Disc Golf
This is a new recreational opportunity at Bald Mountain Recreation Area that is fully funded by the Friends of Bald Mountain Recreation Area. In spring 2018, the park will introduce a new, tournament grade 9-hole disc golf course open in the South Unit day-use area. As part of a four-phase project, we plan on having 18 holes open by fall 2018 and 36 holes open by the fall 2019. Two separate courses have been designed as the “Hills” Course and the “Lakes” Course offering different terrain and obstacles, both with amateur and professional tees to cater to all levels.

It was Minicuci. DNR, Mrs. Minicuci, Shaun Adkins, Krystal Fromm had input, and helped a lot.

Heard a rather unpleasant rumor that Leviathan is getting pulled. Can someone confirm or deny this?

Just got back from States and heard nothing to this end.

Conjecture and supposition alert below.

Though, it is on Forestry or school land, I think. There is no drinking in the course and it seems like that was a big point of emphasis at this courses inception. I could see litter and drinking causing issues. They have great club presence out that way, hopefully they can step in and let cooler heads prevail.

All that said, I did get a chance to play Walhalla Woods out that way, a couple times this weekend. What a wonderful course.

I grew up in ludington, and yes, the course is on land that is owned by the school system. I bet there is a constant threat of pulling the course due to drinking and litter. The guys that run stuff up there are responsible adults so I doubt there is anything to worry about.

There is a continuing problem of drinking, smoking, and other childish behavior that goes on at Leviathan. It is from a minority of disc golfers and unfortunately can be expected as the short tees are considered the "city/beginner" course in the area. Our local club continues to battle this issue. The rumor of Leviathan shutting down is not a rumor though, it is a distinct possibility in the future for a whole other reason.

With the increased attention to school safety, the Ludington School District is proposing building a new high school. They are exploring a lot of options at this time including using the school forest as the new location. This of course would mean Leviathan would have to go. It's still in the early stages and no set dates or determination of where the new school will be have been decided. The MCDGO and local bike club had talks of overhauling the parking area of the course but I believe this has been put on hold until the school districts final decision on the new school's location.

Glad I got the chance to play Leviathan today. I played the long tees and it was an absolute joy. Total bummer about the possibility of it getting pulled. Unfortunately that is always a risk with courses on private property.
