Default Help plan my Flip Trip!

Hey all, I'm planning a trip from St. Louis to Flip City the first or second week of September. I've got a pretty good idea of the courses I want to play, but am open to other suggestions. Also, I plan to explore some sand dunes and light houses and I like cozy beach towns, so any other cool stuff around I'm all ears. Last, I'll be solo, I break camp at dawn or a little before and I play pretty quick, so I can cover a lot of ground in a day.

Thursday 2 PM: Leave St. Louis to Lemon Lake area to camp

Friday: Play LL Gold. I see EAB has wreaked havoc at LL. Should I play Red or Blue there, or head straight to Rogers Lakewood?
Play Rogers Lakewood.
Head to Saugatuck/Holland.
I'd like to leave a little time to explore the dunes at Saugatuck, or do something else cool around? Hopefully camp at Saugatuck.

Saturday: Play Shore Acres Park. Head to Flip. Play Flip twice and camp there.

Sunday: Head up to Ludington. Play a few of those courses, see the sights (what exactly are those sights???) and then head back and camp at Flip again (if possible).

Monday: Head to Breakers. Then head to South Haven to play Lake Arvesta. Head to Indiana Dunes NP (will it be too crowded if I get there mid afternoon?) Camp somewhere.

Tuesday: Head over to Joliet and play Highland Park and then Canyons. Head home a happy dude.


I added in Breakers on Monday because Lake Arvesta doesn't open til 10, so I have roughly two hours to kill. Better course around? Something cool to do?

Tower Hill at Warren Dunes in Michigan is a great sand hill to visit on the beach.

Awesome, thank you.

Elmexdela: Just a little tent camping. Need a small fire pit and a place to park my truck. I'll keep a look out for your writeup, thanks. Is there another mini destination that you'd hit instead of Lemon Lakes?

so primitive/dispersed type correct

ll is mostly park style open

ll gold seems to have lost many trees over the years and plays pretty open despite being in the woods

no other complex but i would say bounce around courses along the coast

I wouldn't change anything about that trip. Looks solid all the way through it.

You're gonna run into the main problem of that there is no more camping at Flip City as of this year.

Warren Dunes > Any Dunes in Indiana. I would imagine the camping experience is better at Michigan State parks

Hit up Beauty and Beast in Ludington. Skip LL and go to Rodgers-Lakewood. Camp at Ludington State Park if you can get in. After playing Breakers and if you are looking to kill some time play Winstrom Park. Its a quirky little technical 18 holer that isn't hard to get to and plays pretty quick. If Arvesta is done it'll probably be ok but I would skip it in its current state and dedicate more time in the Ludington area or another round at Flip. Shore Acres is great and watch out for cactus.

No idea on why camping is over, but Bill's a saint for allowing it for so long. Even if almost everyone is respectful, there's bound to be the occasional db. The camping area was a few hundred feet from the house he lives in with his family.
