Note that registration is November 11. Last year the Am side filled in less than 90 minutes.
If you want a testament about the course, consider this: Registration for both events went online last night, and Discgolfunited's site immediately crashed. It took forever to get through and register. By the end of the night, 165 had registered for the Am weekend, with 50 more on the waiting list, and 97 had registered for the Pro weekend. Prices are high and payouts modest (due to the $20 greens fees), so it's the course, not the money, that caused such a frenzy.

That sounds amazing. I tried to change my schedule so I could make the event. I was unable to do so. My trip has changed a bit. Sounds like we will be driving in from Georgia. I'm waiting on some final details before I plan more. Thanks again for all of the great information. If all goes well I might be able to play the course before the event. If I'm lucky.

If you are coming down I-75, make certain to stop by Magnolia in Live Oak - maybe 2-3 miles out of your way.

Like I mentioned above, you with certainly not regret it....and it would break up your drive a little.

Ok. My plans have changed a bit. I'm solo. Friends can't make it down this time. I found a tournament http://www.pdga.com/tour/event/16498 near Tampa at Tocobaga DGC. If all goes well, I should be able to get in. I have a hotel about 10-15 min away so thats my base location. Flying straight into Tampa.

1) Tocobaga DGC
2) Cliff Stephens Park
3) North East Coachman Park
4) Edward Medard Park
5) Taylor Park
6) Picnic Island DGC
7) Bill Frederick Park - Turkey Lake
8) Ocala Greenway DGC
9) North Charlotte Regional Park
10) USF Riverfront Park

I think all of these are within reach. Please edit/add how you would approach it. My schedule will be non stop disc golf. If anyone is available to play, I would love to have some company. I'll consider driving a bit if necessary. Just PM me and I'll get some contact info out to you. Thanks much for all the great information. Also, I'm definitely going to hit up Clearwater Disc golf store at some point.

You've listed Bill Frederick Park - Turkey Lake....I assume you mean both courses there, which are Turkey Lake, and T2 Turkeynator. If not, consider.

if you're going to ocala for the greenway, you should do pine oaks as well. fairly close together and they are both good.

but overall, 10 days and youre not doing much besides playing?

I'd say do a loop of The Quarry, Floral Park, Whispering Pines. I'm planning on doing a similar loop in the next two weeks(although starting from the other side, I'm not in Tampa) So I can't vouch for those courses yet, although they are interesting enough that they've been on my to-do list for a long time.

my inlaws live less than a mile from the quarry, i played it once and now i don't play it when i'm there. i enjoy floral park- good variety in an open park setting with decent elevation for florida. i also enjoy whispering pines although it could use a bit of additional saw work. it is pretty much cut out of the jungle and is a good nature walk.
