The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
HDG has been given permission to begin layout and construction of hawaii's first public course on 57 acres in pahoa . we were told to GO GO GO . and that they would help with funding and suport . ( heavy equipment ) basicically what ever we need to get this going . so i will be busy on saturdays for a while . this is my first course that i will have a hand in creating , along with hawaii disc golf .
all helpful hints , or experience with course construction will be taken with serious consideration .
thank you for your support . and who knows maybe next time you get out to the big island of hawaii , you can come and play on the new pahoa DG course .
Just to give ya a sense of scale:
That BOMF tree in the left center of the photo is roughly 200' x 150' (!)
That is a heck of a lot of land.
Great arial view.
Looks like there will be a nice variety of open and technicial places that can be made.
Good luck, and enjoy the fact that you'll be part of history.
which reminds me, are inside volcanoes OB?
You've obviously never played MacKenzie.
WOW-eee, Wait, why play disc when you LIVE in HAWAII?? I would be living on the North Shore surfing pipe all day, but I guess a disc golf course is needed just about everywhere.
A few suggestions then. Our club just successfully installed 36 holes at a local park that has been getting really good feedback..
Don't pour the concrete for at least a year to allow tweaking. Run a tournament to see how the course plays when its full of players. Let the design come to you. Look for cool downhill shots. Look for cool putting areas. Make it fun.
As for actual installation resources, DGA has good stuff on their website.
