Default Disc Golf on ball golf courses managed by American Golf

Does anyone know of any disc golf courses sharing space with a ball golf course managed by American Golf Corporation? Has anyone ever pitched disc golf to them? There may be an opportunity in my area where an executive course managed by AGC has recently added a foot golf course. The ball golf course isn't busy, but it does get a decent amount of play -- maybe 60-80 rounds a day.

Thanks in advance!
Leonard

Foot golf. Like golf with a soccer ball?

Colonial Acres in Glenmont NY just added disc golf to the existing course. Not managed by the AGC though.

They've gone from zero courses to about 100, including about 20 within 2 hours of the SF Bay Area, in less than 2 years. All their courses are installed on an operating ball golf course. I think it's pretty silly, but after seeing it on a ball golf course, I have to admit I want to try it.

Thanks Daddy, I looked it up. Seems pretty stupid to me, kicking a ball is not that hard. Of course that is after several years of childhood soccer, even then it seems kind of stupid. I am willing to bet that just as many people say the exact same thing about our game though. A lot more kids today have grown up with soccer, than frisbee.

Not sure disc golf would appeal to the company because foot golf appears to be a revenue stream. The consensus I get from many dgers is they are not going to pay more than $5 - $10 per round. I played with a guy last week that told me Fontanel in Nashville was pulled shortly after installation because people had to pay to play and that deterred traffic.

I would be happy to pay more than $10 per round for a well-manicured disc golf course that includes country club level facilities.

I know many others that would do the same.

I'd pay $10 per round on a course that was well-manicured. I don't think $10/round will be enough to have a country club level facility.

I've played one disc/ball golf course combo, and it was simply atrocious.

So bad, in fact, that the owners ended up pulling the baskets.

I'm sure it could be done correctly, but my experience on such a beast was less than impressive.
