until this spring, where prices were raised without improvements to the course and the customer service took a dive for the worst, that it because my least favorite in the Grand Rapids area. I have never been treated so poor at ANY course in my life. I will not, nor will any of my friends be back to this course until they get their act together and fix many of the condition issues they seem to have arrived with their new lack of customer service.

Nice course to play, challenging I have played this couse several times. Challenging yet playable. If you are on your game you can score good. Mishit shots will cost you. Nice layout and well taken care of. Pace of play always seems to be good here and we are normally fast players. September 12, 2013
