Lobdell Reserve outside of Columbus OH should fit this definition well.

I have not been to Hawk Hollow or lake Marshall yet but agree with you on Timber Ridge.

Oddly, one of my favorite courses in this area, Rockness Monster is also pretty serene. At least until I start playing, then tree thunks and cursing can be heard for miles.

Just played this course for the first time on Saturday. Incredibly cool spot for spinning. One day - in the fall! - I'll camp for the weekend and play until the wheels fall off...

Very fun, and "serene" is a perfect description of the place...if not my mental state during the round. Tough to stay calm and carry on when one is pushing through the undergrowth trying to find a disc and a line to the basket.

(Just realized my last post could be understood to mean either of the two courses Mr. Sauls mentioned. I was referring to Chester State Park.)

Sorry.

I wondered about the "camping" part. Now it makes sense.

Sunrise rounds in general are great ways to experience serenity, even in normally heavily congested areas. That being said, semi remote mountain courses dominate my serenity list.

The One I like is Erie State Park in New York for the Serenity. Yeah their is a road nearby but vehicles do not go on that so much as there is I-90 just south. The Last 2 holes right next to Lake Erie with the waves are the reason why as is one tunnel shot that is a driving putter ace run. Lots of chances to be right next to the animal nature on that course the way it plays.

Another is play Angostura Disc Golf Course in Angostura State Park South Dakota. I have only played the course when it had posts in the final spots where the baskets were going to go in the next year but the views from a hill where one of the baskets is now and looking down on Angostura Lake is something else especially if you got to play the course at the right time of day. Course has the older Discatcher Pro with 24 chains from Innova, the newer 28 chain baskets were not out yet.
this is the basket overlooking the lake I am taking about.

Just forgot Cape Henlopen State Park in Delaware was really nice if not playing during the middle of the day. was really cool playing right next to the ocean on a sandy course. Also something about playing a course that Steady Ed did the original design for.
