Good course with LOTS of variety. This course will definitly test your arsenal but no big open holes, just lots of tight, tough lines.

Newaygo State park does have some fun holes and there are plenty of birdie opportunities. Almost every hole has very rough areas that can add strokes easily if you get off the fairway. There are a few holes that do not follow the flight path of a disc and a shorter placement shot is required to get a par. 18 is just a silly hole in my opinion and something else should have been done. Some tee pads are not facing down the fairways of holes the way they could have been placed. If you are in t ...

If you have to play one in the area, to Branstrom, Flip City or Big Bend park over Newaygo though.

Unlike the description says. None of the holes resemble Leviathan, none of the holes resemble Beauty, and its much easier than Cold Brook. Too many holes with the same layout. More like a flat, tightly wooded JC Park if anything. Not a big fan of this course. Worth it if youre passing through, but definitely not worth the trip if you arent.

Great course to enjoy a few rounds. Not too difficult and fairly flat. Slight elevation changes toward the pins on a couple of holes.

It's a very clean course - the fairways are well kept and the rough is very defined and thick. It's $5 per car when a ranger is at the station... There's also weekly leagues during the summer. It's a very short course. Too many short holes keep the course from a better rating. That said, the course is still very challenging as many of the fairways are tight and splattered with many large and small well placed trees. There's nothing more frustrating than taking a 4 on a hole only 230 long. If you ...

It's a very clean course - the fairways are well kept and the rough is very defined and thick. It's $5 per car when a ranger is at the station... There's also weekly leagues during the summer. It's a very short course. Too many short holes keep the course from a better rating. That said, the course is still very challenging as many of the fairways are tight and splattered with many large and small well placed trees. There's nothing more frustrating than taking a 4 on a hole only 230 long. If you're a seasoned player, you'll play it twice and expect to shoot a low second round, but you might be annoyed with the complexity of some of the short range shots. I think emotional outlook plays a big role in my game and I am sure that there's a significant mental game at Newaygo. I recommend it, especially for developing upshots and putting. There are two holes (8 & 18) that require distance and skill to get out in three strokes or better. There's also a small store on the grounds that, when open, sells drinks, snacks and occassionally discs. There's an outhouse in the parking lot. There are coffee cans at the base of many sign posts for cigarette butts and small trash. There are a good number of benches, some of which have great scenic overviews of Hardy Dam Pond. You can even see Big Bend Park across the water (another disc golf course!) and since there's camping at both locations, you could actually bring your boat and play both courses as a disc vacation! Very cool! Also neat is that many of the tee pads are repurposed cement that was a part of a nearby boat launch! (They're quite grippy and reliable.) There are signs that note the general line and distance of each hole clearly and they are out of the way of teepad run-ups. A severe storm nearly destroyed this course last summer. Only recently were the many, many fallen trees cleared. The course suffered a big loss in lumber, some of which was harvested just to get equipment in. Overall though, the course plays about the same as before the storm. The most noticeable difference was the lack of shade.

So much fun! This course was one of the most enjoyable courses I've played. The holes were quite unique but not un-godly hard. It pushes you to toss consistently with every shot making you an all around better player. Plus like I said it's A LOT of fun.

This course is surprisingly difficult for how short the holes are. Though most holes are less than 300 feet, the angles are sharp and the rough is rough. Holes 1 and 3 give a false sense of security, with short straight fairways, while holes like 8 and 18 leave you happy with a bogey. The numerous ace and birdie opportunities make this course fun, while the tight narrow fairways and thick rough make it a challenge.

Nothing special here. Has a few nice hole, but the rest is pretty redundant. Not a physical course, and doesn't take a whole lot of time to play. Check it out if you're in the area.

Nice short , technical course does not favor L or R handers. Very tight and brutal rough. Centered around a campground although the sites don't present any problem. Could use a little clean up as the state seems to have forgotten to pick up all the downed tree trimmings rendering it a little rough.

Good course. Like the variety of where the pins are placed. Definitely needs the backhoe that made them trenches back out there to clean up all the debris piles and such, out. Awesome view of the lake/ river on a couple holes. Hole 18 is crap and it made me leave unhappy. I dislike a course a little more when the last hole is hard to par let alone birdie. All and all I liked the course nice and peaceful. But there are almost always them people/ kids on trails or by baskets and don't have a clue what discing is. Just glad I didn't smoke any of them with a disc.

i mean, who on earth lays out a hole like 18? was the inspiration a "?" if so, mission accomplished. i enjoyed a few holes, but the back to back C shaped holes and ridiculous lines some of the holes had... meh. never touched a single drive in my bag either. mostly a drone, zone, meteor, challenger on every hole. i get that you might be trying to bring some technical shots where distance is lacking, but when i have to walk around a C curve to damn near 30 ft from the pin, just to see where I'm shooting at... it gets a tad bit old.
