The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
I agree 100% Wisco is amazing for disc golf.
More criteria. How do you feel about steamy hot summers---or deep-frozen winters? Big cities? Employment?
Charlotte, NC has many excellent courses, a thriving club and tournament scene, and very little snow. Augusta, GA has a half-dozen excellent courses, the IDGC, and even less snow. Augusta's a much smaller city.
Another criteria question: How many courses do you really need? If there are 2 or 3 very good courses within 30 minutes, do you need any more than that? If not, your possibilities expand greatly.
What's your definition of "solid disc golf scene", anyway?
I say Florida. I know Florida is not a city.
To be specific, Central Florida.
Think about it. Florida is known for it's great weather.
Where else can you play Disc Golf twelve months out of the year.
I live in Central Florida, and there is
Daytona (Tuscawilla, Reed Canal)
Orlando (Barnett Park, Bill Frederick, UCF, Airport Lakes)
Then there's West Coast Central Florida (Sarasota Sky Pilots Courses)
Go to Disc Golf Review dgcoursereview.com
I found 15 courses within a 50 mile radius of Orlando.
Enough about how great Florida is.
Where ever you decide to go, use dgcoursereview.com or the PDGA site and actually see how many courses there are to the place you are interested in.
..or one of the many Oak trees one can climb to retrieve on any dg course here ;>}
RSR (Rock Springs Ridge)disc golf course in Apoka,Fl has elevation,recently new to the Central area of Fl
This from another person who believes that Florida is all sand and water.
Ever been to Brooksville?
The Quarry Golf Course in Brooksville is open.
I have played ball and disc golf there. The Quarry has the most elevation that I have seen in Florida.
Florida is great until we get into the dead of summer at which point you're gonna be scheduling early morning and late evening rounds only.
In the winter though, it is pretty amazing.
Actually, discgolfwise, "anywhere" might be a good answer for someone from Gillette, WY.
Though most of the answers you'll get are from people touting their hometown. So let me be different.
If you don't mind the winters, I think the Des Moines, Minneapolis, and wherever in Michigan Flip City is are hubs with active scenes and good (or great courses). Slightly warmer, Dallas-Ft. Worth often comes up high in these discussions, as does Kansas City.
The suggestion to look at dgcoursereview is an excellent one. I haven't been to the West Coast but Oregon seems to have a lot of highly-rated courses (though I get the impression they're not near a "city").
I guess the other criteria to ask is, what do you want to do when you're not playing disc golf. Surely that happens from time to time.
