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'.

One of the BEST courses in the area!

GREAT COURSE. Fun. Beautiful views!!! Come ready to play. Very difficult if you play the blue or gold tees. Double JJ Ranch is a wonderful play for the entire family! Things to do for everyone.

Grand View is what you get

The course is a great challenge for an advanced golfer. Many holes will require a shaped tee shot and a good approach. For the average duffer, the course may be a little difficult. But this is offset by the course conditions in the view you get during the play. The price without GolfNow seems fair, but using GolfNow made a great deal.

Great course, better value

We played 36 holes on a Saturday morning and found the course to be in great shape, very challenging, and the staff could not have been friendlier. Our only wish was that there was a beverage cart out on the course. Other than that, it is a great course for a great price. I highly recommend making the trip!

Beautiful course

This course has some of the best views as you rome your way through the hills. Large greens that roll true and very well kept course throughout the entire property (not just tee to green) make this one of my favorite courses in west michigan.

Very well groomed & foliage simply wonderful!

This place is a Jewel, everything was perfect- I actually played 6 strokes better than usual, I would attribute that to fast & well maintained greens!

Grand View

We found the course to be in great shape. The fairways and greens were well cared for. While it wasn't a very difficult course, slope for women was 110, it offered enough of a challenge for a good game of golf. The clubhouse only offered soft drinks. Also, they had no water or cart service available on the course so bring your own if you think you may get thirsty.

Tough Track

Tight, hilly, long, and blind shots. Have played this course for years but not lately. Excellent playing conditions. Bring golf balls. Not much play in the middle of the week. Had the place to ourselves. Nice.

Beautiful Challenging Course

Played mid-day on a weekday, so not crowded. Condition was great but frequent rain this year may account for top condition. First time playing this course so it was difficult to know where to hit the balls as some of the greens were not visible from the landing zone off the tee. Fast greens with some contour. Most rough was tall grass so finding balls was nearly impossible. Looking forward to playing again.

Very well maintained

Really enjoyed playing this course. It was very well maintained. Got a great price on playing it. It is a course where you need to stay in the fairway, as it is a bit tight. Will play it again when I return to Michigan next year.

Beautiful course - well maintained - worth the drive if you just enjoy golf. Don't expect a fancy clubhouse but the staff is friendly.

Grand View = Grand Value

I've played this course 3-4 times now and it continues to impress me with it's overall value. The course doesn't look like much from the road and, indeed, it does not have the design strength of its more famous neighbor, Thoroughbred GC, just down the road. But, for the money, this is a terrific little track. It's not long, and you can spray it a bit, but there's enough trouble lurking in the right places. The views are terrific and the variety of the holes is nice.

Grand View at its best

Grandview is a great course to play. A great value compared to the resort close by. I am a average golf and find it challenging. My wife, a non-golfer, rode along and enjoyed the beautiful views. High on my list of the great golf courses in the area.

This course is in great condition.

Beautiful course with rolling hills and wonderful views. Challenging course that is in great condition. Well worth the full price but if you can get a discount you might as well be stealing! Definitely one of the best public courses you will ever play.

Great Course

First time playing and was somewhat challenging due to not knowing the layout. Not a lot of level lies and some blind shots, but overall would definitely recommend playing. However, do bring a couple extra sleeves of balls just in case.
