This course is a ‘designed’ golf course, meaning it’s not thrown together. Someone put some thought into the layout of each hole, fairway, tee, and overall landscape. It is challenging, but not overwhelming. I have played many courses in the Grand Rapids area and this course ranks among the best. The fairways are cut nicely with a fair amount of bunkers and water hazards. If you are tired of the same old, same old, do yourself a favor and give Wallinwood Springs a try. I think you will be pleased.

This review is for the back 9 only as I sneaked away for an hour after lunch the other weekday afternoon. Staff gave me a good heads up to play the back for a quick 9 and they were right, I played in about an hour.
Back 9 was a little soggy still and the blue tees were set up in tough spots but the back 9 is a great test. Straight driver or 3 wood is needed on nearly all the par 4 and 5 tee shots as OB is usually water or marsh on both sides. Leaves weren't an issue for me, greens were in good shape and looked to be aerified about 7 to 14 days ago.
Make sure to check out their mobile website for smartphone GPS and flyovers cause on 10, 12, 16 and 17 a crooked driver could hurt much more than a stock straight 5 iron to hybrid shot.

Wallingwood Springs is a lot of fun.
Wallinwood Springs is really fun. As the course description suggests, it is really two different courses. The back nine, in particular, has some really interesting and challenging holes. I play this course at least once a year and always enjoy it. If the maintenance were a little more consistent, it would be a real gem.
