If you’ve read my bio, you’ve learned that I lived in Milwaukee for 10 years. While living in that magnificent city, I learned many things…an enjoyment for delicious wine, an appreciation for cigars while visiting Uhle’s Cigar Shop, a new found love for the Milwaukee Brewers, admiration for the Milwaukee Admirals, a passion for Alverno College and the education I received there, and finally an addiction to Disc Golfing. Not Frisbee Golf, not Frolf… Disc Golf.
The Greater Milwaukee area is crawling with Disc Golf courses to meet all levels of expertise. Abendschein Park in Oak Creek is perfect for the beginner. Lime Kiln is an amazing 9 hole course in Grafton that has numerous hills and steep embankments. Brown Deer and Valley View with their tree lined fairways is a challenge for even the experienced. So many courses to choose from, so little time.
One of my best experiences involved the PDGA (Professional Disc Golf Association) Am World Championships that were held in Milwaukee in 2007. I was a volunteer and worked hard and had a blast!
I was very disappointed to see the 2 courses here. Now, I know, Disc Golf isn’t as popular as it could be. Marquette is a college town, after all. But, I miss the serious Disc Golfing that I’ve experienced. Perhaps it’ll catch on in the future. If you’re not familiar with the sport, I encourage you… check it out. You’ll be addicted too!
