How do i post a new thread here?

I want to find someone willing to play the Redwood Curtain tomorrow am early as no one seems willing to post a map for us tourist players that might be passing through. Why wouldnt DGCR put up jpgs of the course maps or text directions, especially for one that says its impossible for first timers. PDGA has one but you have to join to login. I join the local clubs.

Anyway, any hints would be good.

After heavy debate I came up with this list. I personally love very challenging/long and well thought out courses........beauty is a plus, but I love coming back humbled and hungry for another round at any of these courses.

1. Milo McIver (beaver state fling east and west 18's).....very well thought out and tweaked over the years and will always keep you thinking and on your toes.

2. Jackson Memorial IDGC.......possibly the best overall design I have ever played.

3. Idlewild

4. Deer Lakes Park

5. Leviathon (blacks)

6. Flyboy aviation.....I'm not sure why some people knock the design here, things are always changing and a lot of the holes out there rival any of the top courses out there. Hole 3 is arguably the best hole in disc golf I've ever played.

6. Renny Gold......just an overall brutal beat down.

7. Hornets Nest (charlottes web overlay)

8. Angry Beaver (I know its not finished, but I recently saw some of the markings for some new/longer tees) I believe its being called the angrier beaver lately by the locals

9. Bear at Highbridge Hills......it wasn't mowed/manicured when I played, but if it ever is, it would be the best course in that complex.

10. Centralia IL........long and challenging, but very well thought out.

I think the layout at Flyboy is great but if you took the best 18 it would be rock solid phenomenal but as a 27 hole course you get some less than spectacular holes thrown in.

... and damnit my top ten changed again and my last post was two months ago.

honorable mentions..........(very hard to rank these in top ten, but these were close)

no particular order......
West Lake Park, Blue Gill, Blue Ribbon Pines (majestic layout), blueberry hill, granite ridge, highbridge gold, (all of which were manicured and mowed much better than bear), camden 2 (long postions), rolling ridge.........I could go on a bit more, but I will stop.

My top ten changes a lot, my wife and I have been to a lot of places in the country to play and we have played a lot of great courses. It seems that courses from recent trips tend to make their way higher up the list than those from past trips.

Sorry if this is a little off-topic but why is Flyboy extinct now?

More traffic than could be accommodated for. You 100% need a guide/permission there; as the course winds it's way round private airplane landing and take off areas.

I'll post my list as of now and see how it compared with my first time around:

1. Leviathan
2. Idlewild
3. Goliath
4. France Park (not necessarily objectively great...just great for my likes/dislikes and personal skill level)
5. Ramcat Ridge

Edit: Okay...apparently this is NOT the thread I was thinking it was...

Thanks Tallpaul I had just got into the thread that dealt with this. I hope I get the chance to play this someday.
