Thanks for any input
Dexter is my home course, always worth a stop. If you are in the area for the day, also worth taking a 20 minute drive to North Regional in Cottage Grove, a nice complement to Dexter. However, as suggested already, you have to stop at Whistlers Bend before continuing North to Dexter, no question.

Continuing North, stop at Adair for sure, Bryant Park in Albany if open (seasonally closed for water) before heading to Portland.

Milo and Pier are the mainstays on most Portland lists, along with the Hornings trifecta. If in the Hornings area for a while also consider Stubb Stewart.

But, any Portland disc golf list has to now include Blue Lake Regional Park. IMO, right after Milo, before Pier and Horning's. It's different for Oregon as many courses here are in the forest (Milo, Horning's, Stubb, Dexter, etc) and Blue Lake is more of the "city" park experience but on a huge scale. Long and long, accuracy essential with mowed fairways, most long grass is OB. Centerpiece for 2014 Pro Worlds, don't miss it. $5 to park, well worth it.
