Silver Creek Park Disc Golf- Manitowoc, WI

We have been to many disc golf courses in our area. Recently we visited Silver Creek Park Disc Golf Course for the first time in Manitowoc,WI and I am very happy to announce I have a new favorite.

This place has everything I love. It’s like disc golfing while hiking. Upon arrival you will head to the field house.

There is a nice parking area here and bathrooms on the side of the field house. I suggest using them as this is a 27 basket course. IMG_1152

Your first basket is located a short walk from the parking area. Take a look at the map provided and watch for a bright yellow donation can at basket #1.

My first impressions were wonderful. Trees were everywhere and water hazards are located at many of the baskets.

There are hills around every corner….and when I say hills I mean HILLS. Here is basket #13. If you over throw your disc you are going to be making a long hike down to then again make the long hike back up to finish the round.

Then you move onto basket #14 to then make the throw across the soccer field from the top of a big hill over across to the the rivers edge. All while making sure you don’t over step the tee pad or you will be taking a tumble down the hill yourself.

You will eventually cover this entire park from every angle. There are bridges to cross under

and then over.

There are baskets that bring you right along the Lake Michigan shore

with one basket that you will be throwing your disc straight at the lake with very little room for mistakes.

You may even get lucky and run into some wildlife while playing here….we did.

All in all I would say this course is one of the very best we have ever played at. The signage is spectacular and the terrain is a great workout.

There is no doubt that you will enjoy playing here. However, I would make a few suggestion to anyone thinking about visiting. This course is steps from the Lake Michigan shoreline which is always cooler than inland. A light jacket may be appropriate. This is also a very long, strenuous course with numerous hills. You may want to have a snack with you for refueling. We actually played the first 14 baskets which then brought us back near the parking lot where we stopped to have a quick snack before finishing. (we packed some snacks ourselves and had them in our vehicle)

And one more thing…..if your find yourself searching in the tall grasses/wooded areas watch for poison ivy…..it’s everywhere!

Have you ever tried disc golf?
