Two of Sabattus' courses (Falcon and Eagle) share the same piece of land.

In Maple Hill's case, they call it four layouts of the same course (Red, White, Blue, Gold). In Sabattus' case, they call it two courses by two different names. Po-tay-toe, po-tah-toe; to-may-to, to-mah-to.

So I guess whether it really qualifies as four different courses depends on your viewpoint. Two groups of casual players can play different layouts/courses at the same time with only some potential conflict, but you'd never want to run tournament rounds concurrently on both at once.

Highbridge has more distinct courses and more holes than any other complex I've found so far. One complex you didn't mention is the Ludington courses, with 3 24 hole courses it has as many holes as the places with 4 18s.

Several years ago I did this list of multi-course facilities:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...2c&usp=sharing

It suppose it would be nice if "multi-course facility" were some kind of searchable checkbox on DGCR.

The PDGA has the option to build two more course there in the future eventually bringing it to five plus the minigolf course.
Please elaborate on this mini golf thing. Where's the course?

THE IDGC mini course is in between Steady Ed and WR Jackson (I believe) . . . basically just go and throw way right on #1 of Steady Ed and you will find mini baskets down there. I didn't see any tees or anything though and I wish I would have asked because I would have played it. I am surprised it isnt listed on DGCR since there are other mini courses listed.

It's between Steady and Warner. I haven't played it but it may only be 9 holes. I think Hosfeld may have designed the layout.

Cedarock Park also has a temp course that goes up 2-3 times a year; there's also the possibility they might be getting a smaller rec course permanently installed if they can buy the land at the front of the park.

Thanks Chuck . . . I wasn't remembering which course was on the other side of Steady Ed's Memorial course. I am curious if anyone has played it?

Bottom line....Lemon Lake has 4 permanent courses, 1 of which includes 2 sets of tee pads.
Entirely correct, as far as I know (although the scrapping of the new course is news to me) except that Silver/Gold is comprised of in some cases two tee pads AND two baskets. Just to be precise.
