Grand Haven is a traditional and classic golf course that provides a true country club experience for every golfer. The "Pine Valley" of Michigan, the Grand Haven Golf Club is a must play. It was recently featured in Sports Illustrated, Golf Digest, and USA Networks "PGA Tour Sunday."Sandy soil means that Grand Haven is playable almost immediately after rain—it also means better conditioning and course conditions.

Great shot-making is a prerequisite to navigate your ball through the towering pines and rolling sand dunes along the idyllic Lake Michigan shoreline. Rated among the top 50 public golf courses in the United States by Golf Digest for ten years, GHGC holds a ranking among the top 1% of courses in the Nation.

Slow is the word Pace of play was very slow and we didn't see any rangers. Greens were slow...even our food took forever to come. Staff was nice enough but it seems like it has gone downhill from the last time I played 5 years ago. Also do not like the changes that have been made to the course. August 8, 2014
Great course to play I love playing Grand Haven and always try to find an excuse to get out here and play. I'm not much of a weekend golfer, so I can't speak for weekends.. but playing on weekdays is very nice and almost always a nice quick pace. The fairways are always in great shape. The only complaint that I have is that sometimes certain holes on the course can get a bit mushy from the rain, if this is a problem for you I wouldn't recommend playing this course after a storm or days worth of rain. The greens are typically in good shape, some days slower than others but nothing to complain home about. The course is fun to play, many consider this a very difficult course.. which it is but it is certainly playable. If you're not consistent off the tee you will be in a lot of trouble all day. Very rarely will you lose balls, but due to the placement of the trees you're typically left just putting out. It can really hurt your score if you don't keep your drives down the fairway. There is not a lot of room to work with! I find the layout of the course to be interesting, but not way above average. It's a nice course, and certainly not boring.. but at the same time it is not a course that you remember the amazing characteristics. That being said, I find the par 3s above average. Some years are better than others in terms of mosquitoes. This year (2014) I haven't had any trouble whatsoever and didn't even bring bug spray. However, it would be a good idea to have bug spray on you just in case there are mosquitoes because if you have to buy it at the course, the prices are absolutely outrageous and it does not last long. You could easily wind up paying 10+ dollars just in bug spray. One thing I would like to add about this course is the friendliness of the employees. It's not just a typical big smile and talking overly friendly like a waitress at a cheap restaurant, but just cases where they really go out of their way to help you out. One day, my brother took my putter out of my bag without telling me.. I didn't realize it so on hole 1 I had to putt with a driver. The starter ran me out a putter so I could finish out my round correctly. Another day, I was only planning on playing 9 holes but ended up having my best 9 of the year and the guy working stayed late and told me to finish off my round without paying any more money. They really go above and beyond to make you feel welcomed, and this is why I consider them the best course in the Great Grand Rapids/West Michigan area(along with actually being a beautiful course) Many courses act like they are doing you a favor by letting you play on their course. All in all, course is in great condition, layout/characteristics of the course might be a bit below some of the other top notch courses in the area(yet better than others), staff is unmatched. If you can get a golfnow price at 45 or below it is a GREAT deal and well worth it. Paying the full 65 dollars that they charge outside of golfnow.. I would say play your favorite local course at that price. August 7, 2014
A Classic Course Spent some time in the woods but that is not unusual for Grand Haven. The course was busy but the pace of play was good. The greens were a little soft but they were in nice shape. I will play this course again this year. August 6, 2014
Superb!!!!! Tee to green this course is meticulously cared for. It's a great test of golf and very fair in the process. I play this course every year were vacationing 8 Holland Michigan. Kudos to the staff. August 6, 2014
perfect golf everything was great about the course.. it was straight through play with little waiting! Course was kept up well, I would definitely golf here again. July 20, 2014
Always a great place to play Grand Haven has always been a great place to play, it gives a good challenge with the tight fairways, and the greens are fun to putt with the breaks and pin placements. If you're in town and want a good golf experience, book a tee time here, you won't be disappointed. July 7, 2014
one of my favorite courses Always find this course to be in great shape and always find it to be challenging. Day started out slow due to a packed first tee box, but things moved quickly once we got to the second hole. Was a beautiful sunny day with a nice breeze. Everybody in our group enjoyed the day. Staff was friendly and very accomodating. July 5, 2014
