The course is not nearly as bad as some reviews. Good value, easy layout, conditions were very playable.

Now I am one who is usually skeptical about bad reviews of golf courses. I usually take them with a grain of salt as I, as a 17 HCP, have few needs in a golf course. But this place is HORRIBLE. First, I had booked my tee time on and when I arrived the gentleman taking care of the shop was visibly offended that I had gotten such a discounted price and proceeded to call about three different people to complain about it, all while I was standing there.

I finally was able to get out onto the course and it was only a couple of holes before I thought i was the one who got ripped off! The fairways were unbelievably hard that at one point I tried to take a divot by swinging my club as hard as I could at the middle of a fairway and I couldn't even make a dent in the ground...I am dead serious. The greens were bad with 30-50% burned out spots.

Needless to say I will never return and I don't blame you if you are skeptical about this review, but wow this was one of the worst courses I have ever played on.

This course is not the greatest course out there but it is a nice, fun, family style course. I agree it is not near as good as it used to be, but in the mid-summer it turns out to be a good, solid course. It also has cheap rates. I'd go there if you are looking for a nice, little practice round, or ,to teach somone how to play for the first time.

wow, i'd rather get rabies shots than play here. They should pay the golfing public to play here. A suggestion to club, fertilizer, and new blades for the mower.

The two 5 star ratings for this course are off by about 4 1/2 stars. It is on a year to year lease and the conditions are terrible, the layout is not great to begin with.

Seriously, this is the worst course in West Michigan. Since it was sold in the early 2000's the course went from 3.5 stars to 1 star. Those 5 star post must be from the man that leases the course from Mr Meijer. Greens are not green and rough is dead grass. Stay clear.

This is a very nice fun golf course. Plenty of challenges and the staff are very helpfull.
