The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
Once I discovered that there was a thriving disc golf community north of me, with numerous disc golf courses, I set out to visit as many of them as possible. The closest one is right across the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, on the tip of the Pinellas peninsula, and it's named after a tribe of Native Americans that used to inhabit the region centuries ago: Tocabaga.
Tocabaga is a fairly big, spread-out park with practically no water hazards to deal with, even though there is water all around. It's another great disc golf course for the area, and its proximity means I'll be up there as often as possible.
My favorite holes: #2, with a wide open drive that ends up taking you across a patch of palmetto, with the basket mostly hidden from the tee; #4, an easy left dogleg perfect for us RHBHers; #5 is a downhill run through mucho tree sentinels, but I've been lucky on this hole; #8 is a fairly wide-open right dogleg, but you have to get around a big clump of shule between you and the basket (and last time I played there was an alternate placement for the basket, and with this comes TWO shule/tree clumps to contend with); #10 is a long fairway drive with a few large pines in the way; #13 is just a heave-ho lefter; and #15 is a ways straight out in front with a mando. #14 also has a mando.
I joined a doubles match one Saturday afternoon I was there, and got to run with some super players. The course is big and bold, and ought to be on everyone's list.
