Pros: Have played this twice, a year ago and a week ago (and hopefully later today). The layout has changed and improved from a year ago, the tees were updated to from rubber matts to cement and now has better marking of the tee, the hole and where the next tee is. Nice mix of open, woods short and long.
Cons: the baskets are still identified with the original hole numbers, which makes it harder to navigate the first time. On one or two holes, was not sure the proper basket, and just sort of guessed.
Other Thoughts: Long course, so takes some time to play (I'm an old guy with out much distance). Last played on a sunday morning and saw maybe four other groups playing. Plenty of parking. UPDATE: Played this twice in the last few days, between Friday and Sunday they moved four baskets, but I had no clue of that until later. Found three of the four that moved, but only after 'finishing' play at the previous spot. Be nice if hole diagrams indicated locations of alternate basketballs, and some indication at the first tee that alternative basket locations are in effect.

Pros: Interesting terrain and usage of available property, including forest, sand dunes, open grasslands, large old trees, and one small nasty looking pond (which comes into play on a few holes). Good creative hole placement which gives plenty of opportunities for using every shot in your arsenal, left and right handed holes in fair proportions, several holes that reward precision and several holes with opportunities to 'let it fly' and multiple risk/reward choices throughout.
Cons: Rubber tee pads presently, that, when mixed with the sandy terrain make for very slippery footing. Very confusing layout at times, much better signage and/or maps would be nice. Course is not designed well for playing 9 or 18, as the front nine leaves you quite a distance from the parking lot.
Other Thoughts: Scenic, and well worth a return trip. Nice to see a disc course in this under-utilized corner of Michigan. Portapotty at the first hole. Wear good shoes, because there are prickly pear cactus all over the place on this course, and the 'rough' on the wooded holes is brutal.
