Seems the Metroparks are still open.

Looks like Rolling Hills and Indy Lake are still open...
From Wastenaw County's site Washtenaw County's page


It specifically says "for access to the trails." They call out any specific outdoor activities/facilities that say are closed.
I see you updated both courses on Disc Golf Scene as well. Thanks Bogey.

Ann Arbor, MI - Effective March 28, 2020, Washtenaw County Parks & Recreation Commission (WCPARC) will be closing Rolling Hills County Park and Independence Lake County Park through April 13, 2020, as an additional precautionary measure to slow the spread of the Coronavirus. Earlier this week, WCPARC closed playgrounds and disc golf courses however traffic through these locations has been high and observations that groups of individuals not been adhering to the social distancing guidelines have led to this tough decision. Following the lead of Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s “Stay Home. Stay Safe.” Executive Order, we are continuing to update our policies to help keep our community healthy and safe.

Please do not attempt to play during the closure. It is apparent that disc golfers inability to act responsibly, played a big role in this decision. Continued ignorance could put these courses existence in jeopardy for the future.

To help carry out Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s "Stay Home, Stay Safe" Executive Order and further protect public health and safety, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources is closing many amenities offered in state parks and recreation areas, effective now through at least April 13.
State parks and recreation areas currently remain open to provide residents with local opportunities to get outdoors; however, extensive travel should be minimal – and reserved only for essential needs – and effective social distancing (of at least 6 feet between yourself and another person) is required so that unsafe conditions do not develop and state-managed lands can remain open.
“We are doing everything possible to protect the health and safety of visitors and staff at state parks and recreation areas,” said DNR Director Dan Eichinger. “No matter how people are choosing to get outdoors, it is critical that everyone follows the social distancing guidelines. If they don’t, we will be forced to close public access to all state-managed lands.”
Closures and reduction in services include:
• Many park amenities have been closed in order to minimize the chance of people gathering in groups and/or maximize the environment for effective social distancing. Current closures include, but are not limited to, concessions, playgrounds and play equipment, viewing platforms, fishing piers, GaGa ball bits, volleyball and basketball courts, designated dog areas, disc golf courses, radio-controlled flying fields, pump tracks, and picnic tables and shelters.

I have not put the time in, to figure out which courses are State Parks. I might, if I get a another break from the honey do list. I have updated neither the courses here or on DGS.

I updated Chilson Woods and Bald Mtn here and on DG Scene.

Here's the link to the DNR's closures:

Quite a few, Dave. Custer, Brighton, Ionia and Bald Mountain are the ones I have spotted. There could be a few more around the state, but out of my usual travel range.

I will go mark Newaygo as unplayable.

Stay safe, man.

I updated conditions for Newaygo and Sleepy Hollow. Not positive if we've updated every MI State Park course, but I think so.
