Indiana's "#1" course is....interesting?

Only 11 reviews, though, so I expect it will come down to earth with some time.
Yes this one is an outlier on this list for sure. Prides Creek is in the middle of nowhere and it doesn't get much action. I doubt more reviews will be pouring in anytime soon so this ranking may stick for a while. I think it's a fine course and I reviewed it a slightly generous 4.0 last year. The 4.5s and 5.0s are definitely aggressive. Off the top of my head, I think Lemon Lake Gold, Buffalo Trace, Severin Lang, Hazel Landing offer a better experience.

Let's add Deis Hill in OH as another head-scratcher. Fun course and a few signature holes but there are more than a few lame open-field holes. Mt Airy has to be the true winner in OH.

Or, maybe the disc golf in IN and OH just sucks. (kinda kidding)

I believe only three of the courses on the list have been used in NT, Open Major or DGPT events: Idlewild, Smugglers and Iron Hill. I wonder if our reviewers would rate some of the temp courses used close to the level of these three courses besides USDGC layout which might be the top rated course in SC if it were permanent?

Honestly don't follow the Pro circuit closely. Seems a shame not to use the IDGC courses, and others like Maple Hill, etc as regular or semi-regular stops.

Kensington Toboggan was used for DGPT in 2018 & 2019... has a 4.68 rating over 30 reviews.


I did a browse courses, and selected Temp & Seasonal (unchecked Permanent) and set the ratings filter for 4.0 and higher. Got some interesting results, but most of them only have a handful of reviews (at best).

Some courses I've only heard stories about:
Gran Canyon, FL: 4.88 …4 reviews
The Crucible, TN: 4.75 … 2 reviews
Winthrop Gold, SC: 4.16 ...28 reviews


Didn't realize Bryant Lake Park was "seasonal."

My guess is that Winthrop Gold would not make it. Between the course length and the miles of manufactured OB, there'd be too many detractors among the range of course reviewers.

Gran Canyon in Florida (mentioned in Bogey's post) would be a candidate for that state's best course, if permanent.

Flyboy would take Georgia, if listed.

I'd add in Wilderness as probably better than Rollin' Ridge as well. Hell, maybe even Stoney Creek is better at this point.
I really have to get to Bryant Lake. I forgot about Wilderness. That is a great course. I agree it's right up there if not better than Rollin Ridge. Stoney Creek is vastly underrated imo. Justin Trail's Big Brother is another one. A bit rough around the edges but a beast of a course.

One of the Highbridge courses may regain the top spot in Wisconsin in another year or two.
