I've lived in both Massachusetts and in DFW Texas area, and wouldn't give top marks to either place. MA has great courses but they are spread out and the winter weather lasts forever and is brutal. Texas is great on the weather front and the courses are plentiful, but the quality of the courses is a lot lower on average -- they just don't have the right kind of land to make the truly spectacular courses you have in some other parts of the country.
I'd have to put a plug in for Spotsylvania/Fredericksburg, VA, as being one of the best places to be. They have a great local scene, a pair of excellent -- and very different -- public courses, and a couple of the best private courses I know of (Hawk Hollow and The Grange). And from what I've heard, they've got a couple other courses in the works. They're also well-positioned for weekend trips, 2-3 hours away from a lot of amazing courses and tournaments.
For me, a disc golf fantasy location isn't just the local courses but the proximity to other great courses and tournaments. I've got about a 4-hour driving cap on what I'm willing to do for a weekend tourney; size of tourney is proportional to how far I am willing to travel. Spotsy/Fredericksberg is really close to a lot of top-tier tournaments, which gives it bonus points. But the best part is that they really do have top-tier, amazing people as part of their club.
