Worst disc golf course conditions you have played in?

I recently played at the most waterlogged course in my career. After this experience I can easily say any course with these conditions I will not be playing again in the future. Check out the video below and tell me what are the worst conditions you have played in?

Also to top all the water this course also has the largest gap between holes I have ever seen with a 2000 feet walk between hole 5 and 6 that also requires you to jump a fence. What a design...

Stoney Hill is so wet right now, there is water standing on hillsides. It's as if the Everglades had 60' hills. The pond shore is way higher than full, the creeks twice their normal width and raging, and the radar shows all yellow and orange approaching.

I've known of courses where flooding inundated entire fairways. Short of that, yesterday's round here was a pretty good slog.

Rain=water. I usually don't hold it against a course.

Meeks' Madness in Hiawasee GA. It's normally played int he early spring and is only a few miles from the Appalachain Trail. One year it was a combination of ice and/or snow and 35 mph gusts with a steady 20 mph wind. Some holes you were glad to take a 7 and go look for a group of trees to protect you until you had to throw again.

I usually do not hold it against a course either but it had not rained in the area for weeks and it was still that wet. It would take a drought to make this course dry.

Last year, we played our March opener of the Cincinnati Course Challenge series at Harbin. We figured turnout might be low because of the weather forecast (right around freezing, rain turning to sleet, high winds). But we were surprised when 80 people showed up. Only half were crazy enough to stick it out to the bitter end.

It's not bad if you've got to deal with two of those three conditions, but all three was brutal. Worse than Ice Bowls. Worse than a wet round or two. It was downright nasty.

My regular course (Peninsula, Iowa City) the back eight is often underwater but if it's low enough to sludge through I do even when the mosquitos and gnats are swarming so bad it's hard to breathe without snorting/swallowing them. However, I played a round this winter with temps around zero on a course with no wind protection (Fay Clark, Hiawatha, Iowa) and THAT was miserable.

Tied-

First tournament at hornets nest- torrential downpour during the 3rd through 7th holes- massive mud after that,

And Bradford park during our big snowstorm this year. It was the packed snow that glossed over with ice. I was skipping tree to tree as handholds on slight hills it was so slick, used upside down sliding shots on a couple holes.

Insane wind where more than one tee shot ended up going a negative net distance, behind the tee pad. It was very frustrating.

The PAW 2000 in Ann Arbor was the pinnacle of my short-lived serious career, and I couldn't wait to play the Toboggan course under tournament conditions for that event (as an Amateur). Unfortunately, it rained buckets and buckets for most of the round. I don't do well in rain and it was by far my worst round. Haven't had the opportunity to play it since. I at least got to shoot a practice round on it before Worlds started.
