Pros: Great signs for every pad indicating hole number. Weaves next to a campsite for those interested in camping. Lots of par chances even for beginners. I consider myself a middle of the road player and I had 4 birdies. I played in the early spring so there was not much thick brush, but it looks like it could get thick in the middle of the year. Not a lot of elevation makes for really easy walking. I don't remember any stumps or piles of branches for it being a new course. Nice view of lake/river along 9 and 10.
Cons: The parking for the course was not marked. Park next to the brown building I posted a picture of. No real variety on this course. I consider it a chip and putt course. It's short enough you can peg a tree and still save par on most holes at least in the spring. No elevation or openess to really stretch a drive. No trash cans as of May 1st. As you can see from pictures a lot of holes looked the same. The first few tee pads look like they laid 2 old boat ramp pads down.
Other Thoughts: I think this is a good course for young families who want to just get a taste for disc golf while they are camping. I would play it again if I lived close, but it's just not worth much of a drive. If you want to practice tossing some midrange discs in between some small gaps, this is the course for you.

 Technical challenge

Pros: Nice new baskets, big tees, lots of good signage throughout. Clean and well manicured 'wooded' forest course. Tight and technical at times, but not ridiculously so (the tighter the fairway, usually the shorter the hole). Good mix of righty and lefty holes, and plenty of nice scenery (several holes hug the lake). Deceivingly easy looking course on the first few holes, but gets gradually more challenging as the course progresses.
Cons: Might be a little too technical for some, and it remains to be seen how difficult it becomes as the trees fill in in the summer time. Would like to have seen more elevation put into play, but overall a very nice effort by whoever designed and installed this course.
Other Thoughts: About a 40 minute drive from the Grand Rapids area, and nearby Fremont would make a nice 'two course' meal.

Pros: Brand new course. Hole 1, 2, and 3 are wide open shots with a clear path. Cool views of the river.
Cons: Crazy paths most holes reward lucky shots over skilled throws. Hole 18 is a crazy S shaped shot that is impossible.
Other Thoughts: Remove some of the trees in that are in the way. Newyago could be a really fun place to play
