I'm chiming in here a bit late, but Mason County is a hotbed for disc golf on the west side of the state. I'm from Ludington.Mason County Park
- about 8 miles south of Ludington (The locals will say it's over by "The Project". This is a reference to the hydroelectric power plant. The entire park is property of Consumer's Energy.) has three courses- Beauty, Beast, and Golaith- 24 holes each. I believe every tee pad is concrete.Leviathan
is located within a tract of land owned by the ludington area schools. Half of the plot is walking/biking trails, half is the disc golf course. There are short, medium, and long tees. The position of the tees makes each distance play like their own course, and the long tees are a mix of par 3 and par 4 holes, with two par 5 holes.The Edge
- Scotville- ten miles east of Ludington. They did a decent job with the design on this course, given the lay of the land. This course is near a river. It's wet muddy most of the year. I think the fact that the other courses are A+ makes The Edge seems dull, but it's worth the short drive.Labyrinth
- The newest installment. This course is on West Shore Community College property. Labyrinth has a lot of rolling hills and just enough wooded holes to make a perfect disc golf experience.Flip city
- This course is about 30 miles south of Ludington in the middle of nowhere. I don't know what to say, just go there and play the course. It is on private property, so tread lightly and slip a $5 in the cash box because Bill Peterson is a hell of a nice guy.
