Golf

Fairways and greens were good but off the fairway alot of thick quack grass. Narrow in places accuracy is important. Lots of woods to enjoy and fall colors.

Need a Marshall

Nice track, greens were in good shape, but the pace of play was way too slow. Finally we skipped a hole and a guys said, "oh, we didn't realize were holding everyone up. I guess we could pick it up a little." If there had been a Marshall pushing a little it would have been great.

Tranquil round

This course is not easy by any means, but it is always in good shape, the only crazy hole is #2, an extremely difficult that is a little extreme in my mind. Every hole on the course is away from other holes which is wonderful, so you are almost alone all the time as you play a hole! I have here many times, and I will always come back when I am on the west-side of the state.

Enjoyable course

Typically good Arthur Hills course. Challenging but fair. Great greens and overall in good condition but tees and bunkers could use some additional attention. Need to keep the ball straight, thick trees and lots of swamps. Each hole is completely by itself, you never see another hole. Very secluded. Heavy rain the day we played so we were by ourselves on the course. Course drained well and service was excellent. Great rate (hot deal) on Golf Now.

TLC

Staff very friendly. Course has some great holes and is a nice layout. Some blind shots but course book was very helpful. Overall a good value, course itself could just use a little TLC. But considering everything would definitely play there again.

Best greens around. New pro Chris is awesome and very accommodating. I actually live on a course nearby and plan on moving to this course next year 20 minutes away from home.

Just Okay. Rather gimmicky with some Mickey Mouse greens.

Definitely requires course knowledge. Few holes are rather gimmicky, meaning just poor design. A few greens were like miniature golf, only missing the clown face. Bring a very good GPS system with you. Overall, I wouldn't rush to play here again.

Don't miss it

Golf Now had a great price so we thought we would try something new. Wonderful layout, great condition on greens and fairways. Don't be disappointed with a poor score, it is long and difficult, enjoy the surroundings. Wooded and hilly but a ton of fun. Don't miss it!

Another perfect morning

We were able to get the first tee time on Monday, my son and in played 18 in 3 hours and 15 minutes and enjoyed what I consider to be the best course in the West Michigan, the conditions were perfect, the greens were fresh cut and when we arrived at 7:00 the pro brought us out our cart as we pulled in. Course layout, condition and service all in one package, well done.

Needs work

Long awaited chance to play left a lot to be desired. Out of the way location, associated with horseback riding/water park (Double JJ Ranch) did not impress. Understanding that new ownership has only been in place 2 years, there is reason to believe it will get better. Designer(Arthur Hils) was brought back to review and advise changes. While the layout is scenic, the conditions on tee boxes, fairways, and most all of course was fair at best.Following wet spring everything was extremely dry even around low lying areas of swamp and lake. Despite everything being so arid, the greens were the only other positive point of note. Very true and fair. To be fair the course has not been taken care of probably because they clearly have not attracted the business needed to support the Double JJ property.. More attention to golf only would go a long way to making it a challenging nice place to play
