I REALLY want to play that course. If I ever get around to getting out to CO again, I'm hitting you up to see if I can.


I have aspirations of eventually placing a course (a real one, not just some temp baskets placed around) on my land someday. I'm a senior in college right now, and I've started looking at houses/property around the area I'll be working. I've pretty much refused to look at properties with less that 15 acres. I'd love to get my hands on a 40+ acre property.

Within a day trip of me I can think of someone who lives on a disc golf course (but the owners don't play)....a couple of farms with courses (don't know if the owners play, but you'd think they'd at least try), a private course closed due to government bureaucracy---plus a cluster of private courses in the NC mountains, of which I'm sure at least some are on property owned by the disc golfers. Oh, yeah, and those Stoney Hill guys.

I'm building a home course in California. Got 4 baskets set up, looking to add a couple more. No pics yet but the course is really cool. There's major elevation changes, huge hucks, downhill shots, and a nice balance of wooded versus open holes.

The first experience I got playing a private course was the Soaring South in Gulfport, MS. It was on some guy's farm with all his livestock all over the course. Decent course, water hazards on every hole, but livestock $*!@ everywhere. Last I heard it was closed though.

Holler In The Hills in Brownsville, KY is another private course that was in the top 10 a few months ago. Check out the pictures there for some ideas on what can be done with limited land available. Its got some really creative ways to incorporate elevation changes, woods, and boulders if you want to venture down that path.

Over thanksgiving I started making a basket and since then I have created three holes going to the same basket. With X-mas coming up I hope to have some more money to make a few more baskets.

Ain't that the truth. When I lived about 20 miles south of where I live now, i have about 7 acres. I would take my 3 portable baskets and position them in areas and take orange outside paint and make 6 tees per basket. After two or three times mowing the grass, it would be time for a new design.

I hate that I don't have enough land anymore. My inlaws have 80 acres in Jonesville, SC. I've got an object course there...just can't talk my father in-law into buying baskets...yet...
