Haven't thrown outside the midwest, but there a couple of gems. Standing Rocks (N. Central Wisconsin), Bryant lake (west of twin cities and the most manicured course I've witnessed) and Water Works here in KC (gorgeous backdrop of the city on many holes). Want to make it to both the NE and NW for some courses. They look gorgeous on tourney videos and pics from DGCR.

Independence Lake, it's located just off of Whitmore Lake in Michigan, and its a beautiful 18 hole course that they just added a bonus 9 to. Plenty of wide open holes with lots of elevation changes, but it also gives you some very technical wooded holes as well to play. Definitely a solid course to hone your game.

If I could, I'd bring every new player to Horning's Hideout and play the Valley course...and then go play Meadow ridge by myself.

The whole property is amazing and the woods are beautiful.

Tough to pick just one, but I'd have to say Selah Lakeside. The combination of the lake and trees is stunning. I'd imagine Maple Hill is pretty similar but also has the changing leaves there so I'm sure it has some amazing views.

Honorable mentions:

Sugaree
Deer Lakes in the fall
Richmond Hill has some beautiful holes
Waterworks

-Raw Beauty , bohart ranch. Rugged, long, short, big sky country at its finest. not to mention you might get mauled by a cougar adds to the elements.

-Subtle Beauty, flip city. Something about playing up in Northern Michigan when it is blistering hot in the lower midwest just makes most courses up their perhaps more beautiful weather wise. And if you happen to get the timing right when the leaves peak...oh my god... it is just like heaven.

-Not sure what Mt.Airy would fall under but it is a gorgeous course in a large forest tucked smack dab in the middle of Cincinnati, so I guess it would be the most unique type of beautiful course.

...and more poison Ivy than you can shake ten sticks at.

FYI Between Red Hawk Original and Red Hawk X, the facility now offers 36 holes total. I recently updated the Original map to show the twelve new holes (X1-X12), which when played with holes A-F, comprise the Red Hawk X course. Original course has 18 Orange Mach III's. X Course has regular Chainstars.

Ashe County is beautiful. As well as Rolling Pines in Wilkesboro, and Jackson Park in Hendersonville.

Of the very limited courses I've been to, all in Texas and Louisiana... Lake Claiborne State Park Whitetail was the most beautiful last fall. I'd like to go there for the park without disc golf. The fact that there's a truly great course (Whitetail) and another very good course (Dogwood) on site. Nice cabins in a peaceful and beautiful setting with wildlife everywhere... (no cell phone reception... no work).

It was the best vacation spot I've ever been to. No stress.

Rolling Pines would be next on my list behind the two properties I listed. It feels like a dream playing out there.
