I am part of the design team though, and I will say this as a disclaimer. The baskets are back in, in the original locations. It is our desire to work with the park to best optimize the new features that the land presents, which is basically a giant hill that used to be a flat fairway on #16. The park is ready to work with us on this. So we plan to move the pin location for 16 at least, and possibly tweak a few other minor things.

My not so humble opinion is that hole #16 at Independence Lake Red Hawk will eventually be known as one of the best holes in disc golf. For those that don't know the history here: Indy Lake Park built a waterpark recently that required a significant amount of digging for a drain field. They needed somewhere to put all of the dirt. Instead of just dumping it somewhere, we worked with them to build up large sculpted hill on #16 that had previously been a flat fairway prone to flooding.

Not many public courses (and not many private ones either) have the opportunity to move that much earth to create terrain features, sounds like a great addition to the course!

I will second the excitement !!!!

Can't wait to get out there and play the full course for the first time in my short DG career. It was already a very fun course before the new 6 holes even had time to mature, can't wait to play these new 4 holes and get the full 24 hole experience.

Great news before the weekend.

I have not. I was talking with a local from over there who was walking the Powdermill course as we were building it, and he seemed pretty interested in getting a better design in place out there. Apparenetly the property has potential and support, just no real vision and experience to execute it all properly.

I do however want to get to Superior Pines in Grand Marais. It looks fun, maybe not stellar, but definitely worth a trip through Pictured Rocks Lakeshore to get there.

As a PSA, the course (smash park) in belding is NOT in. there are no baskets, poles or marked objects in the ground. I only say this because I drove out there yesterday to be befuddled by only little orange flags in the ground. the fairways are roughed in but there are still a ton of tree stumps and debris that needs cleaned before this course could even be close to OPEN.

If anyone ever wants a killer 3x24 hole trifecta: Indy Lake is only about 8-9 miles from Husdon Mills.
