My trip to Highbridge hills

Three friends and I took a trip to Highbridge hills in June. We left the Twin cities on Friday morning and stopped and played 2 courses in Wisconsin on the way. I can't remember the name of the first one. It wasn't memorable. We then stopped at Telemark ski resort and played the course there, very nice course, worth playing again.

We got to Highbridge Hills at around 6Pm and set up the camper and played Blueberry Hill that evening. Saturday morning we got up and played all 6 courses that day. We played 100 holes in the one day. After playing 62 holes the day before. To finish the day off, we were at the Chestnut Grove course, we met a guy there that was a regular on the course, he was showing us some shots and he aced a 210 foot hole with his putter, what a cool way to end the day.

You can lose some discs here if your not careful, check out some good tips about how not to lose your discs.

The Courses

The Chestnut Grove course is fairly open, it was only 9 holes when we were there but the plans are to be expanded to 18 holes soon. The Gold course was my least favorite course there. Not that it is a bad course, but it is extremely long, the course is just over 10,000 ft for 18 holes. Hole #8 is just under 1400ft by itself, it is a par 5 though. Blueberry Hill, Granite Ridge, Woodland Greens, and the Bear, are all very well laid out and fun to play. They vary the terrain and you go in and out of the woods. They are all challenging and worth the time to play.

There are 4 other courses that they are working on and they say will be open this year. They are Bear Woodland, Blue Ridge, Granberry, Whitetail.

Just got an update from John at Highbridge Hills, the Blue ridge course and the Granberry course, and the other nine of Chestnut are being played now. Whitetale and the completion of The Bear will happen this fall and winter.

I know that there have been some financial issues over the past few years and I'm sad to hear that. I hope they can keep it going and keep improving the courses. If you're in the area at all and you want to play a very unique group of courses, get over there and check it out.
