Default South Carolina Courses

Are there any South Carolina courses in development for 2014?

In the Columbia area there are some in the preliminary stages, but I doubt that will translate to baskets in the ground this year.

Why are there so few courses in South Carolina? It's the home of Innova East and the USDGC yet there are no new courses so far this year and only 107 total.

Georgia seems really low too with the PDGA headquarters and a much larger population. Is it just too hot? Too many snakes?

107 isn't bad, for such a small state.

OK, it's not great, either. The eastern two-thirds of the state are a disc golf wasteland, with few courses and just a scattering of good ones. The real growth is in the northwest corner.

But with Charlotte and Augusta right on our borders, we feel pretty rich, just with the proximity.

....I live with one foot in Columbia, and the other in the middle of nowhere.

Columbia has had a lot of trouble getting much traction. Which feels worse, being about midway between Charlotte & Augusta. Mitigated a little by the fact that the handful of good courses are all very different from each other, so within that small sample there's a good bit of variety.

For what it's worth, there are some new courses---but they're private, unlisted, and not open to the public.

And my middle of nowhere? Not a lot of courses, but the average quality is pretty good.

I exaggerate a little. There are a few good, even very good courses, and a few other courses. But they're spread thin, east of Columbia, compared with other places.

For such a small state there is a huge variety of types of courses. Also, Spartanburg Parks Dept has installed 4-5 courses in the last couple years. They have a lot of parks employees that play and good topography for it.

Spartanburg is really putting together something special...Greenville's got a couple of courses in development (Golden Grove and Dolly Cooper)

Yeah, that's what I meant by "the real growth is in the northwest corner" of the state. Spartanburg County, and some small town, governments have embraced disc golf, in a way that doesn't seem to have caught on elsewhere.
