Pros: Terrific Course. 3 tee pads and 3 baskets on each hole maximizes possibilities.
Love the challenge the course offers, with many tight gaps and long baskets.
Terrific clubhouse with a huge selection of discs/companies, bags, shirts, hats, bathroom and a shower.
Camping there is also terrific and a great value for a two day trip to disc there.
Private course, meaning everyone who plays there generally knows disc golf etiquette(which is a real problem at my local courses)
Driving range(basically a batting cage) is also cool to get a feel for how a disc will fly out of your hand
Cons: Only real thing I can think of is the sogginess of the ground in the spring, but that's all up to par(pun intended) this time of the year
Other Thoughts: I live over an hour away and won't even hesitate to make this trip whenever I can. Awesome course, awesome people to talk to and a terrific challenge of all aspects of your game. Glad to see the tournaments are getting bigger and keep up the good work guys!

Disc Golf Heaven
1 Helpful / 7 Not
Pros: With three baskets per hole and 3 tees on most, there's a huge variety of shots. There's an element of danger on the pond holes. Benches everywhere and walls and terraced holes, dragons in the trees, bridges and stairs and platforms. Big tee pads with rock borders, some with flower gardens. A nice mix of wooded and open holes. A clubhouse with BEER!!! If they find your disc and there's no #, it'll be on the shelf the next time you come, even two years later! Great hosts and a welcoming atmosphere.
Cons: It gets a little soggy down at the bottom of the course, especially in the spring.
Other Thoughts: I think Rollin ridge should be a model for how to set up a first class pay-to-play course. I drive 2 1/2 hours to play this course and it's well worth the trip.

Best course in Wisconsin
0 Helpful / 13 Not
Pros: Long mid and shorts make the course really fun to play back to back on the same day. Super cool owners and staff, pro shop, bar. Fees are cheap, like $5 I think. Less than I spend on Gatorade or beer for a day discing. Pro shop disc prices are cheaper than Amazon for the most part.
Lost and found is top notch. I got a phone call the next day after I lost a disc. It was still sitting on a shelf a month later.
Cons: It's a long drive from most cities, but worth it.
Other Thoughts: Go disc here. You won't be disappointed.

Pros: Three Tees and Three Baskets on every Hole ! Clean bathrooms and Showers !
Cons: The area in front of Hole #14 should be taken care of, because it is almost always flooded or very muddy ! Maybe put 2 feet of mulch over the area or put ALOT of soil in, sloping down away from the wooded barrier so water flows away from it !

Pros: Very well maintained course. Owners and staff are super friendly.
Cons: Only con I can say is that the Clubhouse isn't always open during the advertised hours. Not many courses even offer this to you around this area, so that doesn't stop me from rating Rollin Ridge a 5!
Other Thoughts: Rollin Ridge is a great course to throw at. Multiple tee pads and baskets offer a wide variety of different lines to take depending on which ones you choose to play. They also shovel and salt the tee pads during the winter months so you can play year round if you'd like.
The staff, no matter who's working, is always super friendly. They do a very good job on the upkeep of the course. Not to mention, Austin takes time to wade thru the water on the water holes to retrieve lost discs. So if you have your name and number on the back you can go back and claim it off the lost and found shelf. He's found a couple of mine already! Look forward to throwing here any time I get a chance!

Pros: Good variety of holes
Multiple pins and tees don't just add distance, they create different lines and new challenges
Score cards with accurate distances
Pro shop and bar on site!
Open all year round
This is one of my favorite courses to play. Some of the lines may seem a bit too challenging but that makes it so much more rewarding when you hit them. The pro shop has an excellent selection of discs, and a very nice bar and pool table. There is camping available for wayward travelers and the staff is great. They search for lost discs on their down time and call the numbers of people when they find discs. I never have to worry about permanently losing discs.
I appreciated the variety of holes here. It's not often I get to use my flick, and there are even holes I still can't figure out the best throw.
Cons: The tee signs are not very professional, but I'm sure they'll fix that I'm time.
Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this course. It is a great destination spot to combine with silver creek. Every nine holes you can stop back at the clubhouse and take a breather. They're constantly adding new features and doing work on the course. This course is already awesome, and it's only gonna get better. Watch out for hole 2, it's a disc eater.

One Heck Of A Course!!!
1 Helpful / 7 Not
Pros: Multiple tee box and pin selections available, so it can cater to all skill levels.
Scoring cards made with correct pars for each teebox/pin layout.
Country Club setting! Pro Shop, Pool Table, Drinks, Food!
Much nicer than the other "pay to play" parks I have been at. For basically the same price.
Some holes are more open and other require some precision shots.
A par 5 is an actual par 5! Over 800 feet in length using the longest tee box!
No litter on the course. There are garbages that are maintained.
Lots of signs to help you find your way.
Cons: The holes that show water on them were only swampy with the exception of one of the last holes.
Other Thoughts: I can't knock them for this but a beverage cart would be AWESOME!

Perfection in Wisconsin
5 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Each hole has multiple tees, most of them 3, and every hole has 3 baskets leaving you with numerous ways to play. The tees are all in immaculate condition with the only exception being hole 8, I believe, can be slippery as it's located under tree cover and never fully dries out. Add to that, the fact it's not concrete but a paver type attachment placed on a beautifully crafted deck and that's the only iffy tee in the entire place.
The baskets are mach x and catch like Jerry Rice using extra stick-em. The exception to that are the red baskets which are mach 3 or 5 I can never tell the difference. These however are set up with lights for night rounds adding even more reason why this course is amazing.
The lines are challenging but still open enough a clean shot will get you through. The only thing in question is the distance as the holes are not for the weak of arm. Especially anyone who plays black to black.... 1000ft is a crazy long hole. Fun, but crazy long. Orange to orange is their amateur set up and even that is a touch long for beginners but just about right for an 850 rec level player.
The grounds are immaculately well kept with paths mowed through any long grass so you can criss cross and more likely find an errant throw. The water hazards are well placed and easy enough to avoid but if you do drop in you can't go and get your disc back. You are to tell the staff and they drag the pond and search the marsh and woods occasionally and if your name and number is on the disc they call you to get it back. They also have a lost and found that seems well used.
The proshop is well stocked and fairly priced, internet is still cheaper but that is always the case.
There is a clubhouse for drinks food and beer, a deck for lounging between rounds, camping near by and many other amenities, really too many pluses to list them all. This place was set up to be a play all day location, and it serves that well.
Cons: The length can be daunting to beginners but nothing out of the question. The only real negative is it would be nice to have a bathroom or two along the course as it's a long round and there are times one is soarly needed before even the halfway point.
Other Thoughts: For $5 this place is a great price for a course this well managed and maintained. Easy to spend an entire day without blinking an eye and the best course I've ever played. There isn't even a close second. This is a must for anyone who loves to play and lives in Wisconsin, or is visiting.

Pros: Multiple baskets for each tee pad
Pro shop/employee was very friendly to first timers
Deck to relax on between rounds
Locals were friendly
Cons: Water hazards were a bit dried up(not a big con)
Some spongey/ damp areas
Few holes get near each other making it a bit confusing
Other Thoughts: Definitely deserves it's rating of #1 in the state. Some holes are pretty long and pars are somewhat questionable for amateur players. My group played the red(middle) tees and the red and orange baskets can look similar color from afar.

Rollin Ridge - Where Dreams Come True
6 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Outstanding Design
- Every line, approach and green is perfectly placed with altitude, OB and water maximized for the land
- No drive, approach or putt is a gimmie, with every shot continually challenging your mental game
Lines & Distances are extremely challenging/yet fair
- Lines will push you to your brink and have you coming back time and time again with a new idea on how to hit it, yet every line is fair. There are 0 holes in my opinion that are "throw and hope", but nearly every hole will require precise accuracy
- The distance is fair as well. Rarely are you required a 600 foot max drive, rather controlled distance is needed where placement is more important
- The course is always in stellar condition and always a beautiful place to spend an afternoon
- Tee pads are the best I've played on, perfect size, follow through zone, surrounded by rocks
- Baskets are excellent, wood blockers, bridges & walkways, green settings with elevated pins & tiers/manicured greens, clubhouse with pro shop, fireplace, outdoor fireplace, bar, TV, driving range, practice green, score cards and & pencils all put this course over the top
- 3 tee pads and 3 baskets per hole!!!!!!!
o Variation between the 3 isn't limited to distance (although it adds that too), but completely changes the lines/greens/approaches to holes
o All formats offer their own element of challenge, some of the short baskets are actually the hardest placement in my opinion (2,11,12)
- Everyone at the Ridge continues to keep improving this course and it gets better every day!
Cons: - No cons to this course, sure cool tee signs would be a nice addition, sure it can get swampy in spots, sure there are no huge downhill bombers or prominent water factors, but absolutely nothing that will make you say "dang I wish this was better" on your car ride home
- Do think there was an opportunity to make the black pin on hole #2 out on a peninsula over the water
Other Thoughts: Overall the Ridge is the place I would prefer to play nearly all of my rounds. It is a true destination course that has a high difficulty level and a high fun factor. Come camp for the weekend and enjoy the wonderful hospitality. You must play black-black at least once. Pure definition of a 5 star course.
It is truly impossible to have a bad time out at the Ridge. Miss your lines and have your score climb to new heights, but yet any day at the Ridge is a great day to be alive.
