Thanks

Confirmed today: The same 13 or 14(?) holes are there - no new holes yet or signs of where the new ones will be..

Jeff Novak   July 22 at 4:38pm

Roger that. I was going to check it out today but will wait for the other 5 to go in. Hope it doesn't take too long.

Course update as of 6-12-15: Most baskets are in at OU. Someone at the school said they are working on 5 holes that are not ready yet. Course is open but not very playable as of 6-12-15 due to being extremely overgrown. Grass is knee / waist-high through the whole course. Tee pads look phenomenal - they're rubberized with running track material and in very good shape. Baskets are A+, newer Chainstars(?), ready to get smashed as soon as the school cuts the grass and makes the course playable. Can't wait...

You know it!!

Miles Lawrence "MMDGC"   June 19 at 4:12pm

I walked the course yesterday. (didnt know you made this post). Holes 1-3, 17&18 are no longer there. Hole 4s tee pad is about mid way down the fairway of what was the old layout. Hole 5s basket was removed but i draged an extra one laying on the ground over, hole is shorter now. Hole 6s tee pad ... more

So is this course actually up yet? and where is located now, last summer I would drive around campus not seeing anything and always was told to go back into this dead end past a huge open field/hill that seemed to be under construction.

From the tennis courts on the Upper Fields, head towards the big shot put net (?) and into the woods. You'll see a basket from the hill before you go down there, not cemented yet. I'm not sure where the course starts..

Marcus VanPoppelen   June 18 at 11:24am

Great, thanks for all the information!

Just checked, and the Oakland U website states "Disc Golf Course: closed due for course redesign and development until Mid to Late Summer 2015". So it looks like we should get this little gem back yet this year! I work close by, and so play a round during lunch sometimes. Shoot me a line if you want to meet up for a round.

I'm not sure what their plans are for the baskets but I know they can be used elsewhere. Civic Center could also use new baskets and it's right around the corner. We have also been working on remolding that course.

Jeff Novak   June 8 at 10:25pm

Josh Hewitt posted a quote from the director back in March that the course should be back up by mid-summer. You can read it on Oakland U. course page under comments. I'll stay hopeful.

Miles Lawrence "MMDGC"   June 8 at 11:04pm

I just wish I could play hole 4 again, or the original hole 18, or hole 5, and 7. Oh hell who am I kidding I loved that course. Hope it comes back too.

Just The Tim    May 11 at 6:30pm

Eric Dusten   September 24 at 1:15pm

I agree!!! any word anyone? have they broke ground??

Josh Hewitt   September 30 at 3:30pm

I went out and walked the course last weekend... It does not look like this course will be back until spring of next year at the earliest :( They might have to create 3-4 new holes just to accommodate the amount of land that was taken up by the new sports fields they installed.

Anyone know who is putting this course back together? I'd like to volunteer to help clean up or anything to help. Loved this course because of the convenience of where it is at in relation to where I live. So I want to help if needed. Any information please pass it on.
There is tons of land around they could make this course amazing with proper placement of holes. Hole 10 was my favorite!!! This courses signature hole. I hope they keep it.

Just started getting into disc golf. I'm an OU student, so naturally I checked out Grizzly Oaks today. What a shame! The place looks like it was left for the woods to reclaim...

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll scope those locations out. I've only played OU and Firefighters Park so far.

Jeff Novak   July 25, 2013 at 1:33pm

Are all baskets pulled at OU?

Jason Harris   July 25, 2013 at 3:44pm

Nope. They're still there. Maybe not all 18... I'm not sure, because yesterday was my first time playing the course and somehow I missed 4 baskets. But that's probably because it's a confusing layout, and I didn't look that hard...
