You're pushing my civility, now. Barbeque, indeed.

North Carolina is more developed, more industrial, even in the rural areas, perhaps particularly in the rural areas. North Carolina's small towns look very different than South Carolina's small towns, which don't look much different than Georgia's except the latter have more town squares. North Carolina has Charlotte, a much bigger city than any in South Carolina. On the other hand, we have better beaches and coastal cities.

Then again, you have much better mountains, and the Mecklenburg County Parks Department. The latter alone is almost enough to make up for the barbeque.

oh we've been dumping ground for decades now. But now it's your turn Palmetto state.

I stand by my barbecue statement sir. I will further fan the flames in the pit and say that Eastern NC barbecue is the most superior form of barbecued pig on the planet!

All jokes aside Mr. Sauls, you are on the money in your assessment of the Carolinas and Georgia. NC is also different from Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee (maybe not TN as much). In my travels I've noticed how weird the old North State is in comparison to our neighbors. We did something wrong.

In fairness....South Carolina actually has 3 barbeque regions. In the northeast corner, it's pepper & vinegar, like eastern NC. There are 2 pockets of mustard-based sauce: the middle of the state (where I am), and around Charleston. Elsewhere, it tends to be tomato(ketchup) based.

My family was originally from Lake City in the northeast (Pee Dee) area, and for holidays my grandmother would make the hour+ drive and bring back a load of that Eastern-Carolina barbeque. I really miss it. Of course, one thing the mustard-based BBQ has going for it is the "WTH?????" expression from visitors.

Meanwhile, back on topic, you can draw a line through South Carolina, down I-77 to Columbia then I-20 to Augusta. Go more than 5 miles east or south of that line, and the disc golf is spread pretty thin, in quality and quantity. So for the rest of us, about 90 of our 107 courses are crammed into about a third of an already-small state, so the course density, and quality, seem pretty good.

To wit, notice the big blank stretches east of Columbia:

I actually prefer mustard based more than any other. Vinegar

Unfortunate side effect of having stuff. I would gladly give you the research triangle.

Ooh, you lost me there. Western style or bust. I'd much rather eat mustard style than East NC style.

Diamond Reviewers' comments tend to do that.

Looking at DGCR, it seems SC is doing better than West Virginia! At least in my part of the state... Maybe that's not saying much. I will be making it down to the Carolinas very soon. I look forward to examining the disc golf situation firsthand.

Maybe Winthrop Gold would be a good initiation into SC disc golf, after some time in Charlotte? And David, Stoney Hill is definitely on the wish list, I'm just busy with some other things right now. I need a bumper sticker that says "I'd rather be frolfing" or "I'd rather be driving a frisbee"
