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?

Living here in Hilo HI I have seen a number of places that would be nice to have baskets... and since we have no baskets even where we play, it's even more so on my mind! I'll miss living here in alot of ways, but man I can't wait to move back to the basket land... I mean the main land!
all the rock would f-up my plastic
30 acres = picth and putt....need like 100 acres
I always thought one in downtown Washington D.C would be sweet. throw over the reflecting pool to a basket at Lincolns feet.
I have seen some cemeterys that would make great disc golf courses.  If people would just get baskets and tee pads as grave markers (with some kind of plack or somthing).  That would be great.
"Playing Through...."
Like a basket mounted to my headstone.
If you had long and short tee's and three pin positions for each hole you could sell 90 burial plots. I'm just guessing here but I bet they would go for at least $500 each so that would raise $45,000 which would more than cover the cost for the tee pads, signs, and pole holes! Of course you would have a moment of silence before each round out of respect for the fallen disc golfers.
Perhaps some corpse-like or skeleton arms sculpted coming up out of the earth, holding the pole of the basket as if they pushed the basket out of the earth or were holding it in place would work.

Have a tournament where the only discs allowed are Steady Ed Memorial Discs.  It could be a "Raising the Dead" Tournament.
