South Dakota- Most Courses Played

Who has played the most courses in South Dakota?

I suspect it is mndiscg. I believe that he is on a quest to play every course in SD. DGCR lists 51 courses in SD and mndiscg has 50 on his SD played list. I wonder which one he is missing? That dude has traversed hundreds of miles all across the state playing the small town courses. Reading his SD reviews gives you a great feel for the state.

Is there anybody else out there who has played every SD course?

I just discovered that 2 of mndiscg's SD courses played are now RIP, so he actually has the potential to play more SD courses than any other person is able to. Does SD have any private courses that aren't listed on DGCR?

Also, there are still 3 SD courses that have no reviews.

The highest rated course in SD is Spearfish Canyon, with a rating of 4.44. There is only 1 TR rating (by guess who?) at 4.5. This is giving me the urge for a long road trip!

I've played the I 90 corridor it was some pretty good golf. I've also noticed that there are a lot of courses in state parks in south Dakota.

I have 60 or so reviews to write before it from my summer road trip, but I'll review Spearfish (and give it a 4.0) in the next month or so. Very cool course.

I can't imagine that kind if backlog. You must take extensive notes. If I get more than behind I find it much harder to write even with notes

I filled most of a composition notebook this summer, and I take pictures of the things I think are memorable so I don't have any trouble going back to write reviews. I wish I could keep up and do them on the trip, but our tent doesn't have wifi yet and typing reviews on phones is awful.

Couldn't you type them up on a laptop and keep them local until cut-and-pasting later into DGCR? Of course this assumes access to a laptop.

I'm going to SD in 2 weeks to play 8 of my Nature Trail Disc Golf Course courses that are in their State Parks... They found out about my scorecard / tee-sign system a few years back and there is a plan to convert all their SP courses to NTDGCs.

So I might end up being pretty high on the list for "most played in SD" after that trip.
(with 10-ish played).

Certainly not on mndiscg's level... but, pretty good for a guy living in NC.

Note: there are currently 12 NTDGCs in SD... with a few more on the way.

These are the NTDGCs I am going to go play in SD:
Lewis and Clark, Big Sioux, Lake Herman, Lake Poinsett, Oakwood Lakes, Hartford Beach, Roy Lake and Richmond Lake.

I also plan to dip into NE, IO, MN, and ND to bag some new states... here are the courses that seem to work with my travel plans:
- NE: Crystal Cove Park, Seretoma Park
- IA: Westside Park, Miller Park
- MN: Adrian, Lake Sylvan, Woodlake Park
- ND: Iwen Park North, Iwen Park South

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
DSCJNKY
