Chanllenging Course but Enjoyable.
Pros: This course has some cool unique shots. This course can be challenging at times for a beginner(ie water holes and this foliage).
Cons: Bugs! Course can get muddy if its played within a few days of a rainstorm. I've lost a few discs here and i consider myself a pretty decent player so bring your "A" game. A lot of new people here trash the place with garbage. Can get pretty crowded at times. No concrete tees-only mats that can be slippery.
Other Thoughts: This course if fun to play early/late in the season. You will avoid bugs and thick woods this way. Bring something to drink. There are no concessions. Bug spray is a must. If you see some trash please pick it up. Help out everyone who likes to play a clean course. I would appreciate it!

Lot of trees!
Pros: Had some pretty challenging holes, many of which have plenty of trees to avoid. This course offers a variety of different hole layouts, with elevation changes, trees, dog legs, and water hazzards. I saw many trash cans and benches throughout the course.
Cons: Rubber tee pads don't offer the best footing. Although most holes had signs, holes 1,2, and 18 didn't. Can get real congested with groups of people at times making it hard to play a quick round. Many of the signs that were there were vandalized with graffiti.
Other Thoughts: This is a real fun and challenging course. I highly recommend playing here.

I Grew Up At Goldenod
Pros: The Holes being in the woods forces you to have a good balance of power and technical skills.
Well kept up, You'll see members of the Flint Town Flyerz cleaning alot.
Great people, they'd love to show you around and help you out with disc retrieval.
Lots of leagues
Cons: Frustration is the reason most people don't like it. tree into tree into tree if you're not careful.
During bad weather, the course suffers.
Other Thoughts: Goldenrod never disappoints.

Pros: Awesome layout, wide variety of elevation and terrain changes, you'll have a great time.
Cons: There is a lot of water. Tee pads can be slick in the rain.
Other Thoughts: I played this course for the first time and had no problem. We played a game of Wolf through 30 holes. I would have to say that this is probably the most fun course I have played yet. When I went there were maps of the course and score cards near hole one in a plastic container. Definately play it if you have the chance.

--The maintenance is pretty good, but its more of a natural course than like a city course though. Goldenrod is not like any course you've ever played! The layout is mostly tech but it has 3 or 4 big arm holes. The layout runs through moderate woods, tight woods, open fields, a big river, and all through and around random swamps.
Its hard to follow. You must print a map from this site if youve never played here. Theres no maps at the course.
--Not first time friendly here!! I've brought friends here for the first time, and even with me telling them where the water hazards are, they still lost a couple discs. I go here alot so I got it on lock, but I can almost guarantee the first time you play here you will lose at least 1 disc in some type of water.
Access To Course--
Located on Irish rd. Park is on left hand side (coming from I-69), its on the other side of a small bridge (kinda hard to see and easy to miss the entrance. A good indicator that your almost to the park is you'll see a bmx track on the right hand side of the road, its about a 1/4 mile past that).
Once in park, hole #1 is on the left hand side of the parking lot.
