Pros: -All nine baskets were present, but a tree has fallen and warped basket 1.
-good double layered chainstar baskets.
-Good view from hole 6
-With the map at the beginning of the course it relatively easy to follow.
-I feel like this would be a good course for beginners or anyone wanting to concentrate on form and placement (with little risk) over long distance shots.
Cons: -The course seems to have a large drainage problem. There was water on every fairway and near every basket, plus a number of the gravel/water tee pads were unusable.
-The course could benefit from some TLC. Possibly adding more wood chips or an alternative type of tee box could make huge strides for the course.
- Any moderately experienced player will find Beverly Park underwhelming, but great for a place to take new players (bring boots just in case)
-Holes 1-3 play normally but between holes 4-6 you have to walk up a hill with some of the most unique stairs I've ever seen. The upside to this is that the two best holes on the course play from the top and its a great change from the otherwise flat squishy ground.
-The walk from 6-7 is long, but if you're already there discing I don't really see it as a problem.
-Hole 9 plays a little too close to where people might be around for my LHBH.
Other Thoughts: -Hole 6 is probably the most "fun".It's a "big" <300 ft shot down hill and it was easy to reach.
-Although this may not be a course you feel the need to play more than once if its DRY its worth a round.

Pros: Good beginner course. Two shots from top of sledding hill were cool. Desinger did a good job with what he had to work with. Nice neighborhood, nice parking lot and pavilion. I assume the restrooms are open during "the season". Navigation a non issue, ample "next tee" signs.
Cons: Framed, wood chipped tee pads are basically rutted messes at this point. Walk from 6 to 7 is long. Seems like they could have put a hole or three in that area but was thinking designer probably wasn't allowed. The sort of long walk from 7 to 8 didn't seem necessary.
Other Thoughts: Overall a nice little beginner course. Deuce or die for any one with a reasonable amount of skill. Great course to play with young kids.

Pros: Ample parking

Wood chipped fairways on the holes that could get soggy, (they even had one hole that was a bit of walk through the woods, but it was all a wood chipped path from basket to tee)

Not one, but 2 holes that one threw from a top of a sledding hill.

Decent, color engraved tee signs.

Cons: Not long enough for my liking, but long enough that it wasn't a pitch and putt course.

non cement tee pads.

Other Thoughts: This park is in a very well kept neighborhood, I felt very safe despite being close to Detroit. There is a playground and walking path for other park users to go along with this DG course.

Aesthetic-- plays through walking trails and around and over (down) a sledding hill. Multiple risks of hitting pedestrians, be careful!!

Baskets-- all in good shape. nicely visible in the dense woods.

teesigns-- nice. cutouts of the hole shape, distance and hole number...
Routing and nav-- a nightmare even with the best layed plans. the next tee signs are not overly descriptive or helpful and the long walk after #6 is torture.

teepads-- or the lack thereof is depressing. the course holds a TREMENDOUS amount of water and putting in some sort of elevated teepads would be key to helping this course succeed.

Design-- playing twice from the top of the sledding hill is a bit redundant. I think #4 should/could play UP the hill instead and it would help immensely.

Water retention-- the front and back of this course were essentially underwater. the rest of the course (456) weren't bad.
Other Thoughts:
this course is a nightmare from the word go...

It would benefit from a complete redesign.

Pros: Good course to practice your putts and approaching
Cons: The course was SUPER muddy and wet, the holes were to small, had to walk like a mile literally to get to the next hole in the woods. Wasn't enjoyable at all.
Other Thoughts: Lost a disc on hole 5

Pros: - Good basic beginner- based layout with a few lefty and righty shots. Several downhill throws. Easy to navigate- solid wood 4*4 posts to mark the long walk and the tees- they won't be easy to vandalize.
- One minor water hazard, maybe only in play for a beginner
- The rough isn't in play on all 9 holes- and while prickly- there is hardly any poison ivy which is rare and shocking for being in the woods.
Cons: - Long walk between #6 and #7, and big uphill walk twice- worth it for the shot, brutal on a 102 F day!
- Tees are mulch boxes and decent but long term they will be wrecked (this course is 2 days old at this time).

Other Thoughts: Course #1091 and counting

In response to 1st review- yes good idea to not have holes shooting towards the playground, even though you backtrack to play #8, it's not far, and it would be incredibly risky to have a hole shoot towards a playground even if it wasn't near it, vs. having to backtrack.

Pros: Short, beginner course in a small, pleasant, multi-use city park that gets lots of activity.
• Fair mix of wooded/open holes, with a reasonable balance of L/R/straight lines to the pin.
• Features two holes that tee off atop a 20'-25' sled hill that could have you emptying your bag out running the baskets - just plain fun no matter how many times you've done it.
• Pretty easy to par, but wooded holes are sufficiently tight with brush that's thick enough to penalize bad shots. Misplayed drives off the hill can sail a long way off course (especially in the wind).
• Good use of natural and pre-existing elements: uses the hill on two holes, pond can come into play on another, incorporates existing walking paths to get from hole to hole, and even as part of some fairways.
• Well marked with tall tee markers that are visually appealing (hole #, distance, shape) and several "Next Tee" signs to keep people moving in the right direction. These make navigation straightforward and easy.
• The holes themselves are well thought out, and although there are a couple of walks (from hole 3 to 4, and again from 6 to 7) the overall flow is pretty good, with the 9th basket ending up near the 1st hole and parking lot.
• Park amenities/activities also includes: clean touch-less bathrooms, pavilion, basketball & tennis courts, playground/tot-lot, volleyball pit, and softball fields.
• Excellent for an Ace Race.
Cons: This course does what it does well, but certain limitations are inherent in courses like this:
• Designer tried to stay away from other park activities while keeping the holes fairly interesting, but the parts of the course share space in a popular, multi-use park - you may have to wait before driving on some holes; courtesy and common sense are required.
• Lacks distance - essentially a putter/mids only course.
• City forced many compromises, hence no holes throw over the pond. I'm not a fan of mulch tee pads, but they didn't want to pour concrete - the good news is that you don't need big run-ups for these distances.
Other Thoughts: More fun than it is challenging. Don't complain about this course being too easy - it was never meant to host sanctioned events. If you really need to throw drivers, go to nearby Starr or Wagner. Not worth a long drive just to play here, but it is a nice supplement to those courses because of the downhill Ace Runs off the hill. All three courses are within a 5.5 mile drive, so you can easily hit 'em all for a full day's discing - makes it more feasible to drive here from another part of town.if you plan to play them all.

Designer wanted to do several things that the city simply wouldn't allow, like making better use of the pond, extending a few of the holes, and making use of some naturally occurring breaks/clearings in the trees to tuck a basket inside. Since the tucked basket would have employed a tee facing the general direction of the playground, the city said "NO." Quite honestly, they got that one right - even on a short course like this, teeing off in the general direction of toddlers at play is just a bad idea.

Quick & dirty walk through:
• 1st hole starts where the woods begin near the front of the park - a mild RHBH annie through a reasonably tight fairway.
• Hole 2 plays on either side of an island of trees/brush that forces you to go L or R around it; go long and left (on either the annie or hyzer route) and you could end up in the pond.
• 3rd hole is a straight tunnels shot lined with thick woods - keep it straight and you're OK. Griplocking or nosing it up may not end well.
• Take a short a short walk down a wooded trail to holes 4-6, which are open and play on and around the sledding hill. Climb the hill to get to 4's tee and throw east, down the hill to the pin.
• Hole 5 plays on flat ground, wrapping around to a basket at the base of the hill.
• Take the steps back up the south side of the hill to Hole 6, which plays west, downhill to a basket with dense foliage just a few feet behind it. Ace runs that ride the wind and sail long could easily end up in in the thick and nasty brush looming ominously a few feet behind the basket. Out in the open atop the hill, wind can really be a big factor. This is showcased wonderfully by the fact that holes 4 and 6 tee off in opposite directions from the same hill, forcing you to compensate differently for those tee shots.
• The middle 3 holes are followed by a significantly longer walk to 7, which plays through a tunnel out of the woods into the open.
• Holes 8 & 9 are open with a couple of mildly threatening trees, whose bark really is worse than their bite
• Flow brings you back to the parking lot near hole 1.

While there are a couple of walks (one short, one long), numerous "Next Tee" signs are employed to help you out (three of them help get you to Hole 7, without ever feeling like "Am I going the right direction?" Also, the walks take you from one "set" of holes to another, so you never take a hike just to get to a single hole.

Great course for young kids and people just starting out and fun for more experienced players who just want to run at the chains. But more than that, it isn't.
