Mis-leading Pricing on website

Your website said $15/ ea. w/cart...well , he charged us $20 for a course that was so water-logged , he should of at LEAST matched the online pricing on your website....hit a few in dead-center of fairway , but grass was about 2" long and SOAKED....ruff was about 5-6"...not sure why you folks over-charge customers , as we WON'T be back...very unfortunate for you......

Mis-leading Pricing

Online it said $15/per golfer , but when we got there he charged us $20/ea. for fairways that were 2" long and ruff was about 5"....course was soaked to the bone....lost balls in dead center of fairway due to conditions....could have at least matched the online price on your website
NEVER again !

Rude staff and little golf etiquette

Really doesn't matter due to courses last year. Golf shop/bar tender check in person was Rude. 2different extremely slow groups wouldn't let us pass . Maintance staff basically followed us with mowers and etc. A few greens rough shape, won't be go back again even with deal on price due to unpleasant experience. Will say First 9 was ok minus greens conditions on couple holes but back 9 only played 7 holes due to slow groups so got tired of waiting so skipped around forfeiting holes.

Kid Friendly

Great staff! Very friendly. Didn’t mind if our kids (7 & 4) tagged along. Just asked we get another cart - which we were planning on anyway. Greens are a little ruff but we got a great price so we didn’t care. Overall we had a awesome family day of golf.

Quality

Went after a day that it rained hard, so it was wet, but greens still rolled well and course was mostly in good condition. Course has great length and layout for a “cheaper” course in Grand Rapids. Would highly recommend for the price.

Tough layout

First time playing here and we were surprised how long the course played from the whites. Course was wet, so no roll and muddy areas made it tougher. Greens were in good shape and a nice speed. Sad to hear that the place will close next year. Better get out and try it out this season!!

SOGGY

Other than it being very soggy, we had no problems with this course. It had rained here quite a bit the past week, so it was cart path only. Standing water just about every where on the course. The fairways on the front nine were not cut, so once the ball landed, that's where it stayed. Lost a few balls in the mud. The back nine was a little better. Very long par 5's! WIll go back, and would recommend for the price!

Long challenge but needs work

It can be a long challenge from the tips but really needs some tlc. Tee boxes need grass. rough is a little long. Greens are mostly flat but have many dead or rot spots on them. The layout itself is fairly simple just a few almost tricked holes. Need a map or take a drive to find landing areas. Doglegs are short off the tee and longer second shots in.
