I was planning a trip through that area when Coyote Trace shut down. I had to go with plan B, Holler in the Hills, which was amazing and sadly extinct a month after I played it. Holler is by far the best course I've played that is now extinct. The property it was on is probably the best disc golf terrain that I've come across.


Hole 17 basket to tee. You can't tell in the pic, but there is a 30' deep valley between the tee and basket.



Examples of some of the cool rock formations used in the course. The pics really don't do them any justice.

Holler in the Hills is the first course that comes to mind when I click on this thread.

I miss Bear Creek in Grapevine TX. Old school disc golf at its best. At least they reopened Lake Lewisville.

Another is C.Bickham Dickson Park in Shreveport, La. It wasn't the best course in the world, but it was fun to play (lots of ace runs) and the park used to be one of the most beautiful places to go. Floods have decimated it for all but hiking and fishing now.

I second those who mentioned Circle-R. Haven't been to Selah so I can't compare, but I loved every inch of that place. Fabulous.

C Bickham was the 1st new disc golf course for Shreveport in... pretty much ever. Ford, Highland and Clyde Fant were all existing frisbee golf courses that were later converted to Disc Golf. The city works has just ignored it even though the water level went down.

Well, perhaps a mention:

Are two of my Top-5 all-time. Until recently I considered the Canyon the best course I'd ever played.

Stonhenge, Nashville, TN is pretty high on my list, as well

Met a guy Sunday who had played Laurel Springs, which I just missed playing and is now about 15 years extinct.
Stonehenge was part of 2001 Am Worlds.

No one's prohibiting you from mentioning them. Please share.

Boylan Family Farm. Laurel Springs, N.C.

One of my all time favorites and I haven't played it
since the 90's.
