Anyone been to this park recently? Are the conditions playable?

I was there 2 Fridays ago and the place still had shin deep snow, but we have had a lot of melting, so who knows. there has been some good clearing on the front nine with some of the short pad lines being developed. please mind the flags for short pads and short collars.

Nate Upton   March 26 at 3:12pm

Yeah, our friends are in the process of clearing it out so its in tournament shape for this summer. They aren't done yet, but it should be playable and enjoyable.

Cristina Crosby   March 26 at 4:05pm

Chain Out DGC will be hosting a Trilogy Challenge in June. If it ever stops snowing the entire course should be well trimmed and very playable by the end of May.

I have been thinking a lot lately about trying to get a "club" sport going at the High School level. We could involve Belding (When their course is complete), Greenville, Lowell, Ionia, possibly some Grand Rapids teams, and possibly Lake Odessa. It would require some adults to step up and become coaches. Would anyone be interested in this? This may be a long term goal.

I'm very interested I can this. I'd ultimately would like to see Ionia the county as a whole establish some form of a dg club/group for the courses in the area. I a gr native, so would like to see an Ionia native step up and take these reigns with our help of a course.

Say something ... Just got an e-mail from Bertha Brock parks manager. We need to spread the word that the front 9 holes are CLOSED ON WEDNESDAY AFTER 5PM!!!!! Due to open shooting on at the gun club. This is a BIG CONCERN!!!!

Look, its only a few hours a week, on one night of the week. There is a sign posted on the 1st as well. Please spread the word, and lead by example.

Your help will make a difference.

Thanx

Derek Straayer   April 13, 2013 at 8:13pm

we will be working on tees this summer. donation tube is scheduled for this summer too, but for now the pay tube at the entrance of the park is the only place to donate right now.

Victor Wahl   April 13, 2013 at 10:33pm

Lets get out there soon Kev hmu. Is your arm all good to go now?

Kevin Crampton   April 27, 2013 at 11:07am

ALH 5870    January 21, 2013 at 8:44am

So I'm golfing this past Saturday at Bertha Brock. After only 2 holes, I'm already seeing empties thrown on the ground( mainly PBR cans) and a few others. Please pass the word around that ALL littering is unacceptable at this course. Anything that is thrown on the ground is litter, be it a cigarette butt, an empty or whatever. There are a few trash cans on the course, please use them. You had room to carry them onto the course, so you have room to take the empties to the next trash can. Please ... more

"I lost my 1997 amateur worlds stratus white with purple stamp. The bottom is inked Joe gill and then in the middle inked "TL" but the TL is made by forming the two letters together.after I found it I tried to return it to Joe and he said without hesitation "it's yours" I'd be happy to pay a reward

thanks

Seems like you either love or hate Bertha Brock. This course was designed to be challenging, unique, and physical. If technical golf is what you are after, then Bertha is right up your ally. If wide open boring golf is what you crave, then Bertha is not for you. The elevation, tight lines, and heavy rough make for a one of a kind golf experience. Every shot in your arsenal will be required. Throwing upshots from the sides of these hills require all upper body. The elevation will test your stamin ... more

Is this course all par 3s? Some signs say otherwise.

This is a course like no other, It was a great time yesterday. I met some great people and reconnected with some familiar faces from past Disc golf outings. Great job Discoholics! The course was made for the best to come out and shine, it demands the best shots, it is physically challenging, and finally the location is Magnificent. With all that said, realize this is a brand new course, it will only get better. Can't wait to play it again, spring time will be excellent.
