I played new brewer yesterday. I believe the courses are officially called the north course and the south.
The south is almost complete, needs one pad and some finishing touches on a couple others.
The north, old blue, is playable but has no tee signs and is almost impossible to navigate.
At the rate they're making progress I imagine it'll be finished within the next few weeks.

Tons of easy dueces

Talked to a guy today after i finished a round at whitehall. He said there is a course being built in Montegue. They are just awaiting baskets. He said the fairways were pretty much ready they just need the baskets to arrive and install them. he also said that he has been approached by three other communities to put in courses there. not sure which three. since he was arriving as i was getting ready to leave.

that's montague.
my home town.
there have issues with some of the zoning and the city/township disavowing any responsibility for any injuries that may occur on their land.
that said, my bff jason church is helping design this course and I'm stoked for it..

Thumbs up I was wondering when I'd see this come up after following HCMA updates...

Disc Golf @ Wolcott Mill in the near future?

On page 20 theres a little footnote regarding new projects. Remember, it's just a draft of the 2013-2017 HCMA Master Plan but good to know our requests haven't fallen on deaf ears. Hopefully the MCCG will be heading this one up. They have $60,000 as a rough estimate which sounds a little high but it's just a draft, I'm sure it will be different.
Hope they can put it in a good spot and off the horse trails :P

Im really hoping to see another course put in the Lansing area. We got two dead golf courses that were beautiful as ball golf courses and a couple fundraiser tourneys played on them. Would be awesome to see one or both of them turned into disc golf courses.

Carly's is amazing. Talk about completely exceeding my expectations. I knew that property could house a course of high caliber, but I never thought it would happen. Kudos to them.

Too bad it took a friggin' death to make it happen, tho.

It's sad to see that much the rest of the information included is not so rosy. Looks like they're projecting some lean years for the park system.

Memorial Park in Frankenmuth just got brand new concrete tee pads.

They're enormous...I've never seen concrete pads so large.

^^^This is NOT TRUE! Not sure where rumors about this course are coming from. I was with the course designer today (who is in touch with the parks dept. on a regular basis), and everything is still in the works. They are having a harder time grading the land then what was originally thought, which has slowed the progress down. This course is still going to happen, and hopefully we will be adding to the directory and playing it this year.
