Yes, the course is cramped. Yes, most of the holes are really narrow and close to busy roads, sidewalks, etc. The tee signs maybe facing the wrong way, and there are no tee pads, but you don't really need any of them, if you've walked through it once. Considering what the designer had to work with, the land is supposedly protected marshland, the course is not that bad. Some shots are tight, and force you to use control, and are unforgiving, but that makes better disc golfers, right? And the wide ...

First off, Ben Calhoun hates any duece or die course because he can't make a five foot putt. This course is tons of fun, combining urban aspects to some naturistic holes. We already added long tees to hole 1 and 2. It leaves me wantng more. 12-18 can be played all night thanks to all the parking lot lights. A must see...

Nice little course. Not much land to work with but they did the best they could with what they had. Great views of downtown Southfield, sick putt through a metal sculpture, and wacky drives off dorm room roofs. Gotta love it.

i like the tons of variety from short holes to longer holes, there are shot in the open through trees, need all types of throwing... may not be the longest course but it does require some skill to do good... good for what youd expect on a small college campus...

The multiple diverse elements are what makes this course unique. This course takes you on a journey down through a wooded valley where the Rouge River runs through, back up to a giant clearing ('the Pointe'), down back into the woods, through the outskirts of the campus, back into the woods and finally along the urban setting of the service drive. North housing, a giant sculptural structure, 10 feet tall weeds, and the urban/natural mix of the course keeps me going back.

I do not know how this course is rated a B. Drove the 20 minutes to go play somewhere different. Spent 10 minutes driving around campus trying to find hole 1. Had to go off a picture post on here to get an idea. The map that is pictured in the picture is gone. Hole 1 tee sign has been moved to just by the stairs. Grass is over grown to the MAX. No clue where the tee was supposed to be as there are no tees at all. Walked to find hole 2. Found the tee sign for hole 2 and went the opposite of where ...

No tee pads, short holes but techical parden the pun. Lots of tight turn around trees,bushes, and over cat tail patchs. lost a crush on hole 11 in the ruff on the left past the hole or in the cat tails not really sure.

Great to see someone put that much work to put in 18 holes in such a small space. Once the pads go into place (no concrete : (, wood chips or something) its going to be pretty sweet.

This is the course I started on. The river and the two reed patches are both good places to lose discs. Control is what is required to navigate this course.

Front 9 poorly maintained. Back 9 contains lots of risk to buildings, pedestrians and cars.

A can honestly say there is no other course like Larry Tech. This course designer was not constrained by the typical disc golf weenies and it is not a course for the dumb casual. You need to play smart and act smart here. Beautiful holes and a perfect blend of the natural with the urban/industrial. The yellow top discatchers look effing amazing set against the high rises of Southfield. Our first postmodern disc golf course? Lack of good signs, teepads benches and other amenities take it down to a B but it goes up a grade because it's different.

If you don't make up your own teepads your crazy as to this course in its original set up is the worst for being a new course withother courses around to compare it to. first of all if your not worried about discs going into roads, parking lots, walking paths buildings then go ahead and make it the bomb beginner courses are all around we don't need any more! these other reviews are complaining about 18 that is about the only real hole out there.The course has great equiptment and the basket posi ...

Not a bad course, unique aspects like basket postioned inside steel girdered structure, very tall reeds, raods(Lodge freeway) and lots of OB. The long and short holes make this course worth a stop if in the area. There are good baskets, and designers were'nt afraid to position them close to building, sidewalks, and generally they used the land they had, very well. The course plays around the campus basically
There are signs although it is tricky to navigate from front nine to back. Just really a break from the norm, and a fun course that i'd play again.

Some holes too short. No tee pads and lack of signage for next hole make navigation tough. 2 tees had soccer matches somewhat inhibiting the throw from the tee. Lots of potential with some love and care. Roadway was about 50' from the fairway on holes 4 and 5. The 50' pitch shot down the stairwell comprising hole one was disappointing for the first hole. Would almost feel guilty registering an ace on it. Very pleased to see the University showing. interest in the sport, and supporting it wit ...

Fun course high end baskets but no tee pads? There is a lot of shot diversity on these 18 short holes, long holes, and really short holes. Did not really care for how urban it is being next to parking lots and main roads, but they did the best with the area they could. Signs were terrible and confusing had to look at pics on here to find where to go on a few holes.

This course could have been a decent 9-hole course, but somehow they managed to cram a crappy 18-hole course on the grounds. Very dissapointing course, especially after being so hyped up about a course being put in when I was going to school there at the time. A lot of the holes are either right next to busy roads or near very busy areas. I guess it's worth one play through, but you'll see why you won't want to go there again.

First time playing. Not a great course. Not a terrible course. Pros: - Cool urban/wooded layout - Decent use of land given - Good balance of rhb, lhb, and straight holes - Hole 18 is one of the best golf holes I have ever seen - Cool structural obstacles on back 9 Cons: - Holes 1 and 2 are a joke - Open field holes play next to Lodge service drive and traffic is a bit distracting - Long walks between front 9 and back 9, hole 18 and parking lot - Couldn't find Hole #1 tee sign - ...
