I've been planning a possible road trip to Flip City and found this site:

http://www.ludingtondiscgolf.com/

While at Worlds in Kalamazoo recently, I was told Leviathan was awesome
along with the 2 Mason County courses, which evidently has 3 courses now.

Taking the ferry across to Wisconsin and playing in Manitowic and/or Appleton, WI has been a dream of mine for a few years now for this east coast golfer.

Four Courses actually that I know of

Beauty
Beast
Goliath
Leviathan

And I was hearing rumors about a short technical one in the Cartier's Campground as well. So at least 4 maybe five and that's just what is right in Ludington.

I played Flip city and the Ludington courses last week, if you are in this area I highly recommend Flip City. Next time I will just stay there and play that course over and over.

It is just a beautiful place for disc golf...on private land, 24 holes,
cement tees, lots of elevation changes, rock gardens, tree lined fairways,
cut grass...I could on and on.

You could spend all day at Mason County too since there are 3 courses in the same location but Flip City is just too enjoyable for this weak armed disc golfer.

If you come up further north near Traverse City there are some very nice courses in the area.
Hickory Hills: 24 holes in the woods, elavation changes, cement pads, nice signs, tough course bring your hiking boots and water. http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=647#

Myles Kimmerly: 18 holes in beautiful woods, huge beech trees and maples rolling through hills, lots of rocks, nice signs, lovely natural setting, a true norther gem!

Boyne also has two new 18 hole courses that are supposed to be big and challenging

Petoskey has a 24 holer though I heard its very tough

If you ever come north send me a message I would love to show you around.
Also check this site out for courses through out michigan
