All of the Kzoo area courses that have been discussed are great courses and all feel a bit different. Meyer Broadway is easily my favorite and Vicksburg would be my 2nd. One feature that hasn't been discussed about Vicksburg tho, is how much water comes into play. 2 holes play directly over a pond and bad shots on numerous holes could be lost in the drink. I still love playing Vicksburg and the water hazards are not at all punishing but if you prefer your DG without water it is something to consider.

Well they both sound good so I'm probably just going to play both Cold Brook and Vicksburg. They're both close enough to my route so why not? I appreciate all the good insight and can't wait to play some great courses in MI. I'm thinking of hitting the Ludington courses next year too! Thanks again everybody.

If you have time - yeah nothing wrong with hitting both. You better post pictures daggumit. And by the way we are having a Am B-tier at Lake Township on 6/1/19 FYI in case you are interested. But if not, have a great time anyways!

Shore Acres will be awesome in June. Expect morning and evening temps to dip into the 50s if you're in early June. The local town has a bunch of nice places to eat and drink at.

Highly advise to take the short hike through the woods to lake Michigan, beautiful sand dunes, while you're at Shore Acres park

Was free to play last time I was there

Being from Chicago’s south side, I highly suggest you play Canyons in Lockport. I regularly make the 50min drive to go play while passing several good courses along the way. You should also consider Highland park and West park in Joliet if time and energy allow (I prefer HP over West, but both are very solid and have several memorable holes apiece).

I agree with an above poster that you should spend time in the Ludington, MI area and play any combo of the Mason County (Beauty, Beast, Goliath) courses or Leviathan. They are all worth a play and you won’t be disappointed with any combo of the 4. Some cool views of Lake Michigan over huge rolling hills from the Mason county trifecta.

As far as the Joliet area. I was planning on the canyons for sure since I missed it last year. Then also West park. That'll be all I'll have time to play before heading. If my arm hasn't fallen off by then after all the other courses.
