Kelly has temporarily closed the Flyboy Aviation course near Atlanta due to incidents occuring on the course and neighbors complaining about disc golfers cussing, smoking and littering.  Check for a more detailed account   http://www.dgcoursereview.com/forums/showthread.php?t=28506   From what I gather you can still play but have to be escorted.   Several holes have been removed including the 1600 foot runway hole.  He will still hold the Atlanta Open in April and FlyGirls tourney as well.
It's a shame that a few bad apples can spoil it for everyone.  It is a must play course for anyone that loves disc golf.

That's a damn shame!

This quote pretty much sums up his frustration...

"I’m not blaming anyone but myself. I invited you all here, I know disc golfers will be disc golfers, and I took the risks in order to share my course with you. (So to the guy who threw the shot across the runway on #21, right in front of an airplane cresting the hill on takeoff roll, you can breathe easy…. you were only focused on making par.) Otter’s famous quote from Animal House comes to mind: “You f#%*ed up, you trusted us!”

Just called and made a reservation! A couple of us are going down in a couple of weeks to play this course as well as some others...so its not really a big deal unless u live in the area and are used to playing it all the time at will...really excited to play this course, but it does suck that a couple of the runway signature holes had to be removed, even if you have permission to play.

There's no doubt in my mind that you'll love this course. But some of the holes on the short list are awesome. I wouldn't miss the runway hole as much as some of the others. Hopefully you'll get to play them all.

Clash DVDs on youtube has some very cool video from the final round of the Atlanta Open last weekend, which just happened to be held at Flyboy.  It is a very impressive looking course.  That 950ft dogleg right along  the dam makes you pucker up just seeing it on video.
