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'.

Great track and fantastic greens

Challenging layout cut through hilly and wooded terrain. Very tough from blue or gold tees, but white and red are very fair for mid to high handicappers. Should have a GPS or yardage book to navigate your way. Pay careful attention approaching greens as several of them have little hazards that pinch in near them. Played in April before the trees bloomed... must be beautiful in summer and fall.

I have been reading reviews on this course that were not very good. Do not know what they were talking about. It was in great shape! The only thing that needs work are the cart paths.I will play here again.

Great Layout / Fun to Play

Played her about 20 years ago and it has really grown up. Layout is fun and challenging with lots of elevation change and blind shots. Bring lots of balls cuz you don't want to chase into the woods - lots of poison ivy! Condition was good to very good - greens in great shape, fairways were good but a lot of the greens were pretty rough. With some effort from management, this course could be spectacular. Pro shop just average, with staff doing several jobs at the same time. No beverage cart on a Saturday in the middle of summer - at a resort course! What are they thinking. But I would and will go back - especially if I can find another Golf Now Hot Deal!!

A gem....but it's fading...needs a good polishing

The Thoroughbred Golf Club remains a challengin and beautiful course. Many features are not found on a resort course. Unfortunately due to a variety of circumstances..it is not being kept up to the standards originally intended for this great course. Fees remain high..and traffic is very low..not a bad thing when you are playing. .but it does not bode well for this once incredible course.

Thoroughbred Golf

At one time this challenging and scenic golf course was one of best in west Michigan. Unfortunately, the condition of the course has deteriorated over the years. Would to see this course return to its great condition of a few years ago.

Best 1st time ever

Great course! We played it for the first time yesterday (walked 18). Great elevation changes. Severe dog legs. Hole #8 is 108 (from blue) par 3 with an Island green. Hole #11 has water in front of green. I'd recommend this course to all. It's very challenging!

Great layout

Really enjoyed the course layout. Lots of different shots required with doglegs, uphill, downhill, and an island green. Definitely well worth the Golfnow price!

Quite a Challenge

This course is T-O-U-G-H !!! In very nice shape. If you think your a big hitter, play from the Gold on this course!! OMG Some extremely challenging holes with no let-up. Tremendous piece of property that could be amazing with some TLC. The practice range needs lots of attention. Told us the "picker is broken", so we had to drive out on the range and pick up our own practice balls......those balls have been out there a long, long time. No beverage cart was a bummer - on a perfect day. We were basically by ourselves on the course though. Check out the greens before you hit - lots of buried elephants give HUGE undulations.

Fantastic course close to the dunes.

While camping with friends, some of us broke off and decided to play 18 holes. We arrived early, and walked right on the course. The holes were well designed, and took advantage of all the great rolling hills in the area. We enjoyed the game quite a bit.
