What's the deal with the sign at hole 1? Is this OU student and faculty allowed course now? Anyone know?

I tried to post picture of it. Says rules: student, faculty, or membership ID required to use facility

Anyone know a guy named Goodes? I found a disc on Sunday with that name on it. No number


Jeff Novak    July 26 at 12:33pm

I lost an orange gstar Tern on 15. It was turned over to the right last I saw. There was a strong wind blowing to the left. It's at least 2/3s of the way down the fairway. Name and number on it. Reward for its return. Thanks

Albert Lewellen   July 26 at 2:18pm

I am heading out there today, will be looking for it

Jeff Novak   July 26 at 3:07pm

Thank you

Ryan Kelly    June 17 at 12:51am

Lost blue z buzzz. I think it was on 15 somewhere behind basket in the shrubs


Miles smilez Campbell    June 11 at 1:49pm

Has the course been mowed yet? Was there Sunday and grass was long asf

Tanktops N Bandanas   June 16 at 4:39pm

The course was not mowed when I played today. Far from the best shape.

Miles smilez Campbell    June 5 at 10:21pm

Found two discs today on the course. One blue dx plastic and one red dynamic disc. Name the mold

No name or number slight down hill in a small fairway in the woods, idk first time playin course

Andrew Myers   March 22 at 3:39pm

Ya I think that's 11

Andrew Myers   March 22 at 6:33pm

Hey no, you're right. It is nine. It used to be hole eleven with the old layout, which was much better.

Robert Kraut    March 12 at 1:04am

Is this course worth driving 35 minutes to play?

Just The Tim   March 12 at 8:24am

I live 10 minutes from there and won't play there. Absolutely awful.

Robert Kraut   March 12 at 9:06am

Thanks for the input guys, FireFighters it is.

Ben Jackson   March 17 at 10:45am

I go to school here and play it only once in a while. It's usually bad conditions from overgrowth alone (even before the redesign). Firefighters, Addison, Seymour, etc are all better than this. It's still better than civic center though.

Kenneth Rumble    November 2 at 2:56am

Lost a burgundy metal flake gator couple weeks back.. Pretty sure it has my # in it like all my discs nice to get it back..


Ben Jackson    October 22 at 4:05am

Left a White Challenger there 2 weeks ago. Reward for return. likely near 18/1


Douglas Fresh    October 11 at 4:49pm

What a waste. The school would have benefited more if they took a tax write-off from donating the baskets to a venue with space and a course designer who knows what the hell they are doing. The only good things left about this course are the baskets and a few of the original holes (which need a ton of trim work) that didn't get half their fairways taken over by poorly placed new holes. Hole 3 is what happens when the designer forgets to remove their head from their ass before planning a co ... more

Jeff Hollinger WPD   October 12 at 2:05pm

haha yes.

Eric Dusten   October 22 at 9:45pm

It for sure wasnt designed by a disc golfer. Even a casual disc golfer would know better. I'll play it because its close and never busy. But what a shame & ridiculous pin and tee placements. I hope this is just temporary. At least river bends is mowed i hear.

Eric McCahill - Brys Ace Race TD    September 30 at 9:24pm

Blue C line PD was left by hole 11 basket today while looking for orange x XL that went deep and left, name and number on both, reward for return.

Eric McCahill - Brys Ace Race TD   September 30 at 5:27pm

PD was picked up after 12:30, whenever the next group went through most likely around 1 or after..

Andy Bawol    September 20, 2015 at 12:19am

Someone is going to get seriously hurt somewhere between 12 and 17 unless they make some changes. It's not a matter of if but when. Whoever said they should have used that bowl is right. Standing on 17 I just wanted to throw backwards into. Readymade hole right there.

The holes you remember aren't even close to the same since everything has been growing unchecked and no ones been on the course.

Brandon"RedRum" Redmond   September 20, 2015 at 8:06am

Not even close to the designs they were, then?

Andy Bawol   September 20, 2015 at 10:18am

The basic structure is there but a lot of lines are gone. They need a couple of hours of trim work.

Jason Riberas    September 17, 2015 at 11:38pm

Found a disc today while playing the new redesign. Found it on hole 3. Tell me what it is and I'll give it back to you.

Good of you to make an attempt to get it back Jason. If I found a disc with no contact info, I wouldn't even try. No contact info means you don't want it back IMO.

Jason Riberas   September 21, 2015 at 9:06pm

the disc is a star destroyer but it is not a pre avery. Does your buddy have a nickname on his disc and wha color is it?

David Tomlinson   September 21, 2015 at 9:24pm

It probably says mike cook. he said its pinkish.

Miles Lawrence    September 16, 2015 at 9:54pm

Course update: 9-16-15 So i just got done playing a round on the newly redesigned course. The layout of the holes is as follows. Hole 1: Plays on the old hole 4. Tee pad is by the tree that was about half way down the old fairway. Same pin location. Hole 2: Plays off the old hole 5 tee pad. Pin is up hill and right after the gap. Hole 3: Tee pad is left of the tree gap from 2. Pin is in the location of old hole 5. Hole 4: Plays off the old hole 6 with the pad and pin in the same locations ... more

MMDGC want ... more

donny v   September 18, 2015 at 9:35am

dude all your home courses were my home courses from 1997-2005. I moved up to here and started building courses out here where there were none. not butthurt though Sadkins. you're an okay guy too. just spreading the dg love to all. I drive to Shelby twp every day to work. ask those whod played my place and they'll agree its worth the drive :)

donny v   September 18, 2015 at 9:53am

keep it up Miles. we're doing the same out in St. Clair county! thanks to you and your gang Seymour Lake is so much better than it was back then. ill get down there soon and hit up OU too.

Mark Jankowski    September 15, 2015 at 8:56pm

Found this article. Says the course is completed and also says where to park. Looks like the course starts in a different area. https://www.oakland.edu/view_news.aspx?sid=34&nid=12400

Andy Bawol   September 15, 2015 at 9:12pm

Looks like it starts on old 4. Parking is in the same lot as before (P11). Nice.

David Tomlinson   September 15, 2015 at 9:21pm

Do you know if all the signs are up?

Tony Turner    September 14, 2015 at 4:39pm

Walked the course, and all 18 baskets are in again. Different layout, and not really sure just how it goes yet. Maybe basket/tee numbers to come? Also, not sure where to park - can park in the previous location, but a decent walk to even get to hole 16(?) and no real opening. Previous hole 4 looks to be hole 1 now? Course has been mowed, so possible to play. Let us know if you get more info.

Andy Bawol   September 14, 2015 at 2:33pm

This is excellent news. Please post anything you find out about layout/hole numbers/parking. Very excited to have this course back!

Jeff Novak   September 14, 2015 at 11:44pm


Ben Jackson   September 17, 2015 at 8:39am

Supposedly parking is the same as before. I'm going to check it out today

Miles smilez Campbell    September 8, 2015 at 5:03pm
