You should try calling "Willowbrook DGC" in Byron, MI. Its a ball golf course that had an 18 hole DGC added to it. I went there a few days ago and they said next time we come to call ahead because they are trying to sell their baskets and get rid of the course. They have mainly DisCatcher baskets.

Not sure what the baskets are going for, but here is the number-
(810) 266-4660

Lightning DB5 are good baskets for the price. They would not be my first choice for a new course but if the budget is tight they are a good option at around $200.00 each.

5500 bucks for 18 sounds good. I would opt for the DGA Mach III's for 7500 though. At least you know what you are getting and you have the warranty.

The River Oaks Golf Course in Lansing, IL. had a DGC. They closed the DG course and pulled the baskets. The baskets may still be available. This is the pro shop #708-868-4090.

We figured $500-600 per hole with basket, concrete boxes, and a post for signage.

I don't know what Gateway is charging for the Titans, but since they are newer and I assume trying to popularize them, they might be cutting breaks for early adopters. I don't know, but it might be worth a call...

IMO thats pretty conservative considering a DGA basket is about $450. That only leaves you $150 for cement, wood, aggregate, post, and signage plus any other additional labor you may need.

Yes, but the Innova DisCatcher price was around 300$, but you have 200-300 for pads, and that's a little more palatable. Plus, if you stamp the concrete as I seen in signage thread - you can save money on markers.

Sorry, but I wasn't planning on spending $450/hole on baskets. It just seemed like way more money for something that wasn't that much better. I got the Discathers for $2700 for 10 baskets. (Buy nine get one free.)
