Pros: Course map in the parking lot, easy to navigate, nice baskets, lots of ace runs on all the holes, good to work with the putter and mid range, Nice little 9 hole course.
Cons: Short, Dirt tees(Sand really), Close to the highway, Not much of a challenge to play or many hazards.
Other Thoughts: I like to use this as a nice warm up 9 on my way to Kalamazoo or Battle Creek. This is one of the nicer little 9 hole courses that I've played compared to Middleville, Hudsonville or Norton Shores.

Pros: -No waiting, ever.
-Easy to navigate (Has a course map at #1)
-Generally clean, nearly impossible to lose a disc.
-Nice locals.
-A course with baskets. Fair enough.
-Nice and easy to play in big groups.
Cons: -Difficulty level. This is one of the easiest courses you will play.
-Very little hole variety.
-Flat.
-Hole #5. Aim right, or there's a chance your disc will float over the fence towards the highway. It is a pain to retrieve.
-Tee pads are "dirt" (at this point they are almost sand) and if it has rained at all, they will be puddles and you'll have to drive to the sides of them.
Other Thoughts: This course will not appeal to skillful players. It is a very short, 9-hole course with very little incentive to make someone return.

However, I feel this course deserves a 2 for one reason - this is the best learning course I have ever seen. If you are just starting out, or are still trying to perfect your anhyzers/forehands and midrange/putting game, I feel like there is no better course around to go play a couple rounds and practice. The owner clearly did not have this in mind, but if he was trying to create a practice course, he hit it spot on.

Pros: -Very rare to have a wait time.
-Generally clean
-Baskets
-Ideal course to practice mid-range throws and putts.
-Ideal course to learn how to drive accurately
-Easily accessible
-Not terribly difficult to locate
Cons: -Poses no real challenge to players of a fairly decent skill level
-Hole distances are all fairly identical
-Course is almost completely flat
-Dirt tee-boxes
-No hole indicators
Other Thoughts: This is my hometown course. I learned to how to play here and still am not bored with the course. I would not recommend going out of your way to play this course, but for those that it is available to, it is an ideal location to take your game to the next level.
