I love to see these updates, thanks Dirty. We are pretty lucky here in Michigan. In additon to some of the simply spectacular "up north" courses installed. The local SE Michigan course added have some real quality. Keep us updated man.

That said, teepads and better navigation would go a VERY long way.

Locals pulled up MOST of our "Next Tee -->" signs. Wooden posts, tee signs, pads, good baskets, etc are luxuries I've come not to expect from Fitz. At least with the current layout I want to play there in spite of all that.

Not sure which two holes you're referencing, might be the layout that was before my time (been playing out there ~5yrs). I've never played the island hole either. They're probably not there though.

there was the hill on the side you threw down it. Thats what he's talking about. I've only been playing for 5 years and it was there about 3 years ago? Maybe hole 3 or 4?

It got pulled right before they shot the remake of "Red Dawn", at least I think that's what movie they shot there. Wasn't put back in.

That is garbage. My version of Red Dawn would have baskets.

Grand Isle - Belmont: Update

The following is part of a newsletter that came with my recent water bill from the township:

"At the Grand Isle Park, Visser Brothers Construction will be expanding wetlands and constructing a trail along the river's edge. Construction of a disc golf course will begin this fall. The Parks Department is starting a Disc Golf Club to assist with the construction and management of the course."

I have again been in contact with the Parks Director and he has asked me to gauge interest in local golfers joining the club. If you are local to the Grand Rapids area and have an interest in helping the course and club get started, please send me a PM.

Gotcha, yeah, those are gone. I think it would've been holes 3 and 4 at that time, before that it was 6 and 7. It's getting hard to talk about this course, haha!

They may have pulled the basket for 3 for Red Dawn, but they left 4 in during the shoot and the crew... did something to it. Bent the tray all up. :/

Hole 3 now plays down to the fire pit and you don't shoot down by the river at all now. Those old holes, at least the first cliff shot was cool, but it was also a blind shot down a popular walking trail in a multi-use park. They moved it across the path for a while but now it's pulled.

The course plays deep into the woods now (enter the woods on 7 and come out after 16) with a good variety of holes back there, including one over a berm with a 10-15' deep pit short of the basket that is in bounds. There is a very very subtle battle amongst locals going on now over what to nickname that hole. "the blast hole" "the tiger pit" "dynamite hole" etc. I don't think anyone knows where the pit came from or why it's there. There are also some really spectacular views back there, especially on the (longish) walk from 12 to 13 where you walk along the edge of a steep slope overlooking a deep valley. I'll not be walking that path when it's icy though!
