disc golf pilgrimage
« on: February 12, 2009, 11:48:31 AM »
What up KC. Soup here. I'm down here in Cocoa Beach, FL and I'm gonna make a pilgrimage back to KC hitting as many of the top notch courses as possible. I will be coming up I-95 to Augusta to hit the IDGC and then on through Atlanta, Chattanooga, Nashville, I-20, I-75, I-24, I-64, I-70. Looking for advice on "must see" courses and other attractions along with cheap places to crash for about 6 hours.
Post here or send to my email jcampbellmortgages@yahoo.com
Thanks,
Soup

If you're coming across I-70 the St Louis and Columbia, MO are must stops.

There is also a newer course in Marshall,MO (about 90 minutes east of KC that's worth playing)

Both Columbia courses are fine, Oakland is liked by more folks, Indian Hills can be hazerdous)

Even though I'm from St Louis is have not played there, seems like everytime we go to visit family
takes prioity over disc golf!

Yo Jeff, hey to Mikey for me. 

On I-24 in Murfreesboro I recommend this course:

http://www.pdga.com/course-details?id=1187

It's kinda bland for the first part of the course but there are some very cool holes in the woods, one has the basket planted in solid rock, and it's a really nice park.

Also, in Atlanta, or just outside Atlanta I guess, I recommend Rosewood-Dekalb @ Redan Park:

If you're heading through Memphis, there are some nice wooded courses their worth checking out.  I played 2 of the Shelby Forest courses while I was there.  I didn't get to play the private course there because it was underwater due to the flooding this past year, but it's supposed to be pretty spectacular.  It's called Bud Hill.

You can check out info here: http://memphisdiscgolf.com/07/

Also worth considering are alternate routes to KC. You can go through Memphis, travel to Little Rock (2 courses in Burns Park), go to Russleville (haven't played it), drop down to Hot Springs for a Houck designed wooded adventure, then head up to Alma/Ft Smith, then up through Northwest Arkansas (Northshore in Fayetteville got very damaged by the ice storm that hit recently, but Bella Vista is pretty unscathed), then up through Joplin.  If you want to take a small day detour, it's always worth heading over to Tulsa if you've never played there.  Or drive into the Ozarks for a nice camping trip at the breathtaking Horseshoe Canyon.

I did Burns Park in Arkansas on the way down a few months ago. Great park. Stayed with Brucey. The next day my alternator went out on "bloody 98" in Wilmer, Alabama. What a nightmare. I wish there was some way to post pics of my travels on here. I don't blog. Tomorrow I'm going spear fishing/diving about an hour out in the Atlantic.

Yes, swope 10am is easily the rudest golf anyone can experience. When the group gets to about 20+ it's not hard to down a beer per hole. I'm having problems now relearning etiquette.
