Thanks for the info! I'm going to have to keep up with their progress... I'm looking forward to playing them. Good to see a few courses coming to St. Clair county.

Todd Wiley 05-10-2012 01:40 PM

Lumberjack Meadows DGC in Alpena, MI now has Short Tees (Natural Pads marked with red bricks) for all 18 holes to go along with the Pro Tees (Concrete Pads)

the_pwnerator 05-10-2012 10:42 PM

Talked with Taymouth Twp. Park owner today...9 more holes should be in by the end of June! That'll bring 18 holes five minutes from my house!

CregoryJames 05-14-2012 10:28 AM

I can't wait for Taymouth! Once it gets updated it will be my favored course over Memorial Park in Frankenmuth, which recently was updated with concrete pads. Taymouth has much potential, excited to see how they are changing the layout! Keep us posted.

donnyv 05-18-2012 10:05 AM

Stony Creek will have their grand-opening for the new holes and layout tomorrow 5/19.

btw the Ira Twp course is almost done.

sgamerp 05-18-2012 10:07 AM

Stony is going to be quite a bit different now. We played on Wednesday and it's pretty nice. They changed a lot including ripping out a couple holes in the back swamp area. I took a pic of the new layout poster that they had. 1 is new, 2 is the old 24, 3 is the old 1, etc

Turbine Pines had a lot of wind damage this winter. The baskets for the front nine are in and playable, but repairs continue on the back nine.

Gonnagal 05-23-2012 06:16 AM

Beverly Hills, Mi is getting a course installed. It's in the clearing phase right now.

rshrevo 05-23-2012 06:39 AM

Ross Park in Norton Shores is undergoing a redesign of the 9 holes that are there. they have currently moved the old posts to the new layout. They will be eventually removing the posts and putting in baskets this year. there are a few more improvements scheduled from what i was told by the Norton Shores Parks Department.

SAxDrc 05-25-2012 08:47 PM

I've heard rumors that 18 holes will be added to Deerfield Park in Mount Pleasant. That would be awesome. If the additional 18 are anything like the original I'd rate it better than Flip City.

AikoAdam 05-30-2012 03:53 AM

MCDGO just got final approval to install a 24 hole course with 2 sets of tees at West Shore Community College. It looks to be a monster course.

Todd Wiley 06-01-2012 11:12 AM

Looking for feedback on the course layout for Clear Lake State Park in Atlanta, MI HERE

My father-in-law knows a guy who owns a little par 3 bolf course somewhere in Lenawee County...he mentioned disc golf to this guy, who sounded like he might be receptive to getting some baskets in. I'll hopefully get to have a look at the land and/or talk to the landowner over July 4th vacation when I'm back in Adrian!

Violets caddy 06-04-2012 05:58 PM

Played dubs yesterday with some of the grand rapids guys and they said bertha Brock is shaping up to be a killer course.
Joe says "that's a man's course right there" and coming from a Kowalski that says a lot.

No official opening date yet, though it sounds like its getting close :D
Definitely on my must play list for the summer.

some of the guys I play leagues with are working on it. They have 10 holes ready(without baskets).

esdubya 06-08-2012 03:40 PM

Independence Lake County Park has just opened an additional brand new 6 holes. They were down to 14 (ongoing construction) but now are back up to 20 total holes of wonderful golf. Eventually it will be 24 holes when the construction is finished.

Damn, I thought you said Leelanau County. I was going to say how cool it would be to have a course at Veronica Valley!!

Oh well....

I'm assuming you already play Cass, Founders, Stony Creek, Lola and the one in Canton?

WestTex 06-25-2012 08:52 AM

Livonia would be awesome. I am sure there are lots of us that will be happy to help with whatever is needed.

It's going to be a long drawn out process but so worth the wait. I'll start a thread when it gets closer to round up the volunteers and to organize a league.

Great to hear of a new course in Livonia, nice work.. but..

Please please please get an experienced designer to help you out. There are many in the area that will offer some expertise, myself included.

played a 9 holer in Dorr Michigan at the Salem Twp Hall, according to the dgcr page, it's a 2012 course.

Ira Twp course should be open by the weekend.

That's some great news! I'll actually be out that way this weekend, along with a few of my discin' friends. If it does in fact open, we will have to stop by and throw a round or two!

-Independence Green DGC- Farmington Hills {9/18 Holes}

In early proposal phase.

Location: Grand River and Halsted. Google map: http://bit.ly/NFxuL7

Old ball golf course, 9 baskets being proposed with shared tees. Nice elevation with some very long downhill ace-able par 3's. Clean and absolutely gorgeous. Nice mix of mostly open and somewhat wooded holes, as well as straight, hyzer, anny.

Founders league might want to switch / rotate to this location.

I'll keep everyone posted.

Also, does anyone have a good / cheap / (free??) concrete contact? The initial proposal is only to concrete the baskets. Tee pads will most likely be just painted 4x4 "tee lines" at first.

This is great news. We just setup a safari course here last weekend and it was amazing. We were saying how a permanent course would go great there. The property is owned by an apartment complex so not quite sure how it works. On a positive note it has some elevation and water holes as well as benches and landscaped well.
