About Double JJ Resort

The Double JJ Resort in Rothbury is part dude ranch, part golf resort and part water park, a mix that can entertain all ages and tastes. The 2,000-acre resort features rustic cabins and log homes nestled in the "Back Forty". Just up the road, there are suites, condos the Loft Hotel, all historic accommodations with western-themed decor and modern amenities. The resort offers lodging from luxury suites with fireplaces and jacuzzis to a quiet retreat in the campground or cabins. Dog-friendly rooms are a part of the frontier (the main check-in). Families gravitate to the Gold Rush indoor water park and outdoor water park, horseback riding, mini-golf and more. Golfers can tackle the scenic and demanding Thoroughbred by Arthur Hills or the recently purchased Grand View Golf Club two miles away in New Era. Channel your inner cowboy with a dinner ride, cattle drive or being a 'wrangler for a day'.

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!

Grandview worth the trip

Scenic well laid out golf course requires you to use every club in your bag and to think and hit good golf shots to shoot a good score without penalizing you too harshly for poorly played shots. Holes are spaced so you can see others playing while not interfering with your round of golf. Parking lot had plenty of cars but the pace of play was surprisingly good with minimal waiting (expect to play in less than 3 and a half hours for 18 holes). Fall colors should be spectacular with amazing elevated views on quite a few holes.
Friendly staff, including a beautiful lady in the clubhouse willing to satisfy your every need before and after the round. Worth the drive for the price, playable for all skill levels, and would recommend playing again, I will definitely be back

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.

Great Course/Excellent Value

We love playing this course several times a year! It is always in excellent condition. Elevated tees, gorgeous views and each hole is unique. It presents a challenge for the men and is fair to the ladies.

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

Thoroughbred Golf Course Rothbury, Mi

Great course and friendly staff. Saved a ton of money on GolfNow. For an early season round of golf the greens and fairways were in excellent condition. I will definitely be going back.
