I really enjoyed the course today. As a Am4 rated player, that plays am3 when I can I enjoy the course, Was really challenging, and i believe practicing on this course will help anyone out and any level. The concern I have with it is, As i do not live in Ingham county the 9$ a round it will cost to play. (4$ per person to play, 5$ per car to park). I do understand the pay to play concept as the course needs to be maintained and money has to come from somewhere. With so many parks in the area ... more

I just played the course today. This course is great!!! The amount of work being put into this course is crazy. It reminds me of a ball golf course, but disc golf style. There were park workers out on the course doing work the entire time I was at the park. I was there from about 3-8. I played a practice round to figure out what was going on with the course and then a 2nd round were I kept score. I brought a course map and the distances Matt listed here the other day. The distances se ... more

Nice!! So the course is a par 63-66 or so? Sounds, and by the looks of the course map, looks awesome! I'm sick of par 54 courses! This is going to be a great!

Baskets are in! Course is tough to follow, but here's a link to the course map... I suggest you print this if you're going to play a casual round. Directional arrows and tee signs will be up for the tourney.

I too have a hospitality job, but I'm working with the parks schedule... sorry. However, if you can't make it, it was nice of you to try.

Volunteers needed!!! May 7th at 230 pm and May 14th at 230 pm we are having work days at Burchfield to help the park expedite the process. On the 7th we'll be putting in directional arrows and hopefully some tees signs... amongst other manual labor type of tasks. This day would be a great opportunity for those to come out and see the course and get a feel for it before they throw.

On the 14th we'll be putting in the baskets and maybe a few other finishing touches. Then it's game on!

So please come help. The parks already done so much, lets show them our appreciation!

Ok, so the rain is and is not helping our situation here. it's feeding the grass but with no sun, there's no time to grow.. so that's slowing things down a bit. But the park manager assured me the course's tournament layout would be in a week before the Burchfield Open. And the moment we put the baskets in, I'll post for all to see.
