I've only ever played disc golf in Raleigh and in Charlotte, but I understand why people may think we're spoiled. I can hit at least 15 courses without driving more than 30 minutes in Charlotte.

As for the fire ants, you see them some but it's not a big issue. Now poison ivy though

That is one thing that designers can do little about ... eastern NC is board flat. A "downhill hole" is one that drops maybe 1 or 2 feet per hundred.

As Brother Dave mentioned, Castle Hayne is a gem. New Bern's Glenburnie Park is another eastern NC classic that - for us flatlanders - comes with elevation (up to 15 feet!), fast greens, and is along the banks of the Neuse River estuary.

I go down to Emerald Isle once every summer with my wife's family. I picked Barnet over Glenburnie this year because I was bringing along a couple of family members who had never played before and the short tees at Barnet seemed more appropriate. Next year I plan to swing through New Bern and play Glenburnie.

Hoover Damn (aka Brent Hambrick) is generally considered the best course around Columbus and is obviously the host of the Brent Hambrick Memorial tourney. Simsbury in Pickerington is my personal favorite. Lobdell, Alum Creek, and Delaware are all good courses too.

Central Ohio, like eastern NC, is also mostly bereft of good elevation. Hoover and Simsbury are the only two courses around town that manage to traverse some hilly terrain.

Nobody blamed him and they aren't fire ants.
