Thank you, Earic02 and everyone else who participated...He got his votes! Now he's onto the next phase of the project, which I believe is his proposal making it to the suits' desks.

If you haven't made it to Wild Haven near Manton yet, it's his course. He'd be delighted to have you there...It's a private course (and listed on this website), but you can just show up and slip a few bucks in the pay tube.

So, the gig is, he is looking for a quarter million dollar grant for Chase to install P2P private courses? Up north only or is he looking at a larger region?

After going back a couple of months of posts, there did not appear to be any mention of a possible new course going in northeast GR, Northview district I believe, in some sort of sports complex. Anyone else hear about this?

Cool. Thanks for the info. Maybe it will be Macatawa-ish?
Regardless, it should be better than my closest DG choice now - Riverside. My next option is Johnson - love the course, hate the absence of baskets. Jaycee is okay, but... I played it more this past year than I had in the past. Kinda bored with it, I guess.
Cascade is a great course, but really needs a re-design of a handful of holes (1, 2, 3, 9, 10, 11, 12, 16, 18) intersecting with pedestrian/vehicle traffic. And cement teepads would be nice, too.
All that to say, it will be a welcome addition to the GR DG scene.

my worry is that it will end up being another riverside. it's basically right on the river and I'm sure it's prone to flooding.. and I guarantee there will be geese

Ugh! Geese. Hate 'em. They've managed to "fowl" up Riverside, Lamar & Heritage.

You should play fallasburg. A bit out the way but worth it.

It is a little bit of a drive. I've played the Sunday Fall/Winter league a few time this year.
I just want something that isn't over 1/2 an hours drive, ya know? It's five minutes to Riverside, 20 to Jaycee or Cascade, 30 to Brewer. I'd rather spend money on something other than gas. Like new discs. Or even a fee to play DG on a well-kept course.
