A Christmas vacation

I had the pleasure of hosting a traveling disc golfer yesterday on his post-Christmas vacation. Down from the St. Louis, he'd played Augusta, was hitting up several courses in central SC, and on his way to Charlotte for a few days of disc golf.

All of us should give ourselves a Christmas present like that sometime.

He's here....arranged this trip on another thread (now old), and PMs. I thought I'd leave his name out and let him post about it when he gets home.....or not, as he desires.

That would be me. This is what I did.

8 days, 15 courses, 2000 miles, about 1k in expenses. Much fun.

By the way, Stoney Hill was one of the highlights of the tour. Thanks to David for showing me and my friend around. I was amazed by what a couple of guys with a piece of nice land can accomplish. Every single hole was given much thought and could be a signature hole on many courses. Plus
David was a gracious and patient host. I did leave a disc in his lake though!

I was going to start a new thread with a bit more info at some point. I will say that the Charlotte courses as a whole are the best I've seen (not counting the IDGC. Those would be real hard to beat, mostly because of the attention to every single detail)

WOW---I think that's over 60 rating-discs combined. You have our envy. Heck, I LIVE here and haven't yet played all those courses.

It was my great pleasure that it worked out, and you and Brian could come play in my yard. It's always great to have guests.

That's pretty awesome. Good stuff. I've played all of those except the non-IDGC Augusta stuff. You're reminding me I need to get back down to Augusta to play all the other stuff. How did it compare to the other courses/stops on your trip?

The Augusta courses were all good. There really was not a stinker on the whole trip. I'd guess the other Augusta courses get overlooked or at least do not get their due because of their proximity to the IDGC. Well worth it though.

Not to change the subject but, and I could be imagining things, but there seemed to be a lot of trash on many of the courses I played in the Southeast. You guys have some of the most awesome courses in the world with plastic bottles and butts everywhere. Off rant.

Thanks for your response.

As for the trash, oddly, it seems to me that the more trash cans a course has, the more litter it has, at least around here.

I regularly pick up trash when I play. It amazes me too, that players can't wait or carry out what they carry in.
