Default course targets?

Does anyone have any idea what would be the best baskets for a home course? My family has some acreage that could hold a good size course. We are starting with a 10 hole, and need to find some baskets that will hold up but not break the bank.

Any ideas?

I love my Innova Discatcher. And it's only like $100.

what are you looking for? A more permanent setup or a portable/semi-portable one?

I am looking for something permanent, but there won't be alot of traffic so lighter duty would work.

Innova Pro is what is seen at many courses, but I think as a little more than you are looking for.

DGA makes the Mach series and are also very popular. The Mach III and Mach V are their biggest sellers, but the Mach II is made for lighter use like you are looking for. All can be found here.

The Discraft Chainstar is also very good.

DGA Mach 14 if you want cheapest but still real basket like. around $130.



I am thinking you would want to spray it down with some sort of rust protector as well.

Awesome...thanks for the info. We are still designing the course, but this will help us when we are ready for construction.

I have a DisCatcher Sport in my backyard as a practice target. It is holding up great, but doing the math for a whole course made me cringe a little. I have looked at a lot of the baskets out there, but wanted to know how the cheaper ones hold up to weather.

The Sport doesn't hold up to weather over the long haul as well as more expensive baskets. However, it catches better than the M-14. With either, you can always add chains later to improve their catching.

Assuming you're OK with portables (which are stealable).

Portables are ok. There is very little chance of people finding the course, much less stealing something.
