Braeside Golf Course
The greens were awesome.
The course plays tough when you go astray, as it should. The greens were great, true and fast.

Greens Need Work
Greens were hard as a rock and it looked like the cups hadn't been changed in a week. The course used to be nice but it seems they are letting it go.

Very fun course to play
This course is not the most difficult course, nor the best kept I have played on, but it is certainly a fun course to take my friends out to play. I play here often and the staff is always friendly and the drinks are very reasonably priced. The only thing that bothers me is that even with a good drive or lay-up shot right down the middle of the fairway, many times you end up on a hill at strange angles. I like the hills in the course, but there are so many of them that it becomes a chore at times. I feel like if I hit a great shot down the middle I shouldn't have to worry that often about what angle the hill my ball landed on is at.

Braeside has been a secret delight for many people. Great value, nicely maintained but fairways are not always lush everywhere on the course. So that is reflected in the price. Bunkers are not soft, many bumps and hills and dales, water. Greens are fine, medium fast, and usually tricky. No whole is easy: if putting is easy, then there's fairway trickery. This will challenge the best golfer, even though there are no black tees. So what. Hit your 3 iron then. This remains my go-to

Great Test of Golf.
Braeside will test your game, having played many tournaments
and a regular "trunk slammer" rotation, Braeside has a mix of it all
with 18 as a tough test Par 4 as the #1 handicap hole. With true greens, it's always a pleasure to play a one of a kind course.

Nice place, needs some work
Used to be one of my favorite courses to play up in Grand Rapids. However, just played it in July 2013 and the tee boxes and greens were rock hard and in need of some watering / aeration. And the gnats/bugs on and around the course were really, really bad to the point of distracting you from playing golf. Hopefully they can find a way to correct these issues and get this course back into shape.

This course is fun layout
This is a public golf course. The greens that are in shade are not so good. The tee boxes were in rough shape. For the money it is a fun layout that will challenge you off the tee to keep straight. The greens were medium speed but the ones in the sun rolled better.
