Columbus, Ohio?

If so the courses in the area are quite spread out, the best ones within 30 minutes of the city center are, Brent Hambrick Memorial Course (in Westerville), Simsbury Park (in Pickerington) and The Player's Course at Alum Creek (in Galena, but really just North of Coumbus near Polaris Pkwy.

From the south end of town they are each at least 30 minutes away, with Simsbury probably being the closest.

Or Columbus, GA? One good course here. If that's the case, PM me and I'll guide you.

You could always stop and play the new Toledo (Perrysburg) course on your way down

PRELIMINARY (quite) plans...

...and subject to being able to play some private courses during the holiday season and who knows what else (like weather, finding campsites nearby, etc):

Heading South:
Sat 12/22: Drive to Spotsylvania, VA... camp near the blockhouse.
Sun 12/23: Play The Blockhouse courses, (maybe +1 nearby), bed down same as prev night.
Mon 12/24: drive to Linville NC /Sugaree. might play a 2nd round and bed down or or head to Charlotte and play a round before bedding down there.
Tue 12/25: Charlotte: Bradford, + 2 others (already played Renny, Nevin, Hornets, Brackets, Winthrop)... bed down near Charlotte.
Wed 12/26: drive to North Augusta, SC Riverview Park + Hippodrome
Thu 12/27: Hippodrome

Fri 12/28: drive to Ft. Lauderdale chill with family & friends until Jan 2.

Heading North:
Wed 1/2: Drive to Birmingham, AL and bed down.
Thu 1/3: Play George Ward, Greg Carter, Civitan, drive 2.5 hrs to ATL, bed down.
Fri 1/4: play 3 quality courses in the ATL... (or one round at Flyboy, if possible ), bed down.
Sat 1/5: Head back to MI, maybe squeeze in a round in TN on the way back?
Sun 1/6: RECOVER.

That should give me about 16 rounds at some nice (new to me) courses, + two new states, with a few days to chillax in between. Hopefully, without having to camp in weather that's too cold.

Thoughts, criticisms, recommendations for campgrounds, offers to meet up and play... other things I should think about?

You might consider Stoney Hill, which is more or less between Charlotte and Augusta, if the scheduling works out. You can camp on the course for free.

I would check with Rich before planning on playing Sugaree then. It may well not be open to play as he usually closes it down for the winter. And it could be under a few feet of snow as well.

Sugaree has always been closed from tree harvest to spring, but now that we have signs and I am out of the guiding business, the course could stay open year round (weather permitting).

Plans on hold: just found out I need to replace my hot water heater. Will cost about $350 for the heater and another $350 or so for permit and installation. But the need for hot water is >>>the need for disc golf. Between paying for son's tuition, and new laptop, this was money I wasn't planning on.
Will reconsider after seeing how finances look after this is done.

Have to buy a permit to install a new water heater? That's rough! If you head back this direction there are 2 new courses in Morristown
