Where do you consider the disc golf "Mecca."
 
I'm pretty new to the sport and have realized that there is a solid dg following from MN to MI and IN to IA. Obviously the west coast has a lot of players and the south east as well. But where would you consider the disc golf "Mecca" or "Meccas" of the world?

I am from the Southeast so I would say Charlotte because of the diversity of courses including close to Rock Hill. Also, Augusta is pretty good because of the IDGC, Patriots Park, Olmstead and Pendleton King. Both cities have also hosted the Worlds in the past 10 years and only about 3 hours from Charleston.

Depends on how you define mecca. Is it about quantity of courses, quality of courses, local league scene, local tournament scene, etc.

Central Texas and the state in general has a ton of great courses. Roughly 30 courses from beginner to championship caliber within about a 40 sq miles.

Not been around the country much, but the Carolinas are really becoming a solid place for Disc Golf. A combination of good varied geography (from mountains, forests, swamps, sandhills, golf course style fairways, lots of rivers ponds and streams, etc.), and the fact that while areas have been hit with economic downturn (my area in the Morganton/Hickory/Lenoir was recently ranked one of the 10 worst for job loss), this has spurred a creativity to utilize land for recreational development, and with Innova's East Coast factory right in the middle of both states which does good outreach with parks depts. and Disc Golf's relatively low costs compared to other sports is really spurring an explosion of courses. I don't know much about the Coastal areas, but there is great wooded golf all over the West, Hickory and Asheville being among the best tech courses around, and my home course in Morganton and the Ashe County park offer some great driving/big arm courses designed by Harold Duvall, another top 50 course Sugaree is a scenic 30 minutes from Morganton, and the players in and around the greater Charlotte area are popping out great new courses constantly with the fact Stan McDaniel's home base is there (he has also inspired many new young designers as well) and several great pros live nearby like MJ, Cam Todd, Jeremy Koling, Dave Wiggins Jr, etc.

Seems to me the definition would have to lean towards a place you want to visit at least once in your lifetime. Or, very generally, a location players from far away most want to visit. As opposed to a great disc golf location to live, which could be a very different thing.
