Aesthetic-- plays through the former driving range of a large golf course at the northern most tip of Michigan. the old yardage signs are still there, most prevalently on Hole 1. Mountain bike "track" is part of hole 9 and is visible from the course. throw carefully.
Baskets-- all present but could certainly be more visible on this course. heavy woods on a few holes make is very difficult to see your target.
Signage-- reasable. have hole number, distance and a little map of the hole. Distances seem mostly accurate.
Routing and nav-- easy, next tee signs make this course enjoyable and easy to follow.
Teepads-- rough rough rough. rocks, roots, ruts and a bunch of other negatives... some of the worst tee areas I've ever seen.
Misleading fairways-- some places (2 and 3 specifically) it is VERY difficult to know where you are throwing to. the fairways are quite difficult to distinguish from other clearing like areas... I deducted a full disc for this. I found it quite annoying... In the same vane, there are very few holes with ACTUAL fairways... 7, 8, 9 had actual fairways, the others were quite shaky.
Design-- the design of several holes doesn't flow with the topography of the land the course is on... the natural flow fairway is NOT the fairway. the short holes are a whole lot short but they are quick plays for sure.
Other Thoughts: overall, it's kind of what I expected. not great, not horrible. very meh... but hey, it's the northern most course in Michigan!!

Pros: Scenery is beautiful, holes are layed out well, totally secluded and underplayed. Elevation changes and diverse hole shapes and lengths. Very natural course with minimal landscape changes.
Cons: Only 9 holes in such a beautiful setting. Dirt tees which do not bother me personally but will bother a lot of more experienced players.
Other Thoughts: This course is in an absolutely stunning area. With a little work this could be the nicest course I have played. The natural setting and landscaping looks nice but hinders play a little. It really left me wanting another 9 holes through the rolling hills. Great course overall.

everything but water
Pros: good mix of open and wooded fairways
holes going left and right
course loops in a circle so easy to play18 or seemingly endless rounds
fair ways and clean easy to find discs
rough/woods are forgiving on finding discs
course appears to be built with minimal impact on environment
baskets are chainstars
2s are given for good throws 4-5s for bad throws
beginner and experienced friendly
hole vary form 305ft down to 165ft
Cons: dirt pads? some think its bad but others like dirt
only 9 holes
305ft is longest hole. this is a personal thing, i love long courses
i dont live near it
Other Thoughts: this is the best nine hole i have ever played
location is perfect right outside downtown copper harbor. this area is one of the most scenic places in the US. mountain biking kayaking and much more in the area. you can lodge at the course.
i hope this course stays. it makes my weekend trips to the Keweenaw peninsula perfect.
