Best NC courses not Charlotte Area

I know its sacrilege and alienates 90% of the dgcr members from NC but I'd like to know what are the best/top courses not in the Queen City Region. A top 10 would be nice maybe include some homegrowns....anything but the same old Charlotte Drivel we always hear.....I'm heading down to NC again and will hit Charlotte (I'm curious bout RL Smith and Bradford and want another crack at the biggies but would like to hit the less talked about gems from coast to mountains.

when you coming? you should wait until Houck's Rock Ridge is done in Pittsboro. Swingin DBs is right down the road from there as well but I'm not sure if the redesign is completed yet. the DBs tourney is in 3 weeks so I could tell you for sure by then what the deal is with that one. you'd probably enjoy DBs it can be an ******* of a course kinda like Nevin.

i would start by hitting up Mando and asking about Bear Tree in his area. i'm not sure if you'll actually go to the beach because it's kinda out of the way for just the few good courses out there but Glenburnie in New Bern is good from what i hear; then Castle Hayne is a must if you go down that way. beyond all else outside of charlotte and the mountains i recommend Castle Hayne, i think you'd appreciate it.

Rockness and Sasquatch are a good combo in Roxboro which is an hourish north of the Durham area. then in the Raleigh neck of the woods I'd Buckhorn, UNC, Zebulon, Valley, Leigh Farm, Cedar Hills in that order. then on the road between west NC and raleigh if you come i'd make sure to stop at cedarock/wellspring.

Sugaree, Bear Tree, and Ashe County would be three awesome courses in the general direction of Boone. Also Highland Hills and Glen Hilton aren't too far from those three. Bear Tree can be tough to get into and is a bit of a hike as is Ashe County, and Highland Hills for that matter.

I would check with Robert Leonard aka _MTL_
He's apparently pretty much the expert on disc golf in NC, and from what he says, he himself designed the best course in NC, a temporary called Forest Hills.
