I live 33 miles away, east, on the border of MI, and last year we got our first 4-6 inches of snow or so around the date of this tourney last year.

That being said, we are higher up in elevation and even in January the snow levels drop off substantially if you drive any direction south or west (the opposite its true for driving north or east), so Highbridge/Mellen should be alright.

October is usually great disc golf weather all around.

We just returned to highbridge after a 4 year hiatus last weekend. Big shout out to everyone who has helped fix it up, the courses were in amazing shape. We had a new person with us and they were amazed at the courses and their condition.

We will definitely be returning! The dream is not dead ��

Agreed, I haven't been there for a few years myself.

Couple of questions though,
I thought camping was only allowed at Chestnut, there was a group with tent on Bear #1.

And curious about the stuff west of Honka and down the hill.

See attached photo.

Slic is developing a small "community" of cabins west of the Honka.

That's my tent on Bear. I love sleeping outdoors but it's getting cold at night, time to move back to the bunkhouse soon.

Registration is open for the Fall Classic. I'll be playing in whatever weather presents itself that weekend.

I’ll be up to Highbridge on the 20th.
It’s great to hear it’s in good (or better) shape!
So, we camp on the hill now, not at Chestnut?

I couple of my friends went up there two weekends ago and they camped at chestnut. So I know you can camp there. Not sure about camping on the hill. Either way have a great time. It should be gorgeous up there.

Camping is at Chestnut only, 25 sites with 6 people per site. There are two drilled and cased wells on the hill which may provide a water source for camping near the courses but that won't happen for a while. Maybe next year. Text Tom at 715-579-4487 to reserve a camp site.
