Pros: Aesthetic-- Course plays through a state park but is exclusively DG. plays through rolling terrain and around swampy areas.
Teepads-- nice to have teepads but some are a bit short. the longer holes 12-18 are a bit longer tees.
Teesigns-- most of them are there, some of them have distances, most of them do not, or idiots have sharpied them to read the wrong distance. no layout on the signs which could be super helpful in places. there is one teepad that faces entirely the wrong direction.
Routing/Nav-- easy easy. nice to have the option to play 9, 18, or 24 holes by changing your routing at 7 or 11. nicely broken in pathways help to assure your routing.
Baskets-- Nice discrafts. could most certainly use flags to aide in visibility in these thick woods.
challenge/variety-- most of the holes from 1-11 and 18-24 are relatively short and unchallenging. please see the cons for holes 12-17. Plays up down over left right and every which way but loose, a nice variety here.
Cons: 12-17-- such a departure from the original 18 it almost doesn't feel like the same course. they're odd to be sure. overly long and overly complicated for this course. no definitive lines and no way to make par.
Rough-- Super freakin' rough, but again, we shouldn't be in the weeds to begin with.
Trash/upkeep-- there is a ton of trash here and a ton of deadfall from both planned tree removal and natural tree fall.
Other Thoughts: this was fun after playing toboggan but there were parts that were fun and parts that were just over done and punishing. the balance of this course is thrown way off by the middle 6...

Mix and Match
Pros: Hollywoods has a good mix of holes. The long six holes added in the back (12-17) are crazy. Shortest hole out there is 310 with one close to 600. The remaining holes have a some challenging holes but a lot of birdie opportunities for the average player. Signs on every hole and multiple lay outs for rounds of 9, 18, and 24! Great place to spend a day at.
Cons: Short tee pads, your first step might be from off the pad.

Pros: Great course, great layout. They have it set up with extra baskets in case people want to just play the front or back 9. Also its very well maintained by the local club and the county parks.
Cons: Extra 6 holes on the back are pretty tough and still need some trimming before they can get better.
Other Thoughts: No mosquitoes like goldenrod which is a plus.

Pros: -Challenging layout, lots of elevation changes and shots requiring good accuracy
-Not too busy
-Course is relatively well maintained. There was a "course cleanup crew" present while we were playing
Cons: -Short tee pads, sone holes have no pads at all
-Lots of hill climbing
Other Thoughts: Lots of hard shots followed by a couple redeeming holes. Relatively forgiving course, finished at par on my first game at the course. Accuracy is a must, there are a lot of heavily wooded shots.

Great All Around Course
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: *Completely updated review since the original review in 2010*
-A nice course in a disc golf exclusive area in a state park
-Good variety of shots
-Original 18 is well beat in with well defined lines
-Easy turn offs to play 9, 18, 24
-Tables and trashcans at most tees
-The newer back 6 holes are a good challenge (also in cons)
-Original 18 is fairly simple, but good variety
-Baskets and pads are in good repair
Cons: -Idiots like to draw on anything and everything here
-New tee number posts got put in and then the idiots drew all over them or knocked them down
-Despite having tons of trashcans, people still find the need to just throw their garbage everywhere
-Upkeep on the fairways isn't the greatest
-Rough is usually 3ft tall
-The newer back 6 are completely out of place at this course. They are 100% different than the original 18. Lines are not well defined. Holes are very long. BUT, they are a good challenge and I don't have a problem playing them. It's just that they completely break the flow of the original course
-Can be very busy with chuckers in the afternoons/evenings and weekends
Other Thoughts: This course is my home course, and definitely still a favorite to play. There is still enough challenge to tick you off, or even make you feel good about certain shots. I avoid the course at all costs during the chucker times of the day.

Great Place to Play
Pros: Practice basket at beginning of course. Cement tees, although a little short, are in good shape. Great targets and wonderful scenery. The course is laid out very nice with an even flow from basket to next tee. Maps/scorecards are available at the toll booth and at the parking lot. The course wraps you around back towards the parking lot after 9-holes, just in case you need to leave or retrieve. A good ratio of long-short, wide-narrow. Gas station nearby that sells beer, liquor, disc and eatables.
Cons: The new 'extra' holes are obscenely long and fundamentally wrong. Tron, with his light-disc, would have a hard time getting through those holes without crying, cussing and quitting. They could be cut in half and still be hard as hell.
There seems to be a contingency of feral adolescents rummaging through the garbage cans looking for supper, spilling their contents all over this really nice park. Vandalism is rampant.
There seems to be a heavily traveled roadway nearby, causing some noise that is not in line with where you feel you are.
Other Thoughts: If you want a fun and challenging round of golf, or two, this place is perfect. If you want to visit your dark side, play the extra holes. Don't say that I didn't warn you. They have some promise, just not yet. All in all, a great 18-hole course with some added bonuses.

Variation, trim me a bit though
Pros: Nice Variety- small elevation changes, thickly wooded and more open
Cool course layout with different holes to lead you to 18 or 9 at holes 8a and 8b.
Nice paths that work through the rough and tall grasses so its easier to get to and spot your disc.
Cons: Needs a little trimming, but thats the norm for most MI courses.
One hole on the back 9 is all thick prickly bushes on the right side of it, almost impossible to find your disc so be careful.
Bug Spray needed.
Other Thoughts: Locals were nice and let us play through. Course signs actually had scorecards and pencils which is a unusual pleasantry.
Would be a much better course if parking and trimming issues were taken care of, but a fun course none-the-less.

Holly Park Course Review
Pros: The course seems to be well maintained the baskets have bright orange makers on them and it flows very well!
Cons: Has a lot of trees not very open! Pretty busy most of the time!
Other Thoughts: Has optional courses that you can play if it is busy and want to get away from some people!
