Thanks for the heads up Derek, but these are in fact honey bees and are not aggressive. If you leave them alone they will not be getting any part of your ass. This hive is well documented and known throughout the Indy Lake community.

CAUTION ON HOLE 5!!! Left edge of the fairway about 50 ft or so from the pin theres a big dead tree with a massive beehive inside... You can see the traffic of bees goin in and out as u walk up the fairway. If ur walkin the left edge close to the pin watch out they will get ur ass!!

That's old news son! Mr. White was saying last night the new holes are close to going in and hole 16 will be epic! But yes, 13-16 will be down awhile

That is my buddy's Magnet. There are number of us on the scene that are friends with Zak. I can grab it from you, or I am sure some others might be in touch with you :)

Earth movers + disc golf = lots of options to try out. Can they dig a few pot bunkers as well? I've always thought a nice hole would be a good hazard to add to a course. Thanks for the update, Fortch.

Because of the new water park, the park is taking a bunch of the earth they removed from the old Picnic area (holes 9 - 11) and moving it to Chuck D. #16. They asked us to help them essentially terraform the land with tons of earth. Hole #16 is totally different now. It has two giant mounds where it used to be flat. The giant mounds effectively create a wall on the right side of 13's fairway. Hole #15's slope has also been altered. #14 has will not be effected. All of this should be done by the ... more

You guys are great, thanks for the quick feedback. I am excited to here of new holes, that is fantastic. Guess I will wait a few weeks to head out to I Lake. I am sad that I never got to play Picnic.

Mike, new hole 16? So, did they replace the 13-16 with new holes as well as add 6 letter holes?

Yup. Sorry Steve. Picnic is a thing of the past.



Was out there this morning to mark the new locations for Holes A - F tee pads. The basket sleeves are set in concrete, grass seed has been put down. Now all were waiting for is the debris removal which is supposed to start early next week. There is s bunch of scrap metal, refrigerators, and other random **** buried in a few spots out there that need to be dug up and removed.



Then it's just a waiting game for the grass to take root. Pray for rain!



BTW, the new hole #16 is crazy sweet.

Picnic Course is no more Steve :( They are installing a new waterpark kind of area where a number of the holes used to be, so it was pulled earlier this for good. Chuck D is missing pins 13-16 right now because of the construction, however, the rumor is the new 6 holes go in end of this month :)

Anyone that plans on playing in the state championships, if you don't have a Michigan Bag Tag you are missing out on potentially getting your registration cash back as well as other prizes!

If you want to learn how to play better tags are a great way to challenge others better then you so that you can learn from them.

Sounds like the same person who tagged up Bandemer a couple days ago, especially with the RIP logo.

The reason there is no one at the gate this time of year is because they cant afford to staff it.
