Pilgrims Run Golf Club
Almost worthy of that fifth star
I tend to only reserve five stars for courses out of this world, but I came awfully close to handing one to this out-of-the-way gem north of Grand Rapids. It's that good. The conditions were excellent. The routing fun and interesting. And I loved the finishing hole, a short par 4 with a risk-reward tee shot around or over a pond. The big selling point, however, is just how affordable it is, for the caliber of golf you're getting. This is a $120 course at a resort up north. But since it sits isolated all by itself - a golf island, if you will - the reasonable price is what ultimately attracts golfers.

Great Golf Course
First time playing and was well worth it. A lot of great golf holes and in great condition. Staff was very nice and attentive. Will play again.

Good addition to any Michigan itinerary.
While looking for a course to fill out an itinerary that included Tullymore in Michigan, I found this hidden gem in Pierson. From the middle of the first fairway, and having paid $55 in peak season, I knew it was going to be a good day. The Kris Schumacker and Mike DeVries design uses more than 400 acres as the routing rolls through the woods with just enough undulation to make you think twice about club selection on certain approach shots. Be sure and ask about the “Four for the Price of Three” special that they offer in May and the first two weeks of September.

Unbelievable scenery cut into the wilderness.
If you enjoy beautiful scenery and wildlife, this is the course for you. Bent grass all the way around. You can literally putt 100 yards out from the green. This is a full blown championship course. The pictures on line does not do justice for what it really looks like in person.
