Best course in the Grand Rapids area! Course conditions are unmatched for a public golf course, they rival any private course in the city. Holes 1, 10 and 18 are always in fantastic shape now after the drainage improvements. If you are going to play in GR make sure you play here!

This course has the potential to be great, but until they figure out the flooding it will be average. Holes 1, 10, and 18 are rarely playable. It always seems to be crowded. The rest of the holes are very nice and well maintained.

great track but overpriced for a Muni... Pace of play in afternoon and evening is brutal. Rangers do nothing to speed up play, so play early if possible. Don't go here if it has rained hard in the last week, usually they have 3 holes under water, 1, 10 and 18 which are converted to par 3's most of the time.

Well maintained course, except for the watering. Can become very dry which makes divots and ball marks slow to heal. Very friendly staff inside. Impossible to get out early. Grounds crew starts a bit late and can back up the tee times as you have to wait.$$$$

wont find a better value......ever

This is a top-notch, mature, well-maintained gem in the city. Pulling into the entrance, between two factories, you will be amazed at what you find hidden behind there. Fantastic course, maintained by Kent County parks. The only way that you know that you are at a county park is when you go in the clubhouse, everything else about the course is great!

Best Kept Secret in West Michigan

This is the only course owned by Kent County, and they keep it in fabulous shape. Nice rolling layout with challenging, but fair, holes with lots of variety in layout. Mature trees cover the entire course, and the fairways and greens are dotted manicured bunkers and water hazards. Best bang for your buck, hands down.
