I want a course built in my area. How can this be done?

Postby eisenhower » Tue Jan 02, 2007 2:17 pm

Many students play disc golf on our college campus. But its very informal; they play with wham-o ultimate frisbees and use trees and light posts as holes.
I was wondering how I should go about getting a course built?
I was thinking about writing a letter and/or getting a petition signed and mailed to some office, affiliated with the school or not.
I could also start a disc golf club to raise enough money to build a course, or at least buy some portable baskets.

What are your thoughts? Anyone have expirience with doing stuff like this?

I would think write a letter to your local Park District or councilman telling them about the benefits of having a disc golf course. A signed petition would also be nice because then it would show how much interest is in the sport.

There is a great proposal available for download at the pdga site. Just fill in the blanks. That covers all of the basics. Plus a few companies offer a matching basket program for schools.
