2020 Wisconsin Tour Review
Brad Wendt January 2021
The 2020 WI Disc Golf Tour ended up being quite interesting. Seven tour stops did cancel and one rescheduled. The WDSA fully backed every Td in their decisions to either move forward operating or cancel their tournament. The tour also allowed Td’s to PDGA Sanction as a C Tier instead of A or B Tier. Two stops took the C Tier change as there was much disruption in normal business as well as life in general. Committed tournament sponsorships were lost to local government mandates limiting or closing facilities. This happened to both canceled tournaments and events that were completed.
New Disc Golf Tour Events: SHOOT THE MOON and HIGHBRIDGE HILLS OPEN
Joining the tour this year will be 4th Annual Shoot The Moon taking place at Veterans Hills in Viroqua, WI. The VFW has been very kind in blessing use of land for an 18 hole disc golf course. The property is a mix of thick woods and open areas among hilly terrain of varying degree. Technical, up hill, down hill, tight woods and big open spaces force you to use your entire bag of discs as well as your bag of tricks. Real golf placement is required on many throws. Make sure to get the birdie holes. Playing this course blind will cost some extra strokes.
One Project at a Time
Jim Van Lanen Jr December 2013
When volunteers get together and work toward a goal, the result is multiplied by the effort. One of the 2012 WDSA supported projects, Sugar Creek Park in Brussels, reflects this spirit in Spades. Project organizer, Tim ”Hildy” Hildebrand has a vision for Door County which includes numerous disc golf courses. Looking at many potential locations including Potawatami State Park and Penninsula State Park just to name a few, Hildy decided to focus his efforts on a smaller, less well known county park aptly named Sugar Creek.
