If you want to take your family vacation to a nice resort on a nice lake in the forest of North central Wisconsin, and still be able to get in some good challenging disc golf on the side, Sandy Point resort is the place for you. This course is the home of one of the major tournaments in the upper midwest every year.

The Northwoods Open attracts pro disc golfers from all over Wisconsin, Minnesota, and many other states in the mid west. The course is typical of courses in the wooded areas of Wisconsin and Minnesota that are carved out of the woods and are tough technical courses that require power and touch to play successfully.
