Best major metropolitan area for DG

Ok. I'm not sure if this has been done before, as all I have researched and found deals strictly with number of courses... But in your opinions, what is THE best major metro area for disc golf?!? I'm not talking strictly sheer number of courses within a certain radius. I'm talking about EVERYTHING involved. Such as, number of quality courses, # of 18+ hole courses compared to 9 holers, amount of different weekly leagues, well-ran leagues, amount of PDGA sanctioned events annually, shops to buy plastic, positive attitudes of local chuckers, growth of the sport in the community, etc, etc, etc.... And, go!

a few relative factors that skew the perspective:
-what constitutes a major metro area
-what terrain/setting do you prefer for golf (east coast woods, mountain elevation, lush or dry, city park or secluded)
-everyone thinks their local leagues are the best... or the worst, or whatever. most people haven't been around enough to know the difference

personally, i think DFW rates pretty highly in most of those categories but i understand that a lot of people don't like the TX terrain, or at least their perception of it. i've found TX and it's courses to be not nearly as flat, dry, and monotonous as i expected.

I've searched far and wide. It's hard to compare to Charlotte.

Can't argue with that it's definitely a disc golf Mecca.

I am biased, I live by Winthrop. There is a disc golf course in every school grounds and at most parks and churches in Rock Hill, SC just below Charlotte. Then I have the lake to play at, and now a new top tier course south of here in Chester SC. Then there are now 6 courses between here and charlotte. Small ones at churches and schools again, but there nonetheless. Charlotte has many courses, and they only get more plentiful the further north you go. Plus we have asheville close to us, middle SC, and Georgia. I can play courses for months and never see the same hole twice.

Actually, it's been done ad nauseam.

The overwhelming answer is, "Where I live."
