The clock is ticking...

Don't be fooled by the longevity of Bill and Flip City, all private courses are headed for extinction...

Why don't people take decent videos of all of these course so the rest of the world can see what they are/were?

It would be great if we could start a video library (links to youtube or wherever) of all the courses on this site. I like the reviews and pics, but a short 5 - 10 minute video of all the holes sure is cool...

Harmon Hills isn't officially closed yet. Some of the family wants to keep it open but it's a huge undertaking, 27 holes on a massive tract of land. As DiscChain said, stay tuned

and that is one of the few that you can find video of.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

Here's an aerial of San Saba:


- The lodge and driving range are real.
- Strawbale Field, Colorado River, and Meandering Greenbelt were the 3 courses.
- Rancho Grande, set on a wonderful hillside, was planned, but never built.
- Inky Dinky was a little Roc/Putter/Newbie course we were trying to talk John into.

Hole 18 at Colorado River is one of my favorite holes in disc golf.

Bart Zandustra (one of the Lemon Lake leaders/Red Roc DGC) has some Gran Canyone footage; trying to see if I can track down.

I got to stay at San Saba, but had broken my ankle the day before and could not play; my two traveling mates played all three. I think grodney had been there right before us as there were a billion Shiner bottles lined up along the porch....

Redesign. Most (if not all) of the holes have been changed
