I really enjoyed the course
I had a great day of golf and can't wait to play again. Everything and everyone was wonderful.
Great course, great value
The course was in remarkably good shape considering that we had storms (including a tornado) go through the area the day before. Greens were true and fast. Some standing water in a few fairways but it never came into play. Course is long and I am not a big hitter so I chose to play the gold tees. If you are like me, be prepared to hit a lot of long irons and fairway woods.
Where was ranger?
We enjoyed playing this course even though play was very slow. Two groups in front of us had five players playing from the tips when they couldn't hit their drives more than 150 yards. The group in front of us had three players, but were hitting two balls apiece. We were a twosome and sometimes had three groups on one tee box. We weren't allowed to go ahead because of the group of five players!! Where was the ranger? Very frustrating.....
Great course and condition, beware the GPS carts and junior camps
Course was in great shape, greens were great. The negative is that the course uses a GPS system in their carts that controls where you can and cannot go on the course, and it's a little overzealous. Numerous times it cut out the cart and made you back out of an area; not green side or in soft spots, but IN THE FAIRWAY 30-40 yards short of the green and moving to the path, the same areas their own greens crew was driving through. Extremely annoying. If I ever play here again I'm walking.
Also, I had one of he first slots of the day, and on the 9th hole was told that on the back nine I would run into some junior camp golfers. I fully support junior golf so it was no problem, but the campers were for the most part completely unsupervised in multiple groups on the course. The only time supervision was around was to move them from hole to hole. I waited on 4 holes for 5-10 minutes each waiting on the juniors, who did not move aside as I was told they would. The point of a first thing in the morning tee time is to get through the course as quickly as possible, not to be delayed by others put out ahead of you on the back, let alone unsupervised juniors. If you're going to do that to your customers at least let them know further ahead of time or when booking, or supervise it better. Nothing like getting slowed down because the course is pulling two revenues at once.
Thank you for your review and feedback. We're glad to hear you found the conditions of our course to be in great shape and we apologize for not letting you know ahead of time about our junior campers. We hope this will not deter you from playing with us again in the future!
I grew up in W. Michigan, but hadn't heard of Macatawa Legends until launching the GolfNow.com search. What a gem...just a ton of fun to play. The entire set up is extremely impressive.
Couldn't agree more, overlooked by many in the area. One of the best!
Thank you for your 5 Star review! We are thrilled to hear that you were pleased with our course and we hope to have you back for another round soon!
I've played this course before and it's normally during "open" week because of the links style setup & blowing winds! Only two holes in the back had a problem with the remnants of standing water.
Thanks for the review and feedback. We're glad to have provided your game with a bit of a challenge! We hope you enjoyed your round with us and decide to come play with us again in the future.
Very busy on Thursday 1pm
Pace of play started a little slow but picked up nicely
Course is in good shape
I was put with a twosome an really had a good time
Thank you, 2412vo! We're happy to hear that you had a good time! Thanks for the review and thank you for playing with us!
A little disappointed
This was an overall pleasant experience where the facilities are concerned and I can see why moderate level golfers would enjoy the course....... that being said, This is not a "destination" golf course. The shot values are only so-so. The property the course sits on is average. I had an early morning tee time and the pro shop staff was extremely late arriving to work......so much so that a kid working the carts had to get us started that day. While I appreciate the course maintenance, my round was also routinely interrupted by the mowing staff that was "more" concerned about their mowing than my playing. Based on the reviews I would have thought this was an amazing property with amazing shot values, etc. ......not the case.
Very Nice course
Played it on Saturday 6/11 through Golf Now. Very good price for this course. It was really nice being only 3 miles from Lake Michigan as is was quite a bit cooler than inland location. We would play this course again.
We're happy to have you on the course! Thanks for your feedback. Looking forward to having you back!
Great shape. Very challenging which I like
Great course massive greens and great fairways. Links course with lots of different clubs to use!
We're excited to hear about your experience with us and glad we could give you a bit of a challenge! Thanks for the 5 star review!

A little cool but great time
Great course weather was a little cool but had a great time first time playing this course and it was a lot of fun
Hi Dennis6196072, Thanks for taking time to leave a great review. We are happy to hear you had a great time playing the course. We hope to see you back soon! Best Wishes, MacatawaManagement
always great course
Course in great shape this late in the year. Greens had already been plugged but weren't horrible. Staff very friendly. Homes along course are very upscale. Played in 40 mph wind gusts so it was quite challenging on some holes.GPS showed water next to green on a few holes and it actually ran in front of green a bit. Definitely will play again.
Hi bpawielski, Thanks for taking time to leave a great review. We are happy to hear our staff was very friendly. We can't wait to see you again! Best Wishes, MacatawaManagement

Great course superb conditions! 18 very well designed holes. I would definitely play again.
Good local course that is always challenging. Wind can greatly influence your score and how the course plays.
Hi mstoel, Thanks for taking the time to review our course. The tip you left will help out any future golfers. Thanks again, We hope to see you soon! MacatawaManagement
Lots of Water
Beautiful, moderately difficult, and well maintained course. Lots of water and par 4s play long from the tips. Only two of us, but we played behind a foursome the entirety of the round. They had no one in front but didnt let us play through, so this really the only complaint i could conjure up.
Hi u000007311926, Thank you for the kind review. We are happy you found our course well maintained and beautiful. We are sorry the group ahead of you didn't let you play through, unfortunately we wish there is more we can do.. We hope we see you soon! Regards, MacatawaManagement
