Default Disc Golf Driving Ranges

Does anyone know where i can find a disc golf driving range? Preferably in Southern California but i am also curious to know about driving ranges all over the country and even the world.

PEACE

I don' t know of any official ranges, but most of us around here use football fields (premeasured) or a baseball field.

Paschall Park in Mesquite Texas has one with 500 feet marked and at least another 500 beyond that unmarked. It's the only DG course I've personally come across with a range.

I'm moving into my new house in the country next month. Front yard to the rear fence is 300 feet, with at least another 300 feet beyond that unoccupied. Plus, Paschall will be on the way home from work, instead of an hour detour. I might actually become good at this game.

find a football field. one of the local high schools has the shot-putt cement pads about 100' from the end of the football field. makes for a good 400+ft driving range. i dont think i would pay money to go through my discs in a field.

I just found a good softball field to practice at. I throw from home plate. The fences are marked at 325', which I rarely hit, and never made it over.

nice good idea. Yeah i was mainly wondering if there was a place that people could go to and throw discs to measure how far they throw. I have seen videos online at tournaments where they have distance competitions and they have markers at 100 ft, 200 ft, 300 ft, 400 ft, etc. And the only time i know how far i can throw a disc is when i am on a course and have a hole to throw at. But i would love to be able to try different styles of throws and see the distance i can get with different discs, styles, etc.

PEACE

Paschall Park in Mesquite, TX is the only one I've ever seen. It's free. Parallel to the seventh fairway, at the end of the parking lot. I use a football field about a half mile from my house.
