Double R Ranch Resort & Golf Club
By Art McCafferty


Double R Ranch Resort & Golf Club, located in Smyrna, has added a nine-hole golf course to its amenities. Long known for its canoeing, tubing, fishing, horseback riding, camping facilities and swimming pools, the resort also had one of Michigan's noted golf architects, Warner Bowen, create Ironhorse. The second nine is laid out and will be developed as the demand increases. Ironhorse is a 3,365-yard rolling championship golf course. Like all new courses, it has to grow into its new surroundings. However, the course is very affordable, so you will certainly get some great golf value.

According to owner, Richard Reeves, Double R is a facility for the entire family. You can bring your travel trailer, motor home, or tent for your stay. The facilities at Double R Ranch make western camping a real pleasure. Campsites have water, electric, and some sewer connections. Each campsite has a picnic table and a fire ring. There are two modern showers and toilet buildings located conveniently in the park. A coin-operated laundry is also available. Guests staying overnight sleep in the Bunkhouse Motel where "roughing it" is a real pleasure. There are A-frame chalets available for those that want to take a week's vacation or longer. Each cottage is completely modern with electric stove, refrigerator and all dishes.

For those who enjoy the western way of life and the convenience of a modern golf course, you can buy one of the many lots on the golf course. The Ironhorse Golf Course Estates has lots priced from $26,900 to $48,900. A number have already been sold.

While there is much to do on the ranch, families can also visit the attractions in nearby Grand Rapids, such as Frederik Meijer Gardens, The Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum, Old Kent Park, John Ball Park Zoo or the Grand Rapids Art Museum.
