Default Milwaukee to Nashville and back

First time poster looking for some course suggestions for courses going from Milwaukee to Nashville to Smoky Mountain National Park. I'll be heading out August 9th and I will have about 4-6 days to do some discing on my way there and back. I was thinking about doing a loop if there are "must-play" courses along the way. Thanks!

Just a quick search, but Lemon Lake's complex would be a good stop, as well as Idlewild and Lincoln Ridge on the way back

What kind of courses do you prefer to play? What skill level are you? I'm guessing you're coming through Chicago, Indy, and Cincy and continuing south from there? Are you looking for one course on the way, or are you going to bag a couple at each stop?

Played and camped a few epic well maintained wooded and bomber courses while camping in southeast Indiana / Hoosier state forest area last month. Buffalo Trace campground and course was a great stop for two nights while playing the area.

I would call my self an advanced recreation player, maybe? Slowly-but-surely I'm getting better. I can max-out in the 350'-400' range, although not always accurate with my power throws. I'm open to courses of any skill level. My home course (Brown Deer Park) is a bomber course, but also pretty technical.

I'm hoping to hit as many courses as I can fit in over three days. On the way down, I plan on taking I-65, but I would also consider the I-57 or US-41 routes. I'm open to alternate routes along the way, as long as they don't stray too far off the path (an hour or two). For the return home, I'm going to go through Cincy (I've heard good things).

Camp Cullom is a damn fun spin, north of Indy.

Lemon Lake's looks like it would be a great first stop! I've been told Idlewild is a "must-play" by a couple locals, so I'm definitely stopping there on the way back. Looks like I'll have to check out Lincoln Ridge too, since it's so close.

I had heard that there was a pretty cool Eagle Scout course in Indiana and now I have a name. Thanks for the suggestion, I'm definitely making a stop there!

Idlewild is a masterpiece yet difficult in places, Lincoln Ridge is very good and more fun. Also, consider Mt Airy in nearby Cincinnati. With 4 courses you could spend all day at Lemon Lake.

Going down I-65, you will go right through Bowling Green. If you haven't ever played here and would want a couple rounds, I would suggest Kereiakes park and Lover's Lane. I would normally suggest the Technical College since it is probably the most challenging course but it is currently under construction and 3 of the holes are out of commission... still not sure what the plan is there
