Default Best States with Open Courses?

Hi,

I am relatively new to disc golf, about one year, and have come to realize I can throw extremely well drives in open fields. In the woods I do not do as well. Up where I am in Vermont, there are a ton of trees. I have about three holes on the two courses in my town that have no trees, and there is one other course close by that has zero, but it is much more open then the ones in my town. My main question is what areas of the US have many open courses where I could plan to move to once I get my college degree?

Thank you all!

Those types of courses tend to become quite boring after a short while.

Open courses tend to be windy courses, which may be less than ideal for dg than you think.

Just think of places with more open land, and fewer forests.

Does Antarctica still have that course? Not much vegetation there.

I would shoot for some of the bigger cities in the midwest with a crap ton of courses surrounding them. You should have quite a few wooded and open courses mixed together. Like someone else said, you may get bored of open courses after your game starts to improve more.

You should go on a disc golf road trip and try to bag as many courses as you can that don't have any trees at all. Most would be school courses that are around the track or baseball diamond or just an open field. After you have finished, you will probably be longing for your wooded local courses. Of course, maybe you were just born to play open courses and it's your destiny.

Lots of fun open courses in Florida, plus an endless summer.
