any tips on buying 18 baskets cheap?

I've been working on plans to get a course put in at a local state park(Mauch chunk lake park, jim thorpe, PA)... i've done some minor shopping around for a bulk deal on 18 baskets, but the cheapest I could come up with was roughly $5,500.. any thoughts?

There's a thread on homemade baskets that might help:

I finished my basket up for around $70 but I had the bike parts and several other key elements.

If you need 18... You will need to buy them or get the temp Instep baskets. They run cheap and seem to have decent reviews. They are nowhere close to the dg park quality but if $$$$ is the concern, not too much you can do.


Baskets are very expensive if you want a decent one.

find a disc golf course that caved/is caving and buy em off the parks dept cheap... heck... if you're just putting em in another park they'll prob drive em over there for you.

Of course, that is assuming that they are in a park and going to one... but the idea could work anyway.

We have a local in Olympia that makes baskets. His original baskets are PDGA approved targets, our club designed a variation of his original that has three sets of chains(mach V style). These are not approved targets, but catch excellent. I can't quote you a price, but our price was less than that of your $5500. If your interested, email me, chrisgilberts@msn.com and I can put you in touch with him.

His baskets are professionally made (his family ownes a machine shop), and these baskets, although not quite as heavy as the mach series, catch excellent, are hot dipped galvanized, and plenty sturdy.

Disc golf Association is doing a fundraiser and giveaway of some baskets. Maybe you could try that.

When I ordered Mach IIIs for the park, DGA had the best prices. I got a deal Buy 9 get one free.

I just looked at Marshall Street and they have a deal going now for Mach IIIs 18 for $7,560 free shipping. That will be cheaper than DGA.

On last thought. You should figure no lees than $1,000/hole to build the course.
