Yeah I've been lucky, and I definitely go out of my way to play the good ones. Wish I had more top tier courses in my immediate area, but I get to travel often enough and visit my family in PA that I probably get to hit more quality courses than most. It's been neat to see a few of the early courses I played stay near the top even as I've gotten a true sense of what an apex course is. I can't overstate how much Orange Crush gets overlooked, for instance.

I know, right? And she wasn't gentle on me that's for sure. What kills me is that I grew up 20 minutes from Moraine, always complaining about how there was nothing to do in Butler, PA. It's suitably ironic that I move away only to get into disc golf and discover that the area has some of the best courses that are out there. Figures.

If my top 5 courses were all the same place, I'd play:

Flyboy the most. It (was/is) better than all of them.
Idlewild next.
Nockamixon would get less play than Idlewild just because the footing's so much tougher.
Iron Hill -- just not as pretty as the top three but I'd have to play it, it's Iron Hill.
Fifth . .. I don't have a good way to delineate a fifth among Sankanac, Jordan Creek, Circle R meadow (<-- really liked playing there, seems under-rated to me . . . just saying) Essex, or Quaker's Challenge.

All the others' of the 100 I've played are another notch below those.

Interesting DiscNdave's (local Philly guy, played 200+ and whose opinion I respect) has moved Maple Hill to the top of his list. I haven't played it yet as the only real chance I had was the Vibram weekend, but I will make it sooner rather than later . . . just saying.

I don't find either a Sugaree or a Cranberry Disco in the database. Are these nicknames? Temps? RIP?

Sugaree is extinct.

You're a blood traitor.

Sigh. At least patapsco isn't there.

1. IDGC - WR Jackson Memorial DGC in Appling, GA. I rated this course a very rare five(5). This course has just about every thing to challenge every shot required to score well in our sport and the good shots are rewarded while the bad shots are punished extremely well. There is a very good reason as to why John Houck is Disc Golf's premier course designer.

2. IDGC - Steady Ed Headrick Memorial DGC in Appling, GA. I rated this course a very rare five (5). I rated it based almost entirely on the long tees as I played a mixed of the two while I was here and found the long tees which I did not play looked really well. The Chuck Kennedy/Tom Monroe combo for the design of this course is almost perfect with the multiple landing areas/flight paths to be an especially impressive aspect of the course.

3. Horning's Hideout - Meadow Ridge in North Plains, OR. I rated this course a 4.5. Other than a few tweener/filler holes this course is pure magic. Whether it be long bomber shots downhill through a bunch of trees or an almost 1000 foot par five hole over rolling hills this course has just about everything but a water shot. With two other courses on site geared toward amateurs you have a course for everyone on one piece of property. I love camping out here and playing all weekend!

4. Diamond X in Billings, MT. I rated this course a 4.5. This is half Disc Golf and half hiking/rock climbing. One of the more unique courses I have ever played and for sure the most rugged, you have 36 holes of amazing beauty and challenge. I've only played it once but in that time I fell in love and wish to this day that I can go back again. Bring lots of water and look out for rattlesnakes though!

5. Four Mound - Cape Fear in Spokane. WA. I rated this course a 4.5. This is another destination area especially with three large 18 hole courses on one man's private land. This course is another rugged place with beauty and challenge. There are two other courses on site but I have only played 6-8 holes of each of those and don't think I could rate them yet.

6. Milo Mciver State Park in Estacada, OR. I rated this course a 4.5. AS we all know Milo is home to the NT event 'Beaver State Fling' every year. You get 27 holes of 'throw until your arm hurts' fairways with many par four and par fives holes. Open, Tight, LONG and a few short holes mixed in really challenge every aspect of the game here for even professionals.

7. Seatac DGC in Seatac WA. I rated this course a 4.5. The new layout/extra nine holes are pretty amazing to ramp up an already VERY challenging course into a monster par 87-92 depending on pin position. If this course had more elevation it could be a five(5) star course.

8. IDGC - Jim Warner memorial DGC in Appling, GA. I rated this course a 4.5. Jim Warner for me is the 'worst' course at IDGC and I think it's better than about 200 of the 200+ courses that I've played. Not quite as long or challenging as the other mentioned courses here this is still a fun butt kicking course with a few creeks coming into play as well.

9. Tom Triplett DGC in Savannah, GA. I rated this course a 4.5. I loved TT right from the beginning as in the Northwest where I'm from you don't get to see many courses with multiple tee pads and to see one where it is actually working was even cooler. This place is very pretty and has a lot of holes for just about anyone, I personally enjoyed the contrast between tight woods and open field bombers near the water.

10. Shelton Springs DGC in Shelton Springs, WA. I rated this course a 4.5. This is an amazing piece of land sculpted out of the forest. Multiple tee pads and tight woods with a few open bomber holes this course really has it all and challenges for the best in the state.

Whippin' Post as number one? Nice. I was really blown away by it last weekend.

If it should merit a 5 from you that would push it into the top 25, which would be cool to see after all these years.
