The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Anyone out there play, hear about, make or been to a course that's not exactly legit? I grew up riding BMX and still ride. A big obstacle was always having a place to build jumps(trails( http://www.vimeo.com/740858 )), so we would find a "vacant" piece of land and dig away. Of course, lots of issues to deal with, the main one being all that hard work going down the drain, but the times we had to enjoy will last a lifetime. The video I linked to is a video I shot and edited and those trails have now been plowed and are long gone, a new location has been found and that's underway.

Anyways, just wondering if there is anything like this is disc golf...

edit: since I didn't really say it, I'll just put it out there and I know some of ya'll might not agree since it could actually give disc golf a bad rep, but we're being super low key about it, so I think we should be fine. Anyways, big piece of city land, couple walking trails going through, not much other traffic. Lots of elevation changes and variation in the type of vegetation. We're starting with two homeade(tire style) baskets. Not sure how we're going to disguise them yet, whether it be paint or putting branches on them when we leave or just letting them be. We'll have several tees to each of the baskets and we'll go from there. We're not going to spend lots of time or make an 18 hole course because we know the second we put the baskets in, they might be gone the next time we come back. We're basically doing it to give us something close and something kind of fun to do. About six of us will know where these baskets are in this 100 acre park and I think it should be kind of fun and low key. I will be posting pictures and video of what we have going on. Hate it or love it, just hoping to have a little fun and stay respectful of the land(not cutting trees or damaging the park outside of putting a basket in and a few weeds trampled).

The best way to do this is probably take in the baskets, maybe move them during the round to different "holes" and then take them out when you leave. Simple and you don't leave a trace behind. You will just have to scout your tees and holes ahead of time.
We do much the same thing down here in Chico. We take a basket out to Cherry Hill (on Lassen National Forest) and play around the campground. A great way to get out of the valley heat, anbd the Rangers have never complained about us.

Inexpensive tone poles seem like the best choice. That way they'll have to find them first if they are gonna pull them out.
