Course designed by a woman?

Postby JHern » Mon Jun 21, 2010 12:02 pm

My wife was asking me the other day whether there was ever a disc golf course that was designed by a woman.

Her point being that once that happened, disc golf will have just begun to become a truly co-ed sport.

Anyone know of any courses designed by a woman? Should we work to make it happen, in our local areas?

What is the basis of her argument when she says the sport will only be truly co-ed once a female has designed a course?

Andy Young, is the designer in Houston, why does it matter what gender a course designer is? Andy helped design the first course in Houston, many years ago, so discgolf has been co-ed by those terms for years. She has been involved heavily in the growth of discgolf in Houston.

Big Creek has the Freak, not Picard. But Picard is still a great, great course. Easily one of the best in the midwest, if not the country.
