Well now I have to buy a few!

Note, there is now a third 1.9 acre lot at $15k. Looks like several folks who own the small lots bordering the courses are all looking to cash out at the same time.

Think JJ might have tipped them off that now would be a good time to sell?

Or maybe they feel that now that JJ is gone and the Mecca is doing great, now is the time to sell!

IF the first lot sold for the asking price of $11k (and I don't know if it did) that might have gotten some of the other owners thinking this was a good time to do a little fishing for buyers.

I'm an avid player and I would not want a course neighboring my land.
But other people would think it is worth more. The value of land is not determined by the average of what everyone thinks it should be worth, it is determined by whoever places the highest value on it. So, having a disc golf course next door raises the value because it raises the value to someone.

But it definitely reduces the number of potential buyers. I would bet that +90% of people looking for property do not want a piece of property next to a disc golf course. There is probably a percentage of people who believe that living next to a disc golf course is a positive thing and would pay extra for that property. The problem for the sellers will be finding one of those people.

Some people are probably also just don't care either way about the course being there. Real estate is hot right now, and the area of Wisconsin up by highbridge is always in demand. Those asking prices are right in line from other similar sized lots I've looked at up there.

I contacted the realtor, and now know that all four lots up for sale show JJ as the owner. It looks like three next to each other along Mile Road and one just below the main parking lot.

Highbridge Hills is officially open for play. The mild winter, coupled with low snow fall totals have led to an early spring situation on the hill. The courses are drying out very well. High winds have moved the process along. I'll try to keep the conditions updated on the course pages as the season progresses. We do keep our FB page updated frequently.
