Looking to move, best state for disc golf?
Currently I live in South Dakota. I'll be graduating from college in the spring and I'm tired of living in this state. In your opinion, whats the best state/city to move to for outdoor activities and disc golf?

Just find a place where the weather is to your liking and go where there are lots of dots.

Finding a place where you can get meaningful employment might be important too.

Well not too far away the Twin Cities have a great mecca of disc golf leagues and tourneys with many options weekly. Monday-Thursday within 30 miles you generally have 2 or 3 league options per day and 1 to 2 instate tourneys per week. Other good ones would be Charlotte, NC, Southern California, Texas, Michigan, Wisconsin or Illinois. MN seems to have most states beat with the league scene judging from a friend who moved from MN to Sacramento this year who has to drive twice as far just to find a league when he had 2 better options here.

I love my courses here in Michigan, we have a lot and some are great. I am really impressed with the course density in Minnesota, and Wisconsin has some really good ones too. If you're into winter sports as well, Colorado would be a good choice.

Personally I'd say put employment opportunities ahead of disc golf though, unless you're going pro and have a big inheritance ;)

Central Iowa has a decent economy, low cost of living, many good courses within the Des Moines metro, and lots more within a two hour drive.

I'm not too worried about employment. I'm graduating with 2 BS degrees: Computer & Network Security, Computer Network & System Administration. There are tech jobs everywhere. I'm just mostly tired of harsh winters, I'm looking for something milder. I love Minnesota, but you guys get more snow than I do down here in South Dakota =P

Charlotte, NC, 30+ 18 holes course within 35 mile radius, as well as an additional 20+ 9 hole course. The local Charlotte Disc Golf Club has a league event everyday of the week as well as weekly PDGA rated rds. We can play all year around as well. Doesn't get much better!

With more than 60 courses locally, the weather to play year round, and at least the top 2 courses in the world nearby, Dallas is likely the number 1 candidate right now for unequivocal disc golf mecca.

For more mild weather, try
Charlotte, NC
DFW, TX or
St. Louis, MO (my home town)
* We've had 8 new 18 hole courses in the last 2 years - 1 of those is an add on to an existing 18 hole course, which is already epic by itself!

Indian camp Creek
Fort Zumwalt
Carrollton Park
Logan College
Deer Creek Supposedly the fist installment of a 3 course disc golf mecca

Sioux Passage This is the one that is currently having another 18 installed on location - should be finished by late November

There are also easily over 100 courses within an hour to an hour and a half drive of St. Louis

Dallas gets cold but not the north. It also gets insanely hot in summer.
