Man, If I could only take the California weather up to British Columbia! I've NEVER had a bad time up there. However they did threaten to kidnap me, because every time I go. It's sunny and in the 70's lol!!!
I've been on a walk about for the past couple years, but I haven't found a place with the Northern Cal. vibe. If only they were able to get the state of Jefferson approved. I would leave CA in a heart beat!
I have been to San Diego. It seemed like a nice place but I don't recall a lot of choices for disc golf courses. The discgolfscene.com website has service that tells you how many courses are near a given location.
So I punched in my address in Brighton, Michigan and set the parameters at courses within 50 miles. The site claimed there were 64 courses. It didn't include private courses and I know of a bunch more in this area.
Then I punched in San Diego, CA with a 50 mile parameter. Wanna guess how many choices it claims are available?
The Greater Cincinnati/N Kentucky area should be in the running. We have 30+ courses in this area, Idlewild being one of them, then you're 45 minutes from Dayton Ohio that has a few nice courses. So a 50 mile radius makes the course count over 50.... Living expenses are low here compared to Cali and most other parts of the country.
If I could live anywhere, I would spend my summers in Minnesota, Iowa or Wisconsin on a lake or river and live the rest of the year in Southern California. The people in the Midwest are friendly & caring and the quality & quantity of disc golf courses is unmatched.
Since I can't do that, I will live in Southern California where I can disc golf year round in shorts and sneakers. So Cal has the weather - along with the beaches and mountains. Yes, there are way too many people (including idiots and psychos) and not enough disc golf courses. But then again, I never-ever have to wear snow boots or shovel tee pads. I am still amazed to see flowers in full bloom in December and think it is awesome that Strawberry season begins in January not June.
