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?
64 wow if that thats not to many than i dont what to think, and its not the states official past time , how many ball golf courses are there in this 50 mile radius. Maybe spread some of that love the rest of the world. Seems the course proliferaion should stop in brighton mich. and concentrate on making the game bigger not more golf courses in an area that has to many yes 64 in 50 miles is to many. (the state gives you that much land ? HMMM)
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!
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.
