top course for a day trip

Postby SlingShot » Wed Oct 27, 2010 3:36 pm

If you could play anywhere within a days drive, where whould you go? Gas $ not a factor. Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee would all be possible. What would be your #1 pick for a course?

IDGC-why play one championship course when you could play three?

Yeah flyboy is the deal but I'm looking for a new tract. Likely alabama or south carolina. The sinks is the only out of state course I've played. I hear george ward is nice.

Choices man...

IDGC awesome and great facilities
Columbia SC- Crooked Creek in Chapin (25ish away) and Earlewood plus a killer bar scene might make you spend the night.
Greenville- Foothills and Timmons is a good day, Va-du mar in Spartanburg is good too
Columbus GA- first course down there
Huntsville- Some killer courses there (have not played)

Columbus (Flat Rock) is badass, and from your area, its not too bad a drive. George Ward is pretty sweet too, course is in good shape. I have played severeal rounds there in the past 6 months. Personally, i would drive to Columbus. :mrgreen:

And just a tad outside Dollar's top 3 - you can come play the new Central Red layout for some real excitement. Come experience the quaintness of the country with all the amenities and culture of the big city that Forsyth County has to offer. We now offer one of the finest mixes of 27 holes that you can find in one place. Afterwards, you can visit one of our many historical sites, eat in one of our lavish 3-star restaraunts, or belly up to the bar at one of our many watering holes. How can one place offer so much!?!?

Please feel free to wait for our fundraiser tournament on the 21st to make the trek and let the anticipation and excitement build!!! Sign up today to ensure that you will save your spot for this most anticiapted event!!!

Skip the IDGC. I would go to Huntsville. UAH is the ish and Redstone Arsenal is one of the best courses I have ever played. You will need to speak to a local to gain access to the Army base to play the Arsenal. There are 2 other local courses Brahan Springs and Mastin Lakes. They're both Par 3 courses. Not really the best courses, but might as well play them if you are there.

I agree with $ on Bud Hill in Memphis. A little hard to find, but it's a definite diamond in the rough!! One of the more fun courses that I've played!!

Yeah, getting hand written directions while we were in Holly Springs MS, from a guy that was from Little Rock Arkansas, made it tricky but well worth the adventure.

I second Huntsville as having great courses that are 3 hours away...Play the Arsenal, an old school disc golf course where its legal bring a keg of beer on the course...of course you will have to get security clearence, sign up weeks prior to arrivial through the Rocket City Chain gang, and don't be suprised when you have to go through a barricaded checkpoint....it's on a military base

I hear Dean did a great job on UAH. Bonus: no need for bomb searches to get on the course

For a nice day trip, go to Cloudland Canyon. Fun course and you can hike into the canyon after you're done. You could play Somerville on the way up also. It's not a good course, but one to add to the list.
Fart, it's never not funny!

“I've been playing disk golf for about three years. A lot of people have aspirations to go pro and there is plenty of people that's there only job. Myself it's a young sport, I've got to pay the bills,” said disk golfer Brian Lane.

Finally made it to Hollywood 8) and they spell your name wrong.... damn it man :?
