One more thing....

The directions to the next hole were somewhat lacking for those not familiar with the course.

Great course for the money!

Really nice, challenging course in Holland, MI that was made all the better with the greens fees being under $50 on a Monday morning. Fairways are wide, so there's room to hit driver on most holes, but there is trouble if you miss them. Course plays long, especially when the wind blows. Almost 6500 yards from the whites! Greens were firm and true, but not super speedy so you could be aggressive with putts. Really liked playing here, and with the value, would consider it maybe the best option in the area.

Phogman

Course is in outstanding condition from tee to greens.
Tee boxes are nice and they even repair divots with sand to maintain - lot of courses won’t because sand dulls mower blades..
Rough is deep off off second cut but fair and the fairways generous. Greens are primo and true with no gimmicky stuff to deal with.
Water hazards are unique in that they have shallow banks and are clean so you can retrieve wayward balls close to shore...a rare find at most courses.
While the layout is open (very few trees) the houses do not come into play, which is nice for home owners and players alike. The open setting makes it tough in the wind, however.
Staff are all top notch. Even had a mower compliment my grinding save of par on one hole. THAT never happens!
Beautiful club house and course allows walking. There are some long treks from green to tee but ‘walker paths’ make it easier.
This course is a great value to play. While there are no spectacular ‘signature’ holes, it’s a nice track that offers a nice assortment of tees to play from.

Good Course

Good course, average layout, pretty flat with large greens. Just moved to Michigan and wanted to get out a play some courses with the good weather. Round was little slow and was nothing really for food and drink...they did say they are remodeling so it will probably be better soon. Course was in good shape for early in the year. Will be back and re rate in the summer.

Best fairways in the area. Greens were just punched but still were true. Tee boxes were nice and level, challenging layout but fair. Will be back for sure

First time

Incredible course. Greens very fast. Tee to green perfect. Rough will cost you a stroke. One of best courses that I have played in Michigan. I have played almost every top course in Michigan and this is as nice as any Gaylord or Traverse area course

Michigan stop

Great course, wide open, plenty of driving room, gps enabled carts, very helpful a few blind shots. Greens were great, very fast, always try and stay below the hole. If in the area, make a stop. Only downsize was the pace of play, pushing 3 hours for front nine, stopped after the twelfth hole because of the pace.

This course is beautiful

One of the best maintained courses I have played this year. Greens were fast but playable. All in all on a scale of 1 to 10, it gets a 10.

Challenging but fair

Played with two members so had course knowledge.

Carts have iPad like GPS mapping so never an issue knowing what is ahead or how far to get over things of water in fairway which are common. Simply tap on where you would like the yardage and it show you distance to spot as well as remaining to pin.

Greens are fast but no wild hilly breaks so test them in the putting green.

Nice electric carts come with towel cooler and bucket of sand.

Cart paths are concrete around tees and greens.

May not allow public play forever but loads of fun

Absolutely spectacular

If anyone is reading reviews to see if this course is worth it. Stop right here. I’m home from LA for a few weeks in Kalamazoo and I drove up with my dad and some of his buddies. The 70 min drive from Kzoo to Holand was perfect and the course was PERFECT. Greens were just sanded but I didn’t think about it twice. 1-18 are all spectacular with a beautiful surrounding community. Staff was great, we teed’d off at 9am on a Tuesday and never had an issue with pace or course matinance. I must have seen 20 happy employees working on the course. Thank you macatawa for the breathtaking views and feels
