Vacationing

Had perfect weather to play golf. Got paired up with 2 great guys that knew the course so lucky for us as we would have been lost a few times otherwise.. Fairways were in great shape. This is a short and
pretty flat course but fun to play. Really really fast greens make it a bit tougher to make a good par. We liked the layout and open fairways. Main complaint is their GPS system which stays on your butt every minute so pretty annoying in that regard. However, the carts were the most cushy seats ever. Would play again.

Poor signage on course / food not so good

Getting lost on a course is not fun and most holes and probably caused pace of play issues was lack of signage from hole to hole. Food was horrendous afterward as well. For the price of this course I would not return.

Great course with great rates

This course was in great condition and well maintained. Pace of play was excellent. Wide open fairways. It does require course management skills. Greens were fast but fair. Will definitely come back again

Doesn't get much better!

My cousin and I usually try to play somewhere once a weekend or at least every other weekend and we have wanted to play this course for a while now. Usually difficult to find tee-times the day of for this really nice course. This past weekend we had the opportunity to play Macatawa. What a fun course. Great shape and challenging greens. The first time with some of the blind shots was a little more challenging then I think it will be playing it again now see the cut-outs and things in the course. However, tee to green is not the difficulty. The difficulty here is once you get to the green. Slight, hidden and tricky/slippery breaks on some with massive sweeping drops and elevations on other greens. Whoever said, why have the greens that fast I don't think too into account the amount of elevation changes on the greens. We both thought they rolled well and true to how firm, but receptive they were. We will DEFINITELY be back and hopefully more than a couple times a year!

Can't say enough nice things about this course

Beautiful course with some pretty challenging holes. Greens were suuuuper fast but immaculate. Staff in the Pro Shop were very friendly. No cart girl that day but they had a pretty big event going around the twilight tee time we had.

Fast greens and lots of ball marks

I really don’t think you need to have your greens as fast as they played. That being said, people please fix your ball marks. There were dozens of old marks that would take a long rime to heal if I wasn’t there fixing them.
