Campfire Conversation:

Eric and Ana welcome disc golfer Andrew Kangas into The Cabin as we talk about disc golf as one of the great – if not underrated – outdoor summer activities in Wisconsin. Turns out Wisconsin ranks as the 4th best disc golf state in U.S., with 426 courses, 165 courses w/ 18 + holes, 124 leagues, 51 stores that sell disc golf gear. Andrew discussed some of the finer points of the game as well as the equipment  - which is relatively simple, making it a low-cost sport to get into. A variety of course options we also discussed, from rural in the North Woods like Sandy Point Disc Golf Ranch in Lac du Flambeau, WI to urban in southeast Wisconsin like Dretzka Park in Milwaukee. Some disc golf courses are situated on regular golf courses, some follow pathways in the forest. The variety makes play a unique experience every time Other venues discussed included Rollin Ridge in Reedsville, Silver Creek Park in Manitowoc, a 36-hole disc golf courses right on the shores of Lake Michigan, and others across the state.
