imo quality trumps quantity- number of courses/holes is a red herring.

*minimum 5 reviews


Submit other areas (or better zips) if you like.
Can't wait for the 3 new courses that will open this spring to be reviewed. What is the radius that you use to determine which courses are attached to those cities?

NM looks like 25 miles.

You're forgetting the new course in G-Town.

I can't believe Michigan doesn't get more love on this site! There are an amazing # of great courses around the state.

Maybe not the best scene, but Los Angeles really has something going. I have not traveled very much to play so I can't compare, but I can tell you what we have:

-The ability to play all year round
-Weekly's every weekday
-Monthly's every weekend
-Regular night events (lama, xmas at og)
-PDGA stuff multiple times a year
-Flat park courses
-Hilly park courses
-Mountain courses
-Courses at the beach
-Courses in the desert
-Courses in the city
-Open courses
-Highly technical courses
-Pro's who give lessons
-Two actual physical DG exclusive stores
-A couple of active, local clubs
-The most active DGCR weekly meet up forum. PERIOD!

I could care less about your 'radius' requirements because LA surpasses every radius in the country.
The 'quality' rating out here is different because of the 'California Curve' previously discussed here. We have to get on airplanes to see what is on the east coast, therefore most of our ratings are relative to what we have here, putting some of our better courses in the mid 3's. If Oak Grove was in Michigan everybody there would probably be rating it 4.5 or above just because thats what they do.

Anyway in conclusion, we have an upbeat and supportive scene. Courses have their own followings and there are a couple of regional clubs as well. From our northernmost 'local' course (Valencia?) to our southernmost (Deerfield?), its a 2 hour drive. In between that, we have some serious variety. Oh, and all of our courses have baskets for whatever that is worth.

We also have the highest percentage of ladies and non-whites playing (totally made up statistic). So there.

Obviously, you haven't encountered any Flip City Disciples yet.

I agree that there's a pretty good dg scene in LA, but this part of your post I totally disagree with. Oak Grove is nowhere near most of the 4.5 rated midwest courses I've played, in fact the LA courses I've played have generally been overrated. You have pitch n putt 9 holers with major safety issues rated 2.5 that are nowhere near average, and you have good courses that are rated as great. The California Curve works the opposite way of what you're implying imo.
