Does this mean you'll make Michigan the third state to sync up the PDGA and DGCR directories?

yes!!!

im extremely pumped that saginaw is finally getting its own course! i was walking through the trails at wickes park about two years ago and wanted a course in there was hoping it would be the first place that would get one! too bad i wasnt involved in the planning or build! maybe i should focus on getting one out in at delta college like i planned two years ago

We've got about three solid courses in the mid-mitten area (Central Mich U) +/- 15 miles or so. Working on proposing one in my home town of alma.

Ira Twp course hits a snag...

Email from Ira Twp Parks Dept.

I am sorry Donny, but we have hit a snag in construction. Holes 3-6 go through the “rough” wooded area and we are unable to remove the Thorn Apple trees that are in the way. We have the holes & support poles cemented in and the baskets are done, but we are having BIG landscaping issues.

Parks & Rec found a volunteer to brush hog a 6’ swatch where the course is to go, but there are still 1-4” small tree daggers sticking out of the ground that pose a trip hazard.

We are looking into finding a volunteer that has some type of industrial rototiller/ground churning equipment that would be willing to come in & churn up the pathway. We could wood chip a 4” layer down, we have a ton of free wood chips, but that will take a lot of man hours.

If we bull doze, we are left with a pile of trees with roots & dirt attached, and that can’t be burnt.

If you have any suggestions, I would gratefully accept them. We are always looking for help, thank you.

Dang, I'm still trying to work on our private course's completion along with finalizing a course proposal for a park down the road. I'll have to check it out but it's still at least 25 min from my house.

Anyone in that area looking for a volunteer opportunity? PM me if interested.

18 of the 24 holes of the belle isle course will be up this sunday only for a fundraiser tournament. The tourney is catered by slows and every entrant receives a tee and free founders beer. There will be a keg of reds ryepa and porter. Show us your support and come on out.
