After being part of a course install in Ontario, I gotta say $700k sounds like a lot, but for a normal course that didn't involve any earth moving, it was about $4k per hole. Most of that was labor for the basket and pad install. Once you add any type of earth moving that takes more than a week or two, and any outdoor shelters or bathrooms you burn through that $700k pretty quick.

I disagree with your review, particularly the part about layout and flow.

There are 6 tees that are inside the 20 metre circle of the previous basket, there are 3 holes that require you to walk across another hole to follow your drive, and there are few facilities at the course, save a gazebo and parking lot for 20 cars.

I would say the concerns in this thread are all valid, and it's a shame that the Calgary Disc Golf Club, City of Calgary, and the Memorial fund squandered this opportunity and money on what is t even the best course in Calgary, let alone Alberta .

I’m happy to have a differing opinion. Based on the size, I don’t think there was much more they could have done, and while some tee boxes may be closer to baskets than you’d like, there is usually trees between, and I always felt safe on the day I played, which was jam packed.

It was a heck of an improvement over any the courses I’ve played in S. Alberta and B.C. I’m back up next week and will look more critically.

I played again there yesterday, the baskets were in different locations this time, and I would agree more with you, the flow was a lot worse, especially the back 8-9 holes. It did feel weird.

Lots and lots of thistles, hope they spray soon.
