That is a killer round at BH. It was in the longs when I played it too. I have to agree that the woods are very punishing, to a point that is near ridiculous. I love those courses but they are a bit unrealistic when you go into the woods. Definitly check out kaposia, it is kind of the spokesman course for Minnesota dg (if that makes sense)

Moraine State Park:

Awesome course.

Deer Lakes Park:

Still under construction, but all holes are playable. 3 awesome par fives, and the requisite 900 foot shot thru a tight fairway.

Knob Hill:

Incredible variety in difficulty. The A pins make it seem easy, while the c pins will make you hurt.

After playing in Austin a few times, I feel the need to revise my top 10:

1. Circle R Ranch - Wimberly, TX - Rolling Meadows Course
2. Lester Lorch Park - Cedar Hill, TX - Beaver Course
3. Circle R Ranch - Wimberly, TX - Circle Hill Course
4. Lester Lorch Park - Cedar Hill, TX - Coyote Course
5. Audubon Park DGC- Garland, TX
6. Z Boaz DGC - Ft. Worth, TX
7. Jimmy Porter Park DGC- Carrollton, TX
8. Slaughter Creek DGC - Austin, TX
9. Crawford DGC - Dallas, TX
10. Veteran's Park DGC - Arlington, TX

Still aching to play some out-of-state courses, especially in the Ozarks and West Coast....though I've heard some great things about the North East too. I just need to find the time and $$$ to make it happen...

Anybody interested in paying me to travel the country and play disc golf??? I could write some great reviews, maybe take some pics...eh? eh? :lol:

1. Horseshoe Canyon: Jasper, AR - Massive elevation, massive length, huge rocks to shoot over and onto, great scenery. Must play!
2. Waterworks: Kansas City, MO - Like dying and going to disc golf heaven. The shots are amazing, the view is beautiful, and the putting greens have more roll then I've ever seen.
3. Peninsula Park: Iowa City, IA - New course. Long, with tight wooded shots, and booming open shots. Not much elevation, but makes use of nice doglegs. Did I mention it was long?
4. McNaughton: Pekin, IL - Championship level course. Not too tight, but enough to make you shoot accurately.
5. Rosedale: Kansas City, MO - The down under course is super tight and shot; it will test your putter and mids off the tee. The up top course is a great place to let it air out, but has enough OB to keep you in check. If you putt well here, you'll put up a great number.
6. Thomas (Legion) Park: Cedar Rapids, IA - Amazing use of land. There's a huge hill right in the middle of the park, and you shoot up, down, and across it. Starts off pretty wooded and technical before opening up. Some water does come into play.
7. Turkey Creek: Coralville, IA - Where I really learned to play disc golf. Not too long, but the back is super technical, and has some very sloped putting greens. You can watch potential 2's turn into 5's if you aren't careful.
8. Northwood Park: Morton, IL - Nice course with some shorter distanced holes that are very duce able if you're accurate. The trees will eat your discs if you don't stay in the fairway though. the back 9 is heaven for overhand throwers.
9. Northshore Park: Fayetteville, AR - Open course with a few tightly wooded shots. The open stuff should keep low numbers off your card as long as you don't get eaten by the wind while putting (oh, and there's plenty of that, seeing how the course is on a lake). The wooded holes can put a 5 or worse on your card, so play smart and play safe. And watch the water on #12; dogleg right with water on the left. You won't be the first one to find it :)
10. Sugar Bottom: North Liberty, IA: Nice and secluded, with good use of elevation. Up hills, down hills, tops of hills. If you've got a big enough arm, you can put up some great numbers here, but don't let tee shots get away from you, or you can be in the green with double digits or worse. This course is really a test of how smart you can play, knowing when to run at the basket and when to lay up.

Adventure Mountain - Vail Mountain, Vail, Colorado (Only playable mid-summer)
Edora Disc Golf Park, Ft. Collins, Colorado (If you don't play it durning the week, plan on a 4-4.5 hour round because of all the college kids)

Maybe Akron will be up there soon with the new 27 layout? Deeper in the woods please....

Codorus should be switched with the Woodshed. I really only enjoyed the non-lake and X holes though. Cross country or whatever holes were not put in yet.
