Traveling on I-94 through this area and found this 18 hole Public course designed by Kalamazoo's city engineer and built in the 1930's. Located just off the highway makes for easy access while traveling in this area. With five (5) tee boxes you can play from 6,711yds / 73.1 down to 4,038yds / 64.7 on this Par 37/35 layout. I only had time to play the Front 9 from the 3,366yd Blues/Tips being a Par 37......but that was ok. Starting #1 490yd dogleg right Par 5 and #2 405yd dog right, got things warmed up quickly. Scattered trees frame the narrow mowed fairways with good positioned sand traps, add problems for errant shots. The rough was thick and sticky in the first 6'-10' off the fairway and played tough. The gentle rolling layout offered a nice breakup in the mostly slight dogleg hole layouts. Medium sized/shaped greens were well protected by sand traps on both sized and putted fast (9) and true. Finishing holes were reverse of #1 & #2 being #8 423yd Par 4 and #9 480yd Par 5 and played tough. With the great selection of yardage's, one can make it suit anyones game or challenge. Enjoyed the 1hr 45minute riding $18 round and shooting 40 w/16 putts on this well manicured course. Will stop back in to play 18 w/cart for $32 in the future and you should too.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
