Have not played this course in over 4 years. Sad to say this great resort golf course is suffering a lack of business, and attention to basics. While the course remains a very challenging 18 holes..way up there on the difficulty level, it is not being kept up to the level it deserves. Several weed grasses have spread over the... More

Thoroughbred is a great golf course laid out in the natural contours and beauty of the natural landscape. Lots of elevation change. Holes and fairways are surrounded by trees making each fairway invisible from others. The course needs some additional investment in maintenance but it is improving each season under new ownership.

The Thoroughbred golf course is a secluded course tucked in back in the thick of Michigan's beautiful back country. Just off of water road in Rothbury, it's a very nice place to experience the rolling hills and beautiful woodland. The fairways are nice grass and open. It can prove challenging due to trees and the winding hills but very pretty... More

The room is very nice. Very very thin pillows so defiantly bring your own. It has a nice kitchen and has everything you need to get by with easy dinners. The hot tub in the bedroom was very nice.

Founded years ago as the J & J Resort, the Double JJ has evolved into a 4-season, full service resort. Changes in ownership over the years has created some skepticism by the locals, however our visit to the main restaurant in December proved they are back on track. Many opportunities for fun are available throughout the year from golfing and... More

Mixed couples group. The course was in good shape. Pretty challenging with varying difficulty. The four of us had fun. The staff was friendly. I should have gotten the bartenders name, he was very pleasant. The pro-shop staff was also accommodating.

You will lose your ball in the fairway and first cut next to the green, Green #3 looks like cobble stone because of all the dead spots. Compared to what the course looked like the first few years it was opened it is 3erd rate today

The bed in the small bedroom was too hard. Other than that, we had a great time and appreciated the well-stocked kitchen.

We did a family getaway for 4 adults a preschooler and toddler. Our suite had two nice sized bedrooms, full kitchen, and living room with a fireplace, tv's in each room as well as a full bath attached to each. There was minimal noise even though it seemed like a heard of girlscouts was overhead. It was neat and clean,... More

This course is beautiful and challenging. If you are a spouse of a golfer you can ride along and enjoy the scenery and/or get some great pictures.
