Daylight savings time ends Nov. 2, right between rounds, shouldn't be a factor for most people. Camping is available at Chestnut Grove and we will have running water and hot showers if at all possible. Hot food is also available at the Oasis bar in Highbridge. Text Tom at 715-579-4487 to reserve a camp site.

If I wasn't coming up tomorrow, I would have done this event. I just learned it's Bear and BB! I really want to play a tournament on Bear! But at least I will get to play it casually.

We could still use some help with funding for expenses and equipment upkeep. Greg's small engine repair in Highbridge has been keeping us running all year, and he's very good but he's not cheap and our mowers are pretty old and prone to breakdowns. Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far, the response has been pretty hearty warming.<3:thmbup:

Wish you were here this weekend, you would love how everything looks. It won't be the same without you.

Played a practice round on Bear and I am floored at how top notch of a shape it's in - it feels like a different course than the one I played years ago, in a very very good way.

We definitely want to get some of those views back. When Tick told me you could see Lake Superior from Gold 3 I thought he was kidding me. I had no idea it was that open.:eek:

WOW!! Nice video of courses rarely seen on "tape". Having never been to Highbridge, this is some nice insight into what awaits my eventual visit. It certainly has moved up my wishlist. I have no idea how these courses have looked for the last few years, but they look to be in impeccable shape and live up to they hype here on this site. Great work and kudo to all involved in stepping up to become stewards of this gem.

Northern Lights event schedule for 2020 including all the Highbridge Hills tournaments except the Wisconsin Tour finale on October 10. If this schedule holds up, we'll have back to back events the weekend of Oct. 10-11 with the finale and the Fall Classic! Should be a great weekend for a fantastic disc golf experience, don't miss it! :clap:

Ditto!

I must have read some of the drama regarding this complex a few years ago, because the name has stuck in my mind. Now, after reading about all the work that has been done and seeing some of the courses on the Northern Lights' coverage, I definitely have to head that way sometime.

If you could pick the best time of year to play Highbridge, when would you recommend? I'm thinking September/October?

I would say August/September up to mid October definitely. By August the courses are all pretty dry, skeeters and ticks are down and the fairways are in their best shape. And HH in October with peak color is absolutely beautiful!

I haven't read this thread in a while, but that little update says a ton about the state of HBH. I'm definitely going to make a point to get back up there this summer/fall.

wolfhaley 02-20-2020 08:16 PM

Mid August we're heading up there for the first time in 7 years. I can't wait to see what it looks like now.

DanJon 02-20-2020 09:27 PM

I'm also planning on going up this summer for the first time in a few years.

Probably come up with the Chesterfields crew at some point.

I will be heading there in late June. I supposed I better start making official plans and getting reservations taken care of.

da Crippler 03-16-2020 06:19 AM

We have five courses on a couple hundred acres, plenty of room for social distancing.:thmbup:

I'm 200 miles east of Highbridge and we've lost a lot of snow. HH is in the lake effect snow belt south of Lake Superior so I'm sure there's still three feet up there, but it is disappearing rapidly.

If any unemployed pros want something to do this year you can come up to Highbridge and haul brush for me. You'll get the same pay I get.;)

Be generous. Offer them 5x what you get paid ;)






-edit- I'm working under the assumption you get paid nothing.
