Just one lake, but a couple of water carries, the exact number depending on which layout you play. The big one I hit the water frequently, but usually eventually get the disc back. It's the water...

Understable drivers, because of a certain finicky water-carry hole that begs for a turnover shot.....but steals any shot that turns over too much. And because it takes a while to break in or master...

I don't think the rulebook is all that simple, especially for a beginner. It seems 80% of it covers things that rarely happen---but, of course, have to be covered in a rulebook for when they do. A...

Then you might look at Timmons. Especially since you like Earlewood. It's a pretty and very fun, short course, in somewhat the same style. Not sure of the distance from I-85, but very easy to get...

I was, of course, joking, a bit brazenly after having traveled to D.C. last year and not checking out Hawk Hollow.

Ah, I forgot about Central. Amazing, since I'm due to play it, for the first time, at the tournament in 10 days. It comes highly recommended by people I trust.

Tyger River is probably your best bet in S.C. It's a brand-new course with two very distinct halves---the front 9 is short, technical, semi-wooded; the back 9 is twice as long, mostly open, but with...

I was thinking of course conditions as being different from weather conditions. Flood, mud, overgrown, or---in one bitter memory---overmosquitoed.

But as weather goes, after many years of...

The truth isn't as cut-and-dried as either of these. Certainly there have been disasters by local designers. There have also been some fine jobs done by non-professionals, and even first-timers.

Stoney Hill is so wet right now, there is water standing on hillsides. It's as if the Everglades had 60' hills. The pond shore is way higher than full, the creeks twice their normal width and...

LOL. I could almost say the same thing. There's a difference between 250' and 260' to me. If the question has been 180', probably no difference between 180' and 190'.

It has to be a regional/local thing. I don't play doubles much anymore, but played a lot from about 1997-2010 or so, mostly on a shorter, ace-friendly course.

My guess is that there won't be. Not a fatality to a non-disc-golfer. It is, at the least, extremely improbable that any injury will be that severe.

Though I'm not sure it matters. There have...
