This Saturday, November 9th, we are hosting a fundraiser at the Michigan State University Disc Golf Club! We are hoping to raise enough funds to put in our three missing baskets, get course signage, and help send our team to Georgia for the NCDGC! We have several CTPs, and will also be having a raffle and ace pool. Come on out for a fun day of golf on our new layout!

Cashless pre-registration:

Fitz had a fundraiser last weekend.

Eric Savoie   November 6 at 4:17pm

I'm aware, this is a separate fundraiser to support the Disc Golf Club at MSU. I was hoping that some people that play at Fitz/in the Lansing area would be willing to come out and support us.

Some jackhole casuals took the basket out of the ground on 13!!! Prickos!!!

And yes we put it back in as best we could without the proper tools.

Harold Fernando   October 26, 2013 at 10:14am

yeah it is good. has anyone played there recently to see if it's still in the ground?

Jim Knudson    September 27, 2013 at 10:15pm

Had some bees swarming around the bottom of the tree closest to the basket on #3 tonight.

Bee careful tomorrow Mr.Spags!! I'll take a picture and sell posters this time. :)

Harold Fernando   September 28, 2013 at 7:07am

Lol. Course maintenance time Spaggy!

There many nice pics of the holes on the info page. Now that many are obsolete, how do you preserve them on DGS without confusing people who want to remote-prep for tournaments/etc.?


Matt Dimick    September 20, 2013 at 7:02pm

Went out and measured all the holes today with Mike and Harold and the new distance for the course is 5528 feet from the pro pas and 4977 if you play the 3 am tees.

That's about 500 more feet and 4 more strokes. Most 500 foot holes would be a par 4, so it all makes sense!!

Justin Abram   September 21, 2013 at 2:01pm

Did the pro tee for... 6? get sorted out and moved like there's been talk of?

Matt Dimick   September 21, 2013 at 3:10pm

Not yet. But it's in the works

Geoff Shaw    September 20, 2013 at 2:05pm

playin a round soon if anyones down to join


Fred Vocino    September 10, 2013 at 3:39pm

I'm coming to try Fitzgerald before Open/9.28. Pics of prior layout are presumed, I'm hoping to go when other players gather. What's a good day/time to find knowlegable players on the course? BTW - The current pics do show a land and tree environment that ensures good design choices. Given the people involved I'm confident the new layout will intrigue us.

Fred, I can play Saturday or any day after 5pm.

Doug Prizer   September 10, 2013 at 6:01pm

I'll be out there with a group on Thursday after work.

Fred Vocino   September 11, 2013 at 11:05am

Thanks guys..Thurs and Fri are not good for me. I'll get with Jim and post on "play here".

Jim Knudson    September 4, 2013 at 2:19pm

I use and carry 2 less discs in my bag for the new layout. Easier on old guys!

I will do a complete review after playing it a couple more weeks.


Harold Fernando    September 3, 2013 at 1:47pm

I did notice while playing yesterday with the heavy traffic due to Labor Day that hole 5 on Fitz's new layout can be a potential problem due to people grilling out on the picnic tables close to that rock pile. Can we move these tables so it's not on the fairway? I had to alter my upshot because this guy was grilling and just staring at me, and I sure couldn't throw where I wanted to. I guess some people still need to be educated that there are flying objects at that park. Furthermore, on hol ... more

The totally pained expression on Harold's face while he was trying to find a line around the picnic tables was PRICELESS!!

Jim Knudson   September 4, 2013 at 2:09pm

At least there were no bees hiding under the tables.

Mike Spagnuolo   September 4, 2013 at 4:18pm


Chris Booker    September 2, 2013 at 7:46pm

Hey guys. What's par now for the new layout? From pro pads where available?

Mike Spagnuolo   September 2, 2013 at 7:49pm

58 as of now

Mike Spagnuolo    September 2, 2013 at 7:43pm

I got some new chain hooks for some of the baskets. I'll fix them soon

Brandon Schafer   September 2, 2013 at 8:49pm


Harold Fernando   September 3, 2013 at 12:37am

Jim Knudson already fixed some...SLACKER!

Mike Spagnuolo    August 29, 2013 at 9:46pm

Basket is back in.

Harold Fernando   August 30, 2013 at 12:38am

Cool. One from the woods?

Matt Rinker   August 30, 2013 at 12:45am

no, someone threw it down a hill/cliff at the park.

Mike Spagnuolo    August 27, 2013 at 10:51pm

Hole 13 has been stolen. Working on a solution


Mike Spagnuolo    August 25, 2013 at 8:53pm

The park is closed to cars on Monday and Tuesday BC of railroad construction . You can still walk in though.


Jesse Rohdy    August 25, 2013 at 9:44am

Car show on hole 2 today, I guess I'll play some other time


Mike Spagnuolo    August 24, 2013 at 5:49pm

Everyone please re rank the course on scene after you play the new layout. Let's bring that B- up!!!

I have only played the new layout, so I won't have the problem of separating my fondnes for the old design from an objective evaluation. Like, "How do you like that beef?" - "It isn't chicken." I'm on a mission to make ratings more reliable. Weighted for pointed observations about present conditions.

Fred Vocino   September 26, 2013 at 11:18am

I will wait to rate until the "makover" is finished. Let the fundraiser and spring 2014 pass- that should be a good time to rate again.

Mike Spagnuolo    August 23, 2013 at 10:56pm

New layout is in place. Follow the white signs and pink paint. Hope everyone likes it.

Chris Eberhard   August 24, 2013 at 10:45am

Love the new course layout! Great Job! Although, #6 was sure tough on my forehand shot:). Thanks for your hard work!

Mike Spagnuolo   August 24, 2013 at 5:47pm

no problem Chris. I'm glad you had fun.

Chris Booker   August 24, 2013 at 8:16pm

will check it out tomorrow looking forward to it

Mike Spagnuolo    August 18, 2013 at 11:33pm

The course will be under construction from day to day after this Wednesday 8/21 . The new layout will be available to play in full before the tourney Sept 28th. Hope you all like it.

Harold Fernando   August 19, 2013 at 10:26am

It's gonna be sick people!

Matt Dimick    August 14, 2013 at 2:04pm

Holes 17 and 18 are no longer in, They have been moved between current holes 10 and 11. There are signs to point you in the right direction! Hole 2's basket has also been moved back and the new distance on Hole 2 is roughly 542 feet.

Matt Rinker   August 14, 2013 at 2:51pm
