Destroying the school forest in order to build a new school sounds like just the kind of terrible idea that everyone in that town would love. Getting rid of those terrible disc golfers is probably on the top 10 list of things to do. That sucks, but at least its not the only course in the area... The only way to save it is to somehow convince tad reed that disc golf photography is the next big thing...

Default New course barely a mile north of Toledo

Mark Kruse has been working on a new 18 hole course in Whiteford Stoneco Community Park.


Quote:
The tee pads and baskets are all in place, and posts for directional signs were recently installed.

“Probably by the end of next summer, we’ll have it all done,” said Whiteford Township Supervisor Walter Ruhl. “We’re getting really close.”
Sounds like it's basically ready to play. Another Toledo area course... in Michigan.

Maybe Ejvogie or ChrisWoj can give us the scoop?

Apparently all the baskets are in at the Emac designed North Bluff DGC in Gladstone and the course is playable. No signs yet, but I got an email this morning to all hole sponsors asking for last minute graphics ASAP before the proofs get sent out. An updated course map and hole information were very briefly posted on FB before they were immediately taken down, probably to discourage play as it is city property and the club doesn't have the authority to stop people from playing the course before it's complete. Apparently there is a new hole 11 and 20 and two holes were removed from the ski hill, not sure which ones. The deleted post went on to say that some fairways are very rough and filled with sticks, with broken glass between 10 and 11 and a lot of stinging nettles off the fairways. Still complete silence from the club except for the one rogue member, and still stifling all comments and debate.

Playable. Watch your discs, tons of unwaded waist high weeds. If you're concerned about losing plastic and don't like inevitably walking through the waist high stuff - unplayable. But the fairways are widening by the month with alternate work service people out there doing community time for the parks. It'll be super playable when the garbage dies back into January and through March. Hopefully all mowing is kept up and it rolls from there as our area's best layout.

It is a par 55 with room to expand to par 60 when the current township parks people retire out in five or so years and we can get some fresh ears open to expansion. Not a spectacular course but it is and even with the par 4s will remain a solid blue level course. The best we've got.

McLouth Park in Trenton, MI is in and open for play, https://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=10082. I haven't played it yet, but plan to on Thursday. Looking at pics it looks flat, mostly open, and looooong. Total length is 8726ft for 18 holes!

The new North Bluff DGC in Gladstone. 23 holes are playable, I'm assuming that the four on the ski hill probably won't go in until spring.

The course is on Udisc now. I created a map of 18 longs on there today, which got approved, and I’ll do 18 shorts, 18 short/long and 18long/short this week. The distances on the map should be pretty close but are probably off a little.

This seems to be a bit premature. Per a posting on DGS as of two days ago.......

"Announcement: after some voiced concerns with the safety of pedestrians at a city council meeting we need to ask that the course goes in-played until we get proper safety signage posted throughout the park. This won’t take more than a couple days. For now, the course is back “under construction”. Stay tuned."
