Permanent signs coming soon, and the pars have been adjusted - par 69 playing 19, par 72 adding the 'warm-up hole' between #2 & #3 (#2.5). Course just got 2 more good sponsors, so we've got funds for a couple stairways & 'bridges' over a couple ravines and swampy areas - cool!

Hey Ric, give me a time and date for some work bees, I'll round a crew up to help. You guys got a really good thing going over there, love the course so far.

Ric Evans   October 21 at 10:02am

Thanks a ton Jason - will do - really looking forward to getting that place really dialed for next year! Cheers!

Have all the teepads been finished and cemented?

Dave Maddox   August 14 at 2:27am

as of monday morning, no.....most are finished though. i think the #7 short still needed installed and a few were just sand (for now). but over all its totally playable, as tricky as it is

Dave Maddox   August 14 at 3:03am

pretty sure the guys put most if their time this werk into the petoskey course. lots of work, but they're both gonna be awesome once finished!

Ric Evans   August 14 at 7:17am

All the tee that are going to have crete are finished, but there are several (#'s 5L, 5S, 7S, 8L, 9L, 9S, 10L & 12L) that are still sand/dirt. They will eventually be either filled with diamond dust, or decking with carpet, and hopefully a few more will get done by this weekends tournament. But as Dave mentioned, lots of tee work on River Road in Petoskey this & last week.

Thanks SO much guys - you certainly know how much goes into a course like that, so we appreciate the kudos, and a bit of patience! Looking forward to playing it more, and working on it less! Thanks again for the feedback!

steve nolff    March 18, 2013 at 1:05pm

Great, thanks for the info Ben. It sounds like I will be up that way a couple times this year. I will check it out.


Ben Tschudy    March 12, 2013 at 10:22am

Hi Steve, although I haven't played it yet, I know that Ric Evans and several others put many hours into reworking and re-opening it last year. It's part of the Northern Waters Series this year. Not sure if baskets are in all year. Hope this helps. Enjoy!

Is this course open again? I played at a Mt McSauba ski hill some years back. Tough course on a ski hill then. I had heard a local sheriff lived on or within eyesight of the old course and did not like the clientale our game was bringing in. If someone knows about this course, drop some info on us.
