The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

This discussion is for all of those who are frustrated with the course selection around your neck of the woods.

I live in Grand Rapids, MI; and anybody who knows GR and its local disc golf courses well, knows that when comes time to play, your only logical choice is to start driving to the southside of GR. This is a pain in the butt, since I work 8-5 and trying to drive anywhere after work is a timely ordeal. I would like to see more courses on the northside of GR. For instance, how about Towns End Park, or Lamoreaux Park, or Wahlfield Park, or just any where! There is so much beautiful terrain on the Northside, that it blows my mind that no one has taken advantage of it. The only course that technical counts as being on the Northside is Riverside Park, but most would consider that park to be more centrally located. Where would you like to a course added?

Sullivan Park in Chittenango NY, Beautiful park!
Nichols Arb in Ann Arbor.. downtown and huge!
Great topic! I live in southern Wi in a town with a single course. Its a nice course, but with the highschool crowd out of school....throwing in groups of twelve, its difficult to throw a round in a reasonable amount of time. We have a wonderful park full of mature oaks and lots of elevation change.(Palmer Park in janesville, Wi) The only problem is in Janesville, disc golf has quite the stigma and money will not be spent by the cities very conservative parks department on a "stoners" passtime. Its really a shame....there is easily enough unused space to support 27 holes.
hmm i haven't played any courses in grand rapids, but from the reviews i read on dgcoursereview.com that riverside isnt the best to play in the spring due to the river overflowing. but i think lamoreaux would be a good place for a park, i live in the kalamazoo are and well there is quiet a few parks to play down here.
I would have to say lillie park on the south side of ann arbor, mi. Huge pond that could be used, big elevation change, tight woods, could be a fun course.
Good point about the "highschool crowd." There is an awesome 36 hole Disc golf course in southern GR called Brewer park that attracts a nasty crowd of people that give the sport and the course a black eye. Of course there is about 8 to 12 of these types on every hole, so my only recourse is to go there early in the morning when the underachievers are still asleep.
I used to live in the 'Zoo' so I know what you mean. One thing I like about the 'Zoo' courses is the fact that they scattered all over the greater area. It gives you more options when comes to deciding where to throw, especially with all the road construction in our state.

PS. I think Meyer Broadmore is one of the best in the state.
Bayside in Mission Bay , San Diego , CA .
i have yet to play at Meyer Broadway, but i would like to play there I've heard mixed things about the course like the tall grass off to the sides of the fairway, one course i do want to play in Michigan is flip city in Shelby I've heard some nice things about its considering it's privately owned
Flip City is Awesome! Always worth the trip, especially since there are lots of courses on the way. I try to make out there at least four times a year. It would probably be a two hour drive from the Zoo. If you do go to Meyer Broadmore, make sure you go in the spring or late fall when the grass isn't so bad. I lost two discs and found two disc in the same day there.
There is a MASSIVE park right behind out house that has soccer and softball fields and stuff but there is SOOOOOOOO much land there that doesn't get used at all. Wade went out there and played an object course and said it would be a great place for a course. Now we just have to convince the city to do it!
Interesting. Where would that be?
