Disc golf in Minnesota

To all.disc golfers in Minnesota,

I am in the Twin Cities area for the weekend and would really like to.throw some rounds before I leave. If I were to pick a handful of courses to play, which ones would everyone suggest?

Thanks in advance for everyone's input

Kaposia is nice, and pretty easy to get to - that's the wealth of my knowledge.

Some of the good ones right in the metro area are still not open for the season (Bryant Lake,Hyland,etc.). But if you can, make the short drive up to East Bethel go to Blue Ribbon Pines. Probably the best course in MN and one of the best in general. You will not be dissapointed. Otherwise I would say The Valley course in Inver Grove Heights and Kaposia and Acorn in St.Paul.

kaposia is in good shape. i play in shoes but they were soaked after 18. also can be tough to navigate... follow well worn paths. plymouth is also in good condition because theres a tourny tomorrow. keep in mind that EVERY course has foot deep snow in places, but those two have shoveled tees

IMHO Opinion (and in order)

Blue Ribbon Pines
Kaposia
Oakwood
Lakewood
CP Adams
The Valley
Acorn (I hate Acorn for totally irrational reasons, but I'll include it here because some people love it)

Bryant Lake is awesome as well, but is closed for the season.

I left the Cities today for a job in Madison and will miss all of the above courses.

Played Kaposia one last time last night.
