Here's an update of the courses I'm working on...
St. Clair County, MI ~UPDATES~

Ira Twp ~ 9 Holes/Baskets + 1 Practice Basket. Work to finish the course begins in April for May 2012 opening.

East China Twp ~ 18 Holes/Baskets. Finalizing 18-hole design for course work/install Spring 2012.

Columbus County Park ~ 9-18 Holes/Baskets. Designing in progress. No date set for install until design approved.

Baker's Field Park ~ 9-18 Holes/Baskets. Designing in progress. No date set for install.

Tomahawk Park (Private) ~ 18 Holes/Baskets. Design adjustments in progress. 90% paths cleared, 10 Baskets complete. Course due to open, June 2012.

I also checked out a few potential parks in the county for future courses in 2013. Some have great potential but the rest might be too small. IMHO, the best potential is in the state rec areas or select city/township parks.

I'm really trying to get the St. Clair County area going with the current projects before I dive into more. Future considerations will be made from the success of the courses in progress.

Thanks for helping to get new courses built and for keeping us updated Donny!

I live all the way at the other end of town, but I'd still make a trip out there to play a new/different course. I even know someone who plays that lives out that way (Marine City).

I noticed only 2 people have done so since I did over two weeks ago. I know e-sigs don't turn into dollars, but it couldn't hurt to show a larger base of interest.

^^^^Thanks for the encouragement.

There is potential for courses almost anywhere. I've been looking through some gov websites to get info/mapping/gps on many properties and who owns them. Along with google earth and bing maps, you can filter through potential areas for courses without running all over town and making a ton of calls looking for info. It saves a large amount of precious time, which is of course money saved.

Looks like 2013 will be a busy one too...

Who wants to help me get a course in Windsor, Ontario? It would be just across the bridge from Detroit. I have a park picked out that would be perfect for disc golf..

Why not two


I work normal business hours M-F until 5PM'is, so I can't attend meetings in Windsor with any regularity, but I'd be more than happy to help out in any other way. Obviously a long ways from physical labor such as digging holes to install baskets, signs or anything like that, but I wouldn't mind that at all, even if it means I have to cross border and pay bridge toll. Feel free to PM me when the time's right, and we can exchange ph #'s to discuss.

Might help to have a few tourneys to raise money for the course (ala Belle Isle Tourney, but maybe at an existing course like hudson Mills, or Indy Lake).

FWIW, played heritage park in grandville, cute little 9-hole (eagle scout project)...
tried to play rosewood in jenison, but the baskets were pulled ( for the winter?) as it's a massive bowl for sledding (I"m assuming)

A course opening in Ira township? That's awesome! I used to live in Ira, it's still not too far from my current home. Whereabouts is the course being built? I'll be interested in checking it out when it's ready to play! Its also cool that they're getting one out in East China, that one will also be on on my list of courses to play...
