Beautiful course and very fun to play
Overall it is a great course and a challenging one at that. The greens are fast and the fairways tend to have a lot of roll to them. Extremely well maintained course and very friendly staff.

Course was in very nice condition. Greens were equal to many country clubs. I played alone in less than 3 hours, which was nice. Will definitely return.

Nice links style course

Fast greens, fun times
Macatawa Legends is a great comeback story. There were plenty of rumors that the relatively flat course was being shuttered during the height of the recession, but it never did, according to former GM and course designer Ray Hearn, who I met for lunch after my round. The course was bustling with golfers the day I played. The greens were lightning fast. And the neighborhood appeared to be filling in nicely with homes that, thankfully, don't intrude on the round. Hearn played it relatively straightforward with wide fairways bordered by thick fescue. Water intrudes on all four of his par 5s. His finishing holes, the tough par-4 ninth and par-5 18th, run on either side of a pond. Macatawa Legends survived for a reason. It's a real asset to Holland, one of west Michigan's great summer lake towns.

This course is extremely well maintained and very user friendly. Wide fairways and big greens make it feel like you can spray the ball a bit but still find it. The greens are very very nice and protect par for the course. They are smooth and really fast yet hold iron shots if well struck. One of the nicest courses in the area!

Fantastic Course and Experience

Beautiful and Great Course!
Great facility at Macatawa Legends, with an amazing clubhouse and great views around the course. The course its self was in great shape and had perfect greens and fairways. I highly suggest this course to any and all golfers!

Fun in the wind
Played on a really windy day (25+ mph)as storms were coming in but was a great time. Course is in excellent shape and greens were lightning fast especially down wind. Everything was great, staff was friendly, food was good. Great experience.
Hi buntsingle43, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Hopefully you took advantage of the wind when it was blowing in your favor on some of your tee shots. We strive hard to provide a great experience and we are glad that you had a great one. We look forward to seeing you in the future, MacatawaManagement
GREAT VALUE- PLAYING AGAIN SOON!
We booked a last minute mid afternoon tee time on the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend. Expected play to be slow, but after #1, we never saw the walking twosome that played ahead of us the rest of the day (as a riding threesome). We also didn't have anyone pushing us- for the record- and played 18 within 4 minutes of recommended pace of play. Going back soon!
Glad you had a great time, we will see you again soon
A real gem
First time playing Macatawa Legends and will definitely be back. I'll start of by saying how friendly the staff was from the golf shop, to the bag drop and all the food and beverage staff...one of the best I have experienced. Next was the course which was in excellent shape and a fun layout. Greens were fantastic and faster than the private club I play back home...kudos to the Superintendent. Their carts have GPS and it takes a little getting used to the areas the carts let you go, but we figured it out after the second hole (they won't let you get too close to green or drive in fescue), but if it make the course be in as great of shape as it was it is no problem. Had a great sandwich afterward. If I lived in the area it would be my go to club...spectacular
Hi shaeper123, Thanks for taking the time to write a review and thanks for the kind words! At Macatawa we strive hard to provide an excellent golf experience at a great value! We are glad that you figured out the GPS as you need it when you play the course for the first time. We hope to see you again , MacatawaManagement
Decent course, but not at full price
There was no indication that they had just aerated the greens and cut down all the heather (this was in September still)...I would have been upset if I paid full price. This was also my first time returning since the course first opened, and I have heard a lot of good things about condition (hard to gauge with punched greens). The facilities are top notch, but the course has a little growing up to do still. Also, the restaurant has absolutely nothing to offer for post round food.
Water, Water Everywhere
Excellent fairway conditions on this link style course, but they aerated greens 2,3 & 4 and almost ruined them with deep grid-like gouges all across the greens. It affected your putting unfortunately...very disappointing. Otherwise the course was in great shape. The staff was very friendly and the pace of play was quick. Very little elevation changes, but tons of water on almost every hole. The play book was real handy especially when playing it the first time. Scenery had few trees, but a lot of gaudy looking homes! Club house is awesome with ballrooms for corporate events, etc. This style of course was fun to play and a nice change from many of the courses that are cut through forests in our areas and to the north. I will play it again but will wait for the GolfNow discounts.
Actually it was holes 4 and 5, we had a hydrolic leak on a mower which caused the lines. We punched those two greens to help the healing process.
Out of Towner Enjoyed this course a lot
What a great course especially for the money. Course was in fantastic shape with fast greens. Very friendly golf shop staff, I had a bunch of questions and they took the time to answer them in a friendly fashion. We were a twosome and were paired with a couple members and had a great time with them.
Great Time/Great Course
Went their with a group of friends and had a great time. Course was in excellent shape with fast greens. Staff was very friendly and had a great sandwich afterward. Look forward to playing again soon
Great course in Holland MI. Course is fabulous and sites are incredible. Course was challenging but not possible
Links Gem in Holland Michigan
Course was in great condition. Great test of links golf, receptive large fairways, large greens that rolled true and enough water hazards to keep your attention. I have now found my second great course to play during our family vacation in Holland Michigan. Hopefully this track says public. Thanks ML staff.
What a great experience
Really enjoyed my day at Macatawa Legends, first time and won't be my last. First the staff was very friendly, from the cart kids to beer cart girl to a guy who looked like he was doing cleaning. The course was great, good layout, plush fairways and fast greens. Afterward stayed for a sandwich and had a very good Reuben,. Great experience and a great value.
One of the best in the area
Course was in GREAT shape (which is the case every time I've played Macatawa Legends). Price is a tad high for the area, but it's less expensive than other area courses such as The Ravines.
