Seriously, I'm going to have to plan a family vacation just so I can go empty the bag on that hole.

A little late for this year unless you can make it out here that quick, but keep you eyes on this tournament.

It's called Kiss the Sky. It's played at this course usually last weekend in June, or middle of July. It's played at that course and that is the signature hole on the Aspen, Colorado course.

Just got back from a business trip to Sacramento, and added Cordon Park in Grass Valley to my list. Locals were heaping praise on it, like it's the best course in Cali not called La Mirada or Dela. Some touted it as even better than those two, and among the best in the country. Definitely had some good holes, and good use of the topography. But it does not qualify as one of the best in the country.

The two best courses (all layouts) I've played are Warwick and Maple Hill. The only thing that puts Maple Hill second is my slight dislike of the water holes. But they're definitely very fair and reward strong and accurate shots.

Borderlands Blue to Blue (long) has owned me time and time again. I know what I need to do on each hole, just cant get over the intimidation. Its so intense.

I will definitley go play Maple Hill this summer, and probably play conservative as all hell.

We should meet up and do that. Pretty much the only course driving distance from me that I haven't played.

ARRGGHH

That's right. My wife and I were in Grass Valley yesterday, with our discs, stopped to have breakfast, and then totally spaced on that course. We don't exactly get up that way very often. Frick!!

Let me know, I'll gladly guide if I'm able to that day.

although dela is widely recongnized as one of the best courses in the country, i'd rather play bijou in lake tahoe, or stafford lake in novato california over dela any day.
bijou in all longs is just one epic hole after another... up and down hills, through heavy woods, and out into praries. 27 holes of awe!
stafford is just gorgeous and extremely challenging. tons of elevation, and one big technical hole after another. i learn a few things every time i play there.
toney's mountain golf may be the most challenging course in the state. it's on a private ranch and is just completely insane but VERY cool! i can't think of a better place to spend a disc golf weekend... teepees, pitbulls to protect you from the bears, awsome family, breathtaking scenery and the craziest course i've ever seen.

between those three i don't know if i can choose. but i think they're all cooler than dela... which IS a fantastic course.
