Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia (July):
With stops in Victoria BC, Tacoma, WA and Salem OR, there should be bagging opportunities aplenty. Looking become an international disc golfer and hit some new (to me) Oregon courses with disc golfing relatives. Wish list:

Shelton Springs
NAD Park
Rainshadow DGC
Layritz DGC (tone course)
Lucky Mud
LL Stub Stewart
Horning’s Hideout
Buxton Woods
Adair Park

Just a heads up about Victoria disc golf. Layritz is a notch in the course bagging belt and that is all. If you have any time while in Victoria it is absolutely worth the time to take a 25 minute ferry ride over to the legendary Golf Island Park on Pender Island or over to Salt Spring Island to play Hart Memorial (tones) or the Salt Spring Island Golf and Country Club which is by far the best course in the area IMHO.

I've got a little course up at my place which is about an hour from Victoria. Mix of tones and baskets but with killer views and challenging terrain. I'd be happy to show you around if you've got the time!

Yes, I agree that Layritz looks like a notch rather than an epic disc golf experience lol. Wife and I will be traveling together so I'm not sure how much disc golf time I'll have on that leg of the trip. I know she wants to see some of the gardens around Victoria.

Thank you for the recommendations! I would love to ferry out to one of the islands but we will see how schedule negotiations work out (I'm already lobbying for Lucky Mud, Horning's, etc. on the way to Oregon).

Nice! Your kind offer is greatly appreciated, and I will keep it in mind when we are putting together out schedule. Thank you!

I'm going to be in south central Kentucky for a week in May or June. And in September I'll spend about 7 days fly fishing in Superior, Montana.

If anyone knows any good courses I'd love to check them out. I'm new to the sport so anything different is good!

might happen as soon as this spring... 15 pretty much done and work under way on the last 3...

I also have an as yet un-named one near Gordonsville VA (home of the Barbecue Exchange which is worth the trip in and of itself) that will be a destination course for sure. That one should open in May.

More excellent news, please post information when appropriate. Looks like your Gordonsville VA course would fit nicely into a Walnut Creek loop, since I still haven't played there or Meadowcreek Gardens.

And any place called Barbecue Exchange is worth checking out.

Going to see family in Columbus Ohio. What should I play? I know the reservoir on the river is popular. OSU looks fun. Anything else in the area I should play?

I probably won't get to do too much dg travel....but ideally ill make the 3 hour trip up to Highbridge. Also, being only a little over an hour from Minneapolis/St. Paul region, I'd like to bag a few courses over there.

My course bagging is in its infancy...but it's gotta start somewhere!!!!

I think I've got a few more that I haven't checked off on here. Wanna update that too. But I've really only played locally, so it's probably less than a dozen.
