Somewhere along the way I think this thread got way off track. Is that the new theme of this place because it seems to happen a lot. And all the threads go back to the same random inside joke, which is absolutely hillarious if you ask me.

Socks!

On another note, how in the world did California get left off the voting list. I don't think it is the best but it has to be up there.

I have no basis of comparison, having only played DG in North Carolina. But, is there any other CITY in the world that has 10 DG courses other than Charlotte, NC? And...there are another 6 courses within 20 miles of driving, including the Winthrop courses in SC. I know the poll is about STATE, but as far as city is concerned, Charlotte and the surrounding areas may be where its at.

I'd like to correct my last post, there are 12 courses(not in Charlotte), that are within 20 miles driving distance from city limits. If I could play a round per hour and hit the next course, I could play a round on a different course(round time and drive time included) for almost 36 hours straight, and still never be more than 45 minutes away from home.

I wasn't going to vote in this poll just like I didn't vote in the last one because I've only played disc golf in three different states. But you convinced me otherwise and I put in my biased vote for my home state.

I used the "Courses Near Me" function of this website and punched in a zip code for Charlotte and the 3 big Texas disc golf cities and set the limit for 25 miles from that zip code and here's the results:

Charlotte - 21 courses

Austin - 28 courses

Dallas - 32 courses

Houston - 23 courses

So yeah, I'd say there are some cities that can compete with Charlotte.

Yeah but I still think Carlotte wins in quality of courses. I could be wrong about that but I think I heard someone say that once. Where is that thread where the guy did the super detailed analysis?

Ok, time to stop making stuff up You start with quantity then when that's wrong you switch it to quality. Now whacha gonna do?

I averaged the Charlotte area courses vs. the Austin area courses and as far as averages go, it wasn't really that close. I didn't bother with the other Texas cities cause it's mildly time consuming to punch the scores into a calculator.

Charlotte - 2.67

Austin - 3.19

Of course this is nothing definitive, but judging by the fairly large gap between the two, it's pretty hard to argue against.

Ok, curiosity got the best of me.

Dallas - 2.97

Houston - 2.48

So Charlotte beat Houston, but not Dallas or Austin as far as quality. Although, I would like to play some NC courses as I'm sure there would be some pretty awesome terrain and I love elevation changes.
