Thoroughbred Golf Club is the centerpiece of the Double JJ Resort in Rothbury. It consistently ranks as one of West Michigan's top courses. The course is as beautiful as it is challenging with a landscape of lush rolling hills blanketed with mature trees. Golfers should be prepared for a variety of elevation changes and tricky uneven lies. Natural marsh areas come into play and there is a combination of conventional and pot bunkers, some with sod walls that make recovery difficult. Trees and mounding border the fairways and the challenging greens features a mix of ridges, tiers, and undulations. The no. 1 handicap hole is the second, which is both dramatically scenic and hard, This tough par 4 can be reached in regulation with a risky shot over the wetlands or it can be played safe to the right on the second shot.
