100th Course Suggestions?

So my buddy ScottJB and I are approaching 100 courses played. We're coming from St. Louis, MO. and we each thought it'd be cool to play something special for our 100th. So I'm looking for input.

Criteria: It has to be something that I can drive to and play 2+ rounds, then drive home. I think no more than 5 hrs drive time one way.
Also, we want to do it in early spring, maybe even late winter (Late March?)

My own thought was Holler in the Hills. That's the kind of thing I'm looking for. Something really 5 star and notable.

Of course I have searched the course listings, but I think I'd like to hear from live people.

Where should I go?

Looking at the courses you have already played Holler in the Hills or going towards the Quad city region would be your best bet. I can't speak for any of those courses because I've yet to play them (will be next year), but from what i've heard and read they are pretty awesome.

My suggestion, if you are willing to take the trip would be playing Flip City for your 100th course. I played it for my 100th course along with the Mason County courses and Leviathan. Epic. I had a great weekend of discn, hiking the dunes, throwin back some brews in beautiful Michigan.

What ever course you decide to play I'm sure you'll have a blast. I'm planning on crushing enough courses to play my 200th course next year. Now that is going to be tough to decide on.

Hands down, drive to Memphis and play the two courses at the Hill and 6-7 miles away at Meeman Shelby state park down the road due north 2 more courses. All very fun and worth the drive.

It's an experience for sure.

Cinci area

Or if you haven't played the course in Burlington Kentucky called Idewild its worth driving from anywhere to play. Just south of Cincinnati, Oh. Very Badass lots of terrain to cover huge shot selection needed, very fun, and on you're way home can stop in Cinci to play Mt. Airy. It's just a good time all around.

Assuming you don't hit anything new before then, I suggest Mesker Park in Evansville, IN as 98. The Goat Path in Cub Run, KY as 99 and Holler in the Hills in Brownsville KY as 100. It would make for a really fun 2 or 3 day trip. You can camp out at The Goat Path.

My vote is for a Quad Cities trip.
-Camden I
