Floral Park in Floral City, Fl which is about 12 minutes north of Brooksville, FL (former home of Grand Canyon). There is this great resturant/bar called Shamrock Inn that makes the best burgers and has the coldest beer in town. We go there about every Sunday after our handicap round then try to play another round with 2 pitchers in us. Another place is Coach's Sports Bar that has 30 beers on tap with many TV's in downtown Inverness near Whispering Pine disc golf course.
There is a place in Clearwater on SR 60 (aka Gulf to Bay Blvd) called Pete and Shorty's that has great burgers and cold beer. It is about 5 minutes from the Cliff Stevens course and Coachman course. Yes, the Grand Canyon is probably going to be purchased by Hernando county as a mountain bike/disc golf course in the future, but it will take a while.
You should drop by the disc golf store I work at Sun King Disc Sports in Brookville, FL. It is about 40 minutes north of Clearwater but on the way to the Red Hawk course which is home of the Players Cup.
Anytime I'm in Dallas, TX I go to the Old Monk (just North of downtown on Knox / Henderson...about a mile E of 75). They have a good selection on tap but the prices are a little high. I just like the atmosphere of the place more than anything (except on Fri/Sat nights whe the trendy crowd takes over), and they have some awesome food. My favorites are the "better cheeseburgers" (with cheeses like sage derby, whiskey chedder, stilton, bruder basil, etc), Guiness beef stew, fish and chips, and the french onion soup. I always look forward to driving into town, heading straight for Old Monk, and sitting down with a giant burger and a glass of Maredsous 8 or Chimay Grand Reserve.
As for the great course nearby...there really arent any *near* the Old Monk, but there are plenty of great course in the greater Dallas/Ft Worth area: Lester Lorch Park, Harry Myers Park, Veterans, ZBoaz, Audubon, Bicentannial Park...
Leave the Park and get back on 9 south, bear left onto Rehobith ave, DFH is on the right hand side - it should take 20 min but who knows with beach traffic.
The course is like no other I've played. No such thing as fairways here. It's all sand dunes and pine scrubs. You can only see two or three of the baskets from the tees due to elevation and vegetation. the wind off the ocean comes into play but it's not overpowering. play it, you'll ether love it or hate it.
The brew pub is Dogfish Head Brewings and Eats - I shouldn't need to say any more (and yes their food is almost as good as their beers)

North Water Tower Park Bahi Hut
Back to U.S. 41 and then south... less than 1/2 mile on R, where you'll find the Golden Host Hotel, and the famous Bahi Hut Lounge, where you can get the best Mai-Tai anywhere - and they'll only let you have two of them!
If you take U.S. 41 north into downtown Bradenton, you can find the Lost Kangaroo Pub on Main Street. This place serves free peanuts in baskets, and you can throw the shells on the floor. Lots of taps, but when I go in there I get a draft ESB, buddy. Yummy!

Grand Rapids, MI
about 1.5 miles from course, South on Monroe Ave., left on Leonard St., left on Plainfield Ave. and it comes up on your left about a half block. Riverside is decent course that is rapped around a river lagoon. Pretty flat, with lots straight shots, with some old trees in play. Water hazards on several holes on the back nine. Course is of the north-side of downtown GR. Graden's Crossing is an AWESOME pub! Fantastic and unique drink and food menus.
