Detailed description of Kent Country Club

Kent Country Club is a Private 18 hole golf course located in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Kent Country Club was founded 1n 1896. Edward Lowe and J.C. Holt formed the original nine-hole Grand Rapids Golf Club in an open field at the corner of Wealthy Street and Plymouth Avenue in East Grand Rapids. The first golf club in West Michigan had modest beginnings, but as the game of golf steadily grew in popularity, so did the club's membership. Outgrowing its original site, the golf club moved to its current location at the turn of the 20th century where a new course was built and over the years this new golf course was expanded and renovated.

The present day Kent Country Club golf course was most notably the work of a redesign layout in the 1920s by Donald J. Ross.
