Great course. Used what little elevation was present and a multitude of water in play. A few really stand out holes: 1,2,12,14. Great risk/reward shots throughout the course and a some great par 4/5 holes that are real golf holes not just deuce or die.
With the addition of concrete tees (spring 2013), hole signs, some schule and thorns being removed this course will move up to an A.
Great design Larry, you are the man.

Course looks great! Lots of benches added, concrete tees from both short/long tees. Lookin great, all the course needs now is some good tee signs

A great new course for the area. Not a lot of elevation, and water comes into play on holes 3,7,10,14,16, and 17. Has cement tee pads on all holes. Needs trash cans and signs for the holes. Almost Oshtemo like with longs and shorts, but not as many trees. Come play here!

One of my personal favorites now that all the pads are in its one the best coursed in the kzoo area, lots of technical shots that require power ,longs are very challenging requiring even more power and accuracy great design nice work Larry.

A nice addition to the Kalamazoo lineup. This course brings some water hazards and some nice distance shots from the long tees. Brand new chainstars gleaming throughout the course and fresh concrete teepads for both the long and short tees convey that this course means business. There are courses in Kalamazoo that have been around for years and still don't have concrete; I'm looking at you, Air Zoo. Good replay value due to both sets of tees and a good variety of shots. Some holes seem unnece ...

The course layout is great, they just need to continue with the improvements, message board better markers and grooming the grounds so that they will be restored to a more natural feel, concrete pads were a great improvement.

Always a challenge at Vicksburg Recreation Area (ViRA). Great layout with the best possible usage of terrain. Two practice baskets are a huge plus. Concrete pads on both long and shorts just poured this year. Paths have been beaten by locals and players making course easy to navigate. Signs and this place is complete. Great tournament location for all levels of play. Plays: woods, ponds, lake, and rough(very rough). Each basket is placed with serious perfection. Get out and play this course! 2015 Amateur World Championship location possibly.

Awesome course great mix of different shots, long and short pads. Fairly new so the rough is rough but it will definitely smooth in with time. Nice location ten minutes south of 94.

hard to give a fair rating to a new course, not enough trash cans or signage althouth not hard to figure out the flow except in 1 or 2 spots. looking forward to playing it again when it is finished.

Vicksburg has everything a good course should have: open, woods, water, left, right, over trees, death putts, the list goes on. Course is still improving with pads in 2013. Needs more benches and trash cans. PLAY HERE!!! Well worth the trip :) Great job again Larry!
