Got to meet Greg Hossfield, he played the SC Flying Discs Championships at my home course in Chapin SC, then the following week he played the Golden Corner Classic in Seneca <near Clemson>. One heck of a nice guy, and entertaining as well. At that point he was at + or - 980 courses played.

Played a GREAT game except one hole...wanting to say #14. Went OB twice on it and took a 7 first round. Second round, exact same hole was our CTP for our division. I placed it about 4 ft on my drive for a birdie. Ended up taking 2nd overall and lost by 3 strokes. Had I even taken par on that very hole, I would have won by 1 stroke. They gave out wooden disc trophies that were very nice. And the CTP prize that I did win on that hole was great. I got a champ. Excaliber, Champ Coyote that was dyed with a flame design<very cool>, and a mini driver that was dyed with the superman "s" on it.
I played that tourney & got 2nd place AGM. The trophies were awesome. I also won a CTP there & got a sweet champ Xcaliber with cool stamp. See pics:

Yeah, it's made of wood. I saw these on display at the beginning of the tourney. I figured they were 1st place trophies only. I was so stoked to get one. Overall it was a great tourney with a cool players pack:

I agree...the wooden trophies were awesome, the CTP prizes were as well, and the players pack was very well done. Thought it was one of the best tournaments so far in the SCDGO series this year. Was the first time that I had played the course <well other than the week or so before when my friends and I came up to practice before the tourney>. I also got the champ excaliber in the Firecracker fling color. Ended up giving it to the local club for a CTP prize, and the guy who won it can throw it a mile.
Hopefully they will continue to have tournaments there, and make it an annual event.

Default You MUST play this course which you do not have on your list.

I guess you might not have heard of the new badass course in Ashe County in northwest NC. It is a true Blue Ridge Mountain experience. You can check out the club web page at www.thehighcountrydiscgolfclub.com/ . You might be re-rating the top part of your list after you play this course. This course should be next on your agenda to go try out if you have not.

Went to the website and checked it out...looks and sounds awesome! Problem is I'm in SC near Columbia, so it's a pretty good hike up for me, and it's not on the way to my parents in Franklin, NC. But I have bookmarked it, may have to make it part of my Charlotte loop at some time. Great looking site!
