I just re-visited this course for the first time since 2005 the other day. Man, this course has HUGE potential. Throw in some baskets and tee pads and maybe do a few tweeks, then we have one of the best courses around! Lots of hills too, Wear pants and/or long socks with shorts.

Johnson park is mainly a pole hole course now, after baskets were stolen years ago. The land is great and the design uses it to it to make some really fun holes. Tee pads are now mostly natural with some just totally sand and hard to run up to. Fairways mostly look like they are mowed once a month or less. Have some water and bug spray with when playing in spring or summer. There are some awesome hills at Johnson, so you get to shoot big downhill bombs, down and up, big uphill shots, trees ...

Add baskets and pads and this is the best course in GR.

Ive only played here once and we had 18 baskets put in longer alt spots then the originals. Awesome course! A lot of ankle high thorn bushes though. I give it a A based on the way it was when i played it.

This is my favorite course around GR. If it had baskets and pads, I'm sure it would soon become a favorite of many more people. Great quiet and open space.

My son and I wanted to play a new course so we ventured to Johnson. Lots of potential with huge hills and a lot of land to use. We got lost a couple of times since all the signs are faded or broken. We were very surprised by all the great terrain and will play it again when things are updated a bit. My son thinks it is the best pole hole course he has ever played.

This course was the first one I played back in 1999(I was 8 years old). Last fall Tyler Frisbie and I hit up the course. It was a blast from the past. The constant elevation change makes for a challenging course. It felt really old school hitting the posts. This would be an +A course if it had baskets and better tees.

Really loved the lay out and realizing the long history and considering the work of thievery, I would most for sure put weighted grade. Loved the elevation play and will defiantly go back.

This is where I cut my disc golf teeth. I miss the baskets, wish the county would buy more, and that people wouldn't steal them. One of the best parks I've played. Posts aren't the same, but still a great park right after a mowing and on a cooler day.

Kroll Layout, Temp Baskets, Blustery Winter day, beautiful views, elevation/ wind/ trees. Great practice course for most shots. Huge potential for larger holes. Worth playing.

Went out with a group on league day and set up baskets. Played a slightly different course that the post layout but course property and landscape is great. Wish baskets and pads were in because it really could b a great course Grand Rapids desperately needs.

Not well kept in any way, spent more time chasing discs in the long (waist high) grass then we did shooting. 13-15 are unplayable with the overgrowth

Hated this course. It really has so much potential! The "fairways" are knee high weeds, and its very easy to loose a disc. I left with cuts all over my legs and most likely poison ivy. I do not plan on coming back.

First course I ever played. Baskets were stolen a decade ago. Used to be a fun little beginner course. A proposal for a new 36 hole course was shot down.

Old style (post) no baskets. Need to be part Ibex to play here. Played in spring before grass, insects and poison Ivy started. Would not play in warm weather. Will not be back.
