Indian Trails Intro
Indian Trails Golf Course
2776 Kalamazoo Ave SE
Grand Rapids, MI
Indian Trails is the most incongruously placed golf course on this side of the state. Built in the 1920s in what was then the outskirts of Grand Rapids, this sanctuary is now beseiged by the roar of 28th Street traffic and the burly neighbors of Meijer, the CRC headquarters, and now Walgreens and condos (on its former driving range). The fairways closest to the roads are ruined by the whooshing of traffic, but the inner holes are surprisingly removed from the din, thanks to the course's copious trees. The course is short and straight, but the trees and sloping fairways throw average golfers a few more twists than the average muny. If your short game isn't firing, your score will add up.
I played the back nine on 8/25 and the front on 8/29.
