Pros: Bay Court is an excellent 9-hole course geared towards beginners, families, and casual players. The park itself is really clean and located in a nice suburb of Detroit. The land the course plays on has mowed grassy fairways on gently rolling hills dotted with mature trees- perfect for entry level disc golf. It is mostly open to help people learn to throw, but has just enough obstacles, elevation and well-placed baskets to make it interesting. There are a few holes on this course that are definitely better than average.

It only has 9 holes so you can play it quick, but it does have 2 sets of tees. This is the best case scenario for the amount land available. Tee pads and signs were nice. Navigation is a breeze. The baskets were in decent enough shape and are easy to see. There is very little chance to lose discs here, which is also a bonus for beginners.
Cons: A course like this will have the usual cons of being crowded, holes close together, and inexperienced players throwing into you. This is not the type of course you would want to play all the time once your skill reaches a certain level.

As far as course design goes, I felt the first half was much stronger and more fun than the 2nd half. The pro tee locations on 7,8,9 do make them tougher, but the baskets are just out in the open field, unlike the first several holes that had baskets protected by trees and elevation. I am not saying those holes should be excluded, I just think it would have been better to have those in the middle and not at the end.
Other Thoughts: To sum up, this is one of the nicer 9-hole beginner level courses I have played. This area is lucky to have it, and I am sure many people have and will learn about the game of disc golf on these grounds. Bay Court is an excellent course for its perfect for its purpose!

Pros: Clean park. Very little schule. Difficult to lose a disc. Easy to navigate. Two sets of tees. Still a decent challenge/practice course for advanced players.

Good tee pads and baskets.

There's good variety of shot shapes for just nine holes. A solid white level challenge with enough variety in options to give more advanced players a bit of a workout.
Cons: Crowded at times.
Other Thoughts: This course doubles as a a gentle introduction to the game for beginners and a place for better players to continue to work on their games.

Rumors circulate from time to time that this course will be pulled due to vandalism. If you're out there, please do what you can to keep the property picked up and gently encourage the kids to respect the property.

Remember: Don't be a dirty disc golfer. If you pack it in, pack it out!

Pros:
--There's very good course maintenance here, its a small park and almost every time I'm here I see the grounds keepers driving around on a golfcart doing upkeep. Theres no need for a map here because you cant really get lost, good signs on am tees. No signs on pro tees though. It has dual concrete tee pads on every hole too.
Cons:
--Moderatly hilly fields with woods in play on 2 or 3 holes but theres not too much variety, mainly open throws that allow you to drive without too many hazards.

--It can get pretty busy for being a 9 hole course, some days you can get held up on every hole.

--{9 Holes}
Other Thoughts:
--Bay Court is a nice park with a playground, beach, and DG course, overall the course itself is just average.

--On hole #2 you can throw your disc in the road over the fence if your not careful.
