Pros: A mix of long and short holes. Some were 300+ feet, while others were less than 150 feet. Navigation was relatively easy.
Cons: Difficult to find the tee for hole two. Course is only open during certain hours, due to the fact that the course is behind a middle school (i.e., course is not open during school hours for obvious reasons).
Pros: Fun 9 hole layout. Favorite holes are 1, 6, 7 (wooded holes)
Innova baskets are a change from the normal Michigan scene. Being from the South we see yellow bands often. **note: I really have enjoyed the DGA baskets. The newer style catch really well. I prefer the visibility of Innova baskets.
I finally played the alternate tees and it made the course much more fun.
Wind presents a challenge here.
Cons: There seems to be a great group of disc golfers growing in this area. Unfortunately they are being stymied by the school. I'd like to see some changes here to make it more challenging and less monotonous.
Other Thoughts: With some love and school approval, this could be a gem.
You'll find my personal hole 1 alternate left of current tee at a downed log. It's a right hand hyzer that helps remove the swamp from the shot.
My personal hole 7 tee is left of current tee. Again, a hyzer shot but tight. Very fun to toss and has ace potential.
Keep growing the sport in Port Huron, fellas.

It's the only course in the area.
Very good signs.
Decent variety in length and open/tight fairways
has a practice basket
VERY repetitive. 5 of the 9 holes (2,3,5,8,9) are basically the same shot.
dirt/grass tee pads
practice basket was broken (the basket part is broken off and is on the ground)
The course is closed during school hours
I wasn't sure if it is a pro or a con but there is no alcohol allowed, it is on school property.
favorite hole: #4
420' shot. slightly to the right. there is a river running to the left
least favorite hole: #9
402' shot. way too many trees in the "fairway." It's basically impossible to get a decent drive.

Easy, quick, and fun.
-Only course in the Port Huron area.
-Hard to get lost or confused
-Quick and easy
-Good mixture of long/short/open/woody/water holes
-Wind is a strong factor on some days.
-Not playable during school hours
Other Thoughts: -
-Fun, quick, and easy. This is the only course in the area and if you have an itch to play it will satisfy you.
-The course as good variety, there are wooded holes with obvious paths, and open fields that are long and allow you to rip it.
-Good course design that mixes in short/short/long/long ect.
-A little repetitive and easy.
-Hole one had water on the right and could be prone to flooding. This is a very aceable hole.
-Hole 2 is a short hyzer to the right, this hole will be aced many times.
-Hole 3 is the longest on the course. Wind is a BIG factor on driving and putting.
-Hole 4 is a cool hole that has a deep canal next to it. It would take a very errant throw to hit the canal, but if it did go down in that water, bye bye disc.
-Hole 5 is a huge dog leg left, there is a path through the woods. Easily one of the better challenges. (If you know Oshtemo in Kalamazoo think hole #5 from the shorts)
-Hole 6 is a very easy and an aceable short shot although it is a guarded by trees.
-Hole 7 is about the same as hole 6 just a different approach, again guarded well by trees. (If your from Kzoo area think Knollwood hole #2 and #5--very similar)
-Hole 8 is a long bomb that hyzers to the left, this is a challenging shot because if you go errant just a little you'll end up in some challenging woods.
-Hole 9 I would consider the signature hole on the course. The pathways are guarded by old thick trees, an easy path is to the left however, the school and glass windows come into play. The basket is also well placed and guarded by trees.
Overall a fun course, reminds me of Begg Park (Battle Creek) without the extensive scenery. If you got an itch and your in the area it is worth playing. Course is located on a school property and is not playable during school times.
