It's a pretty good hotbed for DG. Dayton and Cincy both have thriving scenes and Columbus isn't far away and they also have pretty good DG.
Yep, just south of Dayton, so most of the Cincy and northern Kentucky courses are within an hour's drive. That includes Lincoln Ridge and Idlewild. We almost have too many quality choices here.

Those ultimate players have great wrist snap. If disc golf was played with putters and mids only, they could easily climb to the top of the distance elite imop, but fast drivers require more arm speed and I think..that's where they are lacking at least..initially. ? ? ?

"Arm speed" guys uselly strong arm the disc into a throwler. Snap is important to keep the disc flying stable even with wrap speed drivers. Bent arm throwers still get snap from the wrist, so does the other forms, but maybe not as focused on the wrist snap.

Disc golf requires different body dynamics than Ulitmate does, that is the big difference. In disc golf we do not have to worry about defenders blocking our shots and we are allowed to move with the disc in hand.

I played a round with Brodie in 2014 at Seymour Smith park in Omaha, NE. I was traveling there for work and was playing a solo round when I spotted him on the course. I'm a fan (I have played lots of ultimate) and went over to greet him. He invited me to join him for the rest of the round he was playing with employees from DiscStore.com. He was in town doing promotional work with them. He threw a Pole Cat and was not very good. Afterward we all went out for Cuban food. It was pretty freaking cool! I found Brodie to be pretty pompous and boisterous, but he seemed to have a nice heart. Definitely not someone I'd choose to be close friends with, however.

That’s why I was surprised to see that Ohio’s top rated course is only 4.13.

But there are a lot of courses in that range with more added recently.
Armco, Ceasars Ford, Hidden Ridge and Southfork are 4 recent courses that should match that type of rating.
SW Ohio also includes Northern Ky where Idlewild and Lincoln Ridge are located.

I don't want to step on toes, but I spend a week in Miamisburg/Germantown every year and the only decent course I have found in the Dayton area is Scyamore Trails.

Now that hell wind that is always blowing off the river, it makes that course so much harder than the layout suggests.

Perhaps I need to contact you GoobyPls, before I go next year to get recommendations of where to play.
