The beauty of Kaufman Golf Course is almost humorous because it’s hard to imagine what lies inside just off Clyde Park Avenue in Wyoming. The road setting is an industrial park. Really. Through the entrance is another story – a county-owned municipal course with a four-star rating (Golf Digest) that’s one of the oldest (1965) and one of the hidden gems of West Michigan (about 34,000 rounds between April and October).
With the highly-regarded Kent County Amateur Golf Tournament headed there next week (July 15-16), it’s a good time to look at each of the holes and see what makes it still so challenging.
