LE Kaufman is on Sugarland Social Club's Hidden Gems list, if you're into that sort of thing.

TFE has a nice write up for a GR trip.    https://thefriedegg.com/eggsplorations-grand-rapids-affordable-golf-trip/

This.   Kaufman is fantastic.

Pilgrims Run for sure.  Tullymore and Eagle Eye are also nice, but both are about an hour drive from Grand Rapids.

Pilgrim's Run

Thornapple Pointe

Kaufman

Meadows at GVSU

 

All three are very good choices.  They're all also in different directions from downtown.

 

Diamond Springs

I've never played Cedar Chase but have heard some good things about it

 

There are other courses further out, but depending on where you are staying they may be more of a drive than you want.

Diamond Springs is one of the best public courses I've ever played. Not sure there are more than a handful of better $40 golf courses in the country. I loved Mines and Pilgrim's Run as well, but DS is #1 for me in that area.

 

A little west of GR, The Grand Valley State course would be worth a look. I didn't play it while I was in the area but it looked solid when I stopped by.

I took a cart when I played Pilgrim's Run because the guys I was playing with were carting it and it was on-and-off with rain, but I recall feeling as though it would be a pleasant walk. The only lengthy walk betwen holes is about 350 yards from the 8th green to the 9th tee, but it's pretty flat and pleasant forest scenery. I'd gladly walk it next time I play it.

You have to play American Dunes GC in Grand Haven.  This is a 40 min drive from GR and looks to be a candidate for Top New Course in the USA.  Designed by Jack Nicklaus & Dan Rooney of Folds of Honor fame.

1. Stotin Brae (1hr) from GR 

2. Diamond Springs (35mins)

3. Pilgrims Run (30mins)

4. The Mines

5. Thorneapple Pointe

6. L.E. Kaufman

7. The Meadows 

 

In that order is the way to go ... all really fun tracks but like said before nothing that will just blow your doors off except maybe the first two if you are into that kind of heathland f&f kind of thing

I think I'm in the minority with the opinion that Diamond Springs is overrated and an easy pass. It's on the way to nowhere and not worth the effort to get there. The routing is gimmicky in the effort to get you to the last two or three holes, which I admit are good holes and the highlight of the round. My feelings about the course probably aren't helped by the fact that it was a thousand degrees out the day I played it.

Pilgrims Run is by far the best option....not even close.....dont miss that one.  I have played all over the country and Pigrims Run is an AMAZING track

I'm back from Michigan!

 

We ended up playing Egypt Valley CC, Tullymore, and Pilgrim's Run. Unfortunately, we were only able to get 14 in at Egypt because men's league took over the place. Tullymore was nice - pretty darn tough. Pilgrim's was my favorite of the 3. Such a beautiful place and you were hidden from everyone else on almost every hole as they wound through all the trees. Tons of fun.

Unfortunately my golf game was pretty off almost the entire trip, but I was able to grind out an 83 the last day at Pilgrim's with a triple and 2 doubles. It might have had something to do with the fact that it was 90 degrees every single day! So hot.

Michigan is pretty great. I can't wait to explore more courses around that state.
