For over 70 years, the Double JJ Ranch & Golf Resort has been “America’s Friendliest.” A year-round full-service ranch resort, it offers horseback riding, championship golf, swimming pools, three private lakes, conference center, restaurants, and so much more!

There’s plenty to do in the winter, too, including snow tubing, sleigh rides, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing. All of this is found in a resort located on over 1,000 pristine wooded acres in beautiful West Michigan…

Our staff come from all over the United states and many from around the world. We are committed to creating an atmosphere that encourages lifelong friendships among guests and staff.
