Pros: Cement Tee Pads

Nice Signs for each hole. Very easy to navigate between holes with the option of bailing out back at the parking lot after 9 holes.

Nice use of elevation on almost every hole.

Well Defined Fairways with well place obstacles Forcing almost every type of shot.


Cons: Almost all of the holes were fairly wooded. No room to throw the long bomb if you have one.

I don't have a long bomb so it's really not a con to me though.

Other Thoughts: There was only on real long hole so this course could definitely be enjoyed by players of all skill levels.

We played this round in January so it I couldn't really tell how rough the rough really was. But it appeared to have a lot of thorns, looks like it could be pretty thick in the summer.

Overall this course may be one of my new favorites.

I can't wait to play it in the spring time.

Pros: Great flow, cement pads and signage. The fairways have had all the leaves removed which is amazing in its self. This course has a great fun factor and is very clean. Great scenery.
Cons: None for me but the short holes will not be favored by the big gun arm types that have no clean up game.
Other Thoughts: Well worth the drive. I will be returning here time and time again.

Pros: -Quiet. Idyllic woods. Saw deer while playing.
-Nicely defined fairways.
-Good amount of elevation changes for the area.
-Good concrete teepads, except hole 9 which was still dirt, and signage. Very easy to find your way around, once you're at hole 1.
-Good variation on shot types. Front nine favors righties, back nine has more lefty/forehand shots. Uphills and downhills. Straight shots, and big hooks.
-Bathrooms and water on site.
-No vandalism or litter. Please keep it that way.
Cons: -Evidence of a lot of poison ivy during poison ivy season, but not bad during November.
-Carpeted by leaves in early November, we were lucky to not lose any.
-Pay to park, but changed to 10$ from 24$ annually with car registration, which makes it a lot cheaper. Support your state parks. Probably free if you play in the off season, too, as there was no staff on site to collect our money.
-6 different kinds of thorny vines in the roughs. Not too dense, but you want to stay on the fairways.
Other Thoughts: This course deserves much better scores than it received when it was only 9 holes. I noticed that it had not been reviewed since it went to 18 holes, and made the journey, hoping it would exceed the 2.5 stars rating it had averaged before. I was not disappointed. As pretty much the farthest west of the courses that can still be considered in the Ann Arbor area, it has a lot of strong competition, but I definitely found it worth the trip and a solid addition to what is already a very strong local scene. Come out and enjoy some of the most peaceful disc golf in the area.
