GOLF DIGEST FOUR & 1/2 STARS
"The COURSE CONDITION is the BEST I've seen here in FIVE YEARS" quoting a Chicago visitor in late May (2013). "Your fairways roll like the greens, where'd all the water go?"
"Downstream, where it belongs" we replied. Clearbrook is back. Come see for yourself.
Like a vintage Margaux, Clearbrook is improving with age. Rounder, smoother, fuller …mature, elegant & full-bodied! In its 80+ years (founded in 1926) it's undergone countless updates that have touched literally every hole, with the most sizable improvements noted below. The traditional close-cut, narrow fairways and smooth, fast, smaller greens are styled after America's original classic resort courses, and still make Clearbrook the challenge and joy to play that it is. At a ripe-old age, what was once traditional ... has now become classic!
After the 2010 reconstruction of the #11 and #12 Green complexes, the 2011 remodel of the 2nd and 3rd fairways gave them an entirely NEW feel and look. AND they're both DRY! This season, 2013, the dredging of the creek bottom and irrigation ponds is underway, allowing thorough drainage of valley fairways and landing areas. Along with new, sustainable fairway turf on 6 fairways .... confidence in this classic course is stronger than ever. The results have been overwhelming, and so has the response.
Judge for yourself why "GOLF DIGEST Places to Play" gave Clearbrook FOUR & 1/2 STARS in 2012, and a superior VALUE rating. The rates are reasonable (some say quite low!) and conditions are great. Come see what these "crazy" owners did these past few years by caring, spending money, and improving this classic West Michigan golf course.

Only 35 miles from downtown Grand Rapids and 10 minutes from Holland, Clearbrook has been a qualifying site for the Michigan Open and has hosted some of the areas finest players and tournaments - such as the West Michigan PGA Championship. And it is regularly chosen as the site of many fine charity events.
This mature par-72 course has expanded to 6556 yards (plenty long for all but the very strongest and most accomplished players!) and a 131 slope. A fine assortment of intriguing holes test every club in your bag. You drive down tight pine and hardwood lined fairways that end at smaller, well-bunkered target greens that putt beautifully. All sorts of water, especially the meandering "clear brook" challenge you. And, its hillsides and hazards make choosing the right stick a huge factor in your score. The par five 5th hole, reachable in two (at 491 yards), is rated in "West Michigan's Top 18" by Grand Rapids Magazine, and crosses two (2) creeks before the large, two tiered green. It's a classic risk-reward hole that makes you think twice before going for it!
You'll also enjoy amenities including driving range, 2 putting greens, a chipping green, a practice bunker, beautifully updated restroom facilities, and a renowned restaurant and bar.
