The facilities and setting for learning

and perfecting a golf game.

It’s hard to imagine an environment more suited to developing a better golf game than Chikaming
Country Club. Our practice and short game areas are among the very finest in southwestern Michigan and our
PGA Professional Staff has several decades of combined teaching expertise that will quickly

get newcomers on the course and help even seasoned golfers take their games to a more competitive level.

A staff that really knows you.

Led by PGA Head Professional Tom McMichael, the golf staff is 
trained to understand the needs of every golfer in the
club. That means you will be greeted personally when you arrive at
the pro shop or bag drop, and that your clubs may be on
a cart before you realize it. It also means whether you need lessons
or new shoes, clubs re-gripped or help with scores and
handicaps, your requests will be met promptly and courteously.

Getting the most out of the golf season.

April through November, there are dozens of programs, events,
tournaments, and trophies for men, women, and juniors
to satisfy the most rabid of golfers. Whether that’s regular weekly
competition or special invitational events, all members
are well informed beforehand and encouraged to become a part of
these programs. Friendships are formed, skills are tested,
and bragging rights encouraged for every age and level of player.

Practice every part of your game.

A secluded practice environment with expansive natural turf
teeing ground and five target greens to test every club
in your bag. A dedicated short game area with generous hitting
areas, two differently-configured greens maintained at
course speeds, and four greenside bunkers with course signature
sand. And, as you approach the beginning of a round,
a large putting complex to feel course speed and touch that day.

Simplifying the complexities of golf.

Along with Head Professional Tom McMichael, PGA Golf Professional Emeritus 
John Phillips is committed to making
the golf experience better for all player levels. Whether in early
season clinics or mid-season private lessons, emphasis
is placed on the characteristics of good ball flight and the simple
fundamentals of posture, grip, alignment, and swing
path necessary to produce this. TPI analysis is also available.
