Co-Golf (ball and disc) thoughts?

Curious to see what people think of co-locating courses. Have you played a "Co-Course"? Did ball golfers frown upon your presence? Do you think that a ball golf course posses the characteristics that you are looking for in a DG course?

Personally, I see pros and cons, Im not crazy about most of the set up's locally, the fairways are just wide open, no trees, etc.....but if done right (i.e. by an experienced disc golfer) I thik that for just the cost of baskets you could co locate a DG and Ball golf course together and make it cool. Im sure it would have to be a P2P, but that in itself has pro's n con's

Happy Friday Peeps

Ball golfers and Disc golfers are 2 totally different types of people (the majority of them anyway)...just don't like the idea of it

I definately agree with you about that, even some of my close friends who are avid ball golfers, will not even give DG a shred of respect, it really kinda upsets me, because we love the same sport, just use different tools.....

There is a ball/disc golf course in Spring. Yes, no respect from MOST ball golfers.

When I learned to ski snowboarders weren't allowed anywhere. Now they're everywhere.


Where was I going with this?

I didn't even know such a thing existed. How do they work? It seems like a shared tee box is a bad idea (disc golfers would rip it up) and shared greens would be even worse (is the basket on the same green surface as the ball golf hole?) It also seems like any spike-hyzer landing on the ball golf green surface would leave potentially huge divots.
So I ask again: how do these shared courses work?

I would expect the ball golfers to be impatient with the disc golfers. But I could be wrong.

Usually the baskets are off to the side of the greens in any trees or such, sometimes they are not even close to the greens....so the putting green doesn't come into play at all, in what I have seen.......mainly just share the fairways and teebox......there is a sweet video on youtube with some hotchicks that can throw, if anyone wants to look for it.....and post it...no clue what it was under......
