Yeah, not within 30min but much closer than Athens is! If I was at Clemson, I'd try and play Stoney Hill every other month

Mt Vernon, TX (pop 2,700) will likely fit this soon. The two Trey Texas Ranch courses are both John Houck designed and about 5 minutes from town. Selah Ranch is 10 minutes north.

The Catawba Valley area of NC is a pretty good location for a smaller pop, three counties have good full sized courses in Morganton, Hickory (largest of the 3 at around 40,000 people), and Sawmills that are right on the Catawba River and a blast to play. Plus where we are, we are right in the middle of the western part of the state, so we have easy and equal distances between Asheville, Charlotte, and several private and resort courses that run like a chain through the mountains so road tripping has many options as well from here.

Oh duh, yeah that one's obvious. And Mt Vernon became non-dry in the last year. There's no Joe's Place or Dublin Underground, but at least you can buy a Shiner now without driving half an hour.

But if you've never lived in, or been to, remote Texas before, you would want to visit before deciding to move there. It's a decidedly, uhhhhhhh...different, way of life.

I'm pretty happy with the five 18-hole courses near me. My town is ~35,000 population.

All these are within a ~30min drive:
Memorial Park, Frankenmuth, MI (4.03)
Wickes Woods, Saginaw, MI (3.20) - Underrated since most reviews from 9-hole design
Tittabawassee Trails, Freeland, MI (3.61) - Soon to be 24 holes
Chippewa banks, Midland, MI (3.24)
The Jungle, Sanford, MI (3.50)

~1 Hour away:
Wildwood (4.10) and Deerfield Park (4.17) - same park
Grayling Rotary (4.08) and Pine Knoll (3.33) - same park

Goldenrod and Holly Woods aren't far either.

1-90 SE Minnesota

Not so much a town but several towns with good golf on what I call the "I-90" corridor in SE MN between Fairmont and Winona.

*Fairmont= 2 awesome 18 hole courses in same park.
*Albert Lea= 3 18 hole courses inc. the gold level "Oak Island"
*Austin= 1 12 and 1 awesome 27 (soon to be 1 good 18 and 1 really awesome 21!)
*Stewartville= Awesome 18 hole
*St. Charles= pretty good 18 hole from what I hear (have not played yet)
*Winona= 2 18 hole courses (have not played them yet either)

All within about a 3 to 4 hour stretch of freeway that never has traffic jams!

Note that going west from Fairmont you have the new gold course at Okoboji that's even a bit closer than Oak Island gold in Albert Lea and the Adrian 18 is closer than Austin.

Even better then! I have never been west of Fairmont for disc golf. Was just thinking in terms of towns that I-90 goes through or is real close to though. If we start including north Iowa and a few other towns that are semi close then we are really talkin about some good golf!
