Blue C line PD was left by hole 11 basket today while looking for orange x XL that went deep and left, name and number on both, reward for return.

Someone is going to get seriously hurt somewhere between 12 and 17 unless they make some changes. It's not a matter of if but when. Whoever said they should have used that bowl is right. Standing on 17 I just wanted to throw backwards into. Readymade hole right there.

Found a disc today while playing the new redesign. Found it on hole 3. Tell me what it is and I'll give it back to you.

Course update: 9-16-15 So i just got done playing a round on the newly redesigned course. The layout of the holes is as follows. Hole 1: Plays on the old hole 4. Tee pad is by the tree that was about half way down the old fairway. Same pin location. Hole 2: Plays off the old hole 5 tee pad. Pin is up hill and right after the gap. Hole 3: Tee pad is left of the tree gap from 2. Pin is in the location of old hole 5. Hole 4: Plays off the old hole 6 with the pad and pin in the same locations ... more

Well after playing the new lay out here is my comments. I am happy to have this course back but i do not care for the redesign. For starters you park in the same spot but you have to walk all the way down to old hole 4 to start. On hole 3 there is a storage shed you have to play around. On hole 4 there sits an old soccer net on the left of the fairway, its enough to get in your way. If this course were to get as busy as it used to than i see people getting hit with discs. Not intentionally or anything but there is a lot of overlapping fairways. There are also a lot of pins that sit within 10 feet or so from the next tees pad. The worst case is on hole 15. The layout stays the same but at the end of the bush lines where it breaks out to open fairway there sits holes 14 and 16 baskets. The baskets sit about 80 feet apart with 15 playing right between them. 15 drives almost right over 16 basket. Im not sure who headed up the redesign but i wish they would have utilized the land better. Im not sure why the land behind the new tennis courts with the large bowl shaped hill was not used. You can see the new hole 11 pin from there. They could have put 1 or 2 awesome signature holes right there. Anyway dont let me sway you, get out there and form your own opinion, just keep your head up.

Found this article. Says the course is completed and also says where to park. Looks like the course starts in a different area. https://www.oakland.edu/view_news.aspx?sid=34&nid=12400

Walked the course, and all 18 baskets are in again. Different layout, and not really sure just how it goes yet. Maybe basket/tee numbers to come? Also, not sure where to park - can park in the previous location, but a decent walk to even get to hole 16(?) and no real opening. Previous hole 4 looks to be hole 1 now? Course has been mowed, so possible to play. Let us know if you get more info.

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...

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.

Holy Oaks PDGA C/B tier at Addison Oaks this Saturday. Don't forget to preregister!!!
Tony Turner June 11 at 12:28pm
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.
