What happened to Gull Lake View?

Wow! It’s the end of May and there are still top dressing holes on the greens? I’ve always liked GLV be disappointed in fairways and greens. Not sure I’d go back at any price.

First Time Playing

Will play it again.

We played as a twosome on a Saturday morning with tee time at 8:42 AM. We started right on time and had a great time playing the front nine. The course condition was great despite the rain that had passed through an hour earlier. As expected after the rain it was carts on paths only or when necessary on the rough. We completed the front nine in just under 2 hours.
We took a short break and got a couple of sandwiches to go from the restaurant.
When we got to the 10th tee a foursome had just teed off so we had to wait for them to hit 2nd shot. From that point forward we had to wait on every hole. There was at least one complete hole open in front of the foursome but they never considered letting us play through. We ended up taking just over 3 hours to play the back nine.
Overall we had a great time and look forward to playing again, hopefully on a weekday.

Great Course, Great Resort!

Gull Lake View East is one of the most scenic courses in the area. But don't let the beauty fool you, this course can be a challenge. Lots of water holes, large bunkers and large rolling greens. The Gull Lake View folks put a lot of pride in providing the best courses in the area and in my opinion in the state. You will not be disappointed with the East Course or any of their other gems. Keeps me coming back year after year.

Gull Lake East

This ia a great course! It is well maintained with new GPS golf carts. The greens were slower then I care for them to be. The course setting is beautiful as it snakes throuhnthe wooded setting.

Accuracy premium

The east course demanded accuracy over distance. The course was in great shape and the greens had almost completely recovered from aeration.

Poor Customer Service

My friends and I have been meeting at Gull Lake View Report for the past 10 years. We love the facilities and the assortment of courses, but in the past couple years we have had some service issues. The latest is regarding our set tee times. We were asked to reserve our rooms and tee times about a year prior to our trip - AND put down a deposit. Recently, they changed our tee times, and they do not work out in our favor. Not only have they not left enough time to get from one course to the other (we play 36 holes per day), but they moved us from the highly publicized Stoatin Brae to Gull Lake East. If you know these courses, you realize that Gull Lake East is the least desirable course they have to offer. You also realize that 4-hours rounds are impossible. When we called to express our concerns, they told us to pound salt. Is that a way to treat a long-time client. I think NOT!!! Obviously, the demand to play at these facilities is causing them to not care about their customers. Very short-term thinking.

Terrible Course Management

Very poor pace of play. I called the clubhouse on hole 11 to ask them to send a ranger out as we were in a major traffic jam. The ranger did come out but did not fix the problem so we ended up leaving after the 12th and a 3 hour front 9. I love Gull Lake View golf courses but DO NOT PLAY ON FRIDAY OR SATURDAY, VERY SLOW!

A Great Course with An Even Better Staff

The course is always great, but the Staff, especially Wes in the clubhouse, make this place a wonderful stop in Southwest Michigan.

If you want a fantastic spring or summer golf vacation, this group of courses will make for a diverse and pleasant experience. Come visit, you will probably come back again next year.

Top Notch Course in West Michigan!

I have played all of the Gull Lake View Courses with the exception of the new Stoatin Brae opening at the end of July. I have to say the East Course is probably the 2nd most challenging course but it also has some of the best scenery. Speed of play is usually not a problem at the GLV courses. Our round Saturday saw us come up on one slower group that let us play through. On busy days, the course rangers are periodically checking on speed of play and offer friendly suggestions to slower players. There are multiple cold water jugs placed throughout the course, several drink vending machines, and on busy days a beverage cart makes the rounds. You cannot go wrong with the East Course at GLV. With lots of water holes and unbelievable scenery...especially in the fall, you will fall in love with the East Course as well as the other 5 courses.

Great Layout & Condition

One of the Gull Lake courses ( Stonehedge No. & So., Bedford Valley, Gull Lake View North & South)
North course is the one to play if you can. Always well maintained.
Only downside is that it is a very popular course and slow play can be an issue. Some people have never heard of the term "Ready Golf"!
Bedford Valley is the next course you should play of this group; you won't be disappointed!
