Here are the responses to that post, so far.

This is nonsense. I have played here numerous times, know the owner and have many friends in the area. You are paranoid and delusional, I suggest you stop using the MMJ altogether. This is a terrific private course, wonderful owner and a do not miss if in this area.

This place is in the middle of nowhere Michigan. People in the bushes? Following you? That's some good stuff you're smoking

I have never experienced this... Nothing but great times at this course


I have also email Pete Crist to have the post removed.

The OP's name is Emit Fitsume

Sounds fake and he has no active profile on DGS. Dude is obviously, either trippin' or has some ax to grind. I am not a fan of trashing any private course owner. Their land, their rules. Also not a fan of trashing private course owners...the only result is the owner tiring of the stupidity and shutting the course down. Wildman is a good guy, simple does not deserve the BS.

Played both Hammond Hill and Fallasburg this past week, both are looking excellent. Since my last time playing either course.
Fallasburg:
Some of the inconsequential rough cleared out, makes the holes a bit more friendly but still requires the same challenging shot shapes as always.
Arrows on each basket pointing towards the next tee pad and signs pointing out the paths to the alternate 6 holes
Gongs/Chimes added on the blind holes to inform next card that you are clear

Hammond:
- 3d printed arrows on each basket pointing towards the next tee, smaller and less obvious than the white painted signs at - Fallasburg but still helpful if you need them.
- Teepad maintainance, dirt filled around and leveled off for those who need a Conrad style runup
- Stump removal, a crew has been hard at work removing the most offensive stumps from fairways by hand all summer, and recently rented a stump grinder to fully clear all the stumps off the entire back 9.

A couple of the best strolls through the woods throwing discs in the Grand Rapids area are looking as good as I've ever seen them just in time for the colors to change.

I was hoping to see what Wild had to say but Facebook is down. I do see he took down Wild Haven's page on DGS, so that's that.

Sigh.....I hope he reconsiders that decision. Dbags are gonna be dbags, regardless of the social media platform. I had sent a message to DGS mods to remove the post, no response yet. Many of us do not use facebook. I don't even have a good way to get an address or get ahold of Wild now. If you have a chance to chat with him, after he cools off, I hope you can pass along mine and many other disappointment, at seeing the course removed from DGS. There are TONS of great golfers that appreciate and enjoy private courses. I hope those very few dbags don't get to ruin it for everyone.....then they win.

That would be a major bummer for me. That's a course I wanted to play, didn't have time for, but planned on for my next trip. It's strange to me that there's SO many private courses listed on Udisc that aren't on here. It should be the opposite. But, I'm out of touch I suppose.

Udisc feels a little more wild, wild west vs DGCR. For me, only the owner of the Private course should be allowed to add it to the directory. If I play an unlisted private course I just note in my Social profile and keep count of unlisted ones that way. (9 unlisted courses for me). I would hate to add one and have random people show up to somebody's yard to play.

I think this course was designed by Jim Schultz who is the fella that designed the original Leviathan - among many other courses like SHARA. Man this is exciting for disc golf in Southwest Michigan!!!
