I know Ella Sharp Park in Jackson just started cutting in the new course that will be there. I know a few of the guys involved with design. Sounds like it could be good!

Unhappy Sad News...

Looks like Bonnie Brook was laid to rest today.

Course Conditions as of 1/4/2016:
Quote:
Closed. Thank you for everything and for all of your support. (Last updated by TedS36486)
Doesn't seem like it's just closed for the winter. Nothing on DG Scene about it, nor on Facebook. I have a feeling Ted and the property owner came to some sort of impasse, whatever it might have been.

All the blood, sweat, tears (not to mention money) Lydia, he, and Brett put into that place. I played about 20 rounds there this year, and noticed tangible improvements literally every round. They were always tweaking, clearing, fixing, really pouring heart and soul into the course. I truly feel for them.

I’m apprehensive to ask what the deal is… don’t wanna pour salt in the wound.

I'll hold a small glimmer of hope they'll reopen in spring, but...
Glad I was able to log so many rounds while it was still active.

Fondest memory: playing with my son, caught up to a group of five who offered to let us play through on 17... aced it with everyone watching.

Also hit a putt from this lie to card a 3 from #12's long tee (480'):

I had heard whispers mid year that they may not have a chance to renew their lease but hoped they were just rumors. Bonnie was a great course. I am going to keep my fingers crossed that some kind of break through happens and they stick around!

This is too heartbreaking for me to even consider. I threw up a post on DGS to see if I can get a response. Losing Belle Isle and Bonnie would be tragic. The economic viability of running and maintaining a course is slight, they've done a wonderful job.

Seconding all those thoughts. From two Detroit courses to zero in less than a year would be awful, especially with all the untold hours of hard work put into them.

Default Rush creek park

georgetown township park is in the ground. 9 holes short couseno tee signs like their other course at rosewood. first three holes are too close together. after that it spaces out better.
pitch and putt course or putter only course. park is located off 48th avenue turn right on first street past port sheldon going north. turn right then left then right park is straight ahead. first tee is right side of tennis court.

apparently, the current course in Greenville (Alan Davis) is going to be removed and the baskets moved to tower park next year. The current park has 9 baskets to 9 will be added to make an 18.
Kind of excited but kind of sad to see Davis go... it was an interesting little park
