what would be really cool is to play the first course installed in each state.

Leonard park in Mt Kisco, NY is a Steady Ed course. It's been mentioned earlier, it's old, it's fun to play, and looks like some of the baskets are original.

But...Not for long. Our local club, WeDGE (Westchester Disc Golf Enthusiasts) is raising money for new baskets.

I'm not really sure how I feel about this. I mean the baskets are really bad. Some have been replaced- a long time ago, and one is still missing (14 and 20 share the same basket). But that's part of the character of the place. And it's never crowded. Even if the park is crowded with summer camp kids the course plays back up in the woods and you rarely come across other people.

With 18 or 21 shiny new baskets it will definitely be an awesome course but it won't be the same. But then again maybe that's how the original players felt about changing from tone poles to baskets. Anyway, if you're thinking of playing Leonard Park and want to do it before the change you've probably got a year.

I've actually heard that the Albert Oakland Front course in Columbia is the oldest in Missouri. White Birch, Oak Grove and AO Front all have 1979 install dates.

Kind of the problem is that feat is going to be impossible as some of those don't exist anymore.
