anyways it doesn't really matter, this is all just opinions anyways.. maybe i need to try the cheese curds you guys are eating


do you really think you're gonna argue to some of the most experienced course baggers in the game that the faux country club courses in MN and the pitch & putt courses in CO have anything on WI?

and what do touring pros have to do with good courses? we see dog$hit courses on tour all the time cuz touring is about where the big purse is not where the good courses are. and if you know that doesn't matter then why did you bring it up?

you've played all these great courses in the last 3 years? why don't you update your courses played and name names.

A much bigger factor in bringing those big tournaments are the facilities to accommodate a large number of people. Course quality is down the list of priorities for those events.

Also, pros go where the money is. They don't have a lot of time to check out sweet courses for the fun of it.

No they aren't DGPT courses, but Adam Hammes and Cale Leiviska have played the Lake Superior Open at Mont Du Lac in the recent past, and both are forces to be reckoned with on the national tour.

Being from Kansas I have only played 2 courses in Wisconsin those being Token Creek and Capital Springs. Of the 162 courses in 13 states I have played those are two of the most beautiful and professionally run DG courses I have played. Good on you Wisconsin. Hoping to make Highbridge Hills mid October weather permitting.

Haven't played HH yet. But I will say this, living along the Mn Wi border, I feel damned lucky to be playing disc golf out here. I've passed on moving back to someplace I could play year round due to the crap courses they've got there, and that includes and is not limited to Fountain Hills. Sorry, not sorry, but it's part of the only reason I like living here...sure as hell ain't cause of cheese curds...

Wisco courses smell like stale cheese and desperation.

3-discs at best for the whole state.
