Talking Best/Worst smelling holes you've played

I know, I know... bear with me here (and TRY to keep your minds out of the gutter!).

I was playing my local course the other day (KCDGC) and one hole (16) plays through a little orange grove that seems to constantly produce orange blossoms that permeate the air in such a pleasant way, it's hard not to notice how good it smells. Got me thinking what some of the best and worst you've played are...

Best:
Escondido Rotary DGC - Hole 16 - Seemingly always smelling like orange blossoms!

Worst:
Pier Park DGC - Hole #18 (or #4 for winter layout) - You can catch some serious sewage stench here every once and a while (from the Columbia Water Treatment Plant??)

Whachu got?

Best:
Seneca Creek State Park when flowering winter honeysuckle perfumes about half the course in April. Like disc golfing in a perfume factory.

Worst:
Seneca Creek State Park - Hole #13. One of my favorite holes in all of disc golf, and absolutely beautiful with mature hardwood forest along the creek. But - the old combined sewer system leaves the creek smelling like sewage after heavy rain.

Worst : Windwood Presbyterian Church - Hole #13. It plays right next to a pig farm, and if the wind is just right, it is a terrible smell.

The original course in Maine, Beaver Brook Campground, has a couple holes that play near the leech field where they pump out the RV septic systems. So on holes 3 and 4 there's usually a fairly consistent stench, made better or worse depending only on wind direction. It's been a long time since I've been there so maybe it's changed but I doubt it.

For best smell, it's isn't a hole but the shop. Cranberry Valley at Ricker Hill Orchard has its disc golf shop in its bakery. Everything you buy there, including any disc that's been on the shelf for longer than a day, is imbued with the smells of apple cider donuts and other fruits and pastries. The smells don't carry on to the course, unless you are holding a disc or the scorecard under your nose as you play.

Eucalyptus smell in central CA (like GGP, SF) is always nice!

Mason Sports Park is one of the best 9holers around... too bad it shares a property line with a sewage treatment plant...


But the worst was a temporary situation at Idlewild. At an event I played there a few years ago, old Hole16(now 22 and is no17 for Idlewild Open) had a bloated dead deer right above the short basket location. It was so bad, I had to hold my towel over my face while I putted and still was gagging...

Yes! I remember that dead dear. Someone in my group had to throw their second shot from near it.

^It kinda feels wrong to nice that post, lol.


I guess the best smell would be one of the dozens of times I've played at Mt Airy while a group of picnickers was using the grills...

A tree by #13 basket/#14 tee at Mt Airy has this fruit that when it ripens and falls off it smells like dog poop.
