Details Course Map
Hole #1 is at the south end of the main parking lot off of the Glen Ave entrance. There is an alternate parking lot on McGraft Park Rd, which is closet to the tee for hole #8.
This was the first official "Yeti Tech" course. Designed in 1999, it was installed at a time when the nearest disc golf course was in Grand Rapids, about a half an hour away. This park was not my first choice for a location, I originally proposed a course in Kruse Park, another City of Muskegon Park further to the south that had more acreage, much more interesting terrain, and a beautiful beach on Lake Michigan. The City Parks Department rejected this proposal and offered McGraft as an alternative. So from the start, it was known that this would be a fairly short "beginner friendly" course in order to fit with the existing park amenities.
The course has had some changes since the original design. Holes #1 through #6 play around the tennis and shuffleboard courts and feature many large trees. Hole #7 plays down a toboggan run. Holes #8 and #9 play on a part of the park that was a burial ground for horses during the lumbering era. You need to cross McGraft park Road to get to Hole #10, which has a pond on the left side of the fairway. After crossing back over the park road, local players tend to play holes #11 and #14 along the creek bed before climbing the ridge up to play holes #12, #13, and #15, which play around some of the largest trees in the park. Hole #16 is a challenging downhill shot across the creek into a "jungle" area surrounding the pin. Holes #17 is a tricky uphill shot, and #18 is also a tricky short hole that has the creek around 3 sides of the green. The creek area holes can often be muddy or near impossible to play during heavy rain or snow melt conditions.
