Default What are the must play courses in the Portland area???

Heading up to Portland for a three day road trip and I want to make sure I play the right courses. I am not going to be able to hit up Horning's which is disappointing, but I am hoping to hit up some of the other PDX gems. What should I play??

Plus Dabney might just miss the "must play" list, but is a really fun course as well.

I would also consider Stub Stewart a must play, but it's even farther out than Horning's so I would assume you can't make it out there either.

Milo McIver is the best course in the area not at Hornings. Pier Park is regarded very highly, though I find it less compelling than most people seem to. Dabney is a good time.

All that said: I would rather play just Hornings than all of the others combined. Hornings is as much of a Mecca as exists for Disc Golf as far as I am concerned.

Also Timber Park is just across the river from Milo. I wouldn't call it a must play, but you are there already.

Just got back from Portland/Gorge trip. We played Pier, Hornings and Milo. All were excellent.

Heard good things about Blue Lake and Dabney as well.
