Default How many new courses did you play this summer?

As a teacher, the end to my summer is fast approaching. This got me thinking about what I'd accomplished this summer, most importantly within disc golf.

I got to play 10 new courses this summer. Some of them were really good (Slippery Rock, Warrior's Path), Harmon Hills was great, and Sugaree was an experience I will never forget (thanks again, Rich!). I do feel a bit cheated, as a quad strain forced me to cut my June road trip short, and I missed out on playing at IDGC and Trophy Lakes. But I'm happy to have gotten to play what I did, including in areas of the country I hadn't played in before.

I also chained out on what would have been my first ace, at the Illinois Institute of Technology's course this past Sunday. Some day.

Complete list of new courses I played this summer:
- Slippery Rock
- Illinois Institute of Technology
- Warrior's Path State Park
- Harmon Hills
- Winged Deer Park
- Richmond Hill
- Sugaree
- James Island County Park
- John's Island Park
- Haut Gap

How about y'all?

I was fortunate to be sent to IA for work 3 times and hit Dubuque Veterans Memorial, Shaver Park & Wildcat Bluff. All very fun courses and when you're used to MT where the next cool course is at least 2 hours away it's a treat to have so many options. Going back for 2 more trips before the end of Oct. and hope to bag at least 2 more but not if that means I miss WCB. Definitely going back for more there!

I just started a couple months ago and have managed to play 20 different courses in 4 different states. Its been great trying out new courses and after my trip to Easter Washington /Idaho I wish I still lived there. Great courses!

I hit 9 new courses at and on my way to and from am worlds. In the tournaments that I am signed up for, I am expected to play 3 more courses I have never played (and 1 new country!). I expect to be somewhere between 15 and 20 new courses by the end of the year.

I also work in the schools.
Thought I had more this summer, but it was only 16 new courses. I think I actually bag more courses on weekend road trips during the year than I got this summer: money was tight, and I had two big trips (the National Senior Games in Minneapolis and Am Worlds in Kalamazoo). But I'm getting to the point where every new course requires a road trip (5-6 hours driving time, plus the time at the courses I'm bagging) .

I have more course bagging potential at other times of the year, too, in part because of the brutal summers around here. I have a similar travel time to snag new courses myself, and it's tough to drive that length to play a subpar course in 100 degree weather.

By the by, Cincinnati and New Orleans are a 12 hour drive apart. Maybe we can meet in the middle during fall break to catch a round or three?
