Summer Series: Thoroughbred Golf Club

This summer, we’re going to have a weekly feature story about attractions and events at the Double JJ Resort! We realized there is a lot to the Double JJ resort that you might not know about, and we want to give you the scoop, and possibly some great deals and coupons!  

This week, we are focusing on the Thoroughbred Golf Club, our 4.5 Star course at the Double JJ Resort. The course was designed by Arthur Hills, a renowned architect who believed that the course is stunning and dramatic, but fair and playable for golfers of all abilities. 

The course has 18 holes that sprawl over 240 acres. The course was designed with a strategic layout that is a challenge for golfers of all abilities; but watch out for hole number 2, as it made the list as one of the hardest holes in the state of Michigan.

The course has recently gotten ample attention on the greens and has brand new golf carts. The outdoor restaurant, the Watering Hole, has been restored and is now open to serve golfers food and drinks while they play a round.

Electric Forest Festival at Double JJ Resort

With another Electric Forest Festival behind us, we'd like to take a minute to look back and say THANK YOU to everyone involved.

Those of you who attended the festival: you camped on the rodeo grounds, walked through the original Jack & Jill Ranch, & were dazzled by Sherwood Forest at night.

Those of you who helped put the festival on, from the head honchos in the corporate offices, to the WET members who volunteered hours of their time for a chance to experience the Electric Forest, you helped showcase our unique property in an exciting way to thousands of people who may not have had a chance to visit us otherwise.

We look forward to welcoming all of you back next year, and many years after that to celebrate the Electric Forest Festival at the Double JJ Resort.

Go on a mini-getaway with your loved one, & stay overnight at the Double JJ Resort.

When you book the Romance at the Ranch package, you’ll enjoy overnight accommodations at the Double JJ Resort, & delight in one another's company as you glide through the woods on a private horse-drawn sleigh ride, dine in one of our resort restaurants, & savor the bottle of champagne with souvenir glasses you'll receive upon checking in. What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than spending time with the one you love!

We're Still in Winter Mode!

Even though it's up around 50º out today, we know we're going to dive right back into winter, & we're ready! Our snow tubing hill will be ready for sledders this Friday, and we'll be ready to jump into dog sledding & horse-drawn sleigh rides as soon as we've got enough snow back on the ground!

Bundle up for when you hit the hill at Sundance Slopes! You’ll have a blast sliding down our 660 ft. run, & then catching the tow rope back to the top. Race your friends down the hill, form a chain, & get a running start to really pick up some speed! Make sure you don’t miss the Hot Cocoa Bar in the Warming Hut, where you can get a bottomless cup of Hot Cocoa & then get to customize it in any delicious way you would like!

There’s a couple different factors that determine the speed of snow tubing each day. Check out the chart below to get an idea of what the speed on the hill will be like on the day that you visit. You can check our most updated schedule at the Sundance Slopes Webpage

You may think that traveling by four-wheel drive is the best way to get around in the snow, it’s only because you’ve never traveled by Dog Sled! Our team of eager sled dogs will pull you on a whirl-wind ride around the rolling acres of the snow-covered Thoroughbred Golf Course for a trip you won’t soon forget! If you’re feeling ambitious, you can even sign up for Mushing Lessons to learn how to drive the team of dogs yourself! Check the JJ Journal while you’re here to find out when you can make treats for your favorite sled dog as well!


Looking for a more laid-back or romantic way to enjoy the snowy woods of West Michigan? Bring your family aboard one of our Double JJ Sleighs, pulled by a team of draft horses. You’ll enjoy the quiet sounds of the horses as you glide through the woods, cozied up under some blankets. For a more romantic sleigh ride, book a private vis-a-vis ride for you & that special someone & enjoy the wonders of winter with no interruptions.

As always, we offer horseback trail rides year-round, although the rides may all be restricted to walking speed if the weather conditions mean going any faster would be dangerous for either the horse or rider.

All of our activities at the Double JJ Resort are open to the public, as well as guests who are staying in one of our accommodations. Simply contact the front desk at 1-800-DoubleJJ if you’d like to participate in any of the above activities, as reservations are strongly encouraged!

Happy (Snowy) Trails!
