When your here its like a community. Before i was volunteering i was up here as a golfer and this dude showed up in a school bus he converted into an RV. He lived in Michigan and just got done touring the disc golf am tour. We had 7 guys that year and he played and partied with us the whole time and held his own better than his doubles partner. It was an absolute blast and good memories made.

HBH is magical. It's all of Jokinen's tomfoolery and his "aw shucks" chicanery that has killed the place over the years.

The golf is soooo good.

If this complex (word intended) doesn't resurrect, I'm SO glad that I got a round in at Blueberry over Thanksgiving last year.

John was just sitting there in his truck waiting for someone to give him $10 (which I did).

I was a little worried about hunters and he was kind enough to give me an orange (oil stained/smelly) dry fit to put on. That was nice of him. I mean that.

Then he drove off. I presumed to buy breakfast with my $10.

Blueberry was great and I made sure I appreciated every moment of it, since I knew it could be my last time playing it.

I just don't get it.
HBH is the greatest collection of courses in the world, IMHO. They hold design value, aesthetic value, and historic value that can't be replicated elsewhere. They're so good that my significant other and I read this thread in its entirety, decided that the superlatives written about the courses outweighed the associated drama, and drove 12 hours from SW Ohio just to play them. We liked everything so much that we came back again two years later. I love Selah, the IDGC, Tyler State Park, Mason County Park, and all the other top-tier destinations out there, but Highbridge stands alone at the top of the pile. There's simply nowhere else like it.

Its built for pros but has somthing to offer every skill level. 300 acres of disc golf heaven with spectaular views, elevation changes, open holes, tight hallways, ace runs, a legit Par 6. Its special and could be a once a year destination course even with all the free courses out there now.
Probably more like a "Once in a lifetime destination" for some of us!!

If it does come back to life ... maybe someday.

No question, HBH is the greatest single collection of courses and has potential.

Currently the "lodge" if you want to call it that? is a hole in the wall shed with "I smoked pot here" and "****** your sister last night" written on the walls in sharpie. Im not saying they need anything fancy but maybe clean and "respectable"? (not sure if that's a thing anymore) for such a great disc golf destination.

Just speaking for myself, I hesitate to bring my family for a day and certainly wouldn't camp there. I get the people who go with buddies want to have a good time and that's great! but for some of us with wives and children it can be embarrassing to the sport and not exactly family friendly. I'd like to see that improve and i talk to others that share similar convictions.

Oh boy.

I sure hope things get back on the right path. We reserved an Airbnb in May. I feel fairly foolish now.

If HBH isn't up and running, make the run to Mont du Lac instead.
