Is the course open this weekend during the races?

Andy Smith   1 day ago

No and I'm sorry for the inconvenience. We have some much needed maintenance and cutting to be done this weekend . Due to the race schedule is going to be hard for regular traffic to get onto the island I had of the races all even we have to have special passes for this. Course will resume regular hours on Monday .

lost an orange firebird in the water on hole 15. name and number are on it


Fred Vocino    May 15 at 10:43am

I'm keeping my schedule flexible for a tournament in the fall. It looks like folks expect to have the water issues resolved by then. Where we have general concerns about the melting of the polar ice caps and the movement of water over the Canadian-shield into the GreatLakes system, I am particularly troubled by the prospect of loosing islands like Belle Isle.

Nick Oliver   May 15 at 12:15pm

We will definetely have at least 2 tourneys after summer. Grand Finale and one other (beeer, please).

Doug Williams    May 15 at 10:25am

Heading to Detroit Monday 5-18 for a week of training. Looking for a place to play some kind of organized play. This appears to be the closest course to my hotel at the RenCen...any ideas on where or when to go...also is this course a walkable distance from the RenCen?

Enjoyed the course but it sure could use a mow. Shame more folks didn't show up for the 1st league nite. Thanks Eric for the ride it was greatly appreciated.

Nick Oliver   May 21 at 9:54pm

Jim Stack    May 8 at 7:18am

Nick Oliver   May 8 at 9:30am

Indeed. If everything goes as planned next spring and this fall will be more better in terms of water. We appreciate the support brother!!!

Nick Oliver    May 5 at 10:18am

Tuesday Random Dub league starts tonight!!!


Brendan Livingston    May 3 at 10:52pm

Lost 2 discs in lake muskoday today, the first was a Blue McPro Aviar 20 feet off the coast near the first willow on 14. I shot that at at hole 5 and it took off over the bridge. The second is a yellow Gstar Boss, which hit the second willow near the basket on hole 14 and fell into the water 20 feet offshore. This is just a record in hopes of getting these tagged discs back at some point.

Good to know Nick, I've heard there are a whole slew of discs down there, we should get a scuba team, lol.

Nick Oliver   May 8 at 1:55pm

I was looking for a wet suit and some gear like that. Any ideas?

Brendan Livingston   May 8 at 3:07pm

update, as of today hole 4 is the only really wet hole. It's drying out fast. Mike, how is Riverbends in terms of water right now?

mike walker   May 4 at 7:46am

Darren Harper   May 7 at 7:20pm

what the river dried up?

Stephen Moore    April 28 at 12:58pm

Is there a league that will be hosted here during the week? With the hours, I was not sure. Since I work in the city it would be cool to have a league close by.

William Gilbert    April 15 at 1:33pm

Andy Smith   April 15 at 11:41pm

Yeah we will be down early enough to let you throw. Gonna try and put all the baskets back in on Saturday so should be ready to play. If you come out at 10am we'll get you out.

Nick Oliver   April 16 at 2:33pm


William Gilbert   April 18 at 1:11am

Well we had hoped to have our league there. but if not in we will have to discuss going elsewhere]

Nick Lamentola    April 11 at 10:45am

So we can't play this course until May 1st? Just curious because I was thinking about coming out that way today to hit a couple courses that I've never played.

Ben Taylor   April 11 at 11:04am

see previous post: "May 1st is opening day. First event is April 19th, but daily play will start on the 1st. ". They've had issues with people playing outside of the specified times which the DNR frowns upon, so not yet it appears

Nick Lamentola   April 11 at 11:44am

Okay I just wasn't sure if that meant May 1st was opening day for some league or something.

Nick Oliver   April 11 at 9:19pm

Ben, thank you Ben! We have a nice deal with the DNR, but we def need to get the people to respect the rules they have laid forth for us. Hope to see you both out there!

Nick Oliver    April 1 at 9:00am

May 1st is opening day. First event is April 19th, but daily play will start on the 1st.

Season passes will be available for $25! Thats it! New logo and merch coming very soon. Be sure to like us on Facebook. The course is very much in a state of growth, so please help support us by coming out to play every chance you can.

Jim Stack   April 1 at 2:17pm

can't wait they get the water shut off ?

mike walker   April 2 at 10:28am

any idea on how many clubs will be selling merch?

Nick Oliver   April 6 at 7:58pm

We've got about 10 tables reserved and a few promised. Only one club this far. I think...

Nick Oliver    February 16 at 1:49pm

Want to sell some of your treasure trove, get some new stuff, and meet cool people, all at the same time? Come check out the next event! Spring Swap 'n' Fling


Nick Oliver    December 11 at 9:16am

Zack Cardenas   December 18 at 1:17am

Nick Oliver   December 18 at 8:14am

Zack Cardenas   December 18 at 9:11pm

Nick Oliver    December 10 at 12:31pm

We are posting some of the photos from the Grand Opening (they sorta got lost in the shuffle). Please feel free to share, snag, or request high-res versions if you like. Thanks to all who came out throughout the year.


Nick Oliver    November 25 at 10:20am

Sweet discs for a cause we can all agree on! From Chris Leo - Discraft are offering the clubs involved in the Michigan Disc Golf Organization (MDGO) by allowing us to purchase the following limited edition discs, an ESP Glow Buzzz and a ESP Banger GT. The proceeds will be benefit the Discraft Michigan State Finals and the club selling them. The logo on both discs will be the MDGO hot stamp which can be seen here: if you or your club is interested in purchasing them c ... more

Found a white disc in the water of hole 4 (eastern side of the bridge). Says Brian on it (cant read the rest). Anyone?

Nick Oliver   November 24 at 12:36pm

Your Destroyer says Brian? lol

Nick Oliver   November 24 at 12:36pm

But no, we didnt find that yes. Was that the one you launched from 3 and it went off to the right? We are going to work through the water in spring and I have my eyes out for that dude.

Bart Kowalewski   November 24 at 12:44pm

Damn. I thought it was that one

Nick Oliver    November 14 at 3:30pm

We will be out working this Sunday, 10am. We will be focusing on tree trimming and opening up some shots on a few holes. If you would like to come please do! Bring tools. We have very limited supplies on saws and all that so...

Look forward to seeing you out there. Those who show will be a part of the illustrious Belle Isle Brigade (details on what that entails will be leaked in the next few months).
