Kensington Metropark in Milford, Michigan has one of the best disc golf courses in the Midwest. Known for the 18-hole ‘Toboggan Course’ and also the pro Black Locust course.
The Discraft Great Lakes Open (DGLO) is world famous as one of the top events globally in the sport of disc golf.
Course designer and Discraft owner Jim Kenner #292 created an epic experience that people still talk about today.
At 9013 feet, this champion level par 62 course has a mix of large elevation changes and tight fairways that will test every shot in your bag. Bring a spotter because it has long holes and punishing rough.
The Toboggan Course is located near the winter activities area across the road from the Maple Beach parking lot.
There is a $15 per day vehicle permit required to enter the park if you do not have an annual Metropark or combination Metropark/Oakland County Park permit.
