"Beast" is considered the "intermediate" level course of the three on site. Compared to Beauty, it provides longer holes that are more open to the prevailing Lake Michigan winds. Like the other courses on site, Beast has 24 holes with a single tee and pin position. Beast shares most baskets with Goliath - make sure to look ahead on blind holes before throwing. Beast is marked by the blue tee sign posts and red baskets in the park.

Course is playable all year, but main entrance to the park is locked from Labor Day thru Memorial Day. See directions below.

$1/day, or $50 for a season pass that covers Beauty, Beast, Goliath, Leviathan, and The Edge.
