Pros:
Aesthetic-- plays through a section of the festival grounds. Area seems to be DG exclusive with the exception of the woods which have some trails. I highly doubt that during non-festival times the property is very busy.

Tees-- I'm not usually a big fan of carpet, but these were good for what they were. nice and level and without ruts. They served the purpose nicely.

Teesigns-- Awesome. Hole number, diagram and footage really helped on this course.

Routing and navigation-- worn grass trails helped navigation here a ton. Most tees were visible from the preceding holes basket.

Variety-- a TON of variety here. The available land was used extremely well. A little something for every one here. The longest hole is 435'. The woods holes were completely different from the meadow holes

Trees-- The trees were fairly well utilized. I don't believe many trees were removed to build this course. I didn't see any stumps on the fairways on the meadow holes. There may have been some in the woods but it's hard to tell.

Baskets-- looked brand new, orange bands really helped visibility. Very Grippy.

Challenge-- the challenge of this course lies in the topography and the tightness of the woods holes. Pretty hard to lose a disc here.
Cons:
Amenities-- Course could certainly use more benches. I would have liked to sit and rest a few more times during this course but there really wasn't anywhere to sit. Also, a few more garbage cans would have been helpful.

Course map-- would have been nice to have a map on the kiosk but this is really a minor problem.

Hole #19-- This course should/could have ended at #18. #19 is a bit of a throwaway hole. #18 is the signature hole here and #19 just feels like a let-down after the awesomeness that is #18.
Other Thoughts:
Very impressed with this course. Very Very remote course that I'm sure is not played very often. The other course in Harbor Springs is a chuckers dream and this challenging course I'm sure is underappreciated.
