Looking great. Nice and dry.

Follows cross country ski trail through grasslands and pine plantations. Elevation changes and vistas abound. Two sets of baskets on every hole -- red Mach V's in a shorter/easier positions and blue DISCatchers in longer/challenging positions. Multiple shelters with bathrooms, water fountains, and picnic tables by hole 1. Baskets pulled for snow sports from November to April.

Dogs allowed with the purchase of a dog permit and on a leash.

City of Madison Disc Golf Permit required. $5/day or $40/year. These daily/annual passes are for Elver Park and Hiestand Park so you can play both courses in one day by purchasing only one daily pass.
