TVK's opening line for Hammer of Thor in Redlands CA made me chuckle...

TVK continues to dominate this thread! This is from his 2016 review of Walrond Park in Hollins VA...

"In my disc tossing career I've thrown discs into oceans, rivers, creeks, ditches, swamps and beaches. I've thrown into corrals, pens, school yards, back yards, front yards, court yards and alleys. I've thrown into tennis courts, bocce courts, basketball courts, handball courts and the occasional picnic. I've thrown onto highways, freeways, byways, thruways and toll roads. I've throw over fences, buildings, barns, sheds, shacks, sleeping dogs, cows, sheep and assorted other farm animals but I've never, ever thrown onto an Official Soap Box Derby track. I should have fired a disc over the fence just to add it to the list."

...isn't there a Dr. Seuss book called Oh, the Places Your Disc will Go?

Never thrown onto a derby track, but I have marched on one...

From Benny Benny Benny's review of Hobbs Farm:

If you land in the water or the rough off the bridge, do not retrieve your disc. Just buy a new one. That may seem like a harsh recommendation, but nothing like the stay at home order when all you gotta do is wear a damn mask.

I think there is also the opportunity at a Bowling Green course, though I don't remember which one.

One disc ended up on top of a homeless man's RV and hey (he) kindly climbed up and we let him Celebrity (Celebratorily?) throw for us
definitely a unique experience. for some reason i envisioned Bill from king of the hill up there throwing it back with a beer in his hand.

The closest course to my house features this hole, review by prerube (South County Regional):

"Hole 11: Tees directly over a handicapped parking spot and is unplayable when race track is in use. Road can be in play for bad shots."

Not technically a Derby track (large RC cars) but we have the advantage of teeing off directly over a handicapped parking spot! No chit.

I just like that I played all three courses referenced.
