No, I don't know what it will be called. That was the name of the ball golf course that used to be there, as well as the apartment complex. But the apartment complex has changed its name. The image below shows the location of a likely new disc golf course on Ford Lake in Ypsilanti, MI.

This is a pretty exciting opportunity. At first glance, I'm thinking about three loops of nine holes coming out from the parking lot, and each 9 potentially linking to a fourth 9 in the woods. The three 9s in what was the ball golf course area would be easiest to toughest, left to right, on the image. Probably putting in the toughest (Gold). I kinda like the idea of a Hole 1 that is 1,100' long. How about you?

can we still expect spring or have you been able to narrow the eta?

Since I started playing a year and half ago, I've always thought it would be nice to have a course there. I grew up just a couple miles from it and I used to run from home to Bridge Rd. and back.

The only weakness there (as with WW) is that there is little to no variation in elevation. It looks like it would be quite technical in it's own right when you get back in the woods next to the water.

I believe the new name of the apartment complex is "Lakeshore apartments"

Good job Terry!!!

Terry your crazy, 1,100 ft 1st hole. All i have to say is it better be a par 5 or 6 and make shure you warm up before you play that monster.

love waterworks by the way.my personal lunchtime practice facility!!! can't thank you enough calhouns for making that course happen, was a relative noob when I helped with the volunteer install day....any chance of concrete pads/signs? I think a springtime workday is needed.

garrett graham did a nice job with the replacement basket for #1

two course less than five minutes from work.....boy this could lead to trouble!

With Waterworks it's own success, and this being I think privately owned and Waterworks baskets being owned by the city, that can't happen.

terry, just read you comments about the first hole being 1000ft plus.....it would be nice to have a longer course to compliment the shorter/technical course at rolling hills.....

gabriel said "It'll end up being like waterworks... Crack heads and junkies everywhare"

never really see anything bad happen at waterworks and I make it out there all the time. I think the question will be......do they pull waterworks to make this 27 or 36 holes??? hope not!
