nice city course
Pros: easy to play. good signage. fun open shots but treees are always a factor. it seems plastic is attracted to trees
Cons: if course was busy you will have to be on the look out for flying plastic object.
Other Thoughts: thank you kentwood and all the hole sponsers for making this course

Pros: Nice winding layout, Cement pads, the course has highly visible signage, which is very helpful because some of the holes would be hard to find otherwise. The course layout allows players an opportunity to throw a variety of shots throughout.
Cons: There are a lot of leaves on the ground, and if you you don't pay close attention you can easily lose a disc. Trees can be a struggle, though the course was no doubt designed to be technical it can seem a little unnecessary. Several of the cement tees are getting pretty worn out (specifically #2 and #17).
Other Thoughts: The course is good for both beginners and those who want to work on control through obstacles. The course is not very long although their is some variety in the length of holes.

Play in the leaves!
Pros: Chance of finding a disc in the leaves is high. Keep your eyes peeled!
Cons: Chance of losing a disc in the leaves is high. Keep your eyes peeled!
Other Thoughts: Fun course, once you know the layout. Best to triangulate your drive's resting spot with a tree or landmark that is directly beyond the line of the tee and your disc. No water hazards, but beware the children on hole 18!

Woods and Leaves
Pros: Decent signs.
Cement tees (albiet very small and in need of upgrading).
Technical course that will challenge your short and long accuracy.
Very nice locals who played with us and showed us the layout.
Fun and challenging, I would recommend this course just for the above average technical aspects required to play it. If your a local at this course you could probably play Coldbrook Park in Kalamazoo really well.
Cons: DUMB MANDO SIGNS, don't like em, change the design of the course if you have to, but for me it takes something away from the experience.
Tee pads are a little short.
Lots and Lots of leaves, so it can be easy to lose your disc!
THE biggest con is course layout, I had trouble locating one hole after another, and if I wasn't with someone who knew the course I would have gotten frustrated by this course!
Did I mention lots and lots of leaves?
Some holes are close to walking paths so be careful of unsuspecting people.
Be careful of disc golfers some holes are close to each other and you could hit someone!
Some of the holes had a poor layout and you had to walk back the hole you shoot to play the next hole.
Other Thoughts: Had a good time playing this course. There are just a few things that stopped this course from getting a better rating. Was a little busy but not too bad.
Found a brand new star disc! (Sweet)
Get rid of mando signs and rearrange some of the holes, The course is small but with a little work an improved layout is possible. Pretty area and a nice scenic park.

Pros: Good layout, cement pads, very technical at some holes due to trees (3, 7, 9, 11 and 15 come to mind). A few good birdie opportunities flanked by vexing tech holes. Well marked and easy to navigate. Rewarding when played well.
Cons: Those damn trees. Watch the paved path (out of bounds) for joggers or kids on bikes. Leaves will hide discs, but only late in the season. throw bright colors.
Other Thoughts: Bring your best drive, your first stroke will make or break you on a lot of these holes. Mind the mandos.

Woodsy and challenging
Pros: Fantastic layout for such a small place. Decently marked, concrete tees. Control is essential, some tight holes with a deep, fast stream in a woodsy environment. Moderate elevation differences used nicely.
Cons: Lots of leaves. Hole 18 goes around a playground, but that is part of the challenge.

Thwack, a sound youll hear constantly
Pros: I was impressed by how well the limited space was used, there was a good mixture of hole types
Cons: my only real gripe was that the tee pads seemed really short. Granted i am 6'8" with long legs, so take that as you will
Other Thoughts: i played when the course was empty, and the course goes right along a basebal field and a couple of playgrounds. If you arent careful and the park is crowded you could easily hurt someone, so watch out

Yay for Trees
Pros: -Nice tee's all cement
-All types of shots, tights, anhyzers, hyzers, short and long. This place has mostly all you need.
-Nice baskets (besides one, being a mis matched as someone must of stolen or broke the other one)
Cons: -Leaves are everywhere. You can and will lose discs if you don't watch sometimes.
-Hole ten to eleven is weird along with 14 to 15.
-Kids, there are a lot of kids running around depending on the time, and people in general.
Other Thoughts: In my mind, I think this is one of the best in city courses in grand rapids, It's quick and it gives you a taste of everything. Although sometimes the people in the area can be a hassle its doesn't ruin it. It has some flaws, but I think it has the most to offer of all the Inner City Courses

Pros: shaded with decent length holes.
Cons: the path from one tee to the next is a little difficult to follow. Would be nice if the numbers on the holes pointed towards the tee box.

Playing Pinball with the Trees
Pros: Nice layout among a lot of picturesque tall old trees. Limited space available, so none of the holes are particularly long, but makes use of some slight elevation changes, and there is a good mix of lefty and righty holes, including a few mandos to keep things interesting. Well marked, easy to navigate.
Cons: frequent pedestrian traffic can be a problem on some of the holes. Park can be sometimes kind of trashy, and sadly it appears that frequently disc golfers are to blame.
