The course is currently unplayable


Patrick Theisen    July 29, 2018 at 5:42pm

Lost a mvp matrix on hole 8 on the left side tall grass, it's green with a black rim let me know if found!


Michael David Kridler    November 29, 2017 at 5:03am

Closed in the winter? Bummer. Guess I'm driving back to gr with a heavy heart.

Rob "da Crippler" Hess   November 29, 2017 at 2:18pm

The course is not closed, just park by the gate and start on 9. don't worry about the no parking signs.

Michael David Kridler   November 30, 2017 at 12:52am

I'll be back next week.

Rob "da Crippler" Hess    August 20, 2017 at 10:48am

Please be aware that there are ticks infected with Lyme disease at the park and golf course.


Adam "Da Savage" Sanford    May 9, 2017 at 5:06pm

The management of this park is uneducated to disc golf. Simple as that. Ignorant people do ignorant things. Alienating the largest population of disc golfers in the U.P. is ignorant. The tee pad design is ignorant. Their misuse of donated funds is criminal now they've shut it down for the winter and made it pay to play. That is not what the donors were told would be the case.
They had no idea what kind of use the course would get or how it would effect the land. Remind you these are DNR co ... more


Brian Tourangeau    May 9, 2017 at 3:58am

THIS COURSE IS DANGEROUS. The tee pads are 4'x8' planters boxes that are 6" high and filled with gravel. They are uneven and slippery and difficult if you do run ups and you can fall off or trip over them. The boxes and signs for the red tees are also in over half of the fairways so they become obstacles from the back tees. Some of the tee pads are placed directly next to trees or signs that you can smash your hand off of while on the tee box. Leaf cover hides roots and stumps tha ... more

Sounds like they should pull the course , pull it in the name of safety.

Kevin Gillhespy   May 9, 2017 at 9:12am

they probably should and then use the baskets for another park rory doesnt have anything to do with.

Brian Tourangeau   May 15, 2017 at 10:10pm

I honestly don't care what they do with that place. As far as I am concerned it is not even a course.

Jon Harris    May 6, 2017 at 5:37pm

This now a pay to play course. $3 per day or $60 year. Totally not worth it as the course is unfinished and poorly managed. They don't want disc golfers here.


nathan Simpson    September 25, 2016 at 7:12pm

Closed till spring


Eric Willman    August 2, 2016 at 5:49pm

I shot a new course record here on 7/25/2016 from the blues tees. The original 18-hole layout. I shot a 49 (-6) during the Noc Bay Flyers Monday Handicap Singles League....witnessed by Jon Harris, Brain Tourangeau, Robin, and Ziggy.

Jon Harris   August 2, 2016 at 4:06pm

Done with mostly putters! Congrats again :)

Eric Willman   August 2, 2016 at 9:44pm

Thanks Jon!...every shot but 2 were with putters...the other 2 I threw a Stratus.. :)

Jesse Pascoe    March 19, 2016 at 1:45am

Lost a blue dx valkyrie on 24 on the hill side. My name and number is on the back let me know if found, thank you.


Jesse Pascoe    February 21, 2016 at 5:04am

Disc has orange balloon ribbon attached to it also.


Jesse Pascoe    February 21, 2016 at 4:31am

Lost a champion valkyrie on hole number 8. Please call the number on disc if found thanks! Small reward if returned.

Jon Harris   February 22, 2016 at 11:21am

I'll let ya know if it turns up at my shop :)

Jesse Pascoe   February 23, 2016 at 12:46pm

awesome thank you!

Jamie Vincent    February 19, 2016 at 12:21am

Add this club to see whats happening in the Yoop


Rob Hess    January 30, 2016 at 5:50pm

Almost four years old and still no tee pads. What a joke. PTP is an embarrassment.

Jesse Pascoe   January 31, 2016 at 12:33am

An embarrassment? That's a little harsh. From what I understand, there's plenty of notion and volunteer support to better the course, but the park director won't allow further work to be done. This course is also free to play so don't compare it to like rollin ridge. The course i ... more

Rob Hess   January 31, 2016 at 8:30am

I'm the one who is there EVERY day when no one else will lift a finger to do anything. I have put hundreds of hours into this course and no one else has even come close to that. Who the fuck are you? I know just about everyone who plays there on a regular basis and I've never heard of you. You need to STFU now and go back under your rock POS. u?

Jesse Pascoe   January 31, 2016 at 8:55am

No need to get angry. I was just sticking up for the course. You haven't heard of me because I'm pretty new to the sport. And if you've done all that work you should be proud of it. Might not mean much coming from me, but it really is an awesome course. It was not my intention to piss ... more

Ryan Newton    August 3, 2015 at 4:16pm

Can someone give me an estimate of how long it takes to play this course?

[member not found]   August 3, 2015 at 9:10am

I average about 1 hr. 15 min. unless I lose a disc.

Jon Harris   August 3, 2015 at 10:28am

If it's your first time through plan on 90 minutes for 18 holes. If you do holes 19 - 24 add another 30.

[member not found]   August 4, 2015 at 7:38am

Crap,... I thought I've shot at all the holes,... but I have yet to whip at basket 24.

Jen VandeWater    May 15, 2015 at 10:40pm

Is this course dog friendly? Thinking of playing here this summer. Thanks!

Jon Harris   May 15, 2015 at 3:51pm

I see people out there with dogs so i belive it's fine. Just remember to bring a bag :)

Wally Petrouske   May 15, 2015 at 7:01pm

It depends on your dog. If you are worried about it going after roosters, then you might want to avoid bringing him. There are a few roosters that hang out by the house on the edge of the course. We have brought one of our dogs there, but she is harmless. If we brought out lab there she would kill all the roosters.

Jen VandeWater   May 27, 2015 at 9:47am

Thanks for the advice!

Kevin Gillhespy    March 11, 2015 at 5:44am

lost a pink FLX Buzzz on hole 12

[member not found]   March 10, 2015 at 11:19pm

I'll put you on the list

Jon Harris    March 9, 2015 at 10:51pm

If you're itching to disc PTP is prime right now! The snow is melting fast and the fairways are all packed down.


Jamie Vincent    November 24, 2014 at 8:45am

6 more holes have been rough finished..They are marked by Blue Flags for the winter. I will post pictures of them next time I play the course..

Tim Kopacz   November 24, 2014 at 9:28am

He actually had those 6 mainland holes roughed in at the same time he did the first 18, although the pond edge was not suitable yet. The blue tees should have blue flags, red tees red, and a yellow flag for pins. When I met with him back in the second week of October, he said he was gonna get the re ... more

Jamie Vincent    November 20, 2013 at 1:51am

Huge tree down in the middle of the fairway on hole 4..right behing the red from the red tee or be a champ and throw over the tree from the blue tee..its likely it will be down for quit sometime

Rob "da Crippler" Hess   July 30, 2017 at 9:20pm
