It was originally supposed to be before Nockamixon, which was on our way to new jersey that day, but we chose the Phillies game instead because it was a new to me baseball stadium. It's so hard to plan a trip around there!!! If the tournament was at Jordan and not French Creek then that would be better, but French Creek is still a helluva course in it's own right.

Can you take out 'greatest' and 'ever' from the title?

We've been visited by a lot of travelers on long trips, stopping by on their way between bagging Augusta/IDGC and Charlotte. I'm sure many of those trips would rate high on a list of Best Disc Golf Trips.

Though it's made me lament that nobody ever visits Stoney Hill during their Tour of Crappy Courses in the Southeast. We'd really stand out to them, if they did!

Ben Calhoun played about 700 courses in a year, in his race to 1000, and I'll bet some of his trips were pretty epic. Or, for all I know, it might have been one massive trip. Not sure how much he remembers of them, though.

I did some pretty epic trips a while back. A couple were around 3 months long and included around 300 courses..

Possibly Lake Claiborne SP - Whitetail before heading over to Hot Springs for Turkey day. Then back home.
Hi Jason-

If you are traveling between Hot Springs, AR and Illinois, I would suggest spending a day at Disc Side of Heaven in Jonesboro, AR. Both courses are in fantastic shape right now. You would hit the #1 rated courses in four states in one trip... that is a heck of a road trip!

Feel free to e-mail me at DiscSideofHeaven@gmail.com to work out some details if you can make it work.

Brad

Best trip ever was a vacation with other things in DC but I got to play Cape Henalope state park in Delaware and for a course made in the 1980's it was still a tough course. They changed where the cool weighted wooden dock top with a rubber pad attached to the tee pads were. Cool since Steady Ed Designed the Course and still had the original Mach II from the 1980's at it.

Another time I played while coming back from vacation at the Lake Shore park in Ashtabula State park. This was after I Played Chainbiters a pay to play in South Datyton New York.

Recently I got to stay at Erie State Park that has Shipwreck Bluff disc golf course, one of the tougher short courses I have played as the rough is nearly unplayable.

Played one time when we were going to South Dakota Black hills for a weekend the old Omaha Park in Rapid City South Dakota, one of the oldest permanent courses with baskets Outside of California or NY made in 1979 with the same big homemade baskets at the time in 2004. After getting new discs sold at a Play it Again Sports for my dad we played the course. I think my mom did not want to play yet or had just a 1999 Classic grid Aviar, the one with the micro bead and a late 1990's style Stratus to play my brother had used and got from a Cousin in 2003 who was getting ready to retire those discs or had better discs, different Putter namely I think Cousin had a soft Rhyno at the time.

For my 50th Birthday, back in May, I did The Rock at Stonewall, Rolling Pines, BlackJack, Sugaree, The Spine, and Ashe County Park, all in a 4 day North Carolina road trip. I’m still wiped out!

Thanks for the suggestions Brad!

We wound up only playing 4 rounds due to weather, time constraints and a sick kid when we woke up at The Corral House at Selah Ranch the morning of Thanksgiving.

Added the following to my list on the trip:
Selah Ranch Creekside
The Lodge Moccasin Course
Harmony Bends
Rosedale (top)

Almost got half the states played, sitting at 24.
