New 12 hole loop is now IN and playable at Indy Lake.

My favorite part is the bog bridge connecting X3 to X4.

Is there a map around? I walked most of it a couple weeks ago, looks to be an unbelievable addition to a great golf facility. I see they added a firepit to the parking area as well.

No map, yet.. Working on it. I think the park has done a good job with signage but I haven't been out there yet to see the baskets in.

Yea, it offers elements that are not necessarily present on the existing holes so I agree it adds to the overall experience and makes it even more of a DG destination in SE Michigan. I'm really excited to throw to baskets instead of stakes in the ground. Tentatively planning a noon time round tomorrow.

I can also claim to have the first lost disc on the extras (which was even recently returned to me)

I think one of my favorite of the new holes at Indy is gonna be X8? .... one of the longer holes that plays slightly uphill to a landing zone then to the right with a bridge over a bog, to a somewhat guarded green. It'd take one helluva tee shot to set up any opportunity for 2 on that hole. I'm playing for 3 and just avoiding the 4.

That is X7, I think.. Still getting these straight. X4 is the rock wall hole, X5 is the one that reminds me of a mini version of 6A at Flip City, X6 is the really nice downhill shot, then X7 is the two-shot par 4 over the bog bridge. That's the standout sequence, to me. I also really like X11 tee with it's nice long downhill shot.

So, Ru4por and I played all 36 at Indy Lake today. The new holes are good - nice mix of woods and open.

And by the way... Aced X4!!!

Just a recommendation when they finally figure out which holes should comprise each of the two 18 hole layouts: make one set all of 18 the orange Mach 3's, and the other 18 all of the Chainstars.

Given how interwined the paths from one hole to the next are and potential for playing holes out of sequence, and the fact that you're trying to attract people here as a destination, common sense dictates making things as obvious as possible: course A = orange baskets, course B = normal baskets. Also different color tee signs for the two courses, and perhaps even a common scorecard/map that shows all the holes.

That's exactly how things are at Deerfield Park Original and Wildwood... the different tee signs and baskets make it fairly easy to navigate two courses with overlapping/interwined layouts that would otherwise be very confusing to the visiting player.
