Thanks. I had no idea you could do that. Well I'm at 71.7% for WI apparently. About what I thought I was at. I find it hard to believe there's over 100 left I haven't played lol.

Michigan is also over 300 in 5th place
TX, WI, CA, MN, MI


i was curious if CA could compete with Texas if you included extinct and private courses

if you look at the complete-o-meter
TX 460 v. CA 333

but if you do a course search and include extinct courses
TX 593 v. CA 441


i don't think either state has a huge number of unlisted private courses. certainly not like the Carolinas or the upper Midwest. i wonder if WI, MN, or MI could get close to TX if you could get accurate numbers on that

I once got to 12 courses on DGCR in WI that I hadn't played. I seriously took like 5 weekend roadtrips to the NW part of the state. I contacted private courses, some unlisted courses, and did everything I could to get to zero unplayed. It was impossible because many of the listed courses actually don't allow public play . . . even if you ask nicely. I did use my "search for 1000 courses played" as a way into a few properties because they thought it was cool to have someone who plays so many courses play theirs. I also promised to give design critiques and provide input to a few others.

This was around 4 or 5 years ago I believe. I am now back up to 55 unplayed including temporary and practice areas. It was a fun goal to go after but I honestly don't believe anyone will be able to get to 100% because there are always unknown private courses, private properties that don't allow the public (some listed some not), and with 10-20 courses a year (and going up I imagine) going in all over the state, it is very difficult to accomplish. You really need to be dedicated to it and the cost of travel!

I still have the whole Northwest part of the state, that's probably the majority for me. I'd like to get a trip up there in the fall if possible. You're right though, with 10 or so new ones popping up each year, in all different parts of the state, it's nearly impossible. I literally live smack dab in the middle so I got that going for me. Even 90% would be pretty awesome.

I have played All the then 6 State Disc Golf courses of South Dakota in a State Disc Golf Tournament that finished at the time in the newest State park, and have also played Tutthil park, as well as one at a School for an Ace Race near Rapid City, my local in town course that I was with my dad and brother friend when the friend and dad did most of the design, , one in Mitchel South Dakota, the one at Black Hills State, and the oldest from 1979 at Omaha park in Rapid City but back when it was still the old baskets and not the best of the old Mach III from Jakson park that I played as well, and last Angostura but before it had baskets and was using posts in 2009 that I have also played.

That makes 14 for South Dakota.

I hit 200 Texas courses. I am pretty sure that Pizza God is the only other member on here with that same amount (and no one will ever pass him)

Great job BraveThrower43! Well done! You've put in some miles to play so many NC courses.

Personally, I think it is most fair to count only Permanent + Seasonal + Practice Areas (not Temporary) to get the number of courses in a state. Of course, any extinct courses you’ve bagged will add more to a person's total so that people can actually go over 100% completion. With these parameters SC has 125 courses.
DiscGolf Craig currently has 114 in SC, with 8 Extinct in his total, so 106 for current courses. So he is only 19 short of 100% for SC. That is within reach! He's rather preoccupied with more important matters for the next few months, but I'm pulling for him to reach this milestone.

Pretty sure I was 100% in Maryland in 1980, when Calvert Road was the only course.

We played it with Wham-O Frisbees.

Having reached 100% once I intend to rest on my laurels.
