I truly think Nevin has the best DG.....I really enjoyed the sinisterness of Renny's baskets and Reedy is just a damn fun good time

All of the courses IMO were designed well with risk reward and thought process put into every scenario

I played Nevin for the first time on New Year's Eve. It was actually pretty fun even though I did not shoot that well.

it says regardless of skill level. Nevin is a poor choice for new players, it is an interesting challenge that will destroy the motivation of a new player.

For a quick fun round, North Cabbaras was a great 9 holer. very beginner friendly, but still fun.

I really liked Hornet's Nest, just plain solid, and while I didn't play the Charlotte's Web layout, I'm glad I got to see it - woulda kicked my @$$!

I enjoyed Nevin, but it's not for everyone - I prefer tight technical courses.
If you hate threading the needle hole after hole, avoid Nevin.

Renny is simply a killer course, challenging, beautiful, and a really discer's course - very complete.
It must be seen to be truly appreciated. If you can only vist one course in the area, hit Renny.

Good point. If you don't have control then you will spend most of the time at nevin the schule.

Eastway or Reedy would be good for inexperienced players.

FYI - Winthrop is only about a 30 min drive from Charlotte. No one in our group thatought going there was a bad move, fun course. read a few reviews and see what you think.

Bailey would be the beginner's course in the area.

If I am going to Charlotte and I suck I still wanna see the best damn course possible...regardless of skill level means (to me) I wanna experience the course I will go home and tell everyone about

I didn't travel to Charlotte to play beginner golf I came to experience some disc golf madness

doing otherwise would be like going to Las Vegas and playing Church Bingo cause it's not as intense as the strip
