Default States, Metros with the best DG Scene?

As much as I get around I have seen a lot of courses, but I have never seen anything quite like Austin TX. There are 11 4 disc or higher rated courses in the area, and at least 46 courses with in 50 miles of the city center. The Austin DG scene is fantastic. I would recommend it anyone wanting to take a DG Vaca!
What other Metros/States have a huge DG following like this?

Many come close, But... None. Austin is becoming even more special every year.

Central MA/Northern CT is becoming a hot spot.

I think Jason Southwick of Pyramids/Marshall St. even hinted that he may have another course in (very) early development.

I lived in Atlanta for 7 yrs and then it was ok, nothing like texas. I think land is more difficult to obtain in Atlanta. Since I moved they have added White Oak, Alexander and others so it might have picked up.

Sorry man, I live in the DFW area, and I will take Austin DG over here anytime. Some of our courses I think are over rated and dont even compare to Austin.

I live in Chicago and a lot of the courses are pretty bad here. Sooo many 9ers, going to an 18 hole plus course is a real nice treat for here. So to answer your question, not here lol. I'd imagine Disc Golf courses in California are a blast because of though an hour from the beach, desert, and mountains = awesome.

which ones in your opinion?
of the nine 4+ rated courses in DFW, i've only played four (lake park, harry myers, z-boaz and bear creek). i can see z-boaz and bear creek being called overrated.

i've only played a handful of austin courses and of the ten 4+ courses, only pease and slaughter creek. i didn't think those 2 were any significantly better than DFW courses. the topography is a bit more interesting perhaps.



another thing to consider is whether to even count the wimberley courses since they are not open courses. plus some of the course within distance of austin are actually in san antonio. does that count?

and 21 of austin's courses have <18 holes. only 16 in DFW.

In the southeast us, it would have to be Charlotte, NC. and also Augusta Ga. No, there are not 45 or so courses, but there are still several top caliber courses all within a 30 min or so drive time.
Augusta:
3 courses at IDGC....Warner, Hedrick,Jackson
Riverview
Patriots Park
Pendleton King
Hippodrome
Lk. Olmstead
