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.

But it is close enough to the Bay Area to be considered a part of it. San Jose Parque de la Raza is a nice 9 holer.
In Southern California, Morley Field and La Mirada are the 2 big park old school courses. I love them both. Everybody should play these courses before they die. I heard that La Mirada doesn't do annual tournaments any longer, which is too bad, because I would love to come down and play at tourney there, and so would lots of other players. Casitas is newer and on a much bigger landscape, not groomed like La Mirada Park or Balboa Park. But it is sweetness.
Another area that is simply great is Tahoe. My favorite is Zephyr Cove, but close second is Bijou. So many great courses around there, and more going in the ground every day!

Since this is my area I will indulge you. The Chico area is fantastic DG with Lava Creek (Paradise), Riverbend DGC (Oroville), and Peregrine Point (which is in Chico that also has the Sierra Nevada Brewery). There is also many great courses on the north coast in Mendo and even in the town of Weed (COS is the course name). These courses are no Zephyr Cove or Dela but they are great none the less. JMO

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
