Tee boxes get a little sandy. Nice course. Beware of the disc eating ravine

Heard it was a good course so we went out to try it. If you like a VERY rustic course than this is one for you! We weren't necessarily looking for manicured grounds and I saw that there was construction going on which had some effect hole #1 & 18 but a little better grooming throughout most of the course would be really nice. At times it almost felt more like we were on a scavenger hunt when moving between holes because there wasn't any directional signage except for painted rocks on the ...

Not a bad course, raised wooden tee boxes with rubber padding on them. They tee boxes could stand to be a little longer for the multi step drivers. Course is well layed out with great markers and direction to the next hole and not too bad elevation change with a fair amount of trees. The course has great diversity with long and short holes, ranging from 150's to the 300 or 400's

Great Course! The thing I love the most about this course, is that every hole is completely different from the next. There are holes in the woods, downhill, uphill, around trees, straight on, and tons more! This course never gets old either, and thats one thing that is different from about this course compared to others. One of my favorites. Extremely recomended!!! A-

First time on the course, it was pretty nice. Needs Longer tee pads, I fell off a couple of times.

Small, technical, variations in elevation...enjoyed the course i. Wish it was closer. Tough on a first time solo trip as there are lots of blind holes, even the short ones! Also lots of anhyzer shots, both long and short. Would love to see concrete pads put in, with short and long tee positions. Also, keep out of the ravine!

Nothing too special about OU. Shorter course but has some nice elevation changes to make up for it. A little confusing to navigate but there are painted rocks to guide you around the pathways to the next tee.

I'd consider myself a beginner and this course can be challenging. Mostly just because it is in some deep woods. On most of the holes if you don't land on the fairway then your disc is gone. However, most holes are pretty short and simple. Oh, and they finally cut the grass! ^_^

too difficult for an avid-non-pro player like myself. anything put in a less-than-perfect spot was either too difficult to shoot or lost.

Course was all right. No water and not a lot of elevation other than the unofficial "long" tee for hole 1. Lots of scrub brush.

I really like this course, and it's fantastically laid out for a college campus. Many trees and wooded areas, lots of long holes but a couple of short as well. Several are blind, but work really well for a right handed side arm chucker like myself. This course has a nice practice basket and field for warming up, and is really very clean and well maintained for (again) being on a college campus. A- and I'm liking it more every time I play it.

I like the course. Wish it had cement tee-pads and some better signage. It is funny when someone gives a course a D or F the number of negative votes the review gets. Never knew disc golfers had glass chins.

The OU course is rarely if ever crowded. There are virtually no water hazards, save for the hole 12 ravine off to the left, though I've never seen it more than ankle deep. There is some thick brush but only a few thorn bushes, most of the brush is easy to comb through. I've noticed that the mosquitoes here are pretty light; I'm writing this review after a round at OU on almost an 80 degree day in May, where I used NO bug spray and was sweating, and it was 8:30 in the evening, and I got zero bite ...

Some great shots and challenging tee shots, but never groomed or upkept. some holes the rough is rough! Hole one is always changing due to construction around the course. Fun quick round and never that busy. Easy to shoot under par, but easy to shoot over as well.

Good layout for much of the course. The first tee pad is a disgrace and needs to be redone. Also, the landscaping needs work, too much weeds and tall grass.

This course needs some fine turning on lines to the baskets and some of the tee pads placements our bad! Not thought out very well in some spots of the course. There are lots of unrealistic line to try an hit with a small window of opportunity. There some natural flow to this course but it slams into a wall at one point can't remember the hole. There are some good points about it though lots of friendly people some of the elevations were cool and like the way a few holes fairways dogged! Has lot ...

maybe its just my one round so please TAKE THIS REVIEW W A GRAIN OF SALT... i hated this course. the first hole you walk up and its just like, for real? what is it? 75 ft from the tee pad? the first few holes are chinsee. then you get through the first few and its rough city... im not the best player in the world, but i can play an entire round at stoney and never come out of the fairway... between my self and my room mate, we got annoyed by hole 15 and left. i vowed never to waste my time ...

First time playing this course today. It's not fun if you're just learning Disc Golf and you're still refining your technique. I've been playing for a couple months now and I found this course to be quite horrible. The first hole catches you off-guard because it's only about 100ft from the tee. The 2nd hole gets you worried if you're right-handed because you can veer off to the left and on to the street below the hill. Holes 3-10 are pretty good with not too much difficulty. I did like the ...

Oakland University plays home to Grizzly Oaks Disc Golf Course. You may have heard rumors that this course is going to be pulled to make room for more housing or other building of that ilk. These rumors are unfounded and false. Grizzly Oaks is here to stay. The course if very well balanced in terms of "righty" vs. "lefty" holes, although if your a righty backhand player you will feel its has a lefty bias. Holes 1 and 18 are currently shortened due to dirt storage from other construction on ca ...
