Hitting courses near the left coast sounds like a good route for a loop. I have not played a ton of UP courses, but Escanaba is supposed to have a couple, Silver Mountain in St Ignace is a nice round as well. The lower top to bottom could be like this. Hickory Hills, Carly's Playground and Mt McSauba, (new, not listed here yet, but an Epic ski hill course), maybe a drive to Avalanche and Boyne. Drive to Ludington to play Flip, Mason County (three courses) and Leviathan, and then to Kalamazoo for a choice of Cold Brook, Robert Morris, maybe Oshtemo. Meyers Broadway on the way out of Michigan. Apparition has a fine list, but many are a drive off the West Coast. Good luck. Michigan has some of the finest courses on the planet and some great, friendly golfers.

Indy/Rolling are part of the same system, so you might get away with using the same entry. Hudson Mills, however, is not. You could, though, play Hudson, Kensington and Stoney with the same pass.

Victory Park in Albion, MI is a great course.
Cold Brook Park in Climax, MI is another one I would put in my Top 25.

I was less than impressed with Cass Benton myself, would not make my list. Run down course with some obnoxious locals, IMO of course. But a solid listing none the less, thanks for putting this together as there are some I have yet to play so this will help!
I didn't make the list up. I used the Top Ranked courses list for the Top 25 courses in Michigan.

Was only trying to say another course at Rolling Hills would make the $9 fee easier to swallow if, (like Hudson Mills), the fee(s) allowed you to play 2 courses in the same park with no travel. Plus you could, always hit Indy Lake (not too far away) on the same pass.

Never meant to imply hitting Hudson and Rolling Hills with the same park pass - no can do.

Technically speaking, yeah it's possible to hit Hudson, Kensington and Stoney the same day, but not all that that feasible (if you want to play both courses at The Mills), because Stony's really a schlep from the other two. Can't begin to comprehend playing those 102 holes plus all that driving in the same day.

Better yet, wait 'til next June and hit the Toboggan while you're in Kensington. That way, one can make it a nice round number: 120 holes of championship DG... all for the bargain price of $7*

Well shoot, my apologies.

Guess I need to do more Reviews on this site if I want some of my favorite courses to rise up that list.

Awesome! I'm super excited now!

Some open holes to let loose on would be nice. And maybe a hole over water? Looks like they've got a good chance to give it some variety so it doesn't just seem identical to the existing course.

Based on what criteria? Did you exclude the yoop?

Based on DGCR course ratings it would appear, he posted the link in a follow up post. Here it is, just select Michigan as the state and see the results.

http://www.dgcoursereview.com/top_ranked.php

Was kind of surprised myself when I saw the results.

Yeah, I'm sorry but there aren't any courses in the UP in the Top 25 in Michigan according to DGCR.
