Disc golf course review of Bunker Hills Park

Updated on March 14, 2015

Disc Golf Course

The course has been open for a couple of years now, I wish they would have made it 18 holes like it was originally planned. The course is pretty well designed on the plot of land they have. The course I hear is full of poison ivy, so be careful. The description and ratings for the course on dgcoursereview is here to check out.

Update on Course

The course designer told me the plans were to make the course 18 holes, hopefully they will do the other nine in the near future. It is only 9 holes now. It's a money issue. It's going to be the first 9. Still some good challenging holes and some long holes.

I have played the course a couple of times, it is a decent set up for a 9 hole, I wish it was 18. It is not hard but has some interesting holes. Number 8 is really strange, it is basically a horseshoe, if you tomahawk from the tee box to the right, you can get to the basket, if not you go down 200 feet, turn right around a corner, then back 200 feet to the basket. Very well marked with the nicest signs you will ever see.

Latest update

The course hasn't had many reviews lately, I think the reason is the course unfortunately has been abused and run down. Bunker hills park is on on the nicest parks in the Twin Cities Metro area, they should have spent the money to make the disc golf course top of the line like the rest of the park.

There is a link to the reviews on Disc golf review from others that have played the course. The course gets an overall rating of only a 2.4 out of a possible 5. Here is the link to the reviews.

It's not all bad, there are some good holes and if you are in the area, it's worth the stop to give it a play, I wouldn't make a special trip though.
