Pittsboro, North Carolina Buckhorn New Hill Carolina Brewery (New Pittsboro Location)
about 15-20 minutes from the course
Buckhorn is one of the top courses in NC (IMO) Very challeging with water. A must play when you are in the area.
Carolina Brewery has always had top of the line beers, but the Santas Secret is excellent this year.
You can get it by the pint at the restaurant or get a growler (4 1/2 pints) to take home for $12.
Brakewell Steel and Wolf woods @ Warwick Town Park
Yesterday's Restaurant and Pub
about 5 or 6 miles from the course in the village of Warwick - Make a left leaving the course, left at the stop sign, drive a few miles, right past the hospital at the "T", less than a mile on your right.
Warwick is my home course and still one of the nicest course I've played. with 2 full 18 hole course, short and long tees and baskets on the main course and short and tees on wolf woods there is conceivably 108 different holes to play. Steel is well manicured with a great mix of open and wooded holes with good elevation change and with 4 different layouts to each hole it's got something for every level of player. Wolfe Woods is a bit more "rustic" and tends to get too overgrown in the summer, however come spring and fall it is nice to get back to the roots (and trip over a few roots).
Yesterday's offers a nice pub feel with an appropriate selection of English style ales. If you find yourself their I recommend you try the barbecued duck.
Falls Tap Room
Leave course, turn left, drive 20 seconds, Pub on right (Quail Corners Shopping Center)
Course discription - Well wooded with a little OB (pond) and a few field holes. Hard to shoot par from Pro Tees
Pub discription - Over 100 imports on tap. Half of them are good, a few are fantastic
Seneca Creek Park
less than 2 miles from the entrance of the park to the Alehouse. Both are on the same road.
On a scale of 1-10 10 being the best....Food = 8, Beer = 10. Hard to beat a pub with all kinds of Dogfish Head Beer on tap.
The course is an oldie but a goodie. It used to be a predominantly roller friendly course but the rescent re-design and has made the course 27 holes and more of an airshot style course that brings the disc catching Cedar trees more into play.
Peak One Disc Golf
from the brewery go south on Hwy 9 only a mile or two, look for Frisco Nordic Center on the east side of the highway
while there is only one water hazard along the resevoir, the scenery is beautiful as the course is above 9000 feet, the fairways are kinda tight and good mix of holes
the brewery has become a staple now, it's a must stop whenever I'm in central Colorado, and I usually ship a case of 32oz's home with a mix of their seven different brews on tap, although I strongly recommend the Switchback Amber
Unknown Name Dive of a Place, made of Concrete Blocks, I don't think there is a window in the joint, sell super cold .75 glasses of PBR, greasy bar food and a decent selection of discs.
Bar is across street from Brandley Univ Women's Softball Field.
Course is one of the originals in the Peoria Area. Was reworked a few yrs back. On most Sat. summer mornings you can count on a wait to get started on the first hole. Very popular place. Trees punish lack of control & reward the low throwing strong arm. I spent many hours throwing multiple discs/hole while allowing my 2 boxer dogs to run free. dogs were friendly and so were the patrons of Bradley.
The course is in northern Norwalk and the pub is on Washington St in South Norwalk. Washington St is one of those gentrified blocks you often see in older towns. There are many other clubs , bars and restaurants on this block between S Main St and Water St. including the Ginger Man. It's about 8 miles from course to pub but there is a small expressway that covers most of the journey. (route 7 , known as "the connector" between the merrit prkwy and I 95)
The course has just been updated (fall '07) with new rubber tee mats and has become quite challenging, with one par 4 (13)
Most holes are between 260 - 300 ft with a few longer ones including 18 which is about 450.
It has several holes that play across open lawns but most of the course is in the woods with some nice elevation changes.
The pub is about a year or two old now and offers fabulous tap beers from around the world and features @30 taps. (maybe more)
Shelly Sharp @ Vista del Camino, home of the memorial.
1 mile west of Vista del Camino park on Mcdowell.
Course description: lots of water!

Take a left out of the park. Take the next left, Dexter-Pinckney Rd. Follow for about 10 miles until you get to Ann Arbor. Take a right on Huron. After 1 block, take a left on Washington. ABC is 100 feet down on the right.
Hudson Mills is sweet. 2 24 hole courses with 6 different layouts. Monster is mostly tight and wooded, more challenging. Original is more open and fun.
ABC makes great unfiltered ales. Try the Sacred Cow IPA (hand cranked) or the Red Snapper SB, or whatever stout they have. Lots of options and rotating taps. Sampler platters available. Good burgers, get the garlic fries. 3 dartboards and shuffleboard. Beware of hippies.
Check out Grizzly Peak if you have time by walking left out of ABC, 1 block down on the right.
