Wonderful 1st class golf. Excellent shape and very well marked holes. Be prepared to loose a few balls...and of course find a few (it should even out in the end).

Very nice college golf course that they keep in great shape. The name says it all that it meanders through mostly open areas with a few holes getting into some woods. The tall grass in the rough punishes missed tee shots and begs you to cut corners. Well laid out and it's a tough but fair course. I have done... More

This is a challenging course. It has a lot of high grass lining most fairways. Very easy to loose your balls. The course is well maintained. Greens were spiked in late May but looking pretty good now.

The Meadows at Grand Valley is ANYTHING but flat and unexciting. The course is mostly a links layout and is tough and challenging. It is ranked as one of the better golf courses in the state. The greens are fast and undulating. You need to think about your shot selection in playing this golf course. I have played many golf... More

The Meadows is the best course in West Michigan, in my opinion. It is almost always in great shape, and well maintained. It is a tough course, especially later in the Summer after the Heather is grown. Play it earlier in the Spring if you're looking to shoot a good score.

A links course attached to the Grand Valley State University. Challenging holes with a beautiful, stately club house. Super-helpful staff make sure your visit is pleasant and memorable.

Tough course, but worth the challenge. Our foursome was all single digit handicaps and all of us shot in the 90's. We played the course the day before the DII Men's National Championship and it was windy. Keep up your pace of play or the starter will put you on the clock. Bring extra balls as well!
