Default Craft breweries, disc golf, and good weather in March suggestions?

My brother and I are avid disc golfers and brewers, and we both live in cold climates. What are some suggestions for a late March/early April vacation that feature multiple good local breweries, a variety of solid disc golf courses, and warm weather? I was thinking maybe Ashville, NC, but didn't see many well reviewed courses there when I took a quick look at the map.

Anywhere in the U.S. should be possible for us.

Thanks for any help!

Go to Phoenix and stay in Tempe near ASU. Multiple good courses fairly close, plenty of breweries to choose from and pretty much guaranteed decent weather. Also, Spring Training baseball is going on. Try airbnb.com for a place to stay. I go every March. Sometimes for the Memorial Disc Golf tournament, always for baseball and beer.

My area of the country, central North Carolina, has lots of breweries, including Natty Greene's, PigPounder, Red Oak, NoDa. Charlotte is a mecca for disc golf. If you are in Greensboro, pay a visit to the Bestway, a supermarket, not a brewery, but generally regarded as having one of the best beer selections, including a ton of North Carolina beers, in the region. Maybe play The Patriot in Kernersville and Johnson Street Park in High Point or just concentrate on Charlotte, which has quite a few highly-regarded courses.

Winston-Salem, NC chiming in....Asheville over central NC IMO.

Great courses, good food/music scene, Sierra Nevada and New Belgium have destination breweries nearby. If beer and disc are what you're after, "Beer City" wins.

As I mentioned, I did a quick look for courses in the Ashville area, and only saw one that was highly rated. Can you pass along some courses to check out in that area?

Asheville is 2/2.5 hours west so have not played a ton of courses. Richmond Hill is a great challenging course, North Asheboro Park DGC is pretty awesome as well and that's about all I've played in town. Black Mountain is about a half hour down the hill and has a fun course I played when it was a nine hole course.

Forgot this was a disc golf forum for a moment and had beer goggles on, you might be better off with asromatifoso's reco if disc is the primary focus.

St. Louis is a pretty big area, but there are quite a good breweries and courses all around town. Jefferson Barracks and Wilmore are both pretty close to Perennial Artisan Ales. Both courses are great and Perennial is one of the best local breweries in town. There are lots of great courses up in north county and lots of great breweries all along Manchester Rd

OP said good weather. Anywhere from central California up through Washington in March is susceptible to a lot of rain still and not even that warm of temps.

I'd suggest Somewhere in the Southwest... Phoenix, maybe? It'll be dry, moderate temperature, and there is good golf.
