Course does not flow well, with "extra holes being added over the years to the original 18 hole layout. Extra signs would also be nice. Backtracking required to play all of the holes, and you won't find them all without help from a local.

Some of the signs are missing which makes it a little hard to navigate. Really fun course to play. The distance on the holes are nice. Still requires technical shots but also allows for big drives. Many ace opportunities!

I am a beginner disc golfer only one year into the sport. Irving park located near downtown Battle Creek,Michigan is the most used and popular disc golf course in Battle Creek. This 24 basket single cemented,rubber mat,and natural teepad par 72 disc golf course is placed in the intermediate division similar to Begg Park. Also another similarity to Begg Park is it is a variety course offering elevation,wooded holes,open holes,holes next to a road,and holes near water. Personally fairways next to roads are a pet peeve of mine as I find my disc is attracted to the road and finds its way into the road. This course also features what are called alternate holes. Instead of numbers, letters are used and some of the holes have teesigns and teepads some of them do not have teesigns and use natural teepads which are just land instead of a concrete or rubber mat. I like the fact this course allows you to choose if you want to golf 9,18, or 24 holes. This course starts fairly mild as holes one through six are 200 to 300 footers that are on flat land and have trees as obstacles. Then onto Alternate A and B, 7 alt C, and 8 that are uphill and downhill wooded shots one next to a road. Then hole 9 which plays over an abandoned basketball court. Holes 10 and 11 and alt E play in the woods then you come to holes 12 and 13 which play next to a pond. A pond that likes to suck in discs. I can imagine if this pond were to be pumped out there would be numerous discs in the bottom of it. Hole #13 is the course's signature hole and it is a very difficult hole as well. To the left is the pond and to the right is Emmett road so a very narrow strip of land sits in between the pond and road and you have to be very careful throwing your disc. On holes 12 and 13 it is recommended to throw a floating disc and carry a device that can retrieve discs. Emmett road is a busy road so you have to be careful your disc doesn't go in the road. Holes 13 and 14 are open shots. Hole 15 starts off as an open shot then the basket goes uphill and is into the woods again. The hills can be very steep here similar to Leila Arboretum. The rest of the course finishes off in in woods except hole #18 which starts in the woods and the basket is an open field next to hole #6. Footage distances range from the shortest being Alternate E at 80 feet to the longest Hole #6 at 360 feet. This course caters to all levels of disc golfing, is beginner friendly and intermediates and pros like the variety and challenge this course offers. All holes are par three. Leagues and tournaments are held here regularly and there are what are called "glow rounds" that are held are here as well which is disc golf played during the nighttime. A competition known as an "Ace Run" was held here in 2014 and I participated in it. It was fun as I never played one before it is a good way to practice and test techniques. This course offers a port-a-john as well. Things to be wary of when playing here similar to all courses that are in parks are non-disc golfers. For the most part they are out of the way but some of them like to walk or ride their bicycles on the cemented pathways that go all through the park. The best of example is on hole number two. The teepad is off to the right of a cemented pathway and their are trees right in front of you blocking your view of the pathway. You should either have a spotter looking ahead or if your by yourself make sure to look and check and see if there is anyone coming as this could be dangerous. As previously mentioned some of the holes are alongside a road. Holes 4,Alt C,and 13 are alongside a road. Busy roads at that so be careful where your throwing. Some of the holes are missing a teesign as I can imagine they are vandalized. Trash and empty bottles can be a problem here as well. I can only thing of one thing that could make this course better is a map of it! If you want to play all 24 holes you either got to be could at exploring or know someone who knows this course or you are not going to find all 24 holes. I have been told to be wary of holes 10 and 17 which are right next to each other and go down hill and their baskets are somewhat in front of another pond that is on the property of Irving Park. From what I have been told golfers who have sharp accurate throwing arms have put their discs into this pond. You would have to be an excellent and accurate golfer to do so. Also the cemented teepads are small and they are elevated above the ground so be wary of your footing. If you are in the area make sure to stop and give Irving Park a try! Update! This course has three new holes and they all go over a pond. I will updating my pictures towards the middle of this year.

Free park. 24 Holes here now so it is easy to be here for longer than you've expected. Lots of safari possibilities. Apparently there is an extended 18 hole layout also. Making some holes 500'-600'. Disc King baskets sound funny when they catch. Some Chainstars here on the extra holes. Really there is a nice variety with a good righty/lefty mix and sometimes adding extreme elevation. After long deliberation I think this course is turning out to be a good one. Needs more/better signage.

The layout for the original 18 is not too bad but the main issue I have with the course is that the property the course is on was not utilized well at all. A massive pond with plenty of fun shots has no pins on its edges, no throws over water. Holes seem to just be randomly strewn about, especially the first 5 holes and 12-15. I would rate this course higher if the land was used better, more use of elevation, better pin placements (more difficult), improvement of the tees, etc. The new 6 holes a ...

All other alts significantly favor forehand throwers :( and have ridiculously poor lines.

Fun course that starts in the open, moves to more elevation holes and woods. Swamp and water comes into play on a few holes too. Good time to shoot some plastic! If you are in the Battle creek area, stop over and get a round in.
