I will disagree with you CC. I would argue Pride with a guide/spotter over Harbin just because it's not just a wide open windfest. I like that it's so primitive though. Many probably wouldn't want to climb down into and out of a creek twice to play four holes though.

I'm going to have to disagree about Sycamore Trails. The first four holes will make you wonder if you're really on a disc golf course. It's OK to go there but I just couldn't go without warning ANYONE that thinks about playing that course.

The rest of the holes are OK with a couple exceptions.

I would recommend Belmont for a fun round in Dayton.

I just played it two months ago and actually went back to play it again the next day. I really enjoyed it. It can be a bit confusing from 10 to 11 but other than that it was a fun course. I am not sure when you were there last but I thought hole one was awesome and actually birdied it, Hole 2 is a bit unfair and needs some trees cut down but after that it is a fun course. Take a map for sure but other than that I thought it was fun and plan to definitely get back to it again this year. I think the only thing about one is that don't go after a rain because you may not be able to cross the creek. I do think some basket positions were over thought but other than that it is on a nice piece of land. 10 was a hole I did not like because it was near the highway.

Belmont was fun also but can be really confusing as you see baskets for other holes that are not the hole you're throwing and not see the basket for the hole you are throwing. Just be careful of the gnome with no pants at the local krogers!!

It's been years since I played there and I played it once and never went back. I know when I was there it was run down with baskets missing and just generally in bad shape. May be in better shape now.

Neither Pride nor Harbin are going to win awards for sure. I just recommend Harbin almost last for courses in the area because I'm not a fan of wide open courses that rely on wind for difficulty (which Turtlecreek also suffers from on the front 7, but you at least find your way into the woods eventually). I know they didn't have much to work with out at Harbin and did a decent job with what they have, but it's just pretty dull to me. It does have much better tee pads than Pride though.

I think it's great that we have a wide array of courses available to us here though. I know Harbin sees a lot more play than Pride ever has.

Sorry about that got a little off track. You will probably do well to get in idlewild, lincoln and airy in one day. Like I said if I know the exact date and i have nothing going on at work hit me up and i will show around idlewild.
