The Toboggan Course, located in beautiful Kensington Metropark in Milford, Michigan is one of the game’s most challenging. Because it is temporary and usually only available for play once a year for the US Amateur Disc Golf Championships, the rough is rough and the holes are long. This complex doubles as an actual toboggan run and ski area in the winter, hence the dramatic elevation changes. At a modest par 62, sometimes breaking par is difficult enough. Add in the occasional light rain shower, and it could be a recipe for disaster. But not today.
It has been a few weeks since the PDGA National Tour was in action. After Ricky Wysocki’s win at the Hall of Fame Classic, many of the top pros traveled overseas for a trip around Europe, and after hitting the EuroTour, they return home for the 2013 Discraft Great Lakes Open. A huge field of the world’s greatest players will converge on the world-famous Toboggan course in Milford, Michigan to test their skills and compete in the tournament, earning points in the National Tour Elite Series Drive to the Championship.
