West Michigan- Flip City.

I recently played BlueGill DGC in Wayland, it's a private course owned by Joe Gill and his family. Every type of shot is covered. Very challenging and fun. Wish I could play it all the time.

What a waste of a hole. I don't get why someone would design a hole with water that wouldn't come in to play...

The pin is located behind a second section of water. But it's true, it's easily defeated with a hyzer into the hill on the left or a jls (for me) right at it. The next hole on the course is the toughest of the water holes. It's about 290ish, pond on the left side and the pin is located on a perpendicular landmass that is about 35' deep with another pond behind it. It's fun.

I find that everyone's opinion of "best" varies. I prefer longer and less forgiving courses that kick my ass when I play them. So with that in mind, here are my top courses in Illinois (separated by halves because the state is damn long).

Down south: Foundation Park in Centralia, IL short tees to long pins (the 18-hole, not the 9)
North: McNaughton Park in Pekin, IL long tees

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.

While technically Coyote Point is Socal, and I hear it is fantastic, further south is more like the real Socal. La Mirada near Los Angelas is my fvorite and my home course. Oak Park in Pasadena is the original and Huntington Beach is the second permanent course ever built. (DG Historical courses) Morley Park in San Diego is even further south and that is a really nice course. PM me if you ever want to play La Mirada.

Alaska - Kincaid....but we're building a mountain course this June where the longest hole will be over 1000' down hill. I think this will surpass Kincaid. I believe our State Champions in 2011 will be held at Kincaid 2x18 and 2x18 at Hilltop.
It's all about discipline and focused practice!

Michigan has a wealth of fine courses.

I prefer very challenging (if not punishing) types. My top 3 are Blue Gill (Wayland), Leviathan (Ludington) and Flip City (Shelby). There are another dozen world class courses just a notch below those and more going in every year.

Dual course locations at Milford (Kensington Black Locust and Toboggan), Whitmore Lake (Independence Lake Park, Picnic and Chuck D. Memorial), Ludington (Mason County Park, Beast and Goliath) and Dexter (Hudson Mills, Original and Monster).

Single course locations at Traverse City (Hickory Hills), Oshtemo (Oshtemo Twp Park), Battle Creek (Kimble Pines), Lansing (Grand Woods), Ypsilanti (Rolling Hills), Albion (Victory Park) and Holly (Circle D Ranch).

We even have a few courses which polarize its players, garnering love or hate and sometimes both: Kalamazoo (Coldbrook), Flint (Goldenrod) and Huron Twp (Willow).

I must admit that Oak Grove was special, played it in a bit of a rush.....I promise to go back and pay it proper homage.

And....I must must must get up to Casitas.

How does Yucaipa compare to Casitas?
