Reality is most decent size cities have plenty of decent job opportunities and at least a decent (if not thriving) disc golf scene. Not knocking SD, but any city with an NFL or MLB team will likely be a step up from that in terms of both job opportunities and disc golf courses, simply as a function of population. Perhaps the type of work/industry you want to work in could be a factor as well.

Dude. I moved from northern ohio, flat ground and horrible winters. Virginia has warm, but not too warm weather, and outdoor activities galore. Ocean, mountains, and TONS of history. I chose to move here out of every state in the country.

cold doesnt bother me, snow/ice does. I played this weekend, 45 degrees out with ~10mph winds. That was still t-shirt and shorts weather for me.

Western PA is super special - home of the 2015 Worlds! Moraine, Knob Hill, and Deer Lakes are all world class, Orange Crush/Seth Burton isn't too far away, and there are a half dozen other quality courses in the immediate area. Can't go wrong with that area. Only downside is the brutal winter.

I would recommend Portland Oregon. Great courses and mild weather year round. Sometimes it might rain but that doesn't stop the discs from flying. (I moved from SD 3 years ago to the great NW and IMO Portland has the best concentration of great courses in the NW region)

From experience, I really enjoyed living in places with multiple good courses within 30 minutes. Right now I live in Boston with a number of stellar courses 60-90 minutes away but virtually nothing within an hour. This means I can't really play after work, and it takes a big chunk of the day on the weekend.

I would take 10 rounds a week at 3-star courses over 2 rounds a week at 4.5-star courses.

If you're looking for tolerable weather and a good disc golf scene, consider Kansas City. As a fellow Midwesterner, I can tell you this is one of the most underrated cities. Great food, affordable rent, winters that aren't as brutal as South Dakota and summers that aren't horrific. And the disc golf is terrific (no, I'm not from there and have never lived there).

I've made a couple disc golf trips out there to visit a friend. Really great courses. It's obvious everyone there loves their city.

The summer weather in Portland is quietly underrated.

My choices would be (not from experience) just from observation.

Charlotte- Good weather and great courses
San Diego- Great weather and good courses
DFW- Good weather and great courses

OK. Hands down California has the BEST weather and some epic courses. Forget those other states. Sunny almost all the time, Los Angeles, Central Coast, Monterey bay area, Santa Cruz, San Diego, San Fransisco, first course of Disc Golf installed in Pasadena. And the women.......ohhhh man the women.
