This is my home course, and it's still worth tossing. After the 10th or 11th hole, it's an adventure, winding up the back side of Avalanche Mountain (or "Overlook" for some locals). It does end on a spectacular view of Boyne City and gorgeous Lake Charlevoix, and you can have a far drive competition from about halfway down the very steep front of the hill, if you dare (I've lost so many discs, I stopped that years ago). A few downsides to this course. It's very technical: many alley ways, tree gaps to shoot, and overgrown brush to quickly lose discs in, and the gravel tee boxes are rarely raked. Also, navigation could be a problem, as vandals have long since torn down many signs and so forth. Also after the front 9, once you eventually reach the top of the slope, you play along a tight pathway with steep slopes to each side. Discs like to fly or roll very far there, or get buried in years of piled up leaves. If you're tolerant, it's still quite fun, but me, I just throw the front 9, and hit it again if I still feel like 18. Oh, and 2 things of importance: the course begins past the only building on the grounds as you drive in, and after the 2nd hole, walk past the apartments to your left, and ignore the "no trespassing" signs, as they were put up to stop inexperienced throwers from piling drives into the building when hole 3 use to exist near it.
