First tee sign Carved out of the Northwoods, this challenging 25-to 27-hole course is fun for all skill levels. Your five-year-old can play and your parents. Even grandparents can play.

Simply put, disc golf is golf played with a Frisbee-like disc. Your target is the steel basket or pole hole. Count the number of throws it takes to get from the tee-pad to the basket and mark your score. Professional or advanced par is Par 3 on each hole. Family par is Par 4 on each hole.

Disc Golf is like taking a hike in the woods
and playing a game at the same time
.

The Sandy Point Ranch course is located in the forested property away from the lake and cabins. It is well marked with tee-signs and directional arrows, with two to three pin placements per hole, but only one set of baskets. Benches, trash cans and out-houses are located throughout the course. Golf discs, score cards and pencils are made available to all resident guests of the resort, and to recreational players who pay a $5 green fee.

Disc Golf is Growing

Just to give you some idea about how much and how fast disc golf has grown in the state of Wisconsin alone, Sandy Point was the 11th course to establish in the state. Our first nine holes (and soon 18, then 24, now 27) officially opened in 1994. Today, 25 years later, there are over 299 established courses in the state as reported by the PDGA. It is not only a fun and easy recreational activity for the whole family, it's a professional sport.

A whole world of disc golf exists, including a professional organization called the Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA), which has over 99,000 members worldwide.

The Recreational Disc Golf Association (RDGA) is also a group dedicated to developing and encouraging the family and recreational aspects of the game. This Association was formed by Steady Ed Headrick in 1995 while he was visiting Sandy Point Resort. Resort owners, Mike and Michele, and their daughters, Willow and Camille, are members of both associations.

In the state of Wisconsin alone there are some 300 courses. The disc golf community is a close-knit group – lot like a family. And newcomers are always welcome! Find out more about disc golf in the state at Terry Miller's Site, Lifetime Discsports.

In 2011, the course was re-numbered to reflect the true-25-27 holes represented here. The infamous "Stu's Cafe," which features the former holes #4-A; #4-B; and #4-C are now holes #5, #6, #7. It will take some getting used to; however, aside from adding a few new tee pads and pin placements, the course will play the same.

Long tee pads are available for holes 6, 8, 14 and 15. Long hole 15 has become a Sandy Point Signature!

Sandy Point Resort and Disc Golf Ranch is the home of the Wisconsin Disc Golf Hall of Fame, initiated in 1996. Stop by the Recreation House between rounds and check out the pride of Wisconsin disc sports.
