Ludington Info

I am making our annual road trip to play flip and the mason county courses in mid october and was curious what are some great places to eat/drink/ hang in the evenings. We are from well over 10 hours away and could use any and all suggestions.

I noticed an Irish Pub there---Sportsmans Pub I think---is this place any good? Any local can't miss treasures? Brewery's? etc...

Thanks!

In this thread, tomjulio says this:

PS...when in Ludington, make sure you do two stops:
1. The Wesco gas station on Ludington Ave near Leviathan for their smiley face cookies.
2. The Frontier Store on old US31 before you turn to Beauty/Beast for the best micro brew selection within 50 miles of the course.


and

Small awesome brewery in Ludington called James Street Brewery. Mighty fine beer.
In Holland along the way, there is the New Holland Brewery.
..and yes, Founders and Bells to the south.
(drooling as I type this)

Sportsmans used to be the place, not so much anymore.

My personal faves:

Bars
1. James Street Station
2. James Street Brewery (can't miss for local micros)
3. Gasoline Alley (hole in the wall Nascar bar...cheap beer!)
4. Micheals on the weekends

Food
1. Chuckwagon Pizza
2. Brown Bear (in Shelby)
3. Blue Moon Cafe
4. Lucianos

Missouri bro,
We made the same trip last June. Between Flip and Flip we made some wrong turns going to lunch and found this great small town place in New Era, about 15 min from Flip. I think it was called Trail Side? It's a small place on the right side of the road, when you roll in from the north. Awesome food, friendly people. (Unlike people from MO they know about disk golf). Anyway, if it's still in season the fried asparagus was something you should try.

PS (I'm from St. Louis)
That new course in Rolla is so sick. I was passing through last week and OMG. Once they finish it will be a destination.

Flip City... Beauty and the Beast... Leviatan...

Jamesport Brewing Co. The ONLY place to eat and drink in Ludington.

Best beer selection around by FAR is at Pere Marquette Expeditions - weird name but it's a party store basically. They also carry discs. Also don't miss the homemade granola there it's awesome.

1649 South Pere Marquette Highway
Ludington, MI 49431-9323
http://www.pmexpeditions.com/

Make sure you hit the City beach in Ludington. About 100 ft of sand and beautiful Lake Michigan. That is a can't miss for sure.. Although in October may be colder...

I will second the Brown Bear in Shelby for Food. That place has awesome food and really nice people. My family always eats there multiple times on our trips to Flip.

Thanks for the info guys. We are all pretty stoked about heading up there. I wish we had a week to spend up there. Basically we have 2 full days to play and 1 morning. I am hoping to hit Flip, Leviathan, and the three Mason Cty courses.

Discoholic--What part of StL are you from, I grew up in Hazelwood. Lions Club in Rolla put in concrete tees last week and they have done a ton of work. I think you will be even more impressed next time you come up.
