Texas States 2013
 
I just saw that they announced on Facebook that Texas States will be moving to Austin for 2013 Texas States. I really like the way it has been run the last couple of times I have attended just always hated playing Tom Bass. Let's see what Austin can present in the way of courses. Any guesses on the new locations? My guess would be Dripping Springs because we could all stay in one Complex.

I think this is good news. Austin offers better courses and a wider range of difficulty. I always heard that a change of city was not wanted b/c Houston Flying Disc Society owned the rights to the name. Even though I'm from Houston, that's aload of Bull****.

And yes, tom bass blows a BIG one. I've also heard/read that the other disc sports have not been taken care of. Either that should change and be organized or they should just gut everything but golf.

BigE, what did you think of 2011 down at Jack Brooks?

Good lord I hope not, there are SOOOO many better courses here. Circle C, Roy G, Austin Ridge, Met Center just to name a few. Twin Parks ain't bad, the clubhouse is killer. They already get a ton of tourneys there, though.

I missed that year I have been 2009 and 2012 and hoped when I signed up this year that it would be at Jack Brooks because I really like the videos I saw of that place for 2011. I really think that the courses are boring for a State event. I do understand that they want the venue to be at one complex. It really makes for a better experience for the whole group as opposed top having 3 seperate courses all over the city.

What other complexs in the Austin metro have 2/3 or more courses?

I found this on the local board. Apparently, round rock/North Austin DG group is fostering the move. Sounds like three badass courses and 10K added!

In spite of Tom Bass, the year I played TX States it was a top notch event. It will be a tough act to follow. If Vinnie Miller is involved I have no doubt that they will rise to the occation having witnessed the awsomeness that is the TX women's championship. I've not played Met Center but Roy G and Manor are about as good as it get for tournament golf. This should be EPIC.
