Where you guys staying? We are staying in hazelwood at the la quinta, trying to avoid the hood :p

Should be shitty there too, says 40's and stormy saturday, and 40's and cloudy sunday. No fair, it was almost 80 there yesterday!

So how hard are these courses? Which one do we need to play if we have to choose? We arent going to get down until late afternoon friday so we only get one course to play. Anyone have any good advice on these courses?

Short answer: unless you feel like driving around all night I'd just head to SP. Sioux Passage is only a stones throw away from the airport (Hazelwood), while Jefferson Barracks is on the other side of town.

Its a coin flip on which is harder to play blind IMO. JB is shorter and has more scoring opportunities and some local lines, which makes it a nice one to play. That being said it's mostly park style golf so it can be played blind. On the flip side SP is a big course that covers a lot of land; its really a lot of placement golf. Practicing placement golf is never a bad thing and knowing which parts of the fairway you want to hit/avoid doesn't hurt. Its pretty open for the most part with a few wood lines bing played in and around so it's not that hard to play it blind.

Note: if you get to the course early you can get a lot of JB in before your round, where SP is a big course that covers a lot of ground.

If you want bang for your buck (or trip) go play Endicott. If your plying one blind you might as well play both blind and hit up Endicott and get 3 courses in while your down there. That's what I did last year for the STL Open. Since I couldn't get all four courses in I figured I might as will play Endicott and get 5 in for the trip.

Just one last thing...why exactly did i drive five hours south to pay money to play disc golf in a damn blizzard? Why did this sound like a good idea again?

Anyways...the courses were cool and the people were cool, too bad i played with almost all iowa guys both days.
