Pros: elevation, not too boring. this course is fine to play at but by no means a great course. the regulars are pretty cool guys most of the time and lines arent too bad for a popular course.
Cons: graffiti, trash, dirty old man steals discs.

Motor City Chain Gang !
Pros: Dual tees makes this course an 18 hole course packed in a 9 hole park.
Cons: Emerald ash borers and vandalism to baskets & tee signs.
Other Thoughts: I won the 1989 MCCG Novice division here. Aced #2 back when there was bushes guarding the pin and aced the original #5

Dirty gem of a course!
Pros: The course is surprisingly long for as small as it is with a couple holes that top 500ft. The shorter holes offer some heart racing ace runs. The tee placement is tricky and challenging in most cases with a fair amount of ellevation changes. Multiple tee pads keep it from getting to be boring and the same 'ol thing if you play it frequently. I really like the different tee pads because it changes the shot selection drastically in some cases, and makes it possible to play a full 18 holes without just seeming like you are playing the shorts and the longs. Unless you have no control what-so-ever you will not loose any discs.
Cons: Unfortunately, most of the con's of this course have little to do with the course itself.
Parking is non-existant! You must park along the curb, and on the weekends you can be looking for a while.
The course is a city park in a less than safe neighborhood so you should not bring anything valuable. That is a bummer because this course would be a great night golf course because of its size and the small chances of lost plastic. But, if you are playing here, you are familiar with Detroit and it's suburbs and if that's the case then its just an average neighborhood.
Course maintenance is bad. Litter and overflowing garbage cans are everywhere. The baskets and tee pads are old and dilapitated and could use to be updated.
Other Thoughts: This is where I played my 1st round of disc golf and I learned to love the course and the sport right here. It is a nice little course to get a quick round in and to bring beginners....in the daytime.
I love playing here and would give it a score of 3+ if the cons weren't so bad. I haven't played here in some time so, if it has been cleaned up since, someone leave an up to date review.
If the above mentioned cons do not bother you then do yourself a favor and bang out a round here.
Oh ya, favorite hole, #8
The hole plays about 375ft from atop a small hill down into a valley. Looks pretty straight forward except for the large bushy group of trees on the right just daring you to test them. Hyzer a shot in over top of those trees and you got a nice chance at a birdy, (or an Ace, if your arm is that big!)

Pros: I had a fun time here I would play it again, cement tee pads, course map at hole #1, nice use of area and elevation changes, Discraft baskets, good variety for a short course, practice basket, no place to lose a disc, great place to take beginners, pretty long holes for a short course, nice layout course plays in a cirlce through park so you could start on different holes,
Cons: No parking lot, most of the signs have been vandelized and there is 2 tees for each basket so I could see some trouble navigating for your first time, only obstacles are large mature trees providing little challenge you could have a horrible drive and still be able to lay up on most holes,
Other Thoughts: Sign with course map is near corner of Detroit st. and Rochester rd.
