Default My DIY Disc Golf Target!

Hey everyone I recently tried my first attempt at a goal! I got everything in one trip to Lowes and it cost around $75, less if you have some parts laying around already! I posted instructions on this website





Just wanted to share with everyone here! Thanks

Nice! I always like seeing DIY, innovative baskets.

How well does it catch? Looks pretty solid.

Thank you!! I think it gets the job done. I'll see if I can post this video of a couple being tossed in (its hard to record and throw at the same time lol)

Looks like a great design! My biggest worry would be where the chains connect to the plastic up top as far as wear. Let me know how it holds up, cause I may shamelessly steal your design!

Thank you! Shamelessly steal away, that's what it's here for

so far the chain hasn't wore on the holes i drilled in the side of the lid at all, but I will keep an eye on it and let ya'll know! Seems like it will not be a problem if I had to guess. The wood piece at top helps take the weight off the lid itself I believe.

great looking basket. I like the fact that the top matches the "feet".

Thank you! The umbrella base is pretty heavy and I guess I got lucky the PVC fit right over it. Doesn't wobble at all!

Plenty more pictures in the link in my first post

If anyone has questions or wants photos of specific parts let me know. It comes apart but I wouldn't call it "mobile" lol. Pretty simple to build though I finished it in one evening

That's a classy base if I've ever seen one.

Hahaha. Okay I should mention I didn't include the umbrella base in the price, my girlfriends parents had it in their backyard
