Selah Ranch Lakeside vrs Flyboy vrs Flip City

Anyone out there played all 3 of em?? If so I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on which is better.

As for me, played Flip and loved it, best course I ever played. Tried to play Flyboy when I was down south but couldn't get a reservation, Photos look amazing. Selah Ranch is the odd one to me. I look at the photos and outside of the Island shot I just see what looks like the same few types of holes over and over. Sure there is a lot of water hazards but the ones that aren't all look flat and mildly wooded to me.

I am Biased of course, I enjoy nature based courses the most. When you have fantastic land and you use it to perfection and let it dictate a fantastic course with a ton of variety. Thats why I don't quite get the Selah Ranch. I admit I never played it and could very easily be wrong but the pictures aren't impressing me. Sometimes I suspect it's rating has been artificially inflated

Again not dissing it, I could easily be wrong. Thats why I'm looking for the word of a man lucky enough to have stepped foot on all 3

I am hoping to play the Selah courses later this year. I have played Flip and Flyboy. I rated both as 5s, because I truly think they are both great courses. That being said, I think Flyboy is considerably more challenging than Flip. Flip is a very fun course, but there is much more variety and risk/reward at Flyboy. I'm excited about getting out to the Selah courses, as well. At one time, I had played 7 of the top 10...but with the Selah courses making waves, I'm down to 5 of 10.

I have only played Flip, but agree. Absolute gem of a course, and cannot say enough great things about the job Bill does, to make this one of the most unique disc golfing experience around, but the difficulty factor is pretty low. Granted, I am from a tree, woods background, given the courses in this area, but I have always scored pretty will at Flip. I certainly hope to play the others someday.

The difficulty factor at flip is pretty low? Either you're an amazing discer or I'm unbelievably bad. I know the latter is somewhat true...

There is no doubt that several of the reviews for Selah are from shills.

More than likely someone created several accounts just to review Selah and give it 5 stars. Could it possibly be the designer who brags about designing the world's top rated course? You decide.

Only played Flyboy ... multiple times

I'd say FBA is the most exclusive.

Flip isn't even a '5' - let alone one of the top 10 best courses… don't get me wrong it is a very nice course but you end up throwing the same turnover putter shot about 10 times off the tee so variety really isn't a strong suit there anyway.

To say flip isn't challenging is forgivable....to say it isn't a '5' is heresy.
