Finnon has the potential to be a top notch course, all it needs it some people who love and care about it in that area. It needs some serious mowing in the summer, as well as some signs to direct you around.

Default Mohammad vs. Steady Ed Hendrick

Steady ed invented disc golf as well as the basket. He also revolutionized the frisbee in a co-effort with the people of Wham-O! Therefore, a disc golf Mecca should reside in the state he called Home. I.E. California or Georgia.

we could go on and on. for me the scenery and atmosphere makes for good golf. crowded suburbia with hot sweltering temps in the summer ie charlotte immediately takes all course ratings down a notch or two...

so, me personally, I'm a nature freak. one of the main reasons why I like dg... so the mecca is yeah somewhere special. like when you are camping out on great dg getaway. you can see the stars not just light pollution and smog.

this mecca is located in .................................................. ...........................................

For competitive disc golfers my vote is the World championships. Disc golfers from all over will descend upon great courses wherever they are each summer.

According to my Buzzz with the 2011 RFDO stamp, this year's will be the 40th anniversary??!!
This ^ and I believe it has the oldest league in the country. Thanks Jim Palmeri #23. The league started in August of 1970 including tournaments hell they gave away a brand new 1974 Datsun B210. And Dan "Stork" Riddick won it. The next year Oak Grove Park had permanent poles. I personally believe disc golf was started as a organized sport in Rochester NY.

This year will be the 29th Pittsburgh Flying Disc Open. Also held Worlds, has awesome courses. The quantity is lacking, but good quality golf. The club is awesome. Maybe not the best mecca, but it's gotta be up there.
