    In from Denver March 13-14

    Hello!

    I will be visiting the Emerald City March 13-14 and I have time to play a course while I am out. We will be mostly staying near the airport and downtown so I would prefer it be close to that area. Let me know if anyone can guide me on a course one of those days.

    Thanks,

    Cam

    I second Tim's around-the-sound recommendation. Spend the whole day and hit up the Kitsap County Fairgrounds course and you have completed the Triumvirate of West Sound Awesomeness.

    Yeah, Dalaiwood is cool, very tight and technical and has the homey atmosphere you can only get with private courses. It's a bit of a drive over there, especially to just play one round. If you were to make the trip, I'd recommend driving south around the sound, playing Dalaiwood, then hitting up NAD in Bremerton, and then taking the ferry back to Seattle.

    Oh, and if you haven't made up your mind yet, don't let these guys dissuade you from Lakewood. We only have the 4 courses in Seattle so they start to get old after a while. Lakewood might seem "average" to us now, but I remember how nice it seemed when I first moved here. Seatac is my favorite, but it's arguable that Lakewood is the most "fun" course in Seattle. Edit: Do be aware though, that it'll also be the most crowded.

    Should be plenty of peeps out that day.
    Last Saturday both Seatac and Lakewood were very crowded.
    Your timing should be fine as far as weather. We have not had freezing temperatures here since mid December last year, but this week winter has returned to Seattle, with some snow flurries near sea level in some areas.
    The cold weather is expected to stay all week , but by the weekend, it looks ok.
    The forecast for the White Center area is;
    Saturday: A chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 50.

    Seatac is five minutes away from Lakewood.
    Lakewood is an average course, but Seatac is one you wont soon forget.
    If you only have time for one, you should play Seatac.

    Here is the final word:
    If you want to play the best course, play Sea Tac. Don't waste your time at Lakewood, unless you have time to play both courses.
    Sea Tac is so close to the airport that you could drop in to it from your airplane ala Arnold as John Matrix in Commando

    Lakewood would be your best bet if you only have time for one round. If there is time for more, I recommend Seatac or Whiteriver...although BA would love to share his margarita (using two straws) in his nalegene water bottle while showing you his magical forest in Lake Stevens.

    Seriously though, stick to Seattle.

    I read post #3 as well, but unlike your(seemingly oblivious)self, I didn't proceed to make 3 posts that had zero information that was being requested. Maybe I missed the group 'joke'?

    If you have time for a full day of disc golf, I'd consider(getting a guide &) going to Steilly in Tacoma for a few rounds... check it out on DGCR. It's just under an hour from downtown Seattle.

    SeaTac & Lakewood are both the closest, but Lake Fenwick and White River aren't too much farther, although out of the four, I'd recommend Lakewood. If you're interested in picking up a local stamped disc, Chainbangerz disc golf store is also very local and minutes away from SeaTac & Lakewood. I'm up for playing, if you end up needing help.

    May as well toodle on over to De Laveaga too and make an afternoon of it.

    Seriously though, camgolfer, welcome to Seattle in advance. Post here again when your trip gets a little closer (sometimes we have memory problems), and I'm sure we'll be able to find someone to show you around.

    True that. Playing Lunchtime on east wind days is a pain and a half.
