Disc Golf Thesis - Landscape Architecture

Postby mplansky » Mon Dec 16, 2013 3:25 am

Here's a link to a Cal Poly Pomona Master's thesis on Disc Golf Course Design for S. Cal's underutilized landscapes and lifestyle sport theory:

http://issuu.com/subsurface_2012-13/doc ... _thesis_r3

It includes 44 transcribed interviews of disc golfers from 4 course typologies (1) La Mirada (2) Oak Grove (3) Yucaipa (4) Murrietta [ Mt. Pride ]

any comments?

Is it available as a PDF?

380 pages is a lot to read in a flash-like browser interface (or whatever Issuu is). Much easier on a Kindle or iPad.

I'd be interested in reading it, but not like this.

Got through about 30 pages, it was a pretty good read, but [Initiate English Major Mode] there's a misspelling on the first page of the text following your introductory thoughts saying "fist" when it should say "first" [/English Major Mode]. I believe this was in reference to the first disc golf course.
