Yes to rolling hills. No to goldenrod.

Please also consider the current course condition, aesthetic qualities, and hole/line variation.

If you play Indy then your day pass will work at Rolling as well. Holly Woods is great, but will need your State Passport just a heads up before driving that far north. All your choices are great.

Really appreciate the responses!! I love this community!

We're coming from up north and we played Kensington two weeks ago (LOVED it!). We wanted to play Hudson and a course neither of us have played. We're considering: 1) Independence Lake, 2) Rolling Hills, 3) Holly Woods, and 4) Goldenrod.

If Saline wasn't so far south of AA, we'd definitely check it out. The pictures make it look great. Too bad there aren't more holes.

Depends on the time of day. Kensignton is pretty sweet in its own right and the two aren't comparable, very different. Indy has the advantage of the fact that it has MUCH less traffic.

So Id say Adam if your playing early go to Kensignton. (weekday ok to tee off < 3pm, < 1pm on weekends) Any times later than that and the casuals will back you up and annoy you (terrible at Kensignton).

The blessing of Indy is that its never busy and the traffic there is usually only regulars.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion Nick, but I've got to believe that most DG'ers would agree that Indy > Kensington.

saline for sure. well worth the drive. thank us later.


Nancy Leat    September 28, 2012 at 10:19am

I played here yesterday and the gravel tees are quickly becoming just dirt tees. Got a lot more traction on my drives yesterday than before. Thanks to whoever pushed all the gravel off the letter tees....yay!!!!


Nick Oliver    September 28, 2012 at 10:06am

I would go to Kensington. Only about 30 minutes from Hudson and much better than Indy, even though I do like Indy. Gravel tees are horrid.


Mike "Papa Par" Even    September 28, 2012 at 9:53am

And boom goes the dynamite


Nate Wheeling    September 28, 2012 at 9:42am

Adam - there are currently 20 great holes to shoot from here...well worth your time. The added extras don't have cement tees yet, but they have gravel/stone to throw off of. Credible local sources also claim that Saline Rec is a gem, which is fairly close to Indy and HM...enjoy greater Dexter/AA DG.


Adam Matthews    September 28, 2012 at 9:33am

I'll be coming down to Hudson Mills and want to play another good course. It looks like this course is in a state of flux. Should I pick somewhere else?


Chris Leo    September 25, 2012 at 7:52am

Left a orange Z Drone I believe on Hole 7. Name/# are on it. Reward if returned.


Mike "Papa Par" Even    September 21, 2012 at 3:07pm

they were not as of last Saturday. Park has been telling us November


Tim Thomas    September 21, 2012 at 12:31pm

Are all the holes back in. Just a rumor I heard......


brian fallon    September 15, 2012 at 10:39am

Yeah Nancy, should be going on at noon.


Nancy Leat    September 15, 2012 at 10:36am

Are there Saturday noon leagues out here anymore? Anyone know?


Nick Oliver    September 12, 2012 at 1:38pm

I'm part of a group trying to put a permanent course on Belle Isle. Theres a clean up for the upcoming Oct 27th +28th tournament happening THIS SATURDAY! If interested contact me, or if your on Facebook Lets work together and create a Detroit landmark for the disc golf world!


Kyle Greenhalgh    August 30, 2012 at 10:08am

Nancy you havent by chance found a yellow champ monster have you?


Nancy Leat    August 30, 2012 at 9:59am


Went lookin for discs yesterday and found orange D plastic stingray, says 'Jess" on it. Found a yellow PD2 discmania power drive -line, says 'Chen Master Flex' on back. Found a pink discraft Meteor with a toledo area code (419) n Steve. Hit me up if they are yours or you know who they belong to. We already have STACKS of lost-n-founds in the garage.
