I never met him, but, I have played most of his well received courses in Michigan:


Elk Ridge (Atlanta, MI)
A-Game-ng -Sundance (Torch Lake,MI)
Hunterís Ridge (Howell, MI)
The Majestic (Hartland, MI)
Hawk Hollow (Lansing, MI)
Timber Ridge (East Lansing, MI)


The only course of his that is a highly rated public course in Michigan that I have not played is Timberstone.  I am not sure about the obit and the courses he did especially the out of state courses as I can think of only 5 to 6 that I know of that are not in Michigan.


His courses were usually good, but not great, used the land well, and he built better greens than his father.

At one time Grand Haven GC was in the top 100 public. Times were different, and tree lined tight courses were highly thought of.

Bruce Matthews, Sr designed Grand Haven. (Now American Dunes) He also designed LE Kaufman, one of the best munis in the state with great conditioning.

I'm assuming you mean the Grand Rapids muni (I'm actually not sure if it's Grand Rapids or Kent County who runs it). I'm hoping to sneak out there someday soon.

LE Kaufman is located in Wyoming/Kent County. Formally called Palmer Park.

OK great, that's the one. As a recent transplant to Grand Rapids I was hoping to make this my next stop, with your recommendation I'll double my effort...
