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

Very nice

I don’t love the look of houses lining the golf course but they certainly don’t affect play where they are and seem to be very nice homes. Carts have GPS that are a litttle restrictive to get to stray shots, but that was only a minor inconvenience.

Greens were fast and holes that happened to be playing into a strong wind were very long.
