If I could I would give this course a zero or negative number. My son and daughter-in-law to me and her Dad here on father's day week. The condition of the fairways was ok, but the greens were horrible. However, all this aside, it was the staff that made this course poor. We were a foursome, and everyone else that day was playing in twosomes. We would occasionally let twosomes play through when they caught up to us. However, the course marshall came around and basically told us to play faster or skip holes. We told him we had been allowing people to play through and we would be stopping shortly (we were on hole 9) to get some lunch. He basically told us we didn't have time to stop and eat, that it wasn't acceptable for us to do that, and to get moving or get off. After that hole, we stopped and very quickly went into the clubhouse, got a candy bar, some water, and were about to leave. My son commented to the manager how he felt the response was inappropriate. We were basically told on Fridays they normally don't schedule foursomes and everyone else was playing faster as they were a twosome, and no, refunds wouldn't be offered if we wanted to just stop after nine holes. So we went on, skipped hole #10 and by the end of 18 holes, we had people catching us again. Even though we had a good time with our kids, I will NEVER play here again. The staff honestly was rude, and it was their mistake at scheduling a foursome in the middle of a bunch of twosomes. So if you do play here after reading this, I caution you to ask what types of parties will be behind you, as you will be told the same thing, hurry up or get out.

The staff and management of this course are terrible. They send people off on the 10th hole in front of you. They are arrogant and forget who the customer is. The course is fine but not worth the playing due to the way it is run. I will never go back.

This is a great track. Beautiful elevation changes. Fun and challenging. Clubhouse is nothing more than a pro shop and snack bar, but who cares? Never had an issue with the staff. Being closed on Sunday keeps this from being an elite Grand Rapids course.
