Best in Florida?
There are quite a few courses in Florida that are worth playing, but there can be only 1 "MUST PLAY!!" Where must you play if you are to experience exactly what disc golf is all about in Florida?
My home course is Maximo Park, (Tocaboga). I play here or North Water Tower in Sarasota, atleast once a week. Toke-a-bonga is cool and Water Tower is close, but neither is a must play.
Of the courses that I have played in Florida, only 2 come to mind as "Must Play" courses:
1) Ocala Greenway in Ocala- I love this course for it's varied challenges and awesome beauty.
2) Cliff Stevens in Clearwater- The course that churned out the biggest name in our sport. A lil overrated, but combined with Coachman, makes an unbelievable day of disc golf.
My vote goes to Ocala Greenway, I love a challenge and that course has every challenge you can imagine, not to mention the rare course in Florida with any elevation changes to speak of.
Did I miss any? Lemme know!
Never had a chance to play Ocala. I love Tocobaga, but have to agree with Cliff Stevens. These are my top 2.
1) T2 in Orlando at Bill Frederick Park@ Turkey Lake due to the enormous challenge this course brings to seeing and then executing the shot perfectly.
2) Cliff Stevens, another course where you have to bring your A game, but as a whole it is more forgiving than T2 if you make a mistake.
Man I need to get to Ocala
Check my review of Ocala Greenway. If you like to be challenged and if you really want to see what a course can throw at you, you must play it. It is AWSOME! I think i'm going back early feb.
I have read the reviews of T2 and I'm dyin to get out there. How does the other Turkey course measure up? Are they right next to each other like Cliff and Coachman in Clearwater, or not?
I love Ocala also, it's elevation is great. I think my favorite is River City in Deberry, it is only 9 holes but I was told they are adding 9 this summer. If you haven't played it yet I highly recommend it. You can play the short and long pads for a full 18. I really want to get around to the Tampa area, I've heard nothing but good things about those courses.
Daberry huh? My girlfriend has just recently taken up disc golf and we are always looking for beginner friendly courses for her to play. The problem with that is, ME! I am, in comparrison to her, much more skilled and find them all borring! I played Limonna in Brandon with her and thought that was ok, I would play it again, but I like more of a challenge than it provides. I hit the chains on 2 holes and parked most of the others. I tried playing some of the harder course's short tees so we can both be challenged, but you know how that goes; "I don't want you to patronize me! I want to play the long tees!"
So our problem is finding a course that we can both find challenging. After reading your review, this sounds like a course we will both enjoy.
Cocopop, T1 is much easier when compared to T2. It is still a challenging course, but not at the same level as 2. When you follow the signs in the park that lead you to the courses , you can choose either course. First tees, for both are right off the parking lot. If you follow the road all the way to the cabin parking area, you passed up the parking lot I am referring to. Also, if you the a player who enjoys having a beer or 2 during or after a round, don't do it at this park. They are very strict about the no alcohol rule. I have heard some people say the park will call the cops on you, not just tell you to leave the park.
T2 needs some serious arm strength, I didn't even bother playing the pro tees. Maybe my 2-3rd time out i'll try. I really like the T1, funny though most people like 2 better.
I was in orlando for five years and it's were i got my DG start, i agree with all the above mentioned courses, i also like barnett park in orlando two 18s and both very nice, a little bit of elevation on a couple holes, and then f bennet or burton in cocoa off 520, only played it once but was pleasantly surprise how much i liked it and couldn't believe i had passed right by it so many times and never played it before i moved away, notice it when i came back to visit. Also tradewinds down south was a nice course. just some more feedback.
PS my photo is me getting a disc out of turkey lake on T1
gottafixit, I'm all too familiar with fishing for plastic in the T1 lake lol, I lost one in there just this past OCT during the Orlando Open. Glad you liked F. Burton, drop me a line next time your down for a visit.I'm only 15 miles from Burton. Quite a few Orlando players come out to Burton when they have the time. The main problem I have with Barnett is the neighborhood next to the park, and some of the riff raff you see in the park, so I just go to Turkey Lake.
I can't argue with either Cliff Stevens or Ocala, both are great. Red Hawk was my favorite Florida course
