I believe Matthew Fortney has a pro shop in that area. I would look him up and send him a pm.

Leonard Bullock owns a place called Team Strike Zone out at Lincoln Lanes. 616-402-6406

He used to run a shop out in Muskegon and then moved his operation to Lincoln. 

Very nice guy, very knowledgeable and really likes to work with you to get things right.  And he certainly has a following as all of his clientele from Muskegon regularly make the trip out to shop.

Chad Reiffer out at Mike Marks Pro Shop (616) 530-2050 in Spectrum Lanes is pretty good to work with as well.  Nice guy who is always willing to talk and provide tips.  And a pretty good bowler as well.  Just won the Muskegon Masters about 2 weeks ago.

My shop is in Holland. About 20-25 minutes toward the lake shore. Your best bet for a PSO out in that area is just to stop by and talk to them. Generally, you'll get an idea of whether or not you'd like to do business with them pretty quickly. There's a lot of very knowledgeable guys out that way.

And of course, you're welcome to stop by my shop inside Bam! anytime. Yes, it's called BAM! now. I don't like it either lol. I'm open Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.  I'm there Tuesdays and Fridays bowling so anytime you stop in I'll be around. Best of luck to you!

Matt

Wow. Never realized there were so many peeps from Grand Rapids on here. Now I wonder if I have bowled against any of you. 

But to stay on topic. My vote goes with Mike Marks in Spectrum Lanes. I have had many balls drilled by Chad Reiffer. Going on a recomendation from him around Christmas I had a Forza drilled up. Fit is perfect and with the layout he recomended this has became my favorite ball.

Agree. Mike Marks typically has top notch guys in their shops.
