I've not received any feedback from my long time traveling buddy yet; and I don't have any specific memory of it. Not sure if I played there or not. I did play the original Brown Deer Park course for sure though; with my oldest step brother; who's not even a discer.

They list baskets going in at Flip City as 1980. That can't be right. I think it's 1998. It was an object course forever before he put in baskets, though. I can remember numbers painted on trees when I was there in '98 to see the new basket course.

Impressive. I did a quick count and have only played 8 of these original courses.

I love this Disc Golf historical stuff!

I have played 46 of the original courses, including ones now extinct.

Of those, I've played 9 courses which were listed as being first in their states.

Ann Morrison-Idaho
Calvert Road-Maryland
Roosevelt Park, New Mexico
Rockwood Central, Oregon
White Birch, Missouri
Brahan Springs Park-Alabama
Ken Caryl DGC-Colorado
Oak Grove, California

and from my home state;

Bob's Disc Golf-Washington (extinct)

Bob's Disc Golf was the first basket course I ever played, just about 5 miles up the freeway. Bob thought he was going to make a fortune charging folks to play but the course was located in a poor location, a windy pasture with no obstacles. It closed within a few months. It was never listed anywhere. I'm impressed that someone was able to come up with the name. Bob did donate the baskets to the county where they were stored them in some barns for a couple of years before someone from the disc golf world tracked them down and used them as the original 18 baskets at Ft. Steilacoom Park in Lakewood.

I've played:
Wills Park #4 in GA
Horizon's #1 in NC
Kentwood #2 in NC
Cedar Hills #3 in NC (home course played it 2000+ times in the last 8 years)
Cedar Rock #3 in NC
Conrwallis #3 in NC
Highbanks Metro #4 in OH

So only 7 for me. Not bad I suppose. Played Highbanks as a 12 year old with my step brother. Didn't play again for 15 years until I played Horizon's in NC aside from target golf in my neighborhood.

Really cool info. So Fort Steilacoom NW is now the oldest course in WA? I was in Tacoma yesterday and drove over to play it. Great course.

Did you happen to notice any of the ancient old original baskets out there? There's a few left, but they're not played to any more, except one of them is a practice basket.
