Grand Rapids MI ~ Watermark Residences Market Report ~ Jan 2009

The Residences at Watermark are located on Watermark

Golf Course  just south of Cascade Road.   If you don't like golf, 

get defensive when a stray golf ball rolls into your "yard" you probably

 would be better off not buying a home or condo at Watermark.

Of course you would be missing out on the best golf course in

 Grand Rapids (no prejudice  here, just the facts, folks)

Yes, I play Watermark golf course every chance I get.

Watermark is a premier course with a friendly group of players. 

 We have anexcellent grounds staff and a great pro shop staff.

Watermark single family homes and condos make this

 a very attractiveplace to live. Quality built homes with access

off Cascade Road andSpaulding Drive, you are close to the

airport, 28th Street shopping,I96 expressway and close to

Cascade, Ada, and Forest Hillsschools and shopping areas.
