Best course in your State

Postby Barbikes » Sun May 20, 2007 7:15 pm

I was playing a local course (Seatac) yesterday and I came upon a retired couple in their Minnie Winnie that were on a Disc Golf vacation. They started in Vermont and had played 17 states and 3 provinces. They asked me which course was the best in Washington state. I told them Fort Steilacoom in South Tacoma.
The question got me thinking about that kind of vacation and how cool it would be to know what the top rated course is in each state.
So what do you think? What one course in your state/province would you tell a tourist is the best?

I prefer Rockburn over Seneca or Patapsco. Although I haven't played the new Seneca layout, but I haven't heard anything but praise and I plan on making the trip.

Codorus is way underrated in PA, I think because of the lack of large tournaments it lacks exposure. Definitely a close second, or even a tie, for me is Nockamixon.

And you can't beat the Grange. I think every golfer dreams of having Mike's backyard.

Hehe, good topic for feisty bar conversations!

For WA, I'd say Seatac is my fave. Steilli is good, being that there's SO much variety there, but as far as having one intended layout, Seatac reigns supreme for me. I've also heard Lucky Mud is incredible, as well as Four Mounds out in Spokane.

And as far as OR, Dom and I discussed it a bit, and though he disagrees, the best I've played there was Milo McIver (quite possibly the best course I've ever played) . I haven't played Whistler's yet, but I know the same argument goes on with OR locals that have played both.

California is really 2 states, so...

Best course in So-Cal: I'd say Lake Casitas.

Best in Nor-Cal: most likely De Laveaga (unfortunately still haven't gotten to play it :()

Sorry to be a stickler, but Ewing is in Des Moines...unless there's also a Ewing somewhere in the QC that you're talking about.

Ferretdance-

Rockburn and Ptap were always fighting for #1 in my mind with rockburn edging out Ptap as a result of personal preference.

Untill.....
I played the new Seneca yesterday.
it takes the cake with ease
1-27 holes
2-beautiful aesthetics
3-lots of short/mid tech holes (my favorite)

lets just say my wizards rocs and dx gazelles got alot of work!

Kentucky - Yellow Creek Park. Kereiakes is great and I love Iroquois. But Yellow Creek gives you everything those courses offer and adds water shots.

Tennessee - Sanders Ferry Park. This is a no brainer slam dunk. Great shot variety, water, beautiful scenery. You've got to love it.

Also, Waterworks is in Missouri, not Kansas.

NJ - Campgaw
NY - Warwick
PA - Tyler (If you don't believe me, come for the Yetter and play the C-pins) I would say Nock or Little Lehigh if they were in the ground now the same as they were for Worlds. Wasn't a big fan of Codorus...
DE - Brandywine
MD - Seneca
VA - Hawk Hollow
CT - Wickham
MA - Maple Hill
ME - Dragan Field
NC - Renaissance
SC - Winthrop

I guess that's about all I got.

Out of curiosity, can I ask why you weren't fond of Codorus?

And having only played Tyler once, in the A pins, I haven't had the chance to really see the whole course...
