Scott Family Disc Golf Favorite Courses!

With so many wonderful courses that we have had the priviledge to play, it is tough to choose our favorites.

Family Friendly

Elon (Eager Beaver) - How can Elon make both the Family Friendly and the Challenge list? Two very different courses.

Bailey - We had a great time at the original 9-hole version, but the new 18-hole is great family fun.

Fewell - A putt&approach course that is great for the kids.

Beatty's Ford - A 9-hole course on a beautiful lakefront piece of property that is hard to stop playing once you're there.

Local Challenge

Rennaissance Gold - Forget scoring well... your goal is usually survival on this beast!

Elon (Angry Beaver) - A relatively tame opening 3 holes disguises the pain to follow. Accuracy over length helps lessen the blood loss.

Nevin Nightmare - As if Nevin normal isn't difficult enough, the Nightmare layout certainly lives up to its name, being both heavily wooded with narrow corridors and having multiple turns on many holes.

Charlotte's Web - Although Hornet's Nest isn't an easy course itself, "The Web" offers an even greater course challenge at the same park.

Winthrop Gold - Home of the US Disc Golf Championship, I've seen players score more on hole#13 than they would on some 9-hole courses!


Cornwallis - This is where Bob learned disc golf in the late 80s and taught Debbie in the mid 90's. We still love this course.

UNC - Go Heels! When we first played here, it was called Carolina Adventures and had marked poles for baskets.

Anderson - How can a course built last year be a source of Nostalga for us? Debbie & I frequented this park when living in Carrboro and always hoped they'd put a course here one day.

Once Played

Cliff Stevens - We only got to play this course once while in Clearwater/Tampa area for a training course years ago, but it is still among our favorites ever.

Longley - A bit of a surprise in that we didn't plan to stop at this course to begin with, then further surprised that it was our favorite played on our Wisconsin trip.

Middle Creek - The 4th of 8 courses in one day (with a 115 degree heat index) doesn't make ideal playing conditions, but we know this is a fabulous course that we will play again one day.

Best of the Best

Va-Du-Mar - Bob scheduled an Ace Race event largely because it gave him an excuse to try this course afterwards. The whole family also got to play here twice, once during the SC Jr championships.

Flyboys Aviation - Currently the highest rated course on for good reason. We also had the priviledge of playing a temporary shorter course on the same property.
