There was a time that I was at 8/10 I think. Down to 6 - haven't played Harmony, Bucksnort, Hawk Hollow, or Flip.

I just want to recommend Wilderness - very much like RR but 2 tees and pins instead of 3.

It should be pretty much on your way from RR to Harmony. Zobel, then Wilderness would make a terrific followup day to RR.

As a Yooper I love the troll comment!

Every year I try to figure a way to play Rollin Ridge and Flip City, with a ferry ride in-between. But coming from the WI side, the Ferry schedule just doesn't match up well, I'd have to stay an extra day on the MI side. I suspect a troll could make a sweet weekend trip out of it though!

I think I'll be playing them at separate times, finally getting to Flip City at the end of May when we travel to Michigan!

The top 10 changes, I've played Flip and Idlewild at times when each were #1.

Same here.

And I agree with others as well about the top 10 revolving but if a course has spent any time in the top 10 it is a kickass course.

Some of my favorite courses were private and now extinct...ie, Flyboy, Holler in the Hills, Sugaree (just played last year).

And there are a couple that have fallen dramatically. It's a shame what appears to be happening at Highbridge Hills. It's been about 5 years since I played there. I guess it has fallen onto disrepair and ill kept?

Lastly, my personal all time favorite is in jeopardy of falling out of the top 20 - Maple Hill. I frickin loved that course. Looks like someone had a bad run in there and gave it like a 0.5 and that knocked it way down. That course is top 10 worthy IMO.

If you are already on the MI side to play Flip and you are concerned about "wasted time" you need not worry. Well within reach should be Leviathan and Beauty & The Beast. These 3 courses are staples in the mitt.
Leviathan is another one of those courses that is probably under-rated because it lacks ammenities. It is a balls on course.

While I'm feeling froggy and actually posting, I want to shout out for Hawk Hollow.

They provide one of the most unique DG experiences you will ever have.

I have a picture of Hawk Hollow on my wall at home. Never played anything like it before or since.

Good to see it getting proper recognition!

Ive only played two of the top ten, this makes me jealous!

But I’ve played several very good ones hav have previously been top ten so that’s good too I guess.

So many good courses these days.

I've only played one(and with my shoulder problems I doubt I'll ever get froggy about course bagging) Idlewild but its only 40min away, so I can play it whenever...

I would say Highbridge is on the upswing at the present...

(There are those who hate the music festival addition(s); but, they honestly needed to find a way to make more revenue than the disc golf alone was providing.)

*I've played 7 of the top 10.*

Message me when you're coming to Rollin' Ridge; I may be able to join you.
