The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

On New Years Day, I took my wife and daughter on a little day trip outside of Orlando to Lake Wales, FL to see the historic Bok Tower Gardens.   The place was absolutely gorgeous.  The gardens are top notch and the entire property is elevated on a hill.  In fact, Lake Wales in general is nothing but hills.  The property is riddled with little ponds tucked away in perfectly maintained gardens..  majestic oaks, fairways of all flavors, wooded, open and elevation galore (for Florida at least).    


The ENTIRE time I was there I kept spotting the perfect basket locations and tee spots.  I would joke with my wife around every corner that I wanted to go back to my car and grab my discs.   Finally she got annoyed and asked me, "is that ALL you think about!?"  and I simply shrugged my shoulders and sighed, "well, in a place like this?  how can I think of anything else?"  lol


I know it would probably never happen in a million years, but Bok Tower Gardens could host one of the neatest DG courses in Florida if allowed; hence the idea for this discussion.


I know I'm not alone here.   How many of you have gone to a place that would likely never install a course but you can't help but daydream about teeing off and hearing chains the entire time you are there?

Yeah, I've been there a few times and got the same response from my wife. Bottom line though.....Hell would most definitely have to freeze over before they'd even consider allowing a course at Bok Tower gardens. But it is good to dream. HA!

Are you kidding I do that walking through the local mall.  If I start in Target skirt the food court go through Dicks, J.C. Penny, Gander Mountain, and end in Sears I could have an awesome 18 hole par 3 course. 

One thing for sure...you'd have a better chance in that Mall than at these Gardens Matt and I know of....wouldn't be as sweet of a course.

*sits down after a quick lunch break @ Debary>>  Can you imagine the collateral damage in a shopping mall?   That would give my Star Destroyer all new meaning to it's name.  :-p

I always want to rip one into the Sunglass Hut...or a big hyzer bomb into the Gap.

oh man..  @Bok Tower, back behind the historic house there..  that open field that goes downhill to a little pond..  We walked back there and didn't see a soul.  If only I could sneak my practice basket down there off to the side where it wasn't too obvious.  I would love to go up top that hill to one of the lookout points and throw a few down that long winding fairway.   I'd get thrown out of there so fast!  lol

My backyard,it would have to be a mini dgc.

Boc Towers has my vote for Fantasy DGC.

Here ya go...

Indianapolis Motor Speedway's infield. The four ball golf holes would make a really sweet disc golf course. Big lake, nice elevation changes, wooded holes, open holes, rough, all different kinds of trees and beautifully manicured.
I'm in Sarasota and have been to Bok Tower Gardens once. I KNOW EXACTLY what you mean. That place would rock. I agree that it would never happen in a Million years. St. Mary's College of Maryland where I graduated in 1993 needs to install real baskets after their decades long tradition of object DG.. ( maybe they have, I haven't been there in over 11 years). The whole length of Sligo creek Park in Montgomery county Maryland would make a great all day mega course as well would parts of in Rock Creek Park in Washington D.C.  Back to Florida, Oscar Scherer park in Osprey and Urfer Family park in Sarasota would be  good ones, and finally, the park surrounding the lighthouse in St. Augustine.
yes Urfer Family park would be a good one
Fiji , bora-bora !
