Pines Intro

The Pines Golf Course
5050 Byron Center Avenue SW
Wyoming, MI 49509
18 holes, 5542 yards
Scorecard/Map Review

The only thing this golf course lacks is length. The fairways are well-maintained, the greens are fast, the landing areas are precise, and the trees are often a factor. But there's only room for 5500 yards of playing length. That's plenty to test my shaky game, of course. 9/15

The area is lucky to still have this course; a report in the Grand Rapids Press this summer quoted the co-owner as saying, "I'm getting one or two calls a week from developers. Does it make sense for us to keep it as a golf course? No." He said he was committed to keeping the course from going condo, but The Pines' days are probably numbered.

Hole 8: With a soft 9-iron I land just above the bunkers in the front and have a long birdie putt. I end up within 10 feet and drain the putt for a par 3.
