Other Info/Notes:
I began playing in the mid-1990s while growing up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, running around Buchmiller and Roland Parks with a cobra and piranha. I started playing more seriously (i.e., with a bag) just before moving to Pittsburgh in 2009. I appreciate disc golf courses that emphasize the art of shot-making and reward you with disc flight paths about which you can daydream. I play most of my disc golf at nearby Schenley Park, but I'd consider Deer Lakes my true "home course."

Based on some combined metric* of challenge, fun, aesthetics, and design, here is my ordinal ranking of the top 10+ of the courses I have played:
1) Deer Lakes Park
2) Maple Hill DGC
3) Seven Springs Mountain Resort
4) Camp Sankanac
5) Moraine State Park
6) T2-The Turkeynator
7) Roland Park
8) Orange Crush
9) Carousel Park
10) Slippery Rock University (9 holes)
11) Buchmiller Park
12) Two-Mile Run Extension (9 holes)
13) Seth Burton Memorial
14) Turkey Lake Park
15) Knob Hill Park

* These are my "selfish" rankings. For ratings based on what I think is best more generally for the entire population of disc golfers, see my DGCR ratings. For example, I wouldn't care selfishly if a course only had my level tees (blue) but would rate it higher in my DGCR ratings if it has tees for multiple player levels.

My 5 favorite discs:
--Wraith (Star or DX)
--Teebird (DX)
--Cobra (DX)
--Rhyno (any plastic)
--Dart (Star)
Honorable Mentions: Sentinel (Sirius), Firebird (Champion), Katana, Piranha, Magic
