#31 Govan,SC . It was a private course set up on pasture land. Had some small ponds, elevation changes, and large live oak trees. The last tourney there they had roped off areas marked as if you were playing the USDGC at Winthrop. Hole #18 was 1/4 mile long, with roped off area down the fairway so you had to be long and accurate. Sadly this course ended because it went on two seperate family farms, and they had gotten into some disputes, so the course went by the wayside.

It's a shame we can't have these on DGCR so we can still count extinct courses in our total courses played.

Somebody from Oregon help me out here. A few years back there was a course listed in Troutdale called "Hagars Full Sail Disc Golf." It sat behind a tavern, had three baskets which you shot at from three different teepads and bordered on the Sandy River. Does anyone recall it? I played it a few years back Is it still open?

And there once was a course in Albany on the west side of the freeway located in kind of an industrial area. The little lake now looks like a toxic waste dump. Anyone remember playing this course when it was open?

Let us know about these two and we'll officially add them to the list.

There were two Fly 18 courses in Chicago, one at Edgebrook Golf Course and another at River Oaks Golf Course in Calumet City. Both were pulled last fall. My understanding is that the Edgebrook course might come back after the no compete clause expires, but at this point both are gone.

The course at U.C. Santa Cruz is still listed on the PDGA site and here at DGCR, but it's "extinct" for most purposes. I don't know if it was ever really a serious course; it never had teepads or baskets, or even tone poles as far as I know.

Also, there used to be an object course on Mt. Tabor here in Portland, OR. Some people still play it, I hear, but there's way too many pedestrians and park users up there.

Do you mean Simpson Park? If so, it's said that it'll come back some day...

There was course on Maui that was recently delisted near Lahaina. But as this course died, another one is in development, which is nice to see.

Yep, that's it! Simpson Park is no more. Tim took it off this site. There is nothing there any longer. Just a big ugly polluted looking lake.

I have a copy of the 1986 PDGA Course Directory. I can start scanning through it and seeing which courses are no longer listed on DGCR. At the moment I can't locate my 1984 directory...
