Default Minneapolis - June 22-24 Must play?

Headed to MSP next week. Boatloads of courses around, some of my time will be warming up for Granite City Classic but what are my "must play" destinations?

Blue Ribbon Pines and VisionQuest are easy distances from St. Cloud and best in MN IMO. Good Luck!

Depends which direction you are entering into the state. Rickles is spot on with VQ/BRP (VQ is $10 to play if open and BRP is $5 to play) being the best in close proximity of St. Cloud (the st cloud courses are very nice too!), I would suggest spending more time at BRP, as VQ has some water holes that are easy to lose discs on - dont need that before a tourney!

If you are entering the state near the twin cities area - Bryant Lake, The Valley, Kaposia and CP Adams are my suggestions. Enjoy your time here!

Here are a few that I would recommend.
St. Cloud - Hidden Lake, Riverside, Calvary
Central MN (northern suburbs) - Blue Ribbon, Vision Quest
Twin Cities - The Valley, Kaposia, Bryant Lake

CP Adams
Bassett Creek
Oakwood
Hyland

Must play? My favorites are Kaposia and Bryant. I'd go from there depending on what kind of courses you like.

I'm sure he's seeing Phish, didn't talk to him about it but i'm sure of it. So maybe the TC courses are in play for him...

Bryant Lake Park was my favorite when I was visiting. BRP is also a must play. Vison quest wasn't there when I played, but I've heard great things.

Kaposia, although it can be confusing (no #s on signs and long walks), is the most fun course in the area.

The added arrows pointing to the next hole and new hole numbers on the baskets

Now if only they could add trash can's to each hole... too many people leaving beer cans on a few holes!
