Aesthetic-- plays through a large multi-use park in rural "thumb" michigan. Course plays near multiple amenities.
Bakets-- all there. chainstars in good repair. no condition issues. bright orange neck bands on all for added visibility.
Teesigns- #6 and #9 missing? not sure. the ones that were there were good, not great. the hole #, distance and par were listed and where a diagram should have been was a large sponsors ad.
Variety-- nice in this department. starts out with a 400+, then a 300+, then a 400+. the woods are tighter and shorter as they should be.
Routing and navigation, pretty easy actually. teepads are marked with signs. not really a worry where to tee from.
Teepads-- Grass/mud/dirt. not terrible or rutted out though.
Challenge factor-- the biggest challenge I had was the wind. other than that the excitement/challenge factor were pretty low here.
Hole 8a/b?--not sure where the secondary teepad is on this hole but it's only 10' shorter than the other. Not really sure it's necessary.
Hole 9-- no sign. there was a large "9" painted on the tree next to #8's basket so I was assuming this was a local #9 or Winter #9. there was no teesign on the sledding hill so I'm not sure where #9 Tee is.
Danger-- #3 plays VERY near a playground and pavillion. #8 and #9 play over a sand volleyball court and #2 plays near a hammer/discus/shot put throw circle. the potential danger zones are many here.
This course was far better than Caro but still pretty much a dud.
Finally something in the area

Pros: Finally a course in the area, nothing else around.
Mix of open and wooded holes.
Wooded holes are in a nice area.
Cons: - Better direction needed from hole to hole. I just wandered around aimlessy until I found a hole to play.
- Dirt T pads with small stumps mixed in.
- T pad location not clear. I was hard to figure out where the T pad really was.
- no practice basket.
Other Thoughts: The setting has potential, especially the wooded holes. It was nice to see an attempt to add a course in this remote, non-disc golf area. With some work, better Ts, signage and course trafic this would be worth visiting again. I happened to be in the area as I my parents still live in the area.
