I eclipsed 100+ courses played in Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina all on this trip, as well as 2,200+ total. I also played really well, averaging -7.69 per 18 holes (I typically am around -6 when traveling and playing new courses blind).

I've played courses 42-43, picking up my disc from the 9th basket Glenburnie was a 5.0 for me, #8 a favorite hole. Started backsliding on the B9 settling on a 4.0 overall. Barnet Park #1 long to long one of my favorite starting holes wooded with a creek crossing. A few good, wooded holes at Creekside.

I would agree with this assessment. The front 9 at Glenburnie is REALLY beautiful. I would probably have it as a 4.5 because it still lacks some distance/par plus the signature hole 8 is a bit of a tweener distance and the long tee plays over the top of hole 7-- just some minor things but making it not really a 5 for me. The back 9 is definitely lackluster comparatively, bringing the overall rating down to a 4.0 as you stated. I mean it's still fine... just nothing really special. That would be a great course to live near and be able to play it all the time.

I was a little disappointed with Barnet. The signage was poor. The maintenance was not great. The tee areas, especially for the long tees, were inconsistent. I actually tried to play the long>long but gave up after 3 holes and restarted on short>short once I realized it was going to be difficult to know where the long baskets were or how long the holes were due to the poor signage along with the maintenance being poor for throwing longer, more difficult shots (hole 2 was the main offender here). Once I got to hole 4 and saw that the long tee was a natural, unmarked tee I had had enough of trying that and just did short>short (which wasn't challenging enough to be fun... especially on the back) just to get through it.

What won me over giving Glenburnie F9 a 5.0 was the wispy Spanish Moss lingering from the branches. I can still remember my Yellow Star Wraith on #4 flying towards the moss thinking it would disrupt the disc, but instead it parted thru the moss, and the moss closed behind the disc like a veil, not losing any distance. It was awesome and beautiful to see and happened a few more times on the F9, not present on the B9. Only course I've played with Spanish Moss.

I played Barnet Park early 2022 and the handful of long baskets were newly placed, not expected and I was pleasantly surprised to see the long basket getting ready to putt short basket #1, saw the long basket and put the putter back in the bag and pulled out whatever disc to play it. UDisc had the other long baskets mapped. Only saw two sets of concrete tees, I played long. I just looked at UDisc, it looks like they've stretched the course since I've played it, and there calling those dirt tees Orange, it would seem likely they'll eventually poor concrete and it looks like they may of laid rubber mats since you played it last month. Enjoyed browsing those courses you played last month!

Yeah, like I said, Glenburnie was REALLY beautiful. Being from Louisiana, I am a little more familiar with the moss. There are some really good ones in Louisiana and Florida. You should check out Parc des Familles south of New Orleans. Lake Bistineau in north LA is another one with fantastic moss.

You're probably right. Barnet is likely just going through some transformation.
 
It looks like you had an incredible disc golf adventure, playing 51 courses across Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina in just a few weeks!
