    easy on the eyes

    Playing to improve and concentrating on my golf game I had not recently been paying attention to one of the major factors that got me hooked on this game. This is the beauty of some of the courses we are so lucky to find ourselves surrounded by from time to time. The landscape around the course can be much more enjoyable than the course itself.

    What is the most beautiful piece of land you have been able to play golf on.

    My vote is for NAD. I grew up with woods much like the ones that house the baskets in bremerton. Those trees and shrubbs and terain make a great day of observing, throwing the occasional disc too.
    Have fun!

    i tried to play there in the wind, and couldnt deal with it, so we left and played dabney, which had no wind despite being somewhat close. so if anyone else is dissapointed with how windy rooster is on a given day, try playing dabney instead

    I've played there in the snow and it was unreal as well - frozen waterfalls hanging under crown point...

    I've also played in 45 mph sustained winds with 60 mph gusts - one drive on 1E went 300 feet BACK into the parking lot after making it 100 feet forward and 200 left, I told my friend, look on the bright side, you just drove 600 feet!

    Most beautiful course? Tough question. Whistlers is up there, most mountain courses are unbelievable. Pier at dusk is amazing, Milo is amazing, wow - toughie. I cant decide, I think most disc golf courses are beautiful places!

    I highly doubt it.

    Yes, they can.

    As a kid, I used to walk through my Grandfather's cherry orchard to get to Sorosis park. Sadly, that was about 25 years before the dg course.

    Whistlers!

    On a clear day Sirosis has to be on the list. My first visit there, you stand in one place and turn your head for a spectacular view of Mt. Hood, apple orchards, vineyards, turn your head the other way and view the Columbia, Mt. ????? (just blanked on the name).

    And really the most beautiful courses I have played are the ones where my wife is with me.

    Adams. It's much more prominent from Sorosis than Hood is.

    Trophy Lakes in SC is gorgeous. Lake Casitas as well. For local courses Lucky Mud is the true jewel.

    Hard to choose...

    So to illustrate my point, I wouldn't normally rank Dabney as the most beautiful in the area, but last Friday evening on 4, I walked up to my drive and looked toward the basked only to see a second year fawn eating apples directly between me and the basket with a setting sun behind both (crappy iphone photograph illustrating the incident attached...)

    The deer refused to move, even as my Super Roc glided about 10 feet in front of it's head (for an easy par...to heighten my pleasure...)

    The moment was gorgeous and sublime and mostly attributable to my having lucked into a wonderfully aligned set of circumstances at the perfect moment.

    Rooster in late summer when the Pileated Woodpecker are cruising the cottonwood tops at sunset can be kinda neat too...
