Thumbs up Courses you played when you were relatively new that you want to go back and play!!

I've been playing for five years now and when I first started my wife and I went on a road trip for our anniversary to philadelphia/NYC and niagara falls (from grand rapids, mi) and we played three courses during this trip: Sedgley Woods, Cranbury, and white spruce. I know that Cranbury is a "top-tier" course and that white spruce was a blast to play (and my only canada course) but what courses have you played a while back that you would love to play again? Just to see if they compare!?!?

For me it was always Walnut Creek in Charlottsville, VA. I played there once before I moved to NH, which is where I really started to play seriously. I finally got back there last year. It wasn't quite as good as I remembered, but still up there.

The other would be Blendon Woods in Ohio. I played there quite a bit when I was in the area for college. But I was still very green. I remember it being a fun, challenge. But at just 3700 feet, it'll probably have a very different feel if I ever get back to play it again.

I wasn't new when I played these courses but I was still in transitioning phases from my chucker days and was just a rec level player...

Would love to take another stab at Walnut Ridge in Des Moines, Whippin Post and Woodshed, and the Pittsburgh trio of Deer Lakes/Moraine/Knob Hill. I have a feeling I would appreciate those courses a lot more now.

Most of my old stomping ground in MN and WI from before I moved south and got a lot better at disc golf. Tower Ridge, Kaposia, BRP, Highbridge.

Golden Hills, New Quarter, and Pratt Park in VA.

Wickham Park in CT.

And Admiral Farragut in TN, the first course I ever played, years before I owned anything other than a Whamo Frisbee.

Have to go back to Charlotte. During my first year, I played the two in Elon Park (Eager & Angry Beaver), Squirrel Lake and The Scrapyard. Love to see those (and the rest of the town) again!

The 1st courses with baskets that I played were West Park, Shorewood and New Lenox starting in 1979. But, I have played those courses extensively over the years. I guess if I had to pick a course to revist now it would prob be Huson Mills or Rolling Hills. I haven't played either of them since 1999.

I usually prefer to play new courses when I travel now. Dellwood (Canyons) I'm coming for you!

Dellwood has some fun shots. Be prepared for a lot of walking that will make you question the layout. I believe they had some restrictions they had to work with.
