In Memory: The Best Extinct Courses
 
Now that 5 of the best 10 courses I've ever played (out of 110 total) are extinct, I thought we should start a thread.

Please post memories, tributes, photos, videos.

Please, no Temp Courses. This is for Permanent Courses that are gone.

My 5:
Circle R - Rolling Meadow (http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=664)
Circle R2 - Strawbale Field
Circle R - Circ Hill (http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=612)
Circle R2 - Colorado River
Circle R2 - Meandering Greenbelt

I know others will add Bracket's Bluff. And Flyboy Aviation (even though I don't think it's really extinct). And maybe that disc golf on a ball golf course in SoCal where Rhett used to play.

If we grieve together, perhaps their memories will never fade.

I first played disc golf at Circle R, and later worked there for a couple years (my office looked out onto Rolling Meadows #1). I'll look through some old photos... might have fond memories to share :)

Yeah, very sad news regarding brackett's as that is the best extinct course I have played. You're right, flyboy is not extinct.

The original Kensington course. I only got to play it once, but it was a great course.

Never played it myself but I hear San Sabba was something special. (circle R II)

The Eternal Flame at Chestnut Ridge Park in western NY. After over a year of planning and work this tough, technical, long and beautiful course was shut down for silly political reasons. The course was only open for about 2 months and I only got to play it once. It could have easily entered the top 10 courses in the country.

I hate politicians and I especially hate the fat cats that actually pull the strings.

We played there every March from the time it opened (we got a tour of the Hill the first year -- when only the Meadow existed), except for a couple years that we only went to San Saba. Probably ran into you as we rummaged through the warehouse.

I remember when I first received the e-mail from Houck regarding the purchase of the Wimberley property. The subject line was "Ubelievable!". Yep, he missed an "n" in there. Wish I could find that e-mail, but that was 3 e-mail systems and 4 computers ago.

Gran Canyon, Brooksville, FL
Still Waters Farm, Govan, SC

Are two of my Top-5 all-time. Until recently I considered the Canyon the best course I'd ever played.

Stonhenge, Nashville, TN is pretty high on my list, as well

Met a guy Sunday who had played Laurel Springs, which I just missed playing and is now about 15 years extinct.

I never played it but I think those that played it miss Laurel Springs tree farm course in NC or SC.
