Pros: it was easy to find and fun to play. made it easy for family members who never played, to enjoy it.

the cig tubes are gret and id love to see them here in detroit.

no litter! must be the great people of the north, i didnt see any trash on the course. just nice to see.
Cons: the tee pads, much like diggins, need to be 30 to 40% longer... they are just too short. causes dangerous problems for people rolling off the front.

trees. some holes could use some grooming but i say that tongue in cheek.

what the heck is a 7 and 7r? its a 24 hole course... ill assume 7r was the missing 6 holes? could use some signage to depict that situation... its a tourist town... and im from out of town... how was i suposed to know?

Aesthetic-- area used for dg is mostly dg exclusive. course does cross access roads a couple times (even playing down the roads at times) and comes near to some more public areas.

Baskets-- discrafts, in great repair and somewhat visible in dense woods.

Teesigns-- they are there but they should/could be more descriptive as to where the baskets are. It seems that scouting about half the holes may be necessary.

Routing/Nav-- Easy. follow the paths and you'll be fine. I was impressed that the transition from the regular 18 to the alt 6 was as easy as it was. the pads for 7 and 7R were literally right next to each other. There was one longer walk between 13 and 14 but it was pretty easy to figure out.

Teepads- nice, a little short but the holes here are pretty short as well. clear enough, leave covered but that's to be expected.

12R-- Special mention to this hole. dual fairways make this one a special challenge. the right fairway is super tight while the left fairway is a little more open
Variety & Risk v Reward-- there is a lot of repetition here, the challenge factor is pretty small with the short holes here. Water comes into play on one hole (7R I believe).

Shortness- this course is seriously short and technical but the basket placement could be improved to improve the challenge factor.

Parking- I wasn't sure where to park for this one, I parked across from the first tee between some traffic cones.
Other Thoughts:
I think this course was fun but it was just that fun. Nothing more. It wasn't challenging or exhilarating. the lack of elevation didn't help.

Pros: Tight course, challenging tee shots due to narrow fairways. Concrete pads, posts with par/distance on them at the tee.
Cons: Mosquitoes are ridiculous during the summer months. Some holes are hidden behind trees, tough to see.

 A Family Fun Course!

Pros: When we arrived at the course, the first thing we noticed was how close Hole 1 is to the parking lot. You literally get out of the car look behind you and it's right there.

The course was very clean when I went through. The other positive was the cigarette butt containers at every hole. I hate seeing a pile of cigarette butts so this was nice.

I find the course to be very scenic at some points. A couple of the holes have you finish near the road and you can see the beach and it looks really nice.

It is definitely a family friendly course which is great to get more people involved.

The Local help was really nice here as well. We caught up to a group and they told us about the course and which way to go because there are two hole #7. One is a reverse and they said if you have the time take that route. We even got lost trying to find a place and a local helped us get to our destination.

Cons: The swampy muck at hole 2 can be pretty brutal if you don't get around it.

Most of the holes were literally walk up to the tee. Look straight ahead and there is the hole. There wasn't really much variation other than a couple holes where you go left or right.

Some of the signs are gone at the holes. You can see the nails there of where the sign was but most are gone.

All of the holes are <300' so there are no power shots needed and it added to the lack of variety.

One of the locals told me that it can get really busy at times so there is sometimes a wait. I didn't have this problem but it was a Thursday afternoon so it was to be expected.
Other Thoughts: This course was a lot of fun! I took my dad out here and he is fairly new to Disc golfing and he absolutely loved this course. He learned a lot from playing it and he wants to play more which is a plus to me. I plan on making a few more trips out here if I can. I almost got 2 aces and I want to try and get my first on this course. I would highly recommend this course to anyone that is new and also break in a few discs with the wide variety of trees in the area.

Pros: you will throw every thing you have open and tight holes. left right and tight.
Cons: I know it is winter but almost all of the tee pads were covered in ice. farways were packed down by park trucks but are now a sheet of ice.
Other Thoughts: a few more warm days and the ice should melt but untill bring some spikes

-I liked the "feel" of the course. woodsy with a beach visible on a few holes.
-nice signs with hole number, distance, and par
-tee pads were decent, not great but not a hinderance
-a ton of ace runs
-would be great for beginners
-navigation wasn't a problem
-the locals were nice, a couple large groups let us play through and a some guys gave my friend and I advice on the hole
-very repetitive. every hole is under 300'. almost every hole is straight, and when there is a dogleg there is an optional straight shot as well. hole 6 is a dogleg left with an alley between some trees that is just straight. hole 11 is a dogleg right but again has the option to just throw straight through a narrow gap.
-lots of trash and graffiti
-it would be nice if the signs had a picture of the hole, but most baskets were easy enough to find
-tee pads were all different shapes and sizes. I'd rather a course have the same size pad on every hole so that I don't have to get used to new footing on every drive.
-no elevation change and no water hazards.
Other Thoughts: bring bug spray. terrible mosquitos.

Review By: DirtyWhiteBoy
Played: 6  Reviewed: 2  Exp: 3.7 Years
Pros: +Concrete Tees
+Great Location
+Challenging Course due to the amount of trees
+Footage and Par marked Clearly on every hole
Cons: -Some holes can be tricky to navigate if you've never played here before
-Little variation of hole design
Other Thoughts: *DO NOT FORGET BUGSPRAY! The mosquitos were thick
*Great location
*I would like to see more variety in both hole design and length but over all a good/fun course

I played this course over the 4th of July weekend so the beach was crowded and I was unable to play "Lakeside" but "Parkside" was a lot of fun and quite easy to find, just follow the lake to the park.

 Short toss, still challenging

Pros: * Clearly marked tee signs
* Distances marked on most holes
* Great Chainstar baskets
Cons: * Couldn't see a lot of the baskets
* Lots of vulgar graffiti on the tee signs
* Baskets seemed to be a little lower than normal
Other Thoughts: * Short course (almost all less than 250')
* Really tight fairways that were pretty crowded with trees
* Nice accessible location

I was travelling through Michigan and stopped at this park for lunch not even realizing that there was a course there! What a great surprise when we drove up and saw chainstars. In spite of the fact that I couldn't see a lot of the baskets and the fairways were pretty crowded with trees, I still managed to shoot just +1. Not a difficult course, but not an easy one either. If you're in the area, give it a shot.

Pros: Concrete tee pads. Nice baskets. Lake view on some holes. Pretty clean park. Definite ace possibilities.
Cons: some lanes were very tight. some holes had no apparent lane at all. Tee pads were not consistent size. Signs were poor. Much profane graffiti on sign posts.
Other Thoughts: overall great course to play while enjoying Northern Michigan's great outdoors.

Pros: This park features 18 original holes and 6 additional holes as well as a pole hole course on the other side of the street. The holes are quite short, as none eclipse the 300 foot mark, and largely straight forward through a serene forest route. The tees feature concrete pads and each hole is marked with a 4X4 post that clearly displays the hole number. Navigation is intuitive with little chance of misguided bumbling. The course was quite clean on this day, which allowed the splendor of the forest to dominate the scene. The land is largely flat here with only subtle variance in elevation in a few spots. Although moderately wooded, the holes provide fair play with definite defined lanes and landing areas as opposed to being a tree peppered crap shoot. Skill is allowed to trump luck.
Cons: The short nature of these holes is the only potential drawback apart from the fact that the basket placements are generally easy and not overly challenging. Variety is a bit lacking. There are many straight down the pipe shots here that require little in the way of creative shot making. The alternate holes are quite wild at this time and could benefit from repeated play.
Other Thoughts: This course is an ideal family course. It is a perfect setting for a beginner to learn the game as it is simple and forgiving. Experienced players can enjoy the charms of nature and have a great time working these holes. Solid ace runs and plentiful birdie opportunities ensure an enjoyable round with little potential for frustration. A nice little wander in the woods.
