Wish I lived much, much closer to everything on your list.
I loved them both, but as an aging discer I would probably play GG more frequently because it is less physically demanding, I played them in the summer and it was hot out a Stafford whereas GG is shady near the bay. GG is more scenic too.

I can see how GGP would appeal to others in your situation. No doubt I will be there myself one of these days.

I just don't get too many opportunities to play in the mountains, which is why Stafford is a bit higher on my list.

All this talk about California disc golf while my current local temp is 10 really makes me want to head to the Left Coast ASAP.

When you get out there be sure to make an appt to play Birds of Paradise. Stafford is a workout and BOP is it's big brother.

Stafford kicked by butt for sure. I am looking forward to a BOP style beatdown.

I hope our schedules work out whenever I make it back there.

1) Sugaree (NC)
2) Harmon Hills in TN (dam close to sugaree for me)
3) Hybrid Hills (NC) *my own temp course that combines the landscape of Harmon, Ashe County and Elk Mountain all into one 10 hole par 40 layout
4) Ashe County Park
5) Rockness Monster (NC)

This is showing no bias as to geographically region either, I have only played in NC, SC, TN and GA.. To prove it is not biased I have left out the very course I designed and built in Simple Pleasures out, I love it but it does not come anywhere close to my top 5

From my entire 'played' list, Non-Charlotte entries:


1) Fox Chase--Albemarle, NC
2) Grand Central Station--Central, SC
3) Trophy Lakes--Charleston, SC
4) East Roswell Park--Roswell, GA
5) Groves Park (The Mounds)--Oakridge, TN

Honorable Mentions: Tommy Schumpert Park--Knoxville, TN. This course is still a work in progress, but promises to be a beast, if the front 9 is any indication. Also, Stumpy Creek. Foothills, in Easley, SC is nutty, too.

Charlotte List:

1) Nevin
2) Hornet's Nest--Both Layouts
3) Renny Gold
4) RL Smith
5) Eastway

Honorable mention(s):
Bradford (probably needs to knock Eastway off, but Eastway is sort of my home course.)
Elong--The Angry Beev
Scrapyard.

For sure buddy! Here in the next couple of years, fingers crossed that is, I can start working on a permanent course there. Its only like 5 minutes away from Mars Hill but once you get on hole 3 you seriosuly think you are in some kind of enchanted forest from the lord of the rings! It stays freakishly quiet up on that mountain and when we played it with just a little bit of snow on the ground there were bobcat tracks all over downed logs!!
