East Bethel's Blue Ribbon Pines is Minnesota's most acclaimed disc golf course, and probably the state's best. But if you're looking to get a round in, live in the city, and don't want to drive more than an hour round-trip, Acorn is where it's at. The 18-hole course has all the requisite shots: downhill drives, tree-obscured heaves, and huge hooks. And even though the park is just 10 minutes from downtown St. Paul, it's so heavily wooded and hilly that you can plausibly pretend to be hours up north. The upkeep is solid and the pin placement changes often enough to keep things fresh. With the swamps and forested holes interspersed among more wide-open offerings, it's challenging without being frustrating.
