Wallin Wood in April
First time out for the 2015 had us at Wallingwood in Jenison MI. Picture perfect day with the sun out and 75 degrees.
Front nine is a bit more open than the back. When the late spring rains come, the back will have even more water surrounding the fairways and greens. More mosquitos too!
Pace of play was very slow. Took nearly five hours to play 18 holes. Would have been nice to have a ranger out to speed things up a bit. This course should take no more than 4:00 to 4:15. Even less if empty.
Greens were quicker than expected for mid-April...that is a good thing in my book.

Fun Course,Beautiful Scenery
I've only played this course twice, but I loved it both times. The holes are relatively straightforward for the most part, but they have enough undulations and hazards to keep it fun and challenging. The track itself is well maintained, although one hole has earned a reputation for catching a lot of goose droppings (which I didn't see this time). Set along the grand river, the areas around the course are generally beautiful, particularly looking out over the water on your somewhat lengthy trek from the 11th green to the 12th tee in late afternoon.

Fallen from grace
The course has a fun layout, especially the back nine. However, the course maintenance is terrible. It's clear they are squeezing as much money as they can and care nothing for the quality of the course. If you're looking for a last minute round, it will do, otherwise I'd schedule some where else.

Tough Back 9
the back 9 is challaging with lots of water and narrow fairways.

Enjoyable round, the staff was extremely helpful. Allowed us to play as a single, with my wife riding along. Very enjoyable to play right along the Grand river.

course needs work
course needs to be better maintained. front nine is okay but the back needs work. cart paths very rough need to be repaved rocks in the bunkers greens are okay.

Needs some work
I think the course needs an influx of some money. Traps not maintained, dead branches not picked up, just not in good shape.

Ranger a waste of money. Did not speed up play. Weed traps vs sand. Red stake s down
