First things first, hike from the NE corner lot next to the church. Only takes about 10 minutes and it adds a nice dimension to the experience. :) On to the disc review... This is a park that was slated for a smaller course around the lake/pond. It would seem the land that it was going to be on would be wet most of the year, and therefore the decision to put it on the hillside and around the path makes sense. Overall the course as an 18 is very fun, fairly casual, and to be honest a bit dange ...

Blind tee shots are not my cup of tea. I really like all the tees, it makes the course very versitile. Never thought I'd say, damn you wildlife!, lol. Have fun on this challenging fun course set inside a townhouse subdivision.

First time playing, pretty solid course, but the first few holes are set up silly and they were putter holes.

MBD is a nice little pitch and putt. Experienced golfers can easily play the short tee layout with just a putter and can probably do the same from the long tees. It's a fully decent course for beginners.

A nice pitch-n-putt type DG course with cement pads, 18 regulation baskets and even a few Long tees thrown in. Great course to work on your short game or even toss a few 1-2 disc rounds. Decent course flow with a mix of wide open shots and some wooded tunnel shots. Ideal park for a GLOW round at night. Could use some trash cans and a larger parking lot, but solid course none the less.

Enjoyable, and pretty easy. Nice for beginners, with a couple of more challenging lines through the woods. Especially on hole 7.

Mary Beth is a good beginner/practice/bring your girlfriend course. The course is overall pretty short but it does make pretty good use of what little elevation there is and there are some decent wooded holes. Some holes are pretty close together and it can get crazy with a lot of traffic. Enjoyable course overall

This is now one of my home course after moving in to Ann Arbor. The fact that they squeeze holes in here shows and is my only real complaint. Great course for beginners and anyone wanting to slam an ace. Hit one already in less then a year playing here. Some unique holes nothing real huge though shot wise. I had more chain outs here than any other course. Good park Togo if you have kids or love to walk nice and clean people out here are friendly. Bummer to read that they had problems during the install process. Good job anyways guys it's still a good little course. C U soon Browns! Thanks!

trash needs to be picked up and can emptied. A nice confidence booster course!. Not long, chance to use a variety of shots.

Very short and open first three holes, good ace opportunities, but more distance and variety later with some longer par 3s.

this is a good coarse for mid-range shots and maybe fairway drivers. It is a quick coarse if your going alone but have to keep track of your disc if it goes to the trees or in wide open ranges.

Course is ****!! no garbage cans anywhere and there is trash all over the place. Park is never kept up and today i found a bums cardboard house. Course is pretty easy but its a disgrace to look at. No park maintenance whatsoever. Cant ann arbor parks and recreation clean this up a bit and make it a decent course?

Comparing this course to the former course of Brown Park, this is quite an improvement. The fairways are decent; there are few places to end up in thorns; it's a nice short course. The tee pad for hole 14 is quite concealed, however, and there are still a couple of leftover tee pads from the old course. Aside from that, it's a great place to throw a practice round.

MBDP is nothing like it used to be and not to happy that they changed it. this course is not challenging and lot of the holes are way to close together tees next to baskets. feel free to put it back at any time.

I wish Terry's original design would have been implemented. Some decent holes scattered throughout. Woods holes are garbage. Speaking of garbage, it's all over the course, as the city of A2 doesn't provide trash cans. BROWN PARK!!!!!!

Great short course, really helps player to work on the short game. Course was a little confusing to navigate, but overall this is a perfect weeknight practice course.

A really fun glow course. Can be muddy and watch out for deer in the fall they were a little aggressive! People also say the layout isn't the greatest, i never knew the old brown park though.

Short holes compressed together. The course can be a little dangerous since a number of foot paths cross fairways and the tight layout can send errant throws into other fairways and putting areas. The course's shule is unnecessarily thick and I will spend more time looking for discs in bushes and grass than actually playing disc golf. Many people lose discs. All that being said, I keep going back as I am still a novice and as long as I don't lose a disc it plays quickly and most holes are fun and aceable.

Fun little short course... get some quick rounds in after work since its right around corner... kinda dangerous since a lot of holes cross but nice to post up some easy low scores

On the short side, and tight, easy to throw into other fairways and hit eachother. but nice set up through the woods.

I was involved in the clearing and design of this course although the course I was helping to design was never put in. Originally, there were 5 holes designed to go around the wetland (starting at the playground and working clockwise around the wetland) and the land where there is now 18 holes was to hold 13 holes. It would have been a fun course to play with enough challenge to get good players to want to play it. At the final hour ie when the cement trucks rolled up, the City of Ann Arbo ...

Short course with birdie and ace runs on many holes. Great beginner course. Layout leaves a bit to be desired, as there are multiple times that you are walking in the direct flight path on a hole's fairway. Fun to play and its still disc golf!

Mob Golf Talking Trash, Dirty Dollaz. Glow. Ace Races. Quick rounds after work. Beers with buddies. STALL shots. The return of a home course.

Abomination? definitely not. Brown Park? Oh yes. Welcome back old friend.

Who will design the gold layout??

adjacent to a newly dug sewage pond sandwiched in between impoverished hikone and mill creek developments, on the unkept outskirts of industrial ann arbor, this newly reopened course no longer appears to be as welcoming as it once was.
