Hats off to the new design. I was very impressed . I was at Ferris in 2006 and this course was my home course for 5/6 yrs.. loved it then and the addition just made me fall in love with it even more. Great to see some distance added to it. The new hole 3 LOVE!!!! Also added some nice ace runs. Was able to utilize backhand and side arm, with some tommys.. wind defffff played a factor this weekend lol it is always a pleasure to visit, this course is worth the 3 hr drive. Will be back real soon.

Yes, we have a random draw doubles league that plays on Sundays at noon. Leonard is usually around for that. You're welcome to join anytime. You can usually get a reply over on FB in the (private) group Big Rapids DG for current league info, etc.

Left a white DX roc with a bulldog on the front on hole 10 in the dark last night. Will pay good money for its return

Fred Britton Jr.   May 26, 2016 at 12:14am

I gotta get back up there to play Northend

Foster N.    November 9, 2015 at 2:46am

Lost my pink star destroyer on #12 today - it turned over on a forehand drive heading into the rough on the left about 275 feet off the tee. If anyone finds it, I'll make it worth while for its return.

In case you haven't heard, there's big stuff happening at Northend starting this year. As President of Big Rapids Disc Golf Club, I'm very pleased to announce that we're underway designing and cutting in 18 new fairways to compliment the original 18, for a total of 36 holes. There will be (2) distinct 18 hole loops, as well as a 36 hole loop and a few other short options, too.

We've started a crowdfunding page to help pay for baskets. You can chip in a few bucks here: . Happy Discing!

Lost my favorite disc - a lime green Star Wraith on hole 1 this last Saturday. I traded for it so it doesn't have my name on it, but it does have my PDGA number #69340. Any help??

Foster N.   August 27, 2015 at 5:07pm

Green discs are evil! Good chance it's in a tree, but I'll keep my eyes out for it.

Justin N    June 1, 2015 at 1:40am

Found a disc on hole six. No name or number. Comment what kind if you believe it is yours.


Matt Oller    September 15, 2014 at 3:07pm

Looking to play a round here wednesday pm around 6:00, I would love to shoot with someone. Message me if your looking to play.


Jeff Montney    September 15, 2014 at 6:18am

Lost a gold TI Nuke SS on number 8 from the longs a few weeks ago. Grip locked a forehand shot and it ended up going somewhere on the right side either in the woods or could have also ended up near what I believe is 14's basket or 15's fairway. I would love to get this disc back as I just started throwing it and was just getting used to it. I don't have much to offer but if returned, I will compensate one way or another. 586-747-7654


Foster N.    April 2, 2014 at 1:39am

Lost my Red/Pink Elite Z Flash on #4. My name and phone number are on the back along with a bunch of little heats. I'm offering a $20 reward and a disc (your pick from what I've got - there's some good stuff). The disc isn't rare; I just want it because I've had it for so long.

Jared DeVisser   April 1, 2014 at 10:32pm

Hey foster. I am playing a round with some guys there tomorrow. where abouts do you think you lost it. i am assuming forhand from pro T so probably the walk path?

Bryan Murphy   April 2, 2014 at 8:49am

I also lost my red star wraith down the lane and to the right in the deep stuff on 13 from the shorts. Black n white stamp. Keep an eye out will ya fellas

riversidejoe johnson    December 27, 2013 at 3:04pm

i got some cheap discs for sale but no pay pal so if you are local or want to meet up somewhere around big rapids i can work out some pretty good deals.
Also i am somewhat new to big rapids so i need a local to show me some stuff before the tourneys hit


Colin McIntyre    April 24, 2013 at 7:31pm

Found a Dominator the other day. If you lost one, describe the disc and tell me the hole, and I'll be happy to get it back to you. While I'm on here, I also am still pining over a long-lost glow FLX Surge (~165g), lost a long time ago to the left on the long woods hole, probably 300 feet out. Name and contact info are on there. - Colin McIntyre

Colin McIntyre   April 25, 2013 at 12:14pm

Correction. It's a destroyer.

Tyler Sherman    August 9, 2012 at 2:39pm

Jared Frost    August 17, 2011 at 1:24pm

I miss this pace.


Terry Elizondo    July 25, 2011 at 4:26pm

Foster, Thank you so much for the quick reply. And that review is awesome! CMU's course are more on the easy side forsure, and i definitely want to find a more challenging course. I will be back in Mount Pleasant in a few weeks, and i would love to play a round if you're down. I'll keep in touch.


Foster N.    July 25, 2011 at 3:25pm

Re Terry: Northend, IMHO, is more difficult than Deerfield. There is no water hazard here, but the course plays longer than deerfield with the biggest hole being flat and wooded instead of an open down hill. I wrote a very lengthy review and posted it here if you want lots of details. I don't think there is a better course closer to CMU and it's really not that far - 40 miles or so. I'd meet you there if you want to go through with a local.


Terry Elizondo    July 25, 2011 at 11:29am

I am a CMU student from the Flint Area and an AVID disc golfer to say the least... Is this course worth the hike from CMU? From the sound of it, it seems like a pretty legit course. Thanks guys/gals!


Josh Pickard    July 9, 2011 at 9:59pm

Lost a red APX. Name, phone#, and pdga# on the inside of the rim. Suspect it to have been left in the basket on 18. Let me know if you've seen it!


Foster N.    July 6, 2011 at 2:27am

due to many many players ignoring all warnings and throwing from the top of hole 4's hill down to the basket of hole 18, we have been forced to make some changes to this course. We believe we have made changes that make the course better. Now, instead of going left from hole 16's basket, you need to go right. There's a path that will lead you to the new hole 17. After 17, the old hole 17 is now hole 18. We have moved the basket to a longer, tougher location. We hope you all appreciate the effort this took.
