Use the map at DGCourseReview.com
to find courses on your way. Off the top of my head, here are some places worth checking out:
- Novato, CA: Stafford Lake (18)
is one of the best California courses. Epic distance and scenery, and one of the best "Top of the World" holes
- Ukiah, CA: Low Gap Park (18)
& Lake Mendocino (27)
are both supposed to be very good.
- Eureka, CA: Cooper Gulch (9)
is short and wooded.
- Arcata, CA: Redwood Curtain at HSU (18)
is the most famous course in the Redwood Empire, but supposedly is a bit rough and has mostly tone poles (I haven't played it myself). Bring a map or play with locals. Mad River Pump Station #4 (9)
isn't spectacular, but is a fun half-hour of disc golf.
- Crescent City, CA: I don't know what the current status of Beachfront Park (24?)
is. They're slowly adding baskets, but the local club's Web site is never updated.
- Selma, OR: Lake Selmac (18)
is an easy detour off U.S. 199 on your way inland from the coast and definitely worth a stop and a $2 parking pass.
- Grants Pass, OR: Tom Pearce Park (18)
is definitely worth a stop (also $2, but I think you can use the same pass as at Selmac).
