DISC GOLF COURSE DESIGN
The game is played on an open-air course, (that can vary in size),
in which a sport-disc is thrown into a series of "Basket" targets - the object being - to use the fewest possible throws to complete the course.
If you're looking for something a little more economical.
Disc Golf has many benefits.

We also RE-design DISC GOLF COURSES for better play,
and added recreational value for more people.

Design and Construction Budgets
Okay... so... if your course SUCKS... and it's of little value...
YOU NEED A COURSE MAKEOVER!
We completely understand... it's not your fault... that's just the way it was.
IT ALL BEGAN... with a "Basket-on-a-Pole"
In the 1970s... Ed Headrick owned the name “DISC GOLF™”,
invented the “basket-on-a-pole” target for completing each “Hole”
and started a sports-business.
Over the next 40 years… others would get into the business of making "Baskets-on-a-Pole" and... in time... more than 8,000 “basket” courses
were installed in more than 40 countries... all around the world.
An average of 200 new courses were installed every year...
and a new sport was born.
During this initial growth period, the sport of "DISC GOLF" was marketed
by the makers of the target "baskets" as a cheap and low-budget
form of outdoor recreation.
The goal of the manufacturers was to SELL MORE "BASKETS"
IT WORKED FOR THEM BUT... it did not work for the overall good of the game.
When people thought about building "DISC GOLF" courses... they were told
it was a GREAT CONCEPT with MINIMAL COST and could be built
ALMOST ANYWHERE... and on almost any ground surface.
It kind of seems right... that you would only need "baskets" to build a course...
or at least... THAT'S WHAT THE MANUFACTURERS TOLD (SOLD) YOU.
They were right about a "great concept" BUT...
wrong about the master plan.
ALL of the courses were LOW-BUDGET,
mostly FREE and of VERY POOR QUALITY.
As a result... it stalled quality growth for years
and IMPAIRED THE IMAGE of the game.
The HIGH VOLUME/SUB-QUALITY growth of the sport...
only reinforced a POOR PERCEPTION.
The "low-budget" era of the game served its purpose
and proved it to be a legitimate concept BUT...
the courses were not good enough to attract the "general public".
LOW-BUDGET, POOR QUALITY and FREE... DOESN’T WORK WELL... if you really want to attract a much larger market.
You can't expect the "general public" to play a low-budget, poorly maintained, un-supervised course.
It wouldn't work for GOLF and... it doesn't work for DISC GOLF!
Out of 8,000 "Disc Golf" courses... in 40+ countries worldwide...
below are the TOP 10 BEST "Disc Golf" courses.
(ranked by... dgcoursereview.com)
As a recreation executive... how many "Disc Golf" courses... WOULD YOU PLAY?
Old school "Disc Golf" doesn't look that good anymore.
Would your “general public” play sub-quality courses?
Would your “community” play sub-quality courses?
Would you… “yourself” play sub-quality courses?
The problem is... it's a VERY PLAYABLE game BUT,
most courses aren't suitable for the "general public".
ALMOST ALL OF THE COURSES ARE OF VERY POOR QUALITY.
Only the "hard-cores" play and MOST of even those players will eventually get frustrated, lose interest and withdraw from the game.
Over the years... about 20,000,000 avid players have come and gone... because the players grew up... but the courses did not.
Those players would still be playing today if not for the poor quality of the courses.
