Pros: Aesthetic--plays through a multiuse park. other activities are not impacted by DG and vice versa

Baskets--nice new chainstars. Grippy.

Routing/nav--easy, trails are clear and easy to follow. not easy to get lost here

Variety--for a small park. it has it's bases covered. left, right, and straight.

Cons: teesigns-or the lack thereof

teepads--kick strips on 7 of 9 holes. pretty rutty and (loose) sandy.

only a 9-hole--but I don't think this course could support 18.

Risk v reward--none to speak of.

Elevation change--none to speak of

Blind holes--had to scout damn near every hole to figure out where the basket was.
Other Thoughts: this course isn't as bad as b3nder makes it sounds. I had fun.

Pros: New nine hole course is in for 2012. The old course and posts are completely gone in favor of a new wooded course with holes 200-350 feet long, including new Chainstar baskets. Has some respectably challenging fairways, and is a big improvement over what had been the lowest rated course in the area.
Cons: Still only nine holes, with some other areas of the park available for golf not put to use. Poor dirt tees, tricky navigation (Holes 2, 3, 6 and 8 are hard to find). Hole 8 is an awkward right hand turn that could use some redesigning, with no real paths available.
Other Thoughts: Some work has gone in to clearing respectable fairways in a flat, wooded field between the border of the Muskegon Country Airport and Martin Rd. Course expands to the south and east of previous course. Character wise, it seems to be a flat, wooded course similar to Winstrom Park or some sections of Whitehall Township Park. Still not the top-notch park that the area still needs, but solid improvement over the previous course.
