This might, dollar for dollar, be Michigan's best. Great layout, very well taken care of, and a staff that is courteous and customer first oriented. Well worth the quick trip outside of Grand Rapids.

If your in Western Michigan, this is a track you can’t miss. The course layout is challenging yet extremely fair. Lots of elevation changes, and twist and turns. The staff is extremely pleasant, and the pace of play is well managed.

Only drawback is that you can only use the bucket of balls you receive off of the hitting mats and not the grass tees that are available.

First class experience for my first time at Pilgrim's Run. A little hike from GR, but shook off the cobwebs with a free bucket of balls included with my 18. The starter was very helpful, and there were marshalls across the course to help out and ensure that everything was up to snuff.

Beautiful course. From the trees to the sand and lakes, it was difficult but fair.

Excellent course and great amenities at Pilgrims Run.....just classy all the way around. I highly recommend playing here...a bit pricey, but worth it. Course conditions are impeccable. You get a bucket of balls with your green fees, so come early and warm up if you can. They do it right at Pilgrims Run!

Always first stop on our Michigan golf trip in May and October. Get off plane at Grand rapids airport and head up to Pilgrims Run for a round on our way to Ludington. Then when we head back stop on our way back to Airport. Best value and course in Michigan. Friendly staff and great rates. If you love golf you got to play Pilgrims Run. Looking forward to our 2018 trip.
