Fitzgearld Park in Grand Ledge redesign is in the ground. Hole 1 has not changed. Course plays over a much larger area of the park with many more wooded holes and a few par 4's. There is a long, but very scenic walk between 12 and 13.

The fairways on the newly carved holes in the woods need a lot of love still and we're still dealing with rusty, single-chain baskets, a few bent up by falling trees and the crew of Red Dawn 2 >.< But hey, you go to war with the basket army you have.

This isn't a "new" course per se, but this is a rather noteworthy upgrade to a course I would like to point out for those in the Berrien County area. Andrews University apparently has gone through some sorely needed upgrades to their course. They now have concrete tee pads and they also have course MAPS. If you had played this course prior to these upgrades you would understand the significance. I have update my review as well.

FWIW, I posted a map after I played the course.

HA! So you have and thanks for that. Never noticed that and it's better than the hand-drawn copy they are putting at hole 1. The hand drawn map isn't bad but does the job.

You did one for Lake Township? Hmmm...not posted with the course review. Not that there are droves of DG'ers flocking to that haven of disc golf nirvana.

Hope you didn't forget to include the mando on #17.

err, apparently I did not make a map.
I think there was one in the box when I was there and I didn't take a picture of it...
oh well.

Yeah that map brings to light the rather absurd walks between holes on that course. Played it twice this weekend figuring all the college kiddos would be gone (which they were) and it sure felt like I walked many miles. I think the walk between 13 and 14 is the longest walk between holes in all of disc golf with the walk between 6 and 7 coming in second - on the same course.

Man we sure need a solid 18 hole course other than Madeline Bertrand here in Berrien County...
