Is Highbridge the largest complex???

I am doing some writing for the WI Department of Tourism right now and I need to be 100% certain that Highbridge is in fact the largest complex. I know Lemon Lake only shows 4 courses on DGCR but do they also have a course that shares parts of the other courses? I also know they are adding 1 course.

I also know Sabbattus has 4 courses listed.

Does anyone know of anywhere else?

I am planning on going to Lemon Lake this weekend, so I will let you know what I find. I assume that the info here is correct though.

In regards to Lemon Lake, they have the following: Red, Blue and White---18 holes on each course. White is currently being redesigned for 2013 Worlds.

The Silver course is also 18 holes. There are long teepads on this course that make up the Gold course.

There was talk about adding another (pink?) course, but that plan has been scrapped, which is why they are working on the re-design of the White course. There has also been discussion about creating a temp Worlds course that includes part of the existing Red and Blue courses.

Bottom line....Lemon Lake has 4 permanent courses, 1 of which includes 2 sets of tee pads.

I've been to both Lemon Lake and Highbridge and Highbridge has more courses if that is what you are asking (it's also prettier and has better dg, but that's not what you asked ). I believe Highbridge is over 400+ acres of strictly dg, which is why they claim "largest in the world". I know of no other complex that is that huge, but then again, what do I know

I haven't come across any with more courses, Selah might be the largest at 1000 acres.

As I recall, the hilltop at Highbridge is 260 acres and the campground area adds 120 acres. The park at the IDGC is around 900 acres with currently 90 being used for the three courses, four if you count minigolf. The PDGA has the option to build two more course there in the future eventually bringing it to five plus the minigolf course.
