This part is true. I'd have guessed it was 3 times as many. South Carolina just started wakening from its disc golf slumber in the last decade or so, really odd since we're right between the hotbeds of Augusta and Charlotte.

If you get stuck on the east side of town you can head to Zebulon. Plus there is a fair amount of private courses within a reasonable drive. The toughest decision for you will be whether you pretend to be a NC St, Duke or UNC fan. Good luck.
Thanks for the info! I'm actually kind of already a Heels fan so I think I'll continue to pretend to be a fan of them lol

Sorry, gmoney, if you think this is thread drift....but if you're really considering moving to Raleigh, you'll need to know this stuff.
Yes indeed. Vital info! haha

You'll fit in perfectly with the other heels fans. You pretend to be a fan, you call yourself Gmoney already, and you probably can't find Chapel Hill on a map without the GPS in the beamer your dad bought you. really no offense OP it's just kinda hostile down here with ACC basketball.

Man, some of you are rough on us rednecks. As for your question about disc golf in my home state, well we have a few very nice players who call it home. Additionally, we have a number of public and private courses to choose from. Two new course have been opened in the last few weeks bringing the total to over 20 courses within 30 minutes of my house. The two new courses are not up on DGCR yet. One opened this week in Zebulon and the other is in Apex.

Funny thing is that companies such as SAS and Cisco among others have put in courses for employees and there guest. So, while many people talk about building interest we are getting corporate support and investment in the sport. Anyhow, it's ok if we are overlooked by the masses, that leaves plenty of space for those of us(rednecks) who call this place home.
