Paradise !!

Great staff, great course, feels like Northern Michigan but is only a 30 minute drive from downtown Grand Rapids.

This place is PARADISE for ALL levels of golfer. The tips will beat you up but the whites and blues are fair.

Highly recommend !!

ARE YOU KIDDING? OUTSTANDING

Excellent conditions just to hot. This one of western Michigan's best. The greens are tough and undulating. The course is manicured and service is super friendly. We will always try to play it when we are on that side of the state.

Good track

Great course, clubhouse and staff. They could stand to upgrade their range balls though. The facility sits on a lot of sand and the balls hold that in the morning and even in the afternoon.

Great course conditions, GREAT value

I have played this course about 5 times, and enjoy it more each time. The value you get for your money is amazing. This course is always in AMAZING shape. The fairways immaculate, the greens are firm and fast, and the rough is well maintained. There is a great variety of holes from easy to challenging. Please add this to your list of courses to play in the area.

Starter was Super Rude

Arrived at 9:15 for 10:00 am tee time. Went to driving range to hit balls. 9:35. Starter came up as we were getting out of cart to tell us we were on tee. Rushed us to pair up with another twosome. Didnt let us hit balls to warm up. The two we played with were great. They also were rushed ahead. Totally messed us up. The starter was really rude and not friendly. Get rid of him. Just a ornery old man who acted like he didn’t want to be there. I wont pay $75 to play there ever again. Bad experience.

Very nice course and great value for money

Played for first time (9 handicap). Very nice course, greens are rolling at a good pace. Lots of tee options for people to choose which is great and practice area is great for early round practice. Would definitely play the course again. The rough is long and thick so can be penal if missing lots of fairways. Played the white tees and a good challenge. Definitely more of a second shot and putting course if you want to score well.

Getting old

I wish the course would try to do more about improving the pace of play. I don't expect three hour rounds on a busy Saturday but the five hour 45 minute round we suffered through was ridiculous. Didn't see a.single player assistant until the 17th hole and he was clueless. This is not a once in a while thing anymore. Because of this they have slipped out of my number 1 choice of places to play. It's a shame.

Worth the Trip

Best course I've played all year, especially for the value. Free range balls with the cart, starter to keep things moving, ok pace of play @4:20. Great shape, not tricked up, excellent visual lines to landing areas, tough greens but fair, rough is not too penal....very enjoyable.

Wife Loved the course

My wife is playing more golf these days and so I treated her to a round at Pilgrims Run today. She loved it and is looking forward to playing it again.
We are in our 70s and retired and everything was great. Tees, fairways and greens were in great shape especially considering that there had been almost constant rain in the prior days.

Just a Classy Course

This course is very secluded. Greens and fairways are in excellent condition. Bunkers abound with some of them being very deep. Green fee includes a bucket of balls to use on the range so come early. Best course within 75 miles and definitely worth the drive.

Great course, poor etiquette

Great rate, great layout, good condition (greens a little bumpy). Pace of play was ok, waited on just about every hole, but made it through nine in just over two hours. The main problem was the group behind us was very loud. They pulled up to our tee box on the first hole and continued to have a full volume discussion during all of our drives. This continued through out the round and affected at least eight to ten shots including approach shots when they were so loud from the tee box it was disturbing from 200 yards away. Yeah I let it get in my head. To me the quality of course deserves a better experience. I’m not sure if this is pc anymore, but it seemed a little red neck out there. Northern Michigan has so many great options. I’ll bypass this one next time.
