Is the course dry enough to play today? Thinking of heading out to play a round.

Matt J   September 28 at 8:34am

Ya man, played yesterday, it was nice. bring a bit of bug spray... Should be a nice day

Paul Bunko   September 28 at 8:42am

Thanks. Now it is time to get everyone motivated.

Matt J   September 28 at 9:09am

Lost a blue team stony boss on hole 26 think it went in the water pay for it back if found

Absolutely one of the worst courses I've ever played. Me and Adam hit it up last night for the first time and it sucks. There is no direction to the next hole and the teepads are old and worn, which some are not even there. Was very confusing and I don't even think we played a full 18 holes cause we had no idea where to go. Would not recommend this course to anyone that has not played it before. Some holes were ok but I give it an overall rating of "D".

Good god the mosquitos are insane currently. Worst I have ever experienced them while playing here. The course is having a real hard time drying out it looks like so there is a lot of water underneath the long grass. Bring ample bug spray and strong stuff at that. Even with 3 spraying I was still being bit some and most definitely hounded with them hovering around. Standing still for longer than 3 seconds brought swarms upon us. However, with the new holes finished and the pads in place the ... more

Much obliged! Will plan accordingly.

Derek Tzay   September 8 at 5:55pm

wait a minute... the long river shot is gone?! the 450+ one isn't there? that was one of my fav holes there

Brandon"RedRum" Redmond   September 8 at 9:17pm

For the moment yes. shelby Twp is looking to stop some of the river erosion. The river has widened considerably and I think the bridge is going to start becoming an issue. so for the time being, that shot is out. I do think John is looking to keep it though just don't know the ins and outs.

Steven Welch    August 29 at 2:47pm

I left a DX polecat out there yesterday. Would like it back if possible.
