Ok guys, I've got an internship in Colorado this Spring on an organic farm (super psyched for this). I'm living in Florida and I need to have my car there so part of the whole experience is going to be a 2200 mile road trip from here to there in mid-March/early April.

Since it's winter and I want to avoid icy and snowy roads as much as possible, I'll be hugging the southern coast of the US and then going straight up to CO. Here's what my route is going to look like (somewhat):http://mapq.st/A8OtA0 

Now, which are the must see, do not pass go courses along this route? I don't mind slight detours as long as I'm not going too far out of the way. 

Let's see some Southern Hospitality!

Oh yeah, any level of difficulty is nice but I do appreciate a challenge. I am looking for tight fairways, shaped shots, requirement to have multiple shots in the bag, and holes long enough or with enough water to provide a challenge for an advanced player.

If nothing else, you are going to be very close to some great mountain golf when you get here! Sundance and Beaver Meadows are both just up the hill from Owl Canyon. And that is a good thing!

Wouldn't mind checking out the organic farm.

What's the name of it?

Well, when you get to Colorado you should take Highway 50 west to Pueblo. There is a course there. Then head up I-25 to Colorado Springs where you could play three or four different courses.  Then if you head up I-25 to Denver there are a whole bunch more courses including Jellystone which I have not played yet. Check this out...

If you go through eastern Colorado there is a whole bunch of nothing and you will miss quite a few good courses. Also if you came through Colorado Springs you could probably post something up on our PPFDC forum and get in touch with some of the locals.

I have played every course on here except Baker in Mobile, They are all very fun to play. Also depending on what weekend you are going you may find a tournament worth playing as there are many along I-10 here is link to the local tournament series http://www.sndg.org/tourn.php


The farm I'll be interning on is called Grant Family Farms. It's the largest organic farm in the US outside of California.

Cool,

grew up on the family dairy farm in North Pocono, Pennsylvania in the summers.

Maybe you can convince them to put up a temp disc golf course, and have disc golfers donate for REAL food!

Haha I had the option to intern on a farm that had a 9 hole in the ground already but this farm actually pays instead of just room and board, plus it's very well established so they'll have a lot to teach me about organic farming.

And the melon patch looks like hole 9. Get to know some of the locals here in Colorado Springs and you can get to play this course...

It is a private course that is open to locals who call (PPFDC members) ahead. A nice difficult course. 

austin has a ton of great courses..

You should definately make a stop in Mobile. That is a great disc golf destination. Chickasabogue, Langan Municipal, and University of South Alabama are my favs there.
