West Michigan Golf ~ Spring Lake Country Club Golf Course

There are so many golf courses in Michigan, over 900 public courses,

ranking third in the nation in public golf courses and over 400 member

clubs to play.  We are crazy about golf in Michigan.

With courses like Spring Lake Country Club, it is easy to see why. 

 Spring Lake Country Club is an old course, founded in 1911, and it is a

private, member owned facility.  From the longest tees, it is 6525 yards.

 

"Going green" is taken seriously at Spring Lake CC.  In May of 2005,

they received the honor of being named a Certified Audubon Cooperative

Sanctuary, only the 14th course in Michigan to be recognized.  In 2007,

SLCC was named #1 for total number of bird species counted on the course

in the Great Lakes region and 3rd in the entire country for the Audubon

International North American Bird Watch Open, held in May each year.

 

Spring Lake CC is seriously into Junior Golf.  Don't be surprised to

see a few future PGA professionals hail from this course.  Last year

they had 180 Junior PGA Golfers (aged 7-17) in their Annual Junior

 Golf Tournament held in August.

 

We were invited to play this fabulous course last week by our friends,

Charles and Joann.  We had a beautiful day to play golf and enjoy the

aesthetics of this picturesque golf course.   Spring Lake CC is heavily

wooded, and indeed,  we saw several oak trees with trunk girths of

15-20 feet or more. 

75-80 degrees, sunny and a slight breeze off the Lake (Spring Lake is

open to Lake Michigan) is a perfect Michigan summer day.  And we

couldn't think of a better way to spend it.  Because Spring Lake is

connected to Lake Michigan, it is a prime resort area and has many

elite homes on the lake.

We are sharing our photo montage of Spring Lake Country Club.
