Ashleigh and I went down and played in different pools last year, it was no problem at all for her to get rides one day and for me to get rides another day, lots of people who are friendly and willing to help you out and the whole town is full of disc golfers during that event.

Okay, so I lied. I know someone who works in Bowling Green, OHIO, not KENTUCKY. However, we'll just have to see if I can't get out of these durned "required" school activities. I think I might have fun playing.

To all BG Am players....there is a sanctioned C Tier in Bowling Green Sunday Feb 24 at the best course in our area. Come in Saturday and practice your BG Am courses, then enjoy a day at Holler in the Hills....currently rated 12th best course in the country on this site!!

Only been there once so far...played four courses,

...and am really looking forward to coming to BG Ams again, but I assume you personally enjoy White? I have courses I like (and have 'favorited'), but don't claim they're the 'best' in my area, unless a lot of folks concur.
Last year, most of the folks I played with didn't think White was the best. It's got its own unique challenges, sure, but DGCR reviews show it ranked ninth of the eleven courses down there (out to Holler at 4.62) within 15 miles of BG. The list:
Holler 4.62
Kereiakes 3.92
Lovers 3.68
BGTC 3.54
Hobson 3.40
Griffin 3.10
Chalybeate 2.91
Phil Moore 2.75
White 2.63
WKU 1.57
Natcher 1.25

This isn't intended to start an argument in any way. I love DG courses (even the lowliest of the low is a chance to hear the sweet sound of a disc hitting chains!), but would be interested to know what you really like about White.

...and I hope the tourney goes well on 2/24 (we have our Ice Bowl Krazy Series finale that day, too)!

Ephram White

The distances of the holes....the gravel OB's.....slopes, and elevation. Proper distances for pro level. Really separates the ams from the pros....Well maintained, great tee pads. Smart design....sand traps....90 degree hole...The hardwood trees are just starting to come into play.....give it 10 more years, and the rating will be up there with holler....imho Have fun at BG Ams....I might try to play this year if the rating things works out

I rate BG courses like this (including Holler/Chalybeate/Franklin)
1. Holler
2. White
3. Yakis
4. Lovers
5. Phil Moore
6. Hobson
7. Tech
8. Franklin
9. Water Park
10. Chalybeate
11. Basil Griffin

Thanks for the feedback! White IS unique, and requires good accurate D when all the OB's are enforced.
