Yup, when I was talking with Andrew (who designed the course). He said the multiple tees make for two completely different courses. The short tees are a challenging course in it self with the given pars. The long tees are another story all together!

Wow! That's where people played object Frisbee Golf long before there were basket courses around...

Say it's so! ANOTHER new course 15 minutes from me? Did I warp to the year 2525 or something?
Nope, not year 2525. I got this info from township/city master plans. These courses should be coming soon. Not sure who the designers are, but they are in the works for the near future.

The Battle Creek/Portage/Kalamazoo area is becoming quite the disc golf mecca if I must say.

I currently played every course in Battle Creek and Portage (Except Dexter Lake Church), but none in the Zoo. With these new courses coming I might have a day ahead of me (Robert Morris, Oshtemo, Air Zoo, Knollwood, Leila Arboretum, Ramona Park). No one could play all the courses in that area in one day. Props to the local scene in that area for exploding the awareness all around!

The new Belle Isle course delivers. Everyone should check it out. It's a bit wet right now, but after digging a trench for the water fountain yesterday things should dry up well in a few days. I liked shooting at the targets and I think it offered a different (but equally fun) challenge from the metal baskets.

DirtyMitten: got a new one for ya.

I know this isn't technically MI, but Windsor is pretty much a suburb of Detroit so I'm going to lobby to include it here:

[pending 2013]
Lakewood Park - Tecumseh, ON
18 hole course on a former ball golf course. Many mature old trees and interesting features on a 65 acre site right off of Lake St. Clair. It's been win after win on getting this course green-lit. The town is realizing they have a unique opportunity to bring disc golf to an area that doesn't have anything within a 2 hr. drive. We don't have a definite in-writing YES yet, but all of the signs are very promising so far. Side bonus: 5 min walk from my house.

Sounds cool. But probably won't be added to the list. Maybe if Michiganders could get there without a passport... I've yet to even play a course across the river. WAY to hard to get over there.

I'm sure you already know this but we can get the enhanced license to get over there. I believe its only $45, and at the border I think they put in a fast lane for people who use the enhanced license instead of a passport.

True. But the course still isn't in Michigan...
