Disc Golf as a Suggestion to Improve

Quote:
Three grassroots ideas to improve Dayton starting now
Check out what #3 says:

Quote:
3. Disc golf course

Disc golf is a low impact hobby, and Bobby Walker, an employee of Air Force Research Laboratory, says a riverfront course would bring more people to the rivers.

Such a project could be established in one of the already-existing parks near the river and would bring new hobbyists to Dayton parks with relatively little effort. Disc golf is a Frisbee-based passtime that combines throwing a Frisbee with golf-like courses and standing goalposts.
“It requires almost no maintenance and is very noninvasive to establish a waterfront park attractions,” wrote Walker, a Lieutenant in the Air Force and a human factors scientist. “It is a fun, leisurely sport akin to Frisbee, and the project would bolster Dayton’s drive to be the outdoor adventure capitol of the Midwest.”
"Standing goalposts" is new.

Standing goalpost is a lot better than deer feeder or net though.

Cool mention, it seems like disc golf is showing up in a lot more mainstream media these days.

Maybe we should share some of the pix in the Disc Golf Throughout History thread with the meainstream media, just to show them who's enjoyed the sport before us.

I like that better than, "that grill looking thing".

1080 Krld in the dfw did a pretty good piece on dg a week ago. I didn't get to hear it but everyone said it was a good portrayal of the sport.

Dayton had a riverfront course called Eastwood back in 1991 when Worlds was held there but it was removed sometime before 2000.

I would love to see more disc golf in Dayton. As an employee working on WPAFB, I've envisioned a course on the acres of wooded land here on base, even. In my mind, any low-traffic, relatively unused land is improved by disc golf.

Re-installation of a course at Eastwood would be a definite improvement.

That was a fun flat course.

Dayton has really built up their golf scene over the years. I have to get back to Buck Creek this year. It's just outside of Dayton but one of the local club's courses.
