I'm getting more and more tempted to just say screw FLA and head straight East from Hobbs and spend a day or two at IDGC and Hippodrome.

I'd love me some 70 degrees right about now, but it seems like for that I'll have to get all the way down to Tampa....which would be awesome too, but IDGC...

Too many choices!

Less driving, more disc golf.

Yeah...don't get me wrong, I LOVE driving, but there just seems to be almost nothing in the entire lower half of GA, and only a couple of good-to-great courses in FLA north of like the Tampa/Orlando areas.

Updated -

Chattanooga, and Etowah 3/10
Hobb's Farm 3/11
IDGC 3/12
(Hopefully) Stoney Hill 3/13 (Hippodrome/other nearby courses if not)

The Hippodrome has been closed, not totally sure if it's open yet. Langley Pond is just up the road about 10 minutes from the Hippodrome and is much better than either of the courses there.

Augusta note: Langley Pond is a highlight (just across the border into SC). It was recently in the Top 10, and is still near it.

BUT.....I just saw on the Augusta Facebook page that holes 7-13 are closed, while some construction/repairs are made. They're expecting them to be open this weekend, but in some doubt as to whether the signs will be back up. It would be a little tricky to navigate, without signs.

If it's on your agenda, you might double-check with someone local before playing it.

Nice, thanks for these updates. It's only on the agenda if Stoney falls through, so hopefully I won't have to worry about it. Unless I want to try to pack the IDGC courses and Langley into one day...

But this trip I am going to try to focus on taking it slow and really enjoying every course I play to the fullest - a lot of my recent trips have been taken with a non-discer - this one is all about the frolf.

I've been thinking about what to play on the way back, and I think I am going to overshoot Madison and go out of my way to play Harmony Bends. It's about 12 hours from Mooresville, so I'll leave early Friday, play something along the way (probably around NSH - that's right about half way), play Harmony all day Saturday and then head home.

I always end up doing this though - I leave my friend's early in the morning and don't play anything in the Charlotte area before leaving. And since he doesn't play, I usually don't play while I am there. I've been there 3 times and have only played 1 course in the area. If only he was a discer....

That would be insane. Heck, the IDGC in one day is borderline.

Yeah, I could easily spend 2 days playing the IDGC courses, I'm sure. 1 day should be enough. I plan on being there basically sunrise to sundown.

Man, you picked a couple of miserable days to head south. It's Spring inside on my calendar, but Winter outside in the weather. Not your kind of winter, of course, but something close to our kind of winter.

Whatever the conditions tomorrow at Stoney Hill, it's sure to be an improvement over yesterday and today.
