Default Disc golf courses that coexist with ball courses

I'm in the process of devising a plan to present to a city park here in Atlanta about installing a disc golf course that would coexist with their historic 9 hole ball course. Do you guys know of any other courses like this? I know of one near Chicago, but am trying to find others so that I can record the feedback from those who play it to generate further ideas. The board in charge of the park's revisioning process seem very interested, just want more information and ways on how it could work. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

There is kind of one in Lewisville, TX on the lake. They don't intertwine or anything, but there is a 9 hole ball golf course right next to the 18 hole disc golf course.

Wirth Par 3 and Ft. Snelling in Minneapolis plus Bulldog Run in Plainview, MN. All three are on 9-hole ball golf courses.

How does it work on those? Do discers and ballers play at the same time behind and in front of one another? How much interference occurs?

Disc golfers and ball golfers play in the same flow although at Bulldog, the last few DG holes are not on a ball golf fairway. Some longer ball golf holes incorporate two DG holes. Ball golfers are more likely to drive into disc golfers than the opposite. The safe way for disc golfers to play is to rent a cart so the ball golfers can more easily see that they are playing in front of them.

Thank you for the information! I will gladly take any other ideas on how this could work if you have any. In what ways could those courses be better? What things do people dislike? I guess most importantly, how do the ball golfers feel about it? Sorry to probe...

River Chase in Union, SC incorporates both, using the same fairways and flow, 1 disc golf hole per ball golf hole. You just about have to use carts due to the length. They might be a good reference for you to use.

PM Sadjo (or wait for him to post here). He can tell you how well they merge. My understanding is that disc golfers play a little faster than ball golfers, especially putting out. If so this would be good, to minimize the danger of ball golfers hitting the disc golfers, or being annoyed by our presence (ball golf being the primary purpose of the course).

Spring Valley DGC is a disc golf and ball golf course. The finesse 18 is 18 wooded holes and power 9 is 9 holes on the golf course that are LOOOONG. The baskets are located usually beside or behind greens and the putting green is OB. Spring Valley is owned by disc golfers and is a GREAT play to play. Price is $3 a day to play disc golf and the power 9 is closed on weekends in respect to ball golfers.

Here are two examples of great ball/disc golf co-existence:

Goat Hill

Verdugo Hills

It is also in the middle of nowhere so traffic for either isnt that big of a deal.
