Beautiful Scenery

This course is in a beautiful area. The course is in great shape. Staff were very friendly. As an average golfer (7 handicap) the greens were too difficult for my liking. They rolled great. They have a lot undulation and depending upon pin placements, it can be very difficult. Other than that the course is a must see.

Great Layout

Just enough length and width of the FWs to provide some challenge, but ample room to shape shots and bomb the driver also. You definitely get the feeling of being remote while only miles away from Grand Rapids. Must play in my opinion.

Must Play

Once again I was reminded of the quality and beauty of Pilgrim's Run. I found a good price on Golf Now and jumped on the opportunity to play one of the best that West Michigan has to offer.

Don't miss it.

Pastoral

As a retired pastor, I appreciate the beauty and solitude that Pilgrim's Run affords. I also appreciate the way each hole references Pilgrim's Progress, a Christian classic by John Bunyan. The course is beautiful and challenging, sprinkled with wild turkey, red-headed woodpeckers, deer and other wildlife. Easily overlooked are the incredibly friendly staff and terrific practice facilities. Pilgrim's Run is, for me, a retreat.

Fantastic Course

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.

Excellent Track for the Money

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.
