Branstorm falls into that group of good courses around Flip category. I played poorly, the round I played there, and got myself whooped by a youngster. It's a lot like the "Charlotte wooded" courses though, which may not be what Mando is after. Not necessarily the same types of trees; but in terms of tight, wooded lines; hole after hole....no underbrush though; you don't have to search for discs.

Wow ! Thanks for all the great info.
Michigan Schedule looking like this;
Day one & two Linden
Holly Woods
(Need to choose one more from; Kensington BL,
Hudson Mills & Independence Lake)
Day three drive to Shelby to play Flip City-either camp there or head to Ludington
Day four Mason Co & maybe Leviathan-drive to Traverse City camp
Day five Hickory Hills & Carlys Playground
Day six- either play MK & hit the U.P or
backtrack to Ludington for the 9:00 ferry to Manitowoc,WI.

I've played 100 different DGc in Michigan. I wish Khandahar was still in the ground, but since it's not I'd recommend all the ones you want to play along with Crystal Mountain DGC in Thompsonville, granted it's only 9 holes to date (with plans of future expansion), but your going to really like this DGc if you play it especially if like a challenging course to play. The Crowle Hole DGC in Harbor Springs is pretty cool. I'd say they have 5 signature holes to go along with a really good DGC to play (Petosky area, Silver Mountain is a cool DGC, It's a couple miles in from the great Mackinac Bridge on the Upper Penisula, Very Scenic, though a little confusing finding some holes. But overall a good DGC that you'll be glad that you played. Mt. Pleasant has a couple cool DGC, one is at an alternative High School that actually teaches Disc Golf to their students (but such is the norm for the Mt. Pleasant area as Central michigan U. offers DG as an elective), This course is called the Ferns @ Oddessy (High School). They recently added DGA baskets to the course so I know your really going to love playing this diamond in the rough. And the other DGC in MT. Pleasant that I would say you should play is Deerfield Park. Not enough recognition goes Mt. Pleasant ways and I'm just saying.....Reed County Park in Ithaca is another good one and just south of Mt. Pleasant. Brats is a cool course especially if you play in the friday night league with host Terry Calhoun. I think you also find that the Ponds @ Lakeshore will also tickle your fancy if you got the chance to play this DGc, it's in Ypsilanti.

I know your going to have a blast playing up in Michigan. Great state and a GREAT STATE for Disc Golf courses.

PS. if your in the Ludington area and looking for some GREAT FOOD, go to Bortell's, Fresh Seafood everyday and can purchase by the pound. On top of that they have their own private beachhead to Lake Michigan a couple driveways down from the store. It's located on Lakeshore Blvd which is very very close to the Beauty, Beast and Goliath DGC. There's also a carry out nearby that sells discs, beer, and the hard stuff and even has a practice basket.

Have fun------------------------- - +

(Need to choose one more from; Kensington BL,
Hudson Mills & Independence Lake) For my money, Hudson all day. 48 holes, $7.00, limited crowds, and some of the most impeccable groundskeeping you'll find anywhere.
Day three drive to Shelby to play Flip City-either camp there or head to Ludington
Day four Mason Co & maybe Leviathan-drive to Traverse City camp
Day five Hickory Hills & Carlys Playground

You're heading to Wisco after Michigan? Just a heads up, it's a freakin' haul across the UP. Don't mean to discourage you, because doing the Mackinaw bridge is a good experience and the UP is god's country, but it can be a draining trip. No expressway, all two lane highways with limited passing lanes. If you do opt for the UP, make an effort to hit The Tailings in Iron River, MI.

Knowing Mando he is probably going to be up at 5 every morning and hike or bike across the UP. People up there better hide their beer fridges though.

Ha. Not time to cross UP on bike, but one scenario would be taking my touring bike with camping gear on ferry to Wisco,(leaving vehicle in Ludington) and bike touring to Silver Creek,Winter Park,Rollin Ridge.
