A little tree-intensive
Pros: - A very technical course, by and large, many of the courses in the area (HM, P@L) tend more towards big arms.
- well maintained and relatively clean - the people we saw patrolling for trash were mostly in the open areas, though, which is where no one leaves it.
- Two tee pads on most holes
- Brush is rarely very thick, difficult to lose discs
- Good changes in elevation. Two holes back to back (12&13 or so?) have extreme (by SE MI standards) changes, and are neat holes.
- The blind holes are well done, but spotters are recommended
Cons: - The vast majority of the holes seemed to favor a LHBH or RHFH shot. Not all actually turned to the right (though many do), but many of the "straight" holes are very tight on the right and open to the left, making a RHFH/LHBH a much safer shot.
- Though I listed the technical nature as a plus, some holes went too far. I always feel (skill bias, perhaps) that threading it through the first 3-6 trees in the fairway is skill - the rest of them are just luck. I'd rather get penalized for lack of skill than lack of luck. I recognize that I have a bias towards big arm courses, and tried not to penalize much for this.
Other Thoughts: If you're in the area (e.g. Ypsi), this makes a nice bookend with the Ponds at Lakeshore, which is an open, distance course.
The year pass vs. day pass seems about right to me - if you don't live in the area, $5 isn't that bad, but if you do, the cost of the year pass is more than worth it.

Pros: Very clean and well-maintained. Good tees and good baskets. The placement of the baskets relative to trees and/or elevation on some holes makes them interesting. Multiple tees make the course ideal for players of various skill levels.
Cons: While each hole is unique, the challenge always involves naviagting through trees. If you like a variety of holes that include open-field throws or water coming into play, you won't find that here. The direction of the next hole is sometimes poorly-marked. There are no signs at the tee, just yardage markers. You are throwing blind when the basket is not visible.
Other Thoughts: The course was extremely crowded when I played, although everyone was very friendly. The entrance fee (especially for out-of-state visitors) is way too high, but they do take credit cards.

This Course is a GEM!
Pros: 18 Unique Holes. Concrete Tees. Pro and Am Tees on a lot of the holes. Clean and well kept. Friendly players. Mix of both wooded and non-wooded shots. Cool elevation shots. Cool blind drives.
Cons: The signs for the next holes could be a little nicer. Not bad or hard to follow they just don't do the course justice. Price is a rip if you are going to play by yourself but with a few friends seems more than fair! There is no real concession stand. You have to pay a seperate fee to get into the waterpark if you want access to a concession stand.
Other Thoughts: This course was an 1 1/4 hour drive for me and was WELL WORTH THE DRIVE! This is a course you will want to arrive early at. Play a round and then enjoy the waterpark. Go back and play another round. The park is very nice. Bring something to drink and something for lunch. Not much in the way of eating near by. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting a break from HudsonMills.

Pros: Very well maintained course make for a very enjoyable and scenic round of disc golf. Nicley mowed fairways on every hole make finding discs fairly easy. Mulch around many baskets looks really nice and helps your disc stay when you brick on the long putts. Great use of elevation. Great mix of open and tight fairways. Cement tee pads, signs around course help for easy navigation. Pro and Am tees on most holes. This course never seems to be really busy, can be a challenge for higher skill levels but can still be a fun course for beginers.
Easy acess to I-94 many other nice courses in the area.
Cons: $9 daily pass for non county residents.
No dogs aloud.
Other Thoughts: What a beautiful Course.

Pros: Very well-kept course. Nicely designed with clean cut fairways both in the woods and out. Well marked and low vandalism. Challenging holes throughout. Great use of elevation. Hyzers and Anhyzers needed here.
Cons: Too crowded when I played, however there was a doubles tournament going on, so we had to wait on a few holes.
been crowded EVERY time I've gone; it's $9 bucks if you don't live in Washtenaw county! man, bring like 5 friends so you don't have to eat the 50 cents/hole fee.
Other Thoughts: $5 bucks if you live in Washtenaw. You don't need ID, just a real zip code.

Pros: Interesting course with plenty of wooded shots. Very easy to navigate between holes. A mix of sun/shade. Also a good mix of elevation shots. Dual tees that are actually more challenging for the Pro Tees (as opposed to just being 10 feet behind the am tee).
A very well maintained fairway and probably the cleanest course I've seen.
Cons: Some holes have 6ft tall brush to eat a disc. No dogs allowed. Odd park hours and pricey to get in.
Other Thoughts: Dogs are not allowed on disc golf course. Waterpark and Snack Bar open during summer.
No entrance to park from Bemis rd.
Course starts at opposite end of parking lot from park lounge, look for practice basket.

Great course with surprising amount of hills
Pros: Course itself is 18 holes, most very fun. Surprising amount of steep hills for southeast Michigan - you'll be throwing uphill and downhill at times. Course includes warm-up hole and nice clubhouse with bathroom.
Everything is well-marked - if you are ever confused, look for a 4x4 post near the basket - it usually has an arrow to the next hole. Tees are in great shape, and clear about distances and directions. Everything's in great shape - no vandalism.
The holes are really fun. There's a great mix of wide open blasts with a lot of precision throws through tunnels of trees.
No water holes, and very little swampiness.
Cons: There's a $4 car fee, but most of the times I've come no one has been in the guard house, so it's been free.
A couple of holes are blind, so unless you've played the course before, it's hard to know where to throw.
Other Thoughts: Start at the far end of the parking lot - away from the clubhouse.
Bring bug spray.

Pros: Elevation changes and hole placement are awesome. They used each area of the course perfectly. The baskets are in good shape and, if you're playing it for the first time, it's easy to find your way around. Challenges a lot of different shots and sets up well for a player with finesse. Plenty of parking.
Cons: Not many problems with this course except the price tag. Eight bucks is a lot to play a course but it's all day and it's worth it.
