Pros: it does have a challenge to it. very nice scenery and the river is swim-able. other than that nothing much to say. you can full drive on almost every hole but it is considered the best in the area.
i found it easy to lose a disc here
Cons: -tee pad are tiny
-there aren't signs that tell you where the basket is, it tells you the hole number and the par on orange rocks (ghetto huh?).
-the first cage is on the edge of a hill so if you miss the putt it will roll 100 feet away.
-if you lose a disc then the next time you go there there will be a kid there trying to sell it back to you.
Other Thoughts: not the best
more cons than pros im afraid

 We'll be back

Pros: From what we saw of this course, it looks like a good place to return to and revisit. We didn't get a chance to play any of the water holes, but what we did play was varied and interestingly laid out. Looking forward to a return visit and will update the review to reflect that.
Cons: There is a bike path that we had to shoot over on the 6th hole which seemed kind of dangerous, especially since part of it was blocked by trees and you couldn't see if someone were coming.
Other Thoughts: Disclaimer: We only had time to play the first 6 holes on this course due to time constraints and weather. Will be back to Utica again to give this course another try in the future.

Pros: Excellant for driving practice. Always kept the next shot challenging .
Awesome holes that the river plays through.
Cons: When it's crowded the pople can defenmiatly get in the way if not paying attention.If you lose control of your disc your more then likely gonna go swimming for it.
Other Thoughts: Nice upkeep , all the passerby's are friendly and famialiar with whats going on. If it's a hot day you can cool off in the river at a few different holes.

 Wear your boots and a swimsuit

Pros: Variety of holes and a good 24 hole layout. Some hard water shots with real risky lies.
Well established course, with plenty of locals and various styles of play. Interesting place to throw, and meet people. Enjoy a BBQ while your there.
Cons: They've been working hard on this course for many years, but it still needs some solid design work. Tees are getting old, and sometimes city maintenance forgets to visit the park. Mosquito heaven in the early summer.
Other Thoughts: Unless it's been dry and hot for alt least a week, expect some mud and swamp; wear your boots. Also, plan to swim on a hot day; but not too long, its not the cleanest river in the Detroit area.
This was my first home course back in 1997. Fell in love with it, then they changed it. And added a bike path through the middle, which gets real busy. Careful, most of these travelers though dont care about you or what your doing out there. They may move, but most likely they prefer if you throw over their head.
