Retire to wherever you'd want to if disc golf wasn't considered.
Then build a course you like with all your free time.

That's what we've done for 7.5 years. North or up into the mountains in the summer, back south in the winter. Hitting DG courses along the way...

Clearwater Florida.

Large number of great courses and no income tax. Also, real golf is not that expensive in that part of Florida. Warm weather year round. I visit the area almost every winter.

That's what I was thinking.....some pretty good disc golf in the Tampa area, and Orlando, without a lot of hills. And if you miss hills, you'll be there when the Canyon makes its annual appearance, plus, being retired, you can play during the weekday practice times.

And, obviously, there's something about Florida that's attractive to a lot of retirees.

....I'm not assuming a retiree is in such bad shape as to avoid hills. But in another 10 or 20 years, he might be.

WI in the summer, somewhere with no income tax (and warm) during the winter.

Places like Grand Rapids could appeal if the climate was better too.

Seems like a few good spots in TX?
I would say no to GR. Golf isn't very good, weather is crap much of the year.

Agreed on the weather, but I liked the courses. Different strokes though.

Default Tampa Bay Area

No state income tax, warmth (in spades), solid DG course selection on both sides of Tampa Bay as well as to the south in Bradenton/Sarasota.
