GoodDriveBadPutt, I'm curious what you think of Milo. I love the setting, but it's too long and too open for my tastes, and the navigation isn't great (although I still gave it a 4; it's still a pretty fun course).

To answer the OP, Horning's Hideout is a great place to spend a day. Meadow Ridge is epic and pretty tough. If you only have time to go there, don't hesitate. It's top 10 for a reason.

Stub Stewart is okay. Nice and wooded, but a little too tight (I did ace a shot there when I visited in July, but otherwise I found the course a little aggravating).

I have played about 10 rounds at Pier. It is such a unique public course with the gorgeous Douglas firs that you almost have to visit, but after playing a couple rounds there this summer, I realized it's a very good course...but it's not really top notch.

If you have time to go south, Dexter is really fun, and Whistler's is terrific.

Great, now I'm going to spend the rest of the night thinking about Oregon. For about 4 months of the year, there is nowhere better. Grab a marion berry shake at Burgerville and enjoy the sun.

I got to play Dexter a couple of times, and it's one of my favorite park sytle courses I've ever played. Not that this helps with what you're currently asking....

Summer months. Summer doesn't really start until about July, but it extends into October as I understand (I could be wrong, it might only be beautiful for 3 months).

During the summer it's sunny, dry, and in the 70s all the time. I've made two disc golf trips up there the past two summers. Great courses, great local beer, great weather.

Hornings was pretty good. Meadow Ridge was a lot of fun; the other two courses were decent. I did like Milo, definitely more open style course, but enjoyable. Made me wish I could throw farther, that's for sure. Pier Park was cool too, nothing too crazy but solid. Not too shabby overall.
