Charmed by vibrant flowerbeds and intermittent waterways, Centennial Country Club's 18-hole course connects across 5,731 yards of well-maintained fairways and greens. A relatively short layout, the par 70 places accurate shots at a premium with curving fairways, water hazards that leave small landing zones, and tall grasses that will attempt to raise errant balls as their own. Head PGA pro Bill Ballew treats the course as his verdant classroom, helping golfers improve their swing with lessons and junior clinics.
Those who favor the racket over the club can take advantage of Centennial Country Club's tennis programs, which keep the baselines of two outdoor tennis courts busy throughout the summer. Guests can find respite from the summer swelter at the outdoor pool surrounded by ample space for sunbathing. After a long day spent by the pool, on the course, or entangled in a tennis net, guests can replenish at Bobby J's Bar, a casual lounge and restaurant that serves cocktails, beer, wine, and a menu of savory smokehouse fare.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 70 course * Length of 5,731 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 68.7 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 137 from the farthest tees * Four tee options
The Green Derby has been open for more than 65 years. What's the secret to its longevity? It might be that the kitchen prefers to get hands-on with the food?the chefs hand-skin their famous fried halibut, hand-make their Angus beef patties, and produce items from meatloaf to salad dressing in-house. The result is a menu of classic meals that never go out of style. Entrees include grilled pork chops, seafood platters, and Southern fried chicken, often served with old-school sides such as green beans and stewed tomatoes. The ever-popular lunch specials include fried grouper sandwiches and teriyaki chicken wraps, and customers are also wowed by seafood specialties like the baked stuffed grouper and the pasta del mare. The game changes on Sundays, when the restaurant serves up golden waffles and homemade goetta for breakfast.
At Brandywine's casual eateries, an appealing explosion of framed photos and artwork greets guests as they sit down to their morning breakfast or unwind over a leisurely dinner. Chefs warm up the kitchen in the a.m. by cracking dozens of eggs into veggie-stuffed omelets, eggs benedict, and hearty breakfast burritos stuffed with black beans, fresh cheese, and chorizo. During lunch, patrons can pop in for sandwiches and wraps, including a corned-beef reuben or the Northender wrap?a collection of deli-sliced beef with grilled mushrooms, horseradish mayo, and peppers. For dinner, Brandywine's chefs show off their multicultural influence in dishes that blend Caribbean, Asian, or Greek flavors, including the chili-rubbed Norwegian salmon or fettuccine tossed with saut?ed capers, artichokes, and black olives.
Jersey-style subs may be Boardwalk Subs’ food forte, but the staff’s true specialty is its attention to customer service, as showcased by its nomination for the Grand Rapids Celebrated Service award. In between friendly smiles and polite conversations, the kitchen crew at the family owned eatery focuses its attention on handcrafting 25 types of toasted or grilled subs and pairing them with fresh-baked cookies and warm soups. After baking fresh bread each day, cooks slice open each 15-inch roll before stuffing it with savory meats, such as salami, capicola, and roast beef, and seven kinds of colorful vegetables. The sandwich artists then top the savory layers with one of 12 sauces and seasonings such as celery salt and italian spices.

Rak Thai's clean, modern dining room streamlines dining aesthetics with burnished wooden tables and minimalist accents, vibrant lime-green walls, and a potted bamboo sentry to prevent noodles escapes.
