Incredible Course and value

This course is an incredible value. Courses like this back home (North Carolina) would be well over $100/golfer. The greens run fast and true, but are receptive. The fairways are in immaculate shape, and the tee boxes are extremely well maintained. The pace of play is normal and the layout is challenging without being gimmicky. There are a couple of risk/rewards shots (the 18th is named "Entice") that make it fun to play over and over. The colors were beautiful when we played. Can't wait to go back soon.

A good day for golf

Had a great time playing Pilgrims Run.
The course was immaculate from Tee to green. Even the bunkers were in great shape considering all the rain in past 24 hours.
Some of us will be back next week.
Play it if you have opportunity

Great Destination

Pilgrim's Run is a real bargain gem. Course is conditioned as well as any I've played, and for the rates they charge it's a bargain. Course offers wide areas of play off the tee and features large severely sloped greens. On a week golf trip that featured 3 top 100 public courses, this was half of the group's favorite stop.

Mid-week round

Teed off at 3:50pm. Overall course was in nice shape. Front 9 was great and played it in 2 hours. Made the turn just before 6 and were only able to complete 5 holes by 7:30. Apparently we caught up to league play and they do not have a ranger out keeping speed up. We ended up bailing on the remainder of our round.

Course in very good shape but they seem to always put a lot of pin placements close to the edge of the green or next to ridges

Great course, ridiculously slow play

We played Pilgrim’s Run twice last week during our stay in West Michigan. It is a beautiful, challenging layout through rolling hills and dense woods. The condition of the course was excellent. I would highly recommend it based on these factors.

Pace of play is another matter. Our first round was on a Monday at mid-day. The first 9 holes moved pretty well, but things slowed down substantially on the back we 9.w We waited on every shot. We did finish in a fairly reasonable overall time, however. We decided to play again on Friday, later in the afternoon. There were a couple of open tee times in front of us, so we breezed through the first few holes. Then play came to a screeching halt. There were 3 groups on every hole. We slogged our way through 14 holes in just over 4 hours, then gave up and drove in. Very frustrating! No rangers anywhere to be found. Again, this is an absolutely excellent golf course, but they need to monitor and enforce a better pace of play.

Hidden Gem

Wonderful golf course in the middle of nowhere. It’s a true test, but not too tough for the average golfer. The fairways and greens were in excellent shape and the layout & design is right up there with some of the best courses. The facilities were very nice and everyone was very friendly. You will not be disappointed with this golf course and the cost to play is a steal for this caliber of golf!

Best Public Course in Lower Michigan

This course is always in tournament condition. The greens have the truest roll of any I have been on and you rarely see an old pitch mark in them. I played Arcadia early last month and this course is in such better shape for $130 cheaper than Arcadia. I would pick a free round at Pilgrims vs a free round at Arcadia. Both times I have played in the last two weeks we were done with 18 holes in just under 3 hours.

Golf fun

Wish the greens would hold a good shot to the green no rewards for a good shot! Don't need a divot tool because its nearly impossible to make a divot. Love to play here such a beautiful layout.
