I'll be giving it a 4.5 whenever I get around to doing that, but I need to rewrite my entire review since so much has changed.
I'd be interested in seeing an updated review. I'm going to try and play Canyons in the next 6 months.

I looked through my courses played and these were the 5 that stood out in my memory. Apparently I prefer long, hilly, & tightly wooded courses.

Idlewild (KY)
Flip City (MI)
Orange Crush (WV)
Bailey (CO)
Holler In the Hills (KY-R.I.P.)

1. Camp Canaan (Rock Hill, SC)
2. Hornet's Nest (CLT, NC)
3. Rolling Pines (Wilkesboro, NC)

In no particular order.

Oregon Park - Marietta, GA: I live a mile away and have played it hundreds of times. Its a solid course, nothing spectacular, but its where I learned the game and I have countless memories of different milestones as my game has improved. Wide open spaces for the dog to run.
Hobbs Farm - Carrollton, GA: Best course Ive played in Georgia by far. Diverse and challenging layout, meticulously maintained, all infrastructure like bridges, catwalks, signs, benches, teepads all top-notch. John Houck design.
Veterans Memorial Park - Bridgeport, CT: I get to play this very underrated course whenever I go to visit my parents. Mostly wooded with lots of variety and elevation changes. Its unexpected to find such a well-designed and maintained course in Bridgeport. And its in a beautiful old hardwood forest with lots of massive oaks, babbling creeks and jagged outcroppings of granite to navigate.
Perkerson Park - Atlanta: Huge city park in a sketchy part of town where some dedicated volunteers carved out a stellar course. Its massive, mostly wooded, with lots of variety and great use of elevation. The kind of course where youll throw everything in your bag.
Steady Ed Memorial - Appling, GA: Another well-designed and maintained, huge, diverse course, mostly wooded, with portions playing along a gorgeous lake. This is considered the fun course of the 3 at the IDGC, still really challenging but accessible for us mortals.

Honorable mention:
Sedgeley Woods - Philadelphia: One of the old Steady Ed designed courses from the 70s with a huge and active membership. Home course of my friend Jim who taught me the game. Mostly tight and technical, most holes on the shorter side but its been expanded to 27 holes. Might be the most unique course Ive played.
East Roswell Park - Roswell, GA: Just a fun little course that I enjoy playing some weekends. Some forgettable holes and some really tight & challenging ones.
Harmony Bends - Columbia, MO: Highest rated course on this site last I checked. It would probably make my top 5 if I could play it regularly. The day I was there, I did not bring my A game and got eaten alive. Playing this course under par would feel like an achievement.
Richmond Hill - Asheville, NC: Beautiful property up in the mountains. Crazy steep hills throughout but still a blast to play.
Disc Side of Heaven - Jonesboro, AR: Aptly named, as its one of the most stunningly beautiful places Ive ever seen. Its also insanely long and difficult and not a course I could play on the regular. But I was there on the Monday morning after the JBoro Open in perfect sunny weather without another soul around except Steve Dodge and crew cleaning up the tents and whatnot, and I felt privileged to be there just to take it all in and take a million pics.
