The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I'll be traveling from St Louis on I-70-West all the way to Utah, then about a week later I'll head south ,past the Grand Canyon through Arizona and ride I-40-East all the way to Nashville TN...

So what 3 or 4 courses must I play along my way to let me stretch my legs and get out of the car for a few hours without getting too far off course?

Thanks for your help.

There is a really good course in Marshall MO. It would be just off I-70 just past columbia. It is a rather new course (only 4 or 5 years old) This course rocks though! Also, because the course if fairly new and in a small town there is hardly ever a wait. You can play the course as fast or slow is you would like. The course is yours while you are on it. Elevation comes into play on every hole. Trees are a factor with all holes. Fab course. It would take you just 10 miles off of I-70 and be worth your time. Also, KC has some good courses if you don't feel like taking the 10 mile detour. Rosedale and Water Works in KC are awesome. Those would be the best options coming through Missouri. If you need any help let me know. I can help you with directions if need be.
pallisades in Grand junction is a good one. should be on pdga.com check it out
If you read thru Ben Calhoun's blog entries from his 1,000 course adventure from last year he does an excellent job of rating the courses from every region of the country. I found the "not-to-miss" courses on a road trip from SC to Dallas last year on there and he was right on. There was even a map done by Rizbee but not sure if it's up any more.

Or just message him thru his page here, I'm sure he'd help out when he gets a minute.
We did a trip from canada last year to california ......... the best thing we did was to go on to the pdga site ... look at the maps for each course we wanted to play and input the closest intersecting roads to the course as most don't have a street address ......... just put them into a plug into the cigarette lighter mapping device and let the lady and the satellite direct you to the course ........... it was amazing how good it worked out ....... we didn't miss any of the 16 courses we wanted to play ........ got us right there ......... i think some of the lats and longs listed for the courses are wrong and thats why we looked to crossroads to get us there.... also helpful to have the print out directions from the pdga. ........... have a great trip, it's really good to do.
Dang, that is a long drive. You are going to need a disc with exceptional glide. Heck, just throwing over the Grand Canyon will take one impressive huck.

Maybe you should just putt the whole way to save your arm.
There is a nice course in Russell Gulch, Colorado called the Ghost Town. It's a private course so make sure you call ahead for permission. The owner will play a round with you if you ask him, super nice guy. It's at the top of the mountain and there is a scenic road called Oh My God Road that you can take to get there. It's gravel with no guardrails. Very exciting drive or you can take the Bypass towards Winter Park. This course should also be listed in the PDGA directory. Very common to see Elk on the course. Only ten miles or so from I-70 near Idaho Springs.
Thanks for all the ideas, I'm also hoping to get to play one of those ski lodge 10000' courses since its going to be mid May when we head out.
haha. nice one mark.thats what I thought as well ;)
