Big Al, I'm assuming that was not just a disc golf trip. But you certainly got to play some top courses along the way. I've been playing forever and would love to hit Water Works and Idelwild.

In my mind, that is the disc equivalent of a good ball golf course. In ball golf, a shot that is off the fairway forces the player to make a tougher shot, but not necessarily one that erases his chance of a solid par. Some courses I've played, if you miss the intended line, you're guaranteed a bogey or worse. There is a reason Houck is one of the best (if not THE best) designers ever.
I do better on courses designed by people who have never played disc golf. I'm just a wimp!

Ya, had a 2-day conference in KC, so I was pressed for time. I was very lucky to have so many top courses right along my route though. Idlewild and Water Works are both worth traveling far to play, and both have other awesome courses nearby.

new personal record this weekend. 6 on a spin through charlotte. it was really tight, with the early sunset this time of the year and we were racing towards albemarle at the end but worth it as fox chase was the highlight of the day.

i have some 4 course days planned for the enxt few months but i doubt i come near that 6 for a long time

I've had multiple 3 courses on a day. At least 5 days with 3 courses.

Nah, we don't like to play courses we haven't seen before in the dark.

we played 6 once.. that was 1 too many.

It gets really mentally frustrating after a while when you don't know exactly where tees/pins/paths are!
