    Incredibly rude staff. I went with someone who hadn't golfed in a long time, and was giving a few quick pointers before teeing off on the first hole. Mind you that we had waited for 5 minutes for the person in front of us to play long enough so we could go, but there was nobody waiting behind us at the time. Immediately Lance came running down chiding us saying we needed to speed it up. We had been playing for less than 10 minutes and had already teed off the 2nd when Lance sent someone up to tell us again we needed to speed it up. Again, there was nobody immediately behind us. At that point, it ruined what we had hoped would be an enjoyable time playing golf for the first time in a long while. Aside from that, the golf course itself was in a nice condition. But the behavior of the staff was inexcusable.

    Indian Trails is a classic design built in 1928. A rather short course, Indian Trails is a wonderful walking course. The fairways are somewhat narrow but very well maintained, and the greens are small, undulating, generally in excellent shape, and quite fast! The friendly staff does an excellent job both in golf course maintenance and golf shop operations. Having read one of the reviews above, I must say I disagree with much of the reviewer's negative assessment of Indian Trails. I've played the game for over 55 years and have worked in the business in various capacities for over 30 years. I'm a decent player, playing to a single digit handicap most of my adult life, and continuing to do so at 67 years of age. I've played a great variety of courses from poorly designed and inexpensive ones, though not often, to very exclusive ones. I've mostly worked at very good golf courses, both public and private. I truly enjoy playing at Indian Trails. Golf has become, thankfully, a game for the masses and while I wish better golf etiquette was practiced by many of the players at Indian Trails, I feel this golf facility does a fine job of giving everyone who wants to play golf the opportunity to participate in this great game. I'm glad the City of Grand Rapids continues to provide and support this excellent recreational facility.

    A very old design made to walk. Greens have been in terrific shape. Great golf for the price.

    This course is owned and operated by the city of Grand Rapids. If there's one thing no government in the world can do, it's compete with the business world.
    The amazingly short course has a lack of tee selections, and very low greens fees mean a lot of non-golfers play here. Etiquette is a foreign word, and the course condition varies wildly from one hole to the next.
    An okay course for a beginner or someone who doesn't golf very much, and wouldn't mind the constant disregard for proper golf etiquette.
