Found a factory dyed disc on 20. It could have been an over throw from 19 that landed down the run.
No ink.

We had a tournament there this weekend. I've re-posted this message there. Tilley's Party Store has a lost-and-found if you would like to drop it off there.

Has anyone played in the last few days? I'm out here for a few weeks and was just wondering how the bugs are out there, also how are the surrounding courses as well, any hometown info about the courses out here would help greatly!!! Looking to play as much around here as I can but don't really wanna battle the bugs!

Greg Argyle   June 12 at 11:05pm

Play here in the morning - gets busier throughout the day

Also, if there are deerfly put a bounce dryer sheet on your hat if you wear one it will keep the deer fly away it looks a little silly but it works

Lost my gbo bio fuzion sheriff, pink on the left side of 19. I can ID the stamp type and color. Hopefully it'll end up at Tilley's!? I'm not local but will be back next month. Really want this one back

Marc Hamlin - Team Tilley's   May 29 at 12:37pm

We'll keep an eye out tonight at our league there.

Lost 12x *Wraith somewhere on 24, iit was a gift from my Aunt and has her name on the bottom (Jane Bennett). It's standard weight, bright orange and a foil stamp! Would be so excited to have it returned! I have been checking in at Tilleys, but no luck so far... thanks friends!


Jake Messner    April 4 at 10:33pm

Found a disc on hole 14 today with no name or number. Name the disc and color and I'll get it back to you.

Greg Argyle   April 5 at 10:12am

Tilley's Party Store down the road from Hickory has bins with found discs. Common practice is to drop them off there as lots of people check to see if their discs have been turned in

Jake Messner   April 5 at 10:59am

Alright cool, I'll bring it with me next time I'm there or play Hickory.

Craig Compton    April 3 at 11:49am

Thought I heard that baskets went in on Saturday? Is this true? We are planning a disc golf trip for this weekend, and want to hit Hickory. Thanks

Marc Hamlin - Team Tilley's   April 3 at 12:00pm

All 24 baskets are in.

Craig Compton   April 4 at 9:14am

Awesome. Cant wait to play it this weekend. Thanks Marc!

Evan V    March 24 at 2:38pm

Are the baskets in for the year?

Greg Argyle   March 24 at 2:41pm

First 6 are. Rest will go in mid April

Evan V   March 24 at 2:47pm

Awesome! Thanks for the quick response. Up here for the weekend and looking to get a quick round in.

Greg Argyle   March 24 at 3:30pm

Baskets are in all year at Kingsley Civic Center South and Myles Kimmerly Park (Maple City)

Dave Milewski    February 21 at 2:52pm

Safe to assume the majority of the buckets are still pulled? Any other local course conditions good enough for playing? Headed up this weekend. Thanks

Much appreciated, thanks!

Matthew Bloom   February 22 at 7:54am

Definitely Kingsley, there's like no snow there expect a little in the woods

Uncle Todd-CJLP President "Disc Golf Course Design"   February 23 at 9:33am

Terrace Park too

Tim Kopacz    December 8 at 9:18am

Looks like Traverse City requested $199,000 for Phase 1 improvements to Hickory Hills. The MIDNR grant application scored 300 out of 530 possible points (highest applicant received 450 pts). What's in store for disc golf in this plan?

My involvement with the committee is to make sure the new bike and ski trails don't create any conflicts with disc golf that would result in unsafe conditions.

Benny G.   December 9 at 5:02am


Tim Kopacz   December 9 at 6:39pm

Sounds like some good news! Albeit a bit of politics, but all you involved for the greater good know thats a given. Keep up the good work!

Marc Hamlin - Team Tilley's    December 3 at 7:08pm

The Hickory Baskets (#7-#24) are coming out tomorrow at 10am. If anyone has a pickup truck and an hour to spare, we could really use the help.


Dave Barker    November 23 at 3:45pm

Not winter time yet is it....?
Says "No winter play."

Holes 1-6 are actually left in the ground all year. It's only the holes that interfere with the Skiing operations that need to be pulled. Finishing at 6 leaves you with a long walk back to the parking lot, but it's better than nothing.

Jeff Hulet   November 27 at 1:47pm

Finishing at 13 does too. I leaved that back in August... LOL!

Dave Barker   November 28 at 7:10pm

Thanks for info, Marc. Was in TC area for a couple days, wanted to make it over to Hickory. Good to know part is open in winter (maybe back yet this winter). Thanks for what you do to have the course there. Hey, if you have any say at Tillies, tell them they should have some souvenir disc for us tou ... more

Rick "Rightfield" Mol    November 18 at 9:43am

Ok and for today I lost a Roc3.... overthrew my upshot on nine so it should just be sitting in the leaves but I couldn't find it. It is a white glow Roc 3 with big GV stamp.


Rick "Rightfield" Mol    November 17 at 7:46pm

Lost my yellow Teedevil to the left off 19. I would estimate I was close to 50% down. I appreciate any news of it. Stamp is all worn off.


Uncle Todd-CJLP President "Disc Golf Course Design"    November 9 at 7:21pm

Dylan Devriendt    November 5 at 8:21pm

Lost a bright green esp buzz has my name and number on it. Would really appreciate some snagging it for me if they see it. Thanks.

Jeff Hulet   November 6 at 2:38pm

What hole was it near?

Dylan Devriendt   November 6 at 7:49pm

Some where between 16 and 19. I just left it sitting and forgot to grab it. Didnt realize it until after 19.

Joseph Hefler IV    October 4 at 12:48pm

I am from Cleveland, just in town a few days, and will be going to play a practice round today. I will check again if anyone's interested in joining. I should be there around 5pm. It would be helpful to go with someone else since I am not familiar with the course. Thanks!!

I agree, the course is well "mapped" out. But don't get there late in the day, because I found a few weeks ago it was a Long walk out in the dark. I only made it to hole 13 and igot dark on me. Course is also hilly, so you will get a lot of exercise walking up and down hill. :)

Joseph Hefler IV   October 4 at 4:19pm

Thanks Guys, leaving in a few if anyone see's this. Trying to beat the ran expected in the next few days. If it doesn't rain tomorrow I'll be going somewhere. You can email me at [email redacted] if you want to meet up but the earliest I'll hit any course is 5pm. Appreciate it!!

Joseph Hefler IV   October 5 at 3:39pm

I lost my Champion Boss on Hole 19. It went into the tops of the trees about 450 - 500 ft to the left. I did hear it hit a tree pretty solid but never found it. Since I'm leaving tomorrow just letting you know it's finders keepers. But please take care of her, she was my first disc I ever purchased. Also one of my favorite drivers.

John Clark    July 26, 2016 at 2:06am

I played this on Saturday the 16th for 4 hours with 5 people I met outside Tilley's. I had so much fun. We played doubles and closest hole. I was by far the most inexperienced of the group. My partner Wayne, whose birthday it was, really had some great shots. I witnessed a throw of 658 feet I believe that set right next to the basket. Missy, her son and the 2 other "K's" were very experienced yet quite encouraging. This year my wife got me a practise basket and I am dedicating time to developing my throws at home. I loved this course but far from home it is.


Michael Emerick    July 25, 2016 at 2:17pm

For those not attending Ledgestone, $2,500 added to Pro purse



Andrew LaCross    July 5, 2016 at 2:51am

If any locals are looking to get a round in tomorrow morning shoot me a text 2484671671... not too much fun to crush hickory alone. Holler


Russell Wixom    July 2, 2016 at 3:53pm

il be up there next week end and was wondering, is there any water holes on this course?

Scott "Jammer" Gross "Team Tilley's"   July 2, 2016 at 12:40pm

no, just a creek on a couple of holes

Russell Wixom   July 2, 2016 at 1:24pm

k thanks

Marc Hamlin - Team Tilley's   July 4, 2016 at 1:22pm

Really small creeks on #20 (left side), and #24 (right side).
