Lake Doster Golf Club
Great Value. Worth the drive.
The ~30min drive from Kalamazoo was worth it to play this course which has plenty of great deals available on golfnow. Pro shop attendant was nice enough to provide a complimentary course guide. Bonus! Will return, especially for scenery in late summer/fall months.

Fabulous golf club
This course is one of the finest I have played, and my wife and I have played in 31 states so far. The course is challenging, while being fair and the scenery is to die for. The staff made us feel welcome, but the truly special part was the way the local members treated us. We left this course feeling that our next trip will be back to this hidden gem. The signature hole is a simple little 88 yard par 3 with water on three sides and three sand traps added for good measure. You will love it.

It was a very nice course it was well maintained and in great sharp for the time of year. Lots of beautiful holes. The par 3 they call the monster was a fun hole. Water in the front and water in the back with about a 80 foot drop. I know it's fall but you couldn't get anything hot to eat at the turn.

Great course, not so great food/service
Great course. Don't expect a lot with food and beverage. Had a coupon that included hot dog and chips - it was not honored. Staff said they're not cooking today, you'll be lucky if they do. It was Sunday at noon. Similar occurrence on a different day also. Overall, Great course, but don't expect much in terms of food.

Played behind a threesome which didn't bother me they offered me to play through twice and I did the second time. If you get off the fairway some of the grass is quite long makes if hard to find your ball. Slows you down a little. Worst part was the greens ,doesn't anyone who plays there ever fix a ball mark? I could fix three or four besides mine on every hole and I'm sure I left some.

Nice course, tougher than it is on paper
I've been to Lake Doster several times now and I'm always pleased with the course. Every now and again it can get a little backed up pace-wise but that could also be due to the amount of trouble on the course! Lots of areas to waste strokes here, and the greens are pretty tricky to read..generally quite speedy too. Don't get careless on the really short holes but don't get greedy either because you might write a triple down on the card!
