Yes, I know. Just wanted to help out on how to play a course in a different country.

Yes, Yes it shall be so.

The North Course is marked and flagged. 100% wooded, traversing through a wooded ridge along the entire north section of the property. Blue and Red skill level tees, alternate pin placements in the future, and road OB on some holes. Pretty tight but generally better than 20% width to length ratio for most holes.

The South Course is designed but not yet marked. Includes a few 500'+ holes in a park like setting under huge white pines and mowed grass, a bunch more woods like the North course, a manmade pond (only 200-250' carry or so), river OB, and a throw across the river to three holes on an island! Again predominantly wooded, but less ridge terrain.

Props to the local scene in that area for exploding the awareness all around!
I have played Dexter Lake Church a couple of times on my way to other courses, nothing much exciting about it. Very open course, somewhat short holes all laid out on the big church property. Good little warm up course on your way to another course in the area.

Nice to hear about the BC/Portage/Kzoo area turning into a DG haven. Haven't been over there too much other than to play Cold Brook and hit up Bell's Brewery. Looks like I may need to plan a trip there myself sometime.

Please give credit due to all the other people that had as much to do with designing the course.. Tom, Andy, Matt, Ben, Zack, Scott, Chris, Brian, Snake, Josh most importantly and i'm pretty sure there might be some others i'll leave unmentioned.

Also thanks to the people that put in work on the days to clean up that complete mess.

Trench made a huge improvement with that broken pipe.

oh man, 18 at rotary? thats a busy park. i wonder where its going to go in.
looking forward to farmington courses and sterling heights too!

i figure this would be the best place to ask, could someone pass information to the northville guys? they are going to make a park and a strip mall at the corner of 7 and haggerty , plus the old hospital further west. any chance for another course there?

i know its close to cass, but cass is busy as hell, it needs a sister course!

Pretty much never going to happen. You can find all the site plans online. The construction has already gone scorched earth on a large chunk of the available land. That entire piece of property will be one massive development with a u of m medical center going in first. Followed by several big box stores and crappy chain restaurants. Repeat until all the trees are gone.

Just what Haggerty needs... A massive development poop stain smeared across the landscape. Thankfully I have no need to travel east of 2-75.

I hope that --Grand Isle-- Belmont {18 Holes} is good. It's like a 2 minute car ride from my house.

it looked like a battlefield when i went by it the other day. creepy fog and the forest was GONE. i heard they were making a 'park' tho.

how many more big box stores are left to stick there? northwest is novi mall. or north on M5 has all those other big box stores. south of there is laurel park mall. not to mention the stores on haggerty from 6-8mile.

i guess they need more cell phone stores? heh.
they blame the internet for the killing of retail stores? i seriously doubt the internet forced them to open stores next to each other. i doubt the internet forced them to build brand new stores instead of reusing empty stores. i doubt the internet forced walmart to build two stores 5 miles apart from each other.

sorry for the rant, but damn. support your local non-chain business guys. dont shop at walmart.
