Since I've played RL but never Bradford, I was wondering if you could compare and contrast. From the shorts, they're about the same-ish length. But what else stands out as same/different?

Half of Bradford's holes are out in the open or mostly open. Not as much elevation as Smith, but not without some elevation changes. Except for 2 holes, the wooded fairways are quite generous.

IMO,
RL is a bit more challenging than the shorts at Bradford from the longs gets close. There aren't many big hooking fairways like you see at a course like Elon. Many throws appear to be basically straight but with trouble at different points of the disc's turn. You throw across elevation at Bradford, at RL its up and down it and a bit more. I think RL compares better to the shorts at Stumpy creek for the walk.

Bradford and RL have the SAME BENCHES made by the same people so Schleppy doesn't say it. If Eastway was a bit more wooded, I think it would compare to Bradford better. The QTY and use of cedar trees at Bradford is unique to Charlotte. Will make a great 2 meter rule course in the future.

RL is more like Stumpy, parts of Glenn Hilton, or Fox Chase with more diverse and prettier natural features.

I will soon be playing Hornets, Nevin, Renny, and RL Smith while in town.

If you were to add two more courses that would compliment these by being a bit shorter with a big fun factor, which two would you play out of:

Reedy, Kilborne, Winget, Bradford, Scrapyard, Sugaw, Eastway, Elon?

Thanks.

IMO Bradford and Kilborne. Good golf lines and birdies are earned but available. Winget and Scrapyard are shorter/tighter but feel more throw and hope in comparison. Sugaw and Eastway have both open and wooded holes but nothing too exciting. Reedy is even shorter with more birdie opportunities. Elon Angry Beaver is tough, some length and pretty darn tight (not fun but a good challenge).

I would say Bradford and Scrapyard. I don't find the Scrapyard "throw and hope" at all. But then, I learned disc golf in Charlotte and can hit a line more than half the time.
