Silver Creek Park has become one of the finest in the Midwest. The course winds along Silver Creek which flows into Lake Michigan between hole number 18 and 19. The picturesque landscape makes you feel like you are just strolling through the park; golf discs in hand of course. Local business sponsors were secured in the summer of 2000 and the first round of disc golf was played on Halloween.

2012 brought several major park improvements adding 19 new concrete tee pads, 10 new basket placements and 26 new sign locations. The new 27 hole layout offers great variety of play and challenge for all skill levels. New tee signs will be added offering new and existing sponsors an oppportunity to promote their businesses while supporting these volunteer course projects.

The design was started by a group of local enthusiasts and perfected by "Duster" Don Hoffman, one of Disc Golf's finest course designers. Duster is one of the leaders of the Wisconsin Disc Sports Association and was also the PDGA Region 6 coordinator for many years.


Some of the courses' interesting features include: hole four playing over Silver Creek, 6 holes along the creek, a 337' hole on a 15% up hill grade, hole thirteen's basket planted at the edge of an 80 foot drop off, multiple elevations and the creek challenging players at the front nine practice basket, , hole seventeen along Lake Michigan's sand dunes, manicured fairways, challenging wooded holes, up hill and down hill shots. The park itself offers walking and biking trails, sand beaches on Lake Michigan, playground areas, picnic areas throughout the park, a large soccer field, great fishing in Silver Creek, and plenty of room to relax.
