Gateway to northern Michigan Disc Golf

Pros: Easy access to course. Parking lot across from the beach Park and family-friendly. The addition of the back six has elevated this course and provides the additional challenge that some need. For those getting started, the original 18 can offer a chance to hone skills. As noted in other reviews, tight tree-lined lanes can add that difficult rating some seek. Beautiful walk in the northern Michigan forest. Disclaimer: I consider this one of my home courses.
Cons: As some have noted, could use some more challenging distances. Room for improvement with signage also. This can support first-timers.
Other Thoughts: As of 2017 efforts to clean up this course could increase the rating here.

Pros: Good course for working on technical approach shots. Well marked, practically no need for a map. Pretty great aesthetic in a beautiful forrest. Some interesting elevation changes, but nothing crazy.
Cons: The bad news: Most of the holes are very tight shots, entirely lined with trees and with many other trees in the "fairway." The worse news: The rest are basically a wall of trees with no real fairway. Nothing over 300 ft.
Other Thoughts: I had a fun time playing this course many times with putters only, but it can also be a very frustrating course. Even good players will inevitably hit many trees in any given round here.

Pros: -concrete pads
-nice baskets
-pretty good signage
Cons: -signage was good except for the added r holes when you get to 7.
If you just add a sign saying you add 6 holes if you play the r's it would ease all confusion.
- you need to make this course as if you've never been there and there isn't internet. Signage was okay except for this.
-most of the holes are the exact same- wooded- tunnel-low canopy shots, became boring.
-not enough a Variety, no open shots to air it out.
- design doesn't have any risk/reward, you could use a putter and make par here if you just play conservatively.
- some of the design incorporated hyzer shots, but if you hit the line perfectly, you still needed luck to get past a few random trees.

Mosquitos are very bad here, I went morning time around 8:30am.
Other Thoughts: My main problem with this course was the lack of pride and maturity of the locals that use this course.

Every sign had a message that pot wasn't invited here, followed by someone else writing something obscene about a person , or graphic drawings of people, nudity, violence, etc. grow up people. I would have hated to have a family day out there and have my kids see trash like that..

Local club needs to take pride and have a can of spray paint and fix this. It's not hard. After a few times of removing this crap, the few bad apples will likely stop. Very disappointed with the community and lack of self control. This is the future of our country, scares the heck out of me,

Bring deet
And a bathing suit.

Pros: First and foremost, the scenery. From the second hole on, you are immersed in that up north feel and it doesn't let go until you're walking back to the parking lot.

Well marked throughout and a few neat amenities including cigarette butt disposals screwed into the tee posts.

Lines are well worn and there isn't much underbrush beneath the canopy for clean disc retrieval.

Most holes play in the 200-250 ft. range with a few blind pins, especially on the "R" holes. Challenging without being daunting. Your B game will be needed here.
Cons: Mix of shots. There really isn't a signature hole on this course and there are long stretches of tunnel shot after tunnel shot which become very monotonous over time. I don't think there were any open drives to speak of. Hardly any elevation change at all either. Oh well.

Quite a few skeeters but after some DEET it was all good.

Navigation was good but there were a few places where we got turned around. Had we had a map I'm sure it would've been easy enough.
Other Thoughts: The bonus "R" holes are much more difficult than the rest of the course, which I appreciated. It's nice to offer that to those that want the added challenge. I noticed all the locals skipped them, and the lines are not as broken in as the rest of them. Seemed like everyone was out for a leisurely round and why not? It is a vacation town after all.

A good not great course and the best one in the area. I would play again next time I'm up on Lake Mitchell.

Pros: it was easy to find and fun to play. made it easy for family members who never played, to enjoy it.

the cig tubes are gret and id love to see them here in detroit.

no litter! must be the great people of the north, i didnt see any trash on the course. just nice to see.
Cons: the tee pads, much like diggins, need to be 30 to 40% longer... they are just too short. causes dangerous problems for people rolling off the front.

trees. some holes could use some grooming but i say that tongue in cheek.

what the heck is a 7 and 7r? its a 24 hole course... ill assume 7r was the missing 6 holes? could use some signage to depict that situation... its a tourist town... and im from out of town... how was i suposed to know?

Aesthetic-- area used for dg is mostly dg exclusive. course does cross access roads a couple times (even playing down the roads at times) and comes near to some more public areas.

Baskets-- discrafts, in great repair and somewhat visible in dense woods.

Teesigns-- they are there but they should/could be more descriptive as to where the baskets are. It seems that scouting about half the holes may be necessary.

Routing/Nav-- Easy. follow the paths and you'll be fine. I was impressed that the transition from the regular 18 to the alt 6 was as easy as it was. the pads for 7 and 7R were literally right next to each other. There was one longer walk between 13 and 14 but it was pretty easy to figure out.

Teepads- nice, a little short but the holes here are pretty short as well. clear enough, leave covered but that's to be expected.

12R-- Special mention to this hole. dual fairways make this one a special challenge. the right fairway is super tight while the left fairway is a little more open
Variety & Risk v Reward-- there is a lot of repetition here, the challenge factor is pretty small with the short holes here. Water comes into play on one hole (7R I believe).

Shortness- this course is seriously short and technical but the basket placement could be improved to improve the challenge factor.

Parking- I wasn't sure where to park for this one, I parked across from the first tee between some traffic cones.
Other Thoughts:
I think this course was fun but it was just that fun. Nothing more. It wasn't challenging or exhilarating. the lack of elevation didn't help.

Pros: Tight course, challenging tee shots due to narrow fairways. Concrete pads, posts with par/distance on them at the tee.
Cons: Mosquitoes are ridiculous during the summer months. Some holes are hidden behind trees, tough to see.

Pros: When we arrived at the course, the first thing we noticed was how close Hole 1 is to the parking lot. You literally get out of the car look behind you and it's right there.

The course was very clean when I went through. The other positive was the cigarette butt containers at every hole. I hate seeing a pile of cigarette butts so this was nice.

I find the course to be very scenic at some points. A couple of the holes have you finish near the road and you can see the beach and it looks really nice.

It is definitely a family friendly course which is great to get more people involved.

The Local help was really nice here as well. We caught up to a group and they told us about the course and which way to go because there are two hole #7. One is a reverse and they said if you have the time take that route. We even got lost trying to find a place and a local helped us get to our destination.

Cons: The swampy muck at hole 2 can be pretty brutal if you don't get around it.

Most of the holes were literally walk up to the tee. Look straight ahead and there is the hole. There wasn't really much variation other than a couple holes where you go left or right.

Some of the signs are gone at the holes. You can see the nails there of where the sign was but most are gone.

All of the holes are <300' so there are no power shots needed and it added to the lack of variety.

One of the locals told me that it can get really busy at times so there is sometimes a wait. I didn't have this problem but it was a Thursday afternoon so it was to be expected.
Other Thoughts: This course was a lot of fun! I took my dad out here and he is fairly new to Disc golfing and he absolutely loved this course. He learned a lot from playing it and he wants to play more which is a plus to me. I plan on making a few more trips out here if I can. I almost got 2 aces and I want to try and get my first on this course. I would highly recommend this course to anyone that is new and also break in a few discs with the wide variety of trees in the area.

Pros: you will throw every thing you have open and tight holes. left right and tight.
Cons: I know it is winter but almost all of the tee pads were covered in ice. farways were packed down by park trucks but are now a sheet of ice.
Other Thoughts: a few more warm days and the ice should melt but untill bring some spikes

-I liked the "feel" of the course. woodsy with a beach visible on a few holes.
-nice signs with hole number, distance, and par
-tee pads were decent, not great but not a hinderance
-a ton of ace runs
-would be great for beginners
-navigation wasn't a problem
-the locals were nice, a couple large groups let us play through and a some guys gave my friend and I advice on the hole
-very repetitive. every hole is under 300'. almost every hole is straight, and when there is a dogleg there is an optional straight shot as well. hole 6 is a dogleg left with an alley between some trees that is just straight. hole 11 is a dogleg right but again has the option to just throw straight through a narrow gap.
-lots of trash and graffiti
-it would be nice if the signs had a picture of the hole, but most baskets were easy enough to find
-tee pads were all different shapes and sizes. I'd rather a course have the same size pad on every hole so that I don't have to get used to new footing on every drive.
-no elevation change and no water hazards.
Other Thoughts: bring bug spray. terrible mosquitos.
