Lost a Yellow Star Valkyrie on 13 in the water to the left. Past the cut down tree. Disc is stamped with my info.

Will Riverside Park ever be updated with tee pads and signs?

Nick Bosovich   March 31 at 12:53am

That will depend on the neighborhood association who complained to the city just as pre-worlds work was being done to install the new layout. We are hoping that this year we can get the city to reverse their decision on this matter and let the final steps of the installation be completed. Im sure if ... more

Its the closest course to my house besides Johnson, and it could be an amazing course for how close it is.

Is this course we'll marked, intuitive to walk for a newcomer? Map available?

Probably should steer clear of Riverside Park this time of year. Lots of other great courses within minutes of that one also.

Niel Stoppa II   February 22 at 2:41pm

Try Garfield, or Brewer, or Jaycee in Kentwood. The new Johnson Park is awesome also

Rick "Rightfield" Mol   February 22 at 2:53pm

The new layout is not well marked. The rubber pads are gone and the flags are no longer there either. This course is not beat in enough to direct you to each hole either. Don't let that stop you though because the layout is a riot!

Just want to let my fellow disc chuckers know that this coming saturday, Jan.13th is the GRDOD lce Bowl Tournament. This means Jaycee Park will be closed for casual play from daylight till at least 4 pm. Please share this information and tell everyone you talk to that might be planning on going there about the tournament.

Andrea Lange   February 7, 2018 at 12:59am

Have fun out there, everyone! :-)

Nate Krumm    January 1, 2018 at 12:24am

GR discers, where’s the best place to buy discs around town?

GR Hobby & Disc Golf on the SE side is also great.

Rick "Rightfield" Mol   January 2, 2018 at 4:18pm

As if it needed to be stated again I would recommend Disc Baron.

Just stopped here to play a round... completely torn apart. Impossible to navigate. Is this course under construction?

Completely torn apart ???? Are they doing major construction on the park ???

Jacob Spencer   December 2, 2017 at 12:49am

that was my exact reaction^^

Jacob Spencer   December 16, 2017 at 12:31pm

I went and played it this week and nothing was wrong, maybe it was confusing since the new layout is different/longer?

Ryan Koster    October 21, 2017 at 4:05pm

Lost my pfn highlighter yellow 12 time Valkyrie just off the shore of hole 11....Also a tye dye Pro Beast on the tail end of the course.


Niel Stoppa II    September 22, 2017 at 4:53pm

Just want to let my fellow disc chuckers know that tomorrow is the GRDOD league party. This means Brewer Park has been reserved by the club and will be closed for casual play from daylight till at least 3pm. Please share this information and tell everyone you talk to that might be planning on going out there about the party. Signs will be posted in the entrance road and such but this really helps a lot too.


Jacob Spencer    September 11, 2017 at 5:41pm

What's the word on the pads? I have heard a couple reasons why they were removed but would like to know really why? I thought the layout was for sure staying the same?

Nick Bosovich   September 11, 2017 at 7:12pm

So did they remove the pads then? Are the baskets still in the new positions?

Jacob Spencer   September 11, 2017 at 10:41pm

baskets are all in the championship worlds layout still but the rubber temp pads are all removed now.

Niel Stoppa II   September 12, 2017 at 3:04pm

The pads were on loan to us for the tournament, they have been returned and as of right now the current layout will stay the same.

Jacob Spencer    September 3, 2017 at 2:44pm

Put one in the water on hole 11. One of my favorite ballistas. Really want it back, I walked around two separate days for a couple hours in the water and couldn't find it. Trades of found


Brad Mol    September 1, 2017 at 1:23pm

BEES ON HOLE 8!! I threw a disc too far on hole 8 into the woods, and was stung by a bunch of bees. A kind fellow disc golfer retrieved by bag, but I had to forfeit a yellow lucid felon since it was right next to a nest apparently. Has a custom "crowning the king" stamp on it as well as my name and number. Would love to have it back


Brad Mol    August 18, 2017 at 8:38pm

I heard this course will be reverted back to the old layout following the tournament. Can anyone verify this?

Jacob Spencer   August 19, 2017 at 9:00pm

It's staying in I'm pretty sure

Mike Durco   August 30, 2017 at 9:41pm

It's not going back to the old layout. Idk where that rumor started but it's 100% false. There are a few homeowners south of Guild that aren't happy about the holes south of Guild. But, the course isn't going back to the old layout.

Brad Mol   August 31, 2017 at 2:04pm

Thanks MIke! That is fantastic news.

Niel Stoppa II    August 11, 2017 at 3:47am

The tournament committee would like to ask all players planning on practicing at BlueGill DGC to bring only one other person with them when going to the course. Only registered Masters Worlds tournament players are allowed to practice. Please respect the rules at our private courses. All persons entering will be checked in and verified.

Jake Machiela    August 8, 2017 at 12:13am

Anyone know when the course will be complete with the tee pads, signs, etc?


Jacob Spencer    August 1, 2017 at 9:38pm

New layout rocks, love the length. Makes it another challenging course in the area, one where you can actually throw some long shots. Great job guys.


William Freed    July 30, 2017 at 10:20pm

I left a glow teebird 3 on hole 7 (I think, first time) about circles edge. Would like to get it back if anyone found it. Thanks! Great course with the redesign!

Thank you kind sir.

Douglas McIntosh   July 26, 2017 at 2:34am

Are they changing the original course , or adding a second course?

Marc LaFleur   July 26, 2017 at 10:19pm

Yes , the original course has been changed. Mostly lengthened. There are 5 holes set up on the south side of the park.

Chris Thorsgard    May 28, 2017 at 1:49pm

Left a yellow pre-flight Star Teerex on the fairway of hole 1. Has my name, but my old phone number and says "Lunchbox 9000" on the rim. I'd love to have it back and I'm offering a disc or cash. Thanks.
