Default What is the most beautiful/scenic course you have played?

Main Question:
What is the most beautiful/scenic course you have played?

Other Thoughts:
If you wanted to introduce a nondiscer to the game and needed a course that would convey the beauty of the game; what course would you take them to?
This doesn't need to be the most beautiful and most difficult. In fact, I'm more interested in beauty and overall vibe than challenge.
Most people who haven't tried DG, can't understand why those who have are so obsessed. Where would you take the doubters to show them the light?

Hmm... That is a good question. Of the courses I have played I would put Ashe County Park in Jefferson, NC and Jackson Hole Mtn. Resort DGC in Jackson Hole, WY.

Ashe County is a great looking course and a challenging course.


Jackson Hole has views of the Tetons and lots of wildlife but a fairly dull course.

I havn't played any outside of Texas, but I really like Bryan McClain Park in San Antonio. I also enjoy Gulf Meadows in Jack Brooks Park in Hitchcock, TX.

You're in Chicago, a camping trip up to HighBridge for the weekend should fit the bill.

$45 for the weekend.

Richmond Hill in Asheville, NC is beautiful. Also, Riverview Park in Augusta, GA has a stellar view of the Savannah River.

It's nothing breathtaking, but Roland Park in Lancaster, PA, boasts scenic views of rolling hills of Amish farmland.


For a beautiful game, I vote Deer Lakes as the holes are generally very well-designed in terms of birdie/par/bogey and can be tough but not insurmountably so...all in all, a rewarding and addicting experience. Plus, it has a great PA woodlands feel with mature hardwoods and aesthetically pleasing elevation changes.

I've never play there, but Flip City in Shelby MI looks gorgeous. As far as courses I have played, both Idlewild and Mt. Airy are pleasing to the eyes. Both are within 30 minutes of Cincinnati as well.
