Pros: The baskets are all in good shape.

I really liked the second hole- the basket was on top of a small hill.

It was a quick round with a couple fun shots.

The course was cleared out pretty well.
Cons: From the first tee you can see three different baskets. Might get confusing on where to throw on those holes.

Tee signs- They were wooden posts with black sharpie written down on them with a rough outline of the route and distance. Amazingly the distances seem accurate, I am surprised someone took the time to measure.

I could not find the fourth tee so I made up my own tee box.

Distance- Yes, like everyone else said... it's too short.

It took me awhile to find where the first tee was. I walked around the wrong area of the park for 10-15 minutes, got in my car to leave and then finally saw a couple baskets.
Other Thoughts: I have seen far worse nine hole courses.

I played in the winter, I think I was the first person to play since the snow was on the ground.

The designer intended this course for kids and those new to the sport. I think it is perfect for that.

What about the woods behind the playground area? Seems like a good spot to put nine more (and hopefully longer) holes.

This is a pretty short review... because it was a pretty short course.

Pros: - Good for very young and beginner players.
- Takes less than 30 minutes to get through the course.
- A good short game/putt practice course.
- Easy aces if you practice enough.
Cons: - Not very tidy
- Lots of woody areas that seem to be "hobo holes"
- Animal skeletons are littering the high grass and wooded areas. Be careful with kids.
- Poison ivy is also out there.
- Fairways aren't kept up as well as they could be.
- Hole 6 is a bit confusing because the basket is actually left of you from the tee, but you see the basket to hole 8 right in front of you through a clearing.
- Careful with the berries out there if you have children that like to try things.
- Tees are just dirt patches with a 2x4 barrier around them.
Other Thoughts: I only play this course because it's only a 2 minute drive from work or home for me. This is a mediocre course for improving your short game and your putts. The only real challenge on this course is trying to finish hole 9 in 3. If I have the time, I'd rather head across town to Goldenrod DG Course for a better challenge.

Overall: Not worth a trip to play unless you live close by.

-This is a good place for beginners to learn the game at! It's also a fun ace run course for better players. It's not just wide open either, every hole is unique and demands accuracy.

-Even through the course is very short and easy for the most part, the last three holes are legit par 3's.
-If you have never played here you WILL get confused navigating after hole #5. When you walk up to the #6 tee sign, you have to turn to your left and look 30 ft. through a vine patch to see the basket. Throw to that basket! After that you will see hole #7 and it's easy from there.

-The tee boxes are small and squared off by pieces of wood. It's possible you could trip on them if your not careful. Also there's some spots on the course where the brush can be very thick if you shank your throw. Don't forget Bring bug spray either!

Other Thoughts:
-The only other course thats really in the Flint area is Goldenrod and that's way on the other side of town, so it good they built another course for the people in the area.

-I didn't rate this course low because of the design. My rating would definitely go up if they added things like concrete tees, better tee/navigation signs, or even 9 more holes.

 One For The Short Game

Pros: This is a good course if you are looking to work on your approach shots. The holes are very short.
Cons: I totally missed holes 6 and 7. They weren't clearly marked. Tee pads are the ground with 4x4's outlining the area. Due to the lack of the need for a running start or a multiple step approach, the ground is fine. Up-keep is lacking.
Other Thoughts: I would like to see this course improve in quality for next season. A couple longer holes could be added with the large grass area adjacent to the parking lot.

Pros: Its free. Would be a good course for kids or someone new to the game. First five holes are less than 180'. Hole 7 & 8 are in the low 200' range and #9 is about 350'.
Cons: I think they forgot about hole #6 when they installed the course. The basket in front of you is the one for hole #8. Basket for #6 is to the left of tee box thru the brush about 30'. (not a typo i do mean 30'). Posts are in the ground where tee boxes are but no signage. Tee boxes are grass with wood frames. Baskets one thru five are numbered the others are not marked. Small stumps on fairways.
Other Thoughts: I appreciate the effort from the folks at the YMCA . We need all the DG courses we can in the Flint area. Could get a better rating if length was added.
