Default UltiWorld: About those disc golf Meccas...

https://discgolf.ultiworld.com/2017/...c-golf-meccas/

Ultiworld providing some statistics to a fairly opinionated subject. Interesting to see, even if they don't necessarily represent non-PDGA faction events at all.

Worthless article. Clearly mecca is between Charlotte and the Twin Cities. You cannot define mecca on a state level, it must be a specific metro.

Not worthless.

It's easier to identify potential metro areas that are major disc golf hubs when you identify the states they reside in. Plus, it's not like any of us reading these boards or ultiworld don't know what those metro areas are anyway.

It's pretty weak.

As if a state is one place, or state borders restrict players.

Charlotte (NC) and Augusta (GA) are right on the SC state line---but all their numbers to their respective states.

Or PDGA tournament play equals tournament play (see Southern Nationals or NEFA).

Or, for that matter, that Quantity makes a Mecca, not Quality.

The take away is that the Midwest is where it's at. Which we all already knew.

Because if a Muslim travels to Saudi Arabia in general it doesn't count as the Hajj. Mecca is a city, a specific place, not a region.

Mecca should define a cluster of great disc golf courses and everything that goes along with that in a small geographic area. Usually (but not always) that correlates around a metro area.

And we can debate boundaries all we want to, but one thing is for sure. State lines shouldn't be breaking such clusters up.
