Default If you had to move, which state?

Since the best DG state poll was a bit flawed due to homestate bias, how about this. If you had to move from your home state where all your favorite local courses are and had to move to another state, solely for disc golf purposes, which state would you move to? Apologies if your state was omitted.

I live in Texas, so I guess I'm pretty well set - however if I had to moved based purely on disc golf - I'd go to Chicago. Granted Chicago has a fair number of courses, but I also have to consider that is centrally located in one of the most dense course areas in the country. I'm close to Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, and Northern Kentucky. You have enough courses (500+) within 5 hours of your home to last you a lifetime.

Nice idea srm, though I think you'd be disappointed if you wanted to play more often than just your out of town trips if you lived in Chicago. There are a ton of courses, but the vast majority of them are mediocre 9 hole courses set in flat city parks.

I would move to a state with drastically different courses. Here in CO most of the courses near Denver are sparsley wooded except the Beaver Ranch one... I would like to be in a state near courses with dense wooded courses.

I know some fan favorites probably had their bubbles burst but I looked at all those in the poll vs MA, NY, CO ,FL, GA, IN, OH, PA in terms of course rated 2-5, and 4-5 discs respectively to try and determine quantity and quality. CO missed out by the skin of their teeth, by the data they deserve to be in the poll more than KY and OR but I subjectively placed them out. Sorry.

Oh, and I voted OR.

If I have to choose between better disc golf opportunities and no more Southwest Lousiana cooking, I'm not moving. I will make sporadic ventures into Texas to play DG, but I always return.

If I'm going to live somewhere solely for the regional disc golf courses I wouldn't move out of Ohio. I have an A-tier tournament course literally across the street from me and a handful more quality courses within 30 minutes. But that being said my wife and I are in love with Northern California so that is the ultimate goal.
