Pros: The best of the 4 at Earl Brewer Park. A little more open and allows to you air it out a bit more.

Tee pads - good
Baskets - ok
Signs - ok
Cons: Very busy, and you have to be careful to watch for crazy discs flying at you. Very easy to lose discs here as well.
Other Thoughts: If your in GR it is worth the stop, but the park is way to busy and the quality is not all that high to make it a destination.

Pros: Brewer Gold offers holes with a fair amount of distance. All but two are over 300 feet, and one is just over 500 feet. Ever so slight elevation changes are present in holes 1-5. These, along with one very sharp right dogleg, create a few blind holes. Fairways are well defined with punishing rough throughout. A couple of protected baskets add a challenge. One by a large, disc eating bush and the other nestled between some trees/bushes.

-Signs/Teepads/Baskets: Basic signs provide hole number and distance on all holes. Concrete tees are in good shape. Aside from hole #1s "rustbucket", baskets are in decent shape. Garbage buckets are near most tees, and a couple of picnic tables provide rest spots.

Gold is generally the least busy of the four 9-holers on site at Brewer Park, which is a multi-purpose park but the disc golf area is in the back and dedicated only to disc golf. That is a huge pro to me.


Cons: It is very open, so it favors throwing far over line shaping. This also makes it somewhat boring to me. The flow from hole 1 to 2 is bad. You have to backtrack slightly. A few holes play along/near the main road in and out of the park, so exercise caution.

The rough here is mostly in the form of thigh-high grass in the summer. Some discs may go in and never come out.

Holes 6-9 are set down lower than the rest of the course and can hold water for a very long time. Its not uncommon to have areas of standing water in mid summer.
Other Thoughts: Not my favorite (White, in my opinion) of the four 9-hole courses on site at Brewer, but it does offer a different type of play than the other three. In fact, all four are different and can be fun in their own way. The park is just east of US-131 and is worth a look from anyone passing through Grand Rapids. It also has playgrounds, soccer fields, and a few porta-johns in the front of the park. Spinski's Disc Golf Pro Shop is right around the corner near 76th & Division.
