Updated by AirAce
Leaves have been blown off all fairways (11/14/23). Watch out rough can be piled deep.

Challenging layout, playing through woods and fields with a mix of narrow and wide open fairways. Several massive holes. The rough is rough in the summer months, spotter suggested when playing from the long tees. Concrete tees for long (black) and mid (white) tees. Natural tees for short (red) tees. Very well marked, new signs at each tee, and direction signs to next hole where needed.

Park Entrance Fee: $6 a day (per car) for Washtenaw Co residents. $10 a day (per car) for out of county residents. Same daily pass works for Rolling Hills.

Disc Golf Fee: $2 a day--$30 a year to play
