course update - Thanks go out to the City of AuGres for providing a Porta John to the course. Keep it free from destruction and remember, the $$$ donations are paying the way for improvements.

May 26 course update - ALL fairways were cut and trimmed this past weekend. Holes 1 & 2 are a little soggy, especially after a rain but regardless, all 20 holes are awaiting more players. The course is getting the attention it deserves with Ron estimating 40 vehicles visiting over a 2 day period when he was cutting. Of those he spoke to, nearly all were visiting from some distance. Play it, Review it, donate for tee pads. Thanks.

Old Airport Disc Golf Course - AuGres, Michigan
MAY 9th, 2015 --- course is dry and ready to play. Even better yet, the course and Ron are READY for some volunteer help. Raking, cleaning and getting it all set for the first mowing. Let Ron know or send me a message to arrange a time...

April 12th - COURSE CONDITION UPDATE - The course is in flood conditions - you should all wait to play until the rain stops and we have some good sun and wind.
Craig Prime March 27 at 10:19am
Spring course conditions remain wet with holes 1 & 2 nearly flooded and hole 3 having standing water near the basket. The wooded holes will most likely have wet areas developing as the final traces of snow leave with more rain (hopefully no more snow). There were players out this past week so it is playable but only for those that want to weave their way through the playable holes or standing water... Visit Old Airport DGC soon.

I will be spending the weekend in Oscoda and plan on stopping by this course on my way home on Sunday. If there is a local who wants to play a round with me so i can have a guide that would be great. Im not sure what time i will be passing through but we can figure that out latter.

I believe my Gf Stevi and i played with you and Ron mid summer 3 yrs ago, course looks asome i wanted to donate some money but had no cash on me, but we had a great time! Thanks for all the hard work and tell Ron i let out some howls for him!

As of August, 2014 the grass fairways have been well groomed several times and wooded hole fairways are quite clear of everything aside from the remaining stumps and toe stubs. Be careful and when playing, feel free to pick up some sticks, tossing them as far off the fairways as possible. The donations raised for tee pads is nearing $500.00, any predictions on when they'll start going in ?
Craig Prime June 30, 2014 at 3:51pm
new tee signs and arrows pointing players to the next tee were installed last weekend, although how Ron keeps the course cut, it's easy to follow. enjoy the course

Ill be playing here on the 6th, not sure of a tee time yet but all are welcome to join
Craig Prime June 30, 2014 at 8:18am
this course is worth the journey. natural tee pads and no elevation but aside from that, the course is very unique and first class.
Craig Prime June 3, 2014 at 6:17am
course UPDATE - June 1st and the course was freshly cut through hole Nine. The wooded holes are still needing some weed whacking throughout the fairways but it is VERY playable. Grounds Keeper Ron says that holes 1 - 9 are Whimbledon quality (if tennis can equate to disc golf) . Bring your bug spray, the skeeters will carry you away once in the woods.
Josh Morrison May 19, 2014 at 10:32pm
Played decent today on 17 holes. The entrance is pretty muddy. Holes 1 and 2 are pretty wet and unplayable. Hole 3 has a bit of water down the fairway but is playable. Holes 4-16 are pretty decent. Holes 17, 18, and 19 have a couple puddles but are playable. Hole 20 is unplayable. It looks like more rain may be on the way though!

Old Airport Disc Golf Course - AuGres, Michigan has posted "NO DISC GOLF" throughout rifle deer season. Be careful players, stay clear. This land has a history of seeing hunters; if not within, often very near some of the holes. The best idea is to not play when there is a chance that a scope may be aiming somewhere near you or your disc.

message from Ron (course designer, guru, protector and old hippie dude that likes to howl).
"whaoooooooooooooooo, ooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwahhhhhhhhh ! I Love You All, keep coming to Old Airport Disc Golf Course - AuGres, Michigan. I'm the tall guy usually on a tractor, running a weed whacker, chain saw or just walking around howling a bit. I'm sure we'll have a chat and I am looking forward to it. I hope you'll love the course".

Grand Opening planned Monday, September 23rd at 5:00 prior to the City of AuGres's monthly council meeting. It would be great to have as many disc golfer show up as possible to demo some of your championship level skills. The city manager told me that they are planning on having some hot dogs on hand and may take a walking tour around some of the course. Plan on a random draw doubles round, probably starting by 6:00. call me with any questions, donations or if anyone wants to carpool.

In planning a vacation to Tawas Point State Park last week, I called East Tawas Chamber of Commerce to ask if there was a local disc golf course.

In planning a vacation to Tawas Point State Park last week, I called East Tawas Chamber of Commerce to ask if there was a local disc golf course. The very nice woman on the phone responded by asking "what is disc golf?" Fortunately, a friend recommended this website and I found this fantastic course: Old Airport DGC in Au Gras. Someone has put in ALLOT of TLC to grooming, marking and the overall layout of this course. It has a great mix of short dog legs, rolling meadows (not unlike Scottish links), fairways lined with pines, a couple monster holes (580 and 600+), and then into the woods, challenging (but par-able) wooded holes with trampled down roughs easy to find the all-to-often errant disc. Very versatile design, with everything except water. New baskets (not poles anymore like some of the older posts state) and very clearly marked (albeit with temporary wood stakes and ribbon, but extremely easy to follow and flows well). So thank you to all the hard working people who have put in so much obvious effort to make this an awesome course!!! Thanks! (Maybe give that lady in East Tawas chamber of commerce an intro) Thanks again and God bless. -Rory from Pinckney/Brighton. [email redacted].
