new renovations- great course now
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -new cement teepads are long, level, and grippy. new baskets standout and catch well
-temporary crude maps on each teepost give distance and direction of fairway and basket (it seems like new, better maps are coming soon)
-lots of elevation change. just about every hole has some degree, many holes have a large change up or down. Hole 18 finishes on an open "top-of-the-world" teeshot
-several holes offer exciting ace runs. several baskets are risk/reward decisions sitting on hills
-great use of trees lining fairways and guarding baskets
-navigation is easy. almost impossible to get turned around.
-I am assuming this course got a total facelift and remodeling since the last reviewers have played, and from what I gather the improvements have been HUGE!
Cons: -hard to find the first tee. it is near a different entrance around the back of the property. You either walk far to the first tee from your car to start, or far from the 18th to car to finish
-I don't remember any true driver holes. This course rewards accuracy over distance for sure (not necessarily a con, but I like a few chances to "let it rip")
-it is on church property. not a con in itself but I imagine during church functions this course could be unplayable.
Other Thoughts: I stopped to play here as just another course to play on a road trip, and was blown away. Its rating will suffer because of the abundance of great courses in the area, but it too is a great course. simply not on the level of Flip, Ludingtons, Leviathan

-very easy to navigate and there is a mailbox near the first tee with scorecards that have a map on them.
-nice baskets. the yellow band at the top makes them easy to see.
-very good variety for 9 holes. you throw uphill, downhill left and right.
-elevation changes on pretty much every hole.
-very good "fun factor"
-tee pads are dirt/sand. some of them are very bad. 6, 8 and 9 come to mind. hole 9 is a sweet downhill shot but the angle of the tee pad makes it nearly impossible to get a good run up.
-when I played, the grass reallllllly needed to be mowed.
-it is not challenging. I would guess that the longest holes are around 250'... which brings me to...
-distances are not marked. I would appreciate knowing the distance of the hole, but it isn't a huge con really.
-I didn't notice any trash cans on the course.
-very fun course with a lot of birdie/ace opportunities. I would like to play the whole course with just a putter.
-my favorite hole was 9. it is the longest hole there and very downhill.

Great Place Before Flip
Pros: Once you find the first hole this place is pretty easy to direct around. Most holes end where the next one starts or have a path there.
Baskets- They are brand new baskets all cemented into the ground.
They have a good amount of shots for a nine hole course. For being pretty short they still have a good amount of challenge here.
Cons: The tee pads are dirt/sand, hole 6 and 9 are pretty hard to drive on with a run up.
9 Holes, would like to have more.
Hole 7 has a large hole next to it, if you are playing glow disc here this would defiantly be a problem.
Other Thoughts: First Hole is in the bottom of the parking lot behind the ""Barnish looking this"
The course flows together pretty good, and it's easy to get a 30 minute warm up round before flip.
I am guessing there is no drinking here as it's on a church.
this would also be a nice place to play glow while camping at flip.

Aesthetic- Chuch property is decent but shares some territory with probable field for church functions. I can see this being an "issue" at some point.
Routing/Nav-not an issue once at the first tee. Course flows nicely from pin to tee.
Challenge- Many blind holes that require scouting prior to throwing. VERY short course that doesn't provide much challenge as far as distance driving.
Baskets-brand new discatchers with bright yellow charity stripes. helps visibility on blind holes.
Tees- tees are natural and are VERY uneven and even dangerous (see #6 and #8) which are angled downhill and rutty, providing many tripping hazards.
Teesigns-while, at least they have them, they just list a tee number but no distance or anything else of use.
Challenge and risk v reward- not really any to speak of.
Only 9- rumor is that there will be 9 more holes eventually.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course to warm up to Flip City without warming up AT flip city. we hit it on the way to leagues and had a good time!
