Disc golf book

Great disc golf book available to lead you through disc golf from a newbie to a veteran. How to play and how to play better.

Blue ribbon pines is a 27 hole championship caliber Disc golf course set in the woods and fields of Ham Lake Mn. The course length is 8300 ft. with a par of 87 for the 27 holes.

The course is a combination of very challenging holes that require touch and accuracy. Most shots are through the woods, and the trees will add several strokes to your score. The course is flat. That is a plus and a minus. It's good if you can't walk up hills or if you want to play a lot of holes. We always play 54 holes and you don't even get tired from walking. Not that it is easy, the tight fairways and several hundred well-placed trees make it very challenging. If you stay out of the ponds on 4 holes, you should not lose any discs.

Blue ribbon pines is a pay for play course owned by Ray Jordan. He is a disc golfer, and he puts a lot of money into the course to keep it in great condition. The course is always clean and well groomed.

Blue ribbon pines is open year round. The tee pads are always snow free which makes a huge difference in footing when playing in the snow. They even plow the fairways in the winter if the snow gets deep. I have played over 80 rounds at Blue ribbon pines in the past 2 years. It is by far my favorite course.

The course was designed by Tim Gill who does course design through Par 72 disc golf. He also designed the courses at Telemark ski resort in Wisconsin, the new course at Elm Creek Park reserve, and the new course at Bunker Hills Park.

The Minnesota Majestic disc golf tournament, the biggest disc golf tournament in Minnesota. The tournament is held here every year late June. Check it out if you want to see a big time disc golf tournament.

If you live anywhere near the twin cities in Mn, you need to go play Blue ribbon pines. Once you do, you won't want to play anywhere else.


Cale Leiviska

One of the top disc golfers in the world now is Cale Leviska. Cale has spent many hours playing this course over the past years since it opened. Check out Cale on PDGA to see how he has moved up over the past couple years and will likely get better.

Cale is also one of the founders of Prodigy disc golf that started in late 2012 and has grown rapidly over the last year. Check out video below to see Cale at BRP.

The Minnesota Majestic

BRP is one of the top courses in Minnesota. It's one of the 3 courses where the Minnesota Majestic is played each year. The Majestic takes place in 3rd week in June. 2013 was the 26th year of the Majestic tournament and BRP has been one of the courses since it was built.

The Minnesota Majestic is the only national stop on the pro disc golf tour, and it attracts most of the top pro disc golfers. The winner of the event this year Cale Leiviska, is a local disc golfer who has become one of the best. He had to beat Dave Feldberg to win. If you follow disc golf, you know that Dave is one of the best ever to play the game.

Ray Jordan, the owner and builder of BRP is a great guy who built the course because he loves to play which makes the course much better. He puts a big part of the money he takes in from the players back into the course. The course is very nicely groomed, and Ray upgrades and improves the course all the time.

Ray runs a landscaping business, but you can find him at the course on most Saturday mornings, and he might even play a round with you if he has time. Check out the course and you will fall in love with it.

Hole #4

The picture below is of hole #4. The hole is the signature hole for the course. It's a great hole but it's one of the most frustrating. It's a 400 ft strait hole that has a fairway that is about 12 feet wide. If you go off the fairway, there is lots of trouble. Woods on the right and woods and out of bounds on the left. It's really hard to get back in the fairway if you get off of it.
