Most picturesque? Bucksnort
Beautiful and accessible? Flip City

Bucksnort is just amazing. Flip City just looks like disc golf should look.

Some other nominees:
Justin Trails Big Brother (WI)
Maple Hill (MA)
Jerry Miller DGC (OR)
Sabattus Eagle (ME)
Highbridge Hills (pick your course) (WI)
Beaver Ranch (CO)
Wildcat Bluff (IA)

I'm sure there are a few others I'm just not thinking of right now....

Never played it myself but Flyboy looks pretty amazing on the holes around the lake.

It is one of the prettiest non-mountain courses I've played. It's not just the lake. The section of the course below the lake is in a beautiful, hilly hardwood forest. The section above it has lots of manicured fairways---they're grass taxiways for the airplanes---lined by woods or beautiful homes.

It's hard for a non-mountain course to compete on scenery, though.

It's a bit disconcerting how often I agree with him.

So true. Obviously you have to most of the credit to mother nature, but...

Bill deserves quite a bit himself for figuring out where to place tees & baskets to create scenic fairways that are inviting. Not to mention all the mowing he does to create clearly defined fairways. Maybe it's just the disc golfer in me,
but the paths he cuts into the rough also add a little something.

Whether it's a tunnel of dense trees, thick walls of brushy shrubs, or simply nicely manicured grass flanked with much taller grass that defines the rough... there's just something about crisp, clean lines that scream, "Here's your fairway" I find visually appealing. They simply make tees more inviting.

I'm also a big fan of winding creeks (shout out to Harmony Bends and The Canyons in Joliette).

I also love valley/gully/ravine fairways.... something else Flip has a few of. While it's not in the same league, the ravine holes at Highland Park in Joliette are the most visually striking holes on the course IMO.

When it's freshly mowed, the Toboggan is one of my favorite courses to just look at. All those elevated tees, rolling terrain, and loong sweeping fairways are very picturesque.

Bucksnort for most scenic but the golf was gimmicky at times. Maple Hill in late October is stunningly gorgeous.

Three peaks in Utah is gorgeous, being from Kansas City, it is unlike anything i’ve ever played.

Cool and accessible waterworks here is a favorite.

There is a private course in Utah near Moab that looks amazing too. Can't recall the name, but it's along the CO river and it is basically like playing disc golf in Arches NP.

Have to say the picture from WA above has to be the winner on most Scenic. I have played some CO mountain courses, but that view is something else!
