Thanks for the input so far, keep it coming - sorry my first post was so long, I didn't realize I had written so much I thought I only had like 5 points I wanted to hit, seemed like 100...

Anyway, I appreciate the comments and will keep these things in mind as I head into the meeting regarding the course, then I will report back here to ask more questions once I have more information. Thanks!

Baskets at Sugaree = Twisted pile of metal scrap after first group of 8 year olds plays through.

Thanks for the advice, I definitely see your point.

Ha. Yea, I guess so, if climbing on baskets is part of your team building
program. Is so, let the little fellas throw at a pile of rocks or a tree.

At the local elementary/middle school I was able to use 7 baskets for a short easy course with mostly open holes between 150'-250'. Each class grades 4-8 were able to play it twice around in the 45 minute class time. THEY LOVED IT!! Every time they saw me at school they were excited.

My daughter hosted a charity event as part of her volunteer time she needed for beta club. A gently used disc was part of the entry. Mulligans were sold. She was able to donate 45 discs and a lightning basket to the school.

If you're set on having actual basket versus a target course there are options to getting up to five baskets for right around $1,000. If you go with a target course, there lots of great opportunities to build you own targets that will be fun and with excite kids more so than baskets.

You can also go with a object course and hit trees and only have the kids play Super Class.

I have done a number of camp courses, just be sure to design for the camper!

Simple sign post can be seen here: http://www.bluegrassdiscgolf.org/WestKY4H.html
High end signs can be found here: http://www.bluegrassdiscgolf.org/TimHorton.html

With your limited budget, object golf might be a good start and spend the funds on light weight disc (I use 133gm sharks for campers) and promotional efforts to get funding (sponsors) for baskets.
