All about personal preference. I LOVE Winter Park, but a lot of people don't. And that's ok.

Winter Park is under some restrictions as to what can be done there. It's a decent course design wise and I don't mind the rutted out natural tees or anything of that sort. Kind of think saying it's over hyped is too critical... But that's me and amenities and perfectly groomed holes were never that important.

^This. I thought Water Works was wonderful. Almost gave it a 4.5, but it's a destination course for sure...at least IMO. Obviously not everyone feels that way. Yet most seem to like it even more than I do.

I go to them because they are near where I am staying.

For me, it’s about “the feelings I get” when I am somewhere extraordinary. When I get done with a round at my favorite courses, I FEEL CONTENT. I FEEL LIKE ALL IS EXACTLY RIGHT IN MY WORLD. I literally feel like I am closer to God! I know that will sound corny, but FOR ME, There are courses that HEAL ME. It’s largely natural beauty that does it to me. For me, it is SPIRITUAL.

I am in North Carolina. I live for our mountain courses. How can one be anything less than fully alive, when doing what they love, where they love, sharing an experience they probably will not find anywhere else in their lives?

I rate courses with my heart. And if that makes me weird, or less of a true disc golfer, well, good for me, I am okay with that.

I agree totally... Especially the spiritual part. When a disc flies so well on a gorgeous line through woods and rock with a little stream bubbling nearby! That is like tickling gods nose with a feather and he/she has a little sneeze with no spittle...

Heh...

^ Would've said it differently myself, but echo the feeling.

Couldn’t say it better. My favorite disc golfing picture I’ve ever taken, is of my disc, in a Small babbling creek, Crystal clear water flowing over it. Hole 19, blackjack. My life would literally be incomplete without having seen this, heard this, felt this.

I can tell a course is a Destination Course by how much trouble I'm willing to go through to return and play it again some day.
