Pros: Just off the bridge in the U.P. Maybe 15 mins. away.
Beautiful setting on an old ski hill.
Very challenging holes, not really for beginners.
Great variety of long-short, plenty of elevation changes.
Some long downhill shots that are pretty sweet.
Great view from the top.
Cons: Needs to be broken in more. Still a lot of rough areas.
Easy to lose discs in the thick rough.
LOTS of uphill walking/throwing.
Very un-even and rough tee boxes.
Bug spray, liquids and proper foot-wear are a necessity. Not many trash-cans.
Use of a spotter on most holes is very helpful.
Other Thoughts: You have to play it if you are in the Northern L.P.
Plenty of stores/gas stations/mystery spots in the area. Lots of camping, too.
Very good course that, after a few years of use and some proper tee-boxes will develop into a great destination. Has the potential to become a Flip City-like area.

Pros: Great lay out with a even better view from the top. Some challenging holes where you have a narrow long path to shoot through. Very tough up hill holes as the course is laid out on a ski area.
Cons: Fairly easy to navigate but a few holes are unmarked or marked with cardboard. The parking lot was closed and locked, we got dropped off to play. VERY BUGGY! If you have ever been to the UP you know how bad the bugs get. It made the last half of our round un bearable.
Other Thoughts: Great overall play experience minus the bugs.
Fun to play something different on different terrain. Holes that went up hill were quite difficult. Great course I would definitely play again next time I am up in that area.

Pros: Nice views, nice baskets, good workout, holes are laid out nicely with a good variety of shots, with some long ones mixed in. We were able to navigate around pretty easily.
Cons: My number one complaint is that if you bring your good discs, prepare to beat them up. Many of the holes are covered by gravel and rock. On those holes it seems like you are throwing on a parking lot or against a brick wall. Where there was grass, it was pretty high and full of bugs and crazy spiders. We lost a disc on 3 or 4? (White XS). Not too many other complaints, I don't expect many moderate to beginner players enjoying this place.
Other Thoughts: There was not a soul around (kinda erie), until the French guy showed up just as we were leaving and we talked to him for a while, nice guy.

Pros: Great view of the lake.
Cons: No rest area/seats after you climb the hills. You can trip and fall on the fare-ways because of twigs and branches on the ground. BE CAREFUL
Other Thoughts: I'll play again, I found a Disc.

Pros: Great layout of fairways and baskets. Nicely signed with NextTee direction signs + Fairway maps at Tees. Most fairways clear of brush and weeds. Love the hills and scenery. Privy style restrooms available at highway scenic outlook nearby. Course maps available at hole 1. No bugs in September!
Cons: Poison ivy on some fairways. Some fairways could be a bit wider.
Other Thoughts: A printable online course layout map would be a great addition. Really enjoyed this, our very first disc golf course.

Pros: Very challenging. The first 9 are great. There was only one other group when I was up there. The signs on the holes are real nice, pretty clear. Pro and am tees marked in red or blue tree stumps. Two sweet long holes, real epic. Beautiful view.
Cons: Real buggy. Bugs spray doesn't even effect these mutant mosquitos. Needs to be maintained. Real high grass; so it's real easy to loose a disc. Poison ivy on some holes, signs posted to let you know. The back 9 aren't as good as the first. can be a little hard to navigate. There's a couple blind holes that you'd need a look out for or you're gonna loose a disc. No restrooms. No fountains.
Other Thoughts: If you're in the tip of the mitten or going to the U.P. I'd check it out... but I wouldn't go out of my way for it inless they ran a lawn mower through there.

Pros: This place was a lot of fun. The first few hole were nice and easy to bring the game in and then added a lot of challenge. Some good down hill ones.
Cons: Can be kind of confusing following all the holes, and it looks like someone needs to come clean a few holes up because even it you get to near the basket itself, you can still have a hell of a time finding it.
Other Thoughts: It's easy to find discs here because the grass is so high, but it's also very easy to lose them. ***BRING BUG SPRAY.****

I think this place has been change don layout since I played this place.

Pros: Nice baskets, lots of challenges, elevation, scenery. One amazingly long downhill run. Many holes, plan to spend the day at this one.
Cons: can be very strenuous, some of the early holes have rather tight fairways with dense unforgiving rough. We spent a lot of time looking for errant discs at this course.
Other Thoughts: A bit rustic in places and sometimes tricky to navigate, but obviously a labor of love for the owner/course director.
