I've only played in Richmond so I couldn't really say. I do hear a LOT of good things about Hawk Hollow.

Note that California is really two states...

SoCal: If you only play one...Coyote Point DGC @ Lake Casitas, near Ventura. This is my favorite course I've played thus far (and I've played over 40 highly rated courses).

NorCal: Echoing Jesse, if you only play one, make it DeLaveaga, it is a classic course and very old disc golf culture. If more, Golden Gate Park, Stafford, Napa Valley (awesome course!), Grass Valley, Penn Valley, Bijou (Tahoe), Markleeville, New Hogan Dam, etc., come to mind.

NC is the only state I've played enough courses to say what the best course is. My vote for NC is High Country. Renny Gold, Castle Hayne, and Hornet's Nest are close behind. Just played Nevin and Elon (Angry Beaver) this weekend and once these courses mature and get beat in they'll only get better. Nevin is already a great course and has the potential to be one of the best in the state IMO.

Best course in Iowa is probably Pickard. Ewing is quite nice too, but Pickard takes the cake.

I also haven't played a ton in MO, but Waterworks in KC is an amazing course as well!

I live in Oregon so of course it's a no brainer. Milo Mciver 1st with Whistlers Bend a close second. 8) MOB47 may argue this though since he's from southern Oregon. :D

I am curious what the people in Texas think. I haven't really played outside the central texas area but so far my favorite in the state is Live Oak Gold in Ingleside Texas(not live oak in San Antonio). This course is a hidden gem, and requires everything you got. I take 2-3 trips to the coast every year and now make a point to spend at least a day playing Live Oak Gold and Live Oak Red(pretty easy course, but provides a nice warmup before taking on Gold).

Metcenter in Austin is making its way up. The course is really starting to flex it's muscles now that they it has been cleaned up a little. Sucks it is on a flood plain, really not playable with poor weather. I have been stopping there almost every sunday afternoon on my way out of town. I enjoy it a lot more than Cirlce C at the moment. Best part of the course is the sign when you drive in. It goes something like this "Metcenter is for tenant use only. Trespassers will be Violated." Found it pretty hilarious, considering it is a business center, and the sign is made to look all official and shit.

Best Courses I've played..

KS - Oak Park : Full 18, 2 pads for each hole, mostly flat lots of trees, water and doglegs.
Herman Hill : Full 18, 2 pin positions and pad positions. Superb course if you ask me, blind shots, up shots, down shots, water and dog legs. Has a bit of everything!

If you're ever in Southeastern/South-Central Kansas these two courses should not dissapoint!

Played Conifer today for the first time. Great course, but not as good as leadville. The steamboat course was great, but I hear they moved it down the mountain.

In Oregon, there is no question in my mind: Horning's Hideout (the "Gold" course) is better than either of those courses (I played all of them again just a couple weeks back)...and there are 2 other great courses there as well.

Milo McIver is wide open, poorly maintained, hard to follow, has locals constantly playing alternate course layouts (with crossing fairways, throwing down on other groups, etc.), and kinda boring if it weren't for the nice setting. Only interesting thing there is the longer distances (long drives, long approaches, and long putts galore). But then again, Oregon is full of nice settings, and I would judge Whistler's Bend to be the best in that category. Only problem with Whistler's Bend is that it is not very challenging...I scored 7 birdies my first round, and I'm usually playing just under par on a typical pro level course.

I've played just about every course in Oregon now, except Dexter...that's next on my list.

I will 3rd Hawk Hollow for the best course in Virginia, but being private, travelers might have problems playing it on short notice. As far as public courses, Bryan Park in Richmond is tops for fun, New Quarter (Williamsburg) is the best maintained. Falling Creek in Bedford gets good reviews for fun with some longer holes. If you like wooded courses, don't miss Elk Creek in Appomattox. If anybody is headed this way, PM me and we can play.

Postby vtbuzzz » Sun Aug 29, 2010 10:20 am

Vermont-I would have to say either black falls in montgomery center 2 sets of tees and 2 sets of pins all 4 nicely different courses. Plus there is a new course 1/2 mile down the road called cherry hill which is definitly a pro rated course man it's tough

Or sugar bush both the peak course and the base course fantastic day of golf right there

Glad to hear someone else likes Bryan Park. I've heard that the local scene is at odds with the community (something like DG isn't welcome in the park).

i will 2nd waterworks for Missouri, but its very near kansas too.

if you travel to other parts of the state, i'd recommend albert oakland back course, in Columbia (ONLY if you can find a local to play with). the redesign of the course has made it very confusing. they may have fixed the tee sign and directional issues now, i don't know. also, lots of good courses in St. Louis. Sioux Passage, Endicott, and JB are all good ones. there are a couple of good ones in Vichy, MO too, but you will probably want to contact a local for those as well. difficult to navigate.
