If there are designated tees, than it is an actual course. While possibly crappy and only a couple of holes - still a course. Practice courses are really just baskets in an area without designated holes/tees to...practice on.

We have six baskets around ball fields at the Shaver Recreation Complex in Seneca, SC. There's also a full 18 hole course at the park. The six baskets in the field have no marked tees but locals have set tee areas.

Westminster, SC has one basket at a local park. I've taken my boys there to play on the playground. Its great to get some putting practice in while they play.

Then there are two baskets at a park in Franklin, NC with a sign that says Disc Golf practice area.

The only other one I'm aware of is the baskets located around a small college campus in Emmitsburg, IA. No marked tees just baskets on one side of campus.

Where did you get these numbers from lion? off this site? Because I've played 3 "practice courses" in california, that are not listed on here, but are open to the public.

I know of 2 here in the st louis area that are middle schools with 9 baskets, but there is no sign of teepads or anything. I have gone to one of them a couple times since its closer to my house than any course, and did some field practice, where i still had baskets to aim at and could putt and stuff
Where are these? I live in an area of the city that is a bit of a drive from the major courses and may check them out if they are close...

I got my numbers from the site. I just clicked the practice course box and it said 61 in the united states. 11 in California. They dont show up unless the box is checked.

Sounds like you need to add them to the directory.

I recently added a course to the directory and it looks like it has been removed. Any idea how/why this happened? It was a practice course, 5baskets, and was on here for a few days before being removed.

there was a practice course in elkins, wv at the davis & elkins college campus. when i went to it the first time, it was seven crappy baskets with no tees. fortunately, they added two more crappy baskets and gave all the holes tees (even if difficult to find). while not the best course and baskets ever, once you find the tees it's actually pretty fun. it always makes me happy to see improvement in courses!

Any time Tobin or I can beat you on ANY course is cause for celebration!

(I think the only time I beat you was at Mollie Joyce. I ruled that course like I was P. Schwayze )
