New Keyes Peak Disc Golf Course
September 30, 2014
Keyes Peak Recreation Area has added another new attraction; a disc golf course running up and down Keyes Peak. This free course winds through the woods and along the ski slope with holes ranging from 137 foot par 3 to a 420 foot par 4. Par on this 9 hole course is 29. The signature hole, #7, starts at the top of Keyes Peak with a beautiful view of Keyes Lake and the Ski Lodge down below. This hole boasts the longest vertical drop of any disc golf course in Wisconsin and offers a great fall colors photo-op. If you don’t own your own discs, you may sign out a set of discs from Keyes Lake Campground located next to Keyes Peak. To access the course, take Hwy 70/101 south from Florence for 2.4 miles. Turn left to stay on Hwy 101 for 0.8 mile then turn left at the sign for Keyes Peak Disc Golf Scenic Overview to a parking area.
Disc Golf is becoming very popular with young adults and families with 100 new courses added every year. Florence also has an 18-hole course which starts near the parking lot at the Elementary school and winds through the woods and near the athletic fields.
