The views from Arcadia Bluffs shoreline must be stunning. Have you played that course??

Posted by Bonnie & Terry Westbrook, Grand Rapids MI Real Estate (Westbrook Realty) over 12 years ago

Yes in fact I have played all 5 and they all offer something different. With L E Kaufman so close and because it is a County owned park it is very reasonable to play and a great test for everyone.

Arcadia looks like a course I would love to embarass myself on!

JoEllen: But while you were being embarrassed the view is tremendous.
