Atlanta Area DG

I'll be in the metro area this week for Christmas and was gonna play some DG while I was there.

Any course suggestions? I was gonna hit Flyboy, but I hear it's closed until after New Years. I was thinking of playing White Oak, Southern Poly, and Chamblee Church DGC.

Anybody have any suggestions or want to meet up for a round? BillnChristy?

Make the trip over to the International Disc Golf Center in Appling GA. It is about 90 minutes but it has three great courses, the Disc Golf Hall of Fame, The HQ for the PDGA, and some of the best people to golf with.

I live near Sequoyah and would be willing to meet for a round. I wouldn't recommend Chamblee or Southern Poly because they are smaller courses on land not dedicated to golf. Try East Roswell, Redan, and others first.

east roswell is highly spoken of but i haven't actually played it...

wills has recently been almost completely redone and i have heard good things about that as well

redan is an excellent shorter course and was my favorite when my gf lived in atl- put valuables in the trunk in the lot however...

lenora is a waste of time, land, and baskets.

Lenora is a great place to practice, try new shots, and learn how to play in the wind.

East Roswell Park is great fun and way more open now that its winter.

Alexander park is fun but on the easier side

White oak is wide open with lots of up and down...not my cup of tea but ok.

Wills was just redone and is supposed to be a fun tract.

Redan is a good old school course.

Might be able to play Alex early wed. afternoon or ERP thursday.

I'm not sure how much free time you have,but if you were to come further south for some reason,Flat Rock Park DGC is in Columbus,which is where i live,but its about an hour and a half drive,just trying to give suggestions,its a nice course though.

Whatever man, I am not telling him to go play it.

There are far worse designed courses than lenora though.

Maybe not anymore.

Victor Lord?
Hurricane Shoals?

I know, not atl, but nor is lenora.

I do have a soft spot for it because it taught Christy how to throw in the wind and dominate round 3-4 at USWDGC.
