Thoroughbred Golf Club

5900 Water Rd Rothbury, MI 49452-7939 Phone:   (231) 894-3939 URL:   Course Website

Designed by renowned architect Arthur Hills, the Thoroughbred Golf Club is known for its beauty and solitude. With bent grass tees, fairways and greens, the Thoroughbred offers 18 championship holes that sprawl over 240 acres of rolling Michigan woodside. It wraps around the Gold Rush Indoor Waterpark and is the only golf course in Michigan where horseback riders have the right of way on cart paths.

The strategic layout is challenging but rewarding to golfers of all abilities. Play it yourself and see why you'll want to come back again and again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Quite a Challenge This course is T-O-U-G-H !!! In very nice shape. If you think your a big hitter, play from the Gold on this course!! OMG Some extremely challenging holes with no let-up. Tremendous piece of property that could be amazing with some TLC. The practice range needs lots of attention. Told us the "picker is broken", so we had to drive out on the range and pick up our own practice balls......those balls have been out there a long, long time. No beverage cart was a bummer - on a perfect day. We were basically by ourselves on the course though. Check out the greens before you hit - lots of buried elephants give HUGE undulations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by I went to a golf course and a rave broke out I picked the wrong weekend - or right one, depending upon your point of view - to play the Thoroughbred for the first time. I played the first day of the Electronic Forest Festival, a Woodstock-like music festival that takes over the small town of Rothbury and its surrounding fields. My GPS took me right through the festival, so I had to sweet talk my way through numerous roadblocks to get to the course. The hassle was worth it. I came away really impressed with the golf experience of the Thoroughbred. There are tons of places to lose balls, notably the very poorly conceived second hole, a long par 4 around a wetland. There are no flat lies in that fairway, leaving high-handicaps no choice but to layup instead of taking on the carry over the hazard to reach the green. Beyond that design snafu, golfers will love the scenery and backwoods setting of the course. The new owner of Double JJ Resort is working hard to bring course conditions up to the standards it used to offer. I'd take the Thoroughbred for a ride again, no doubt. July 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by JJ Ranch Great golf course, have played before many times. Was a little disappointed upon arrival was informed the front nine was closed due to aeration process. Other than that it was great. September 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great course, better value We played 36 holes on a Saturday morning and found the course to be in great shape, very challenging, and the staff could not have been friendlier. Our only wish was that there was a beverage cart out on the course. Other than that, it is a great course for a great price. I highly recommend making the trip! August 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Raw Beauty Lovely piece of real estate. Greens in good condition, but you are beginning to see weeds encroaching in the bunkers. Staff was very friendly and the pace of play moved pretty quickly for a Sunday afternoon. I definitely will play again with GolfNow discount but would not pay the full price for the course.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Well worth the money I hadn't played this course in 15 years and had forgotten what a nice track it is. It is evident that there are shortcuts being taken on the course up keep (i.e. the fairways are mown on the long side), but they're not charging $90.00 anymore either. I would say its probably one of the best $40-50.00 courses one could play... August 14, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not worth the money. This course is a very challenging course and the course has a great layout. But the upkeep and care for the course is definitely not what it should be. I played this course about 10 years ago and it was clean, green, and was known as one of the premier courses in west Michigan. But since then it is evident that the attention to detail for the maintainence of this course has drastically decreased. August 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by One of the BEST courses in the area! GREAT COURSE. Fun. Beautiful views!!! Come ready to play. Very difficult if you play the blue or gold tees. Double JJ Ranch is a wonderful play for the entire family! Things to do for everyone. August 9, 2014
