Top 5 Courses:
- Blue Ribbon Pines -East Bethel, MN
- Milo McIver -Estacada, OR
- Silver Creek -Manitowoc, WI
- Warwick park -Warwick, NY
- Idlewild – Burlington, KY
Why those courses: BRP!! Home course and where I really got into the culture and family that comes with the sport, it was where I spent my weekends once I started playing disc golf! They have an awesome pro-shop and there’s a grill/bar that you cross about 3 times through this great 27 hole course. Lots of tight lines and fun pin locations, also its open and taken care of in the winter.
Milo McIver was one of the longer professional arm courses with big, old trees, it was beautiful. Good elevation change and forced lanes, also some extremely long shots, forcing great up shots and putts.
Silver Creek is right on Lake Michigan and plays tight through the trees with some elevation and cool pin placement’s; one of which is on a peninsula out over Lake Michigan.
Warwick Park was on a mixture of rolling, grassy and rocky hills with a lot of great old trees. Fun pin positions and some crazy signature holes and views, with lots of elevation change and big shots.
