View Full Version : First steps to getting a new course installed?
10-31-2008, 04:49 PM
I heard a rumor about a disc golf course being installed in my hometown, so I emailed a parks and rec guy and he said that there had been plans for one, but there have been budget problems. He also said that they haven't budgeted for 2009 yet though. So, I was wondering what are some things I could do to help get this course installed? Three Putt, you're the resident Parks and Rec guy. :)

A good place to start is by getting a qualified designer. Here's some information on DG Course Designers (http://www.discgolfcoursedesigners.org/discgolfwiki/index.php5?title=Main_Page).

It sounds like half your battle is fought. The parks dept. actually has it on thier mind. Personally you want to get in good with the park guy in your area. Take him out to play. Budget is always and issue. Do you have a club that can help you find hole sponsors? will the park buy the baskets if you can fund the amenities? What other activities are in the park? Is it even a good park for disc golf? Be prepared to do a lot of work. Before the begining construction of the course get totgether a group of at least 10 dedicated volunteers and get the word out about working on this course to as many people as possible. Appreciate your volunteers. Thank your sponsors. I could go on and on and on. It is a lot of hard work to coordinate the course installation. A lot of parks departments have few resources and the more you can coordinate for them the more likely they will green light the project.
