Colonial Golf Course of Hart

Step onto the grounds at Colonial Golf Course and you instantly know this is no ordinary course. Established in 1999, the gem of Colonial has to be the beautiful and stately clubhouse, which is surrounded by trees and is home to the restaurant and bar. The actual property dates back to 1858 and is now home to a golfer-friendly course designed by Jeff Gourney. Spring, summer, or fall…hitting the links in West Michigan is a great activity, and here at Colonial, you have the winds off Lake Michigan to enhance your golf game.

The Course

This course, where the public is always welcome, offers something for everyone. Warm up on the 12-acre driving range, the best West Michigan has to offer. The 27-hole, 72 par public championship course gives you the best golf experience with its rolling hills and expansive greens. The Colonial takes pride in keeping all 6,900 yards of the course in excellent playing condition. 

Beginners and junior players will find the nine-hole, par 30 Heritage course just right…beautiful greens but nothing intimidating. At 1,600 yards, the Heritage may sound easy, but is challenging for novice and experienced players alike.
