Pros: --Very challenging, very fun, big throwers delight.
--The holes are memorable and exciting.
--Each hole presents a challenge whether it is wooded or wide open. Hilly or flat, windy or not windy.
--This course has a great amount of variety on the holes! And even one water hole!
--The holes are in general very long and well groomed.
--The holes have signs. (albiet old and needing replacement)
--Well marked and layed out.
--Well groomed (crop cirlces) that clearly define the fairways.
--Very long wooded hole (longest in the surrounding area)
--Hole 18 is awesome and scenic!
--Not busy and secluded!
Cons: --Immature players destroying signs and not respecting the course.
--Springtime between May15th and June 15th ish has many many many ticks!!!!
--Grass and fields can get long and easy to lose a disk!!!!
--Rubber tee pads are old and worn, easy to lose footing and possibly sustaining an injury.
--Not enough benches or places to sit, you will get tired.
--The rough is really rough and EASY to lose a disc.
Other Thoughts: I am waivering on the score. This course has potential to be a 4.5 star course with improvements and a few changes on some of the holes. Cement tee pads and better signs with more benches. I could make it a 4.5 but felt improvements should be implemented. Out of the 2 courses between original and North, I like original better because of the challenge and slightly better holes. Both these courses are fun and excellent, and both have some epic holes.

Pros: This course is mainly a combination of right-sized holes (300'-450') in hilly, grassy meadows, and shorter-to-average length forest holes. Some of the meadow holes feature steep hills (up and down), all with neatly mowed fairways that are fun to place drives onto. The best of them have unique, crop-circle shaped patterns at the 250-300 range to approach from. Forest holes are flatter and very tightly wooded, and are similar to some of the forest holes at Branstrom Park in Fremont. Rubber tee pads on all holes (at least it's not grass). Holes 3, 4, 12 and 18 (a sledding hill) are signature meadow holes, with terrific tee shots that are mostly wide open but have a few obstacles to keep it interesting. Good navigation for the most part, though Hole 6 is a long walk from Hole 5. Signs at most tees, though a couple are missing. Decent baskets throughout that are better than the baskets on the Original course.
Cons: Some of the rubber tee pads are cracked/damaged and are somewhat slippery at times (in 2011, they were apparent;ly pulled altogether). The forest holes are challenging but not necessarily fun, with lots of bugs and really rough areas. Tall grass bordering fairways of the meadow holes is easy to lose discs in, but as mentioned by Mashnut, do not increase challenge appropriately. Almost twisted an ankle looking for a disc by stepping in a mole hole in the right side rough of Hole 1.
Other Thoughts: Secluded with few golfers (a relief from Oshtemo), but no alcohol allowed in park (didn't stop me). A solid 3.5 course that is best in fall, and could make 4.0 or even 4.5 with cement pads and some work on the forest holes. Course retains its appeal after repeated rounds, with significantly more epic holes than nearly any course in the area, and in some cases, better than the Original course. With two great parks next to each other that are better than any course near bigger/busier areas like Lansing or Grand Rapids, make the time to check out Three Rivers disc golf.

Pros: Very nice chainstar baskets, nice signage although the second hole was confusing to find...we actually played hole 15 instead (wasn't paying attention to the sign) walked around entire course and finally found 3 and 2....nice wooded shots and open bomb shots, becareful of the rough!!!
Cons: The rough would be rough in the spring/greener seasons...thorns are horrible on the back 9 so keep it on the fairway or else!!!
Other Thoughts: All-in-all the 2 courses offered here at broadway are well worth the trip, my friends and I traveled about a hour and it was very fun!

Pros: Nine wooded/technical holes, nine open longer holes-good variety. Fairways generally wider than the original course. Many birdie chances, also many tough threes. Good signage.
Cons: Wooded holes need to be cleaned up.
Other Thoughts: With 36 holes, Three Rivers is a disc destination!
