Indoor Tiki Course.. It WILL happen, someday. Oh yes

Probably be part of a space that includes a stage, bar and restaurant etc. In a few more years there will be enough wealthy disc golfers in the Ann Arbor area who are tired of playing in the cold and snow in the wintertime.

David...I would bet we could get one of those abandoned mills to let us use them for a week to 10 days. Set up a course inside...one weekend to practice and then a one-time tournament.

In some small communities the local Development Authority has control of those old buildings. Might be able to get that one time use.

What we really need in South Carolina is for Millikin Textiles to turnover all their abandoned properties to the Disc Golf Community. In Clemson, there is about 50 acres owned by Milliken on Lake Hartwell. The mill has been torn down and Milliken still maintains the property..they cut the grass and tend to the flowers. Beautiful piece of property.

I bet if you could pull it off you could charge x amount to play, but you would need to make it worth it. But a place like that would be great for kids and youth groups. You may could score enough off them to actually pay the rent. But that is crazy amout for rent.

Terry Miller tried this in Franklin, WI a few years back. i dont believe it went very well. you could try contacting him here. hes the Disc Golf Blog Guy on PDGA. very very helpful and kind. hes a busy guy but im sure hed find some time to answer your questions.

the amount of space you would need to make it fun is just not economical doable. as a 'mini' course i could see it being popular for a short amount of time but the gimmick gets old fast.

Hmm, so would you put little above ground pools for water hazards?

Should definitely put a big barn fan behind one of the holes to simulate at least a little wind.

Have you considered pitching it as a course for mini discs?

I took a tour recently at Duke Energy's Lake Keowee plant. Some their multiple story high rooms with those giant turbins would be an awesome place to play.

If you were really stacked you could do it like old school malls with all the lame ass water features.

Speaking of which, an old school mall would make an incredible indoor course. Anyone have a shut-down one near them?
