Other Thoughts: This a pretty good lengthy course that uses the landscape with all it's valleys and hills to the best of it's abilities. Very natural feel with downed trees and paths that also scream mountain biking. This could be a great course but there are two major flaws that keep it at a 3
1) BAD TEE PADS. Yes, the course does have tee pads but they are a non-texture rubber tee pad that collects northern Michigan sand like crazy. This makes for some of the slipperiest pads I have ever played on. Once you slip that is all that is on your mind for the rest of the round. AND to make it worse some pads have an above ground 4x4 piece of wood as a fault line (you can see these in the photos). Hit my toes on this many times. This is begging for someone to sprain an ankle.
2) TRASH. There are no trash cans anywhere and some of the holes just have huge piles of trash collected next to them. Very disgusting for a course that screams nature.
Playing wise we had a good time here. Definitely not a destination course, BUT paired up with Traverse City's Hickory to the east (just down highway 72) this course makes a for a good day of disc golf.
