1.) Flyboy - Not only did Kelly put in an amazing course, but he offers an amazing disc golf experience at Flyboy. I stayed here a couple days last year and he was so damn hospitable. I got to play the course 3 times and I have t say the shot variety is unmatched. Short par 3s, par 4s, par 5s with water.. It's all here. Hard not to list it at #1.

2.) Idlewild - This course made me feel so small. It's just a huge, huge piece of land with giant holes and an amazing layout.

3.) Golden Gate Park - Beautiful park. I met some awesome people while I was out there, even! Really the course doesn't stand out as one of the best, but it's the kind of park where you could stay all day and just relax and soak it up.

4.) Waterworks - This course is something else. Talk about a challenge. The elevation changes left this Florida boy somewhat confused but it also gave me some really good lessons. I do remember the wild onions growing on one hole that I was chewing on while playing my round.

5.) Edward Medard Park - I've gotta list this one because it's the best course I've played in Florida thus far. Truly a pro-level course. Designed by JohnE McCray and his wisdom shows through in every aspect of the course. There's camping on site, too!

Honorable mention - Malabar Park, Palm Bay FL - My disc golf game essentially "grew up" on this course. I was there right after it was put in, for the rough part, and as the community grew and the park was more frequented it became better and better. The sheer amount of WORK that's been done out here is something amazing. We have seating on every hole, multiple spots to seek shelter when it rains, crazy tiki heads in the trees, a "spin-o-mando", a self-proclaimed "longest tee pad in the world", and some amazing shot variety. Hole 12 is a personal favorite as there are literally 5-6 lines to take to the basket, but you have to nail these lines.
