Baskets to Germany

Quick question...

I'm putting a lot of effort into getting a disc golf course installed in Ulm, Germany and I wanted to have some numbers to give to the city in case they ask. How much would it approximately cost to get 18 baskets shipped to Germany? What would be the cheapest way?

Also, in general, how much does it cost to install and maintain a course?

As always, thanks in advance!

seriously well over $10,000 for any course.

DOMESTICALLY:
18 baskets, cement and ground sleeves = 6,500-7,500
Now add 18 tee pads, 18 tee signs, cost of tools for installation and maintenence, cost of upkeep, amenaties (benches, bathrooms, kiosk), and cost of repairs on broken and stolen baskets and signage.

you are looking at needing over $20,000 domestically, shipping to germany is a seperate fee.

See if you can get in touch with an outfit called New Games/FrisbeeSport.
They are headquartered in Germany.

Thanks for the information! I just checked out their website and they want 499,00EUR per basket. Gah...

That might be the cheapest way to do it though. I'll do more research.

You might be able to get the less expensive Innova basket model thru Discmania.

What about Innova Europe? Dont they have baskets for cheap since they have a ware house in Europe or one of the other companies. There should be a cheaper way.
