The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
Is anybody out there aware of a Zip Line/High Ropes course that coexists with Disc Golf. If so share your thoughts...Hell, share them even if you don't know of one.
Our City in it's infinite wisdom is working to slap a Zoom Air Zip Line Deal directly on top of us.
Will see how the frothing by the city officials will react to the adjacent neighborhood's mindset.
Also, seems like the city's mind is all ready made up.
But, and hope with enough enthusiasm from everyone else it can be stopped.
Don't really see a coexistence, after seeing the Sanford Zoo zipline setup.
Twenty feet off the ground is not that high. How many have seen discs travel higher than that?
All of us.
If it were not for the park being a tree preserve, it would have likely been a used car lot by now.
Disc golf does not stand a chance against those who do not love it as much as we have that have put many hours out there.
Between clean ups, removing riff raff (transients and perverts included), installing tee pads, baskets, cleaning fairways, running tournaments...... need we say more.
Hope only for the best.
Really do not see this tree top obstacle course to have as much traffic as the zoo gets.
What is @ USF's dgc?There is some large ,wooden tower located at the far left of park,possible zip line or climbing tower?
Somewhat private dgc for USF students/alumni only.might want to contact them or the Tampa Bay dg folks.
There is talk of a large amusement water park being considered built in Port Charlotte.Zip Line is one of the many attractions,but this will be down the road from our North Charlotte Regional Park where our dgc is located.That and a Cal Ripkin bb park is one of the many projects being planned.Final plans can/will go awry and might be closer to the park.
Wouldn't they install metal towers for the line instead of using trees for stability?
It would seem to me that if your park is in a tree preserve, that killing some trees by attaching a zip line to them is NOT preserving trees.
No one ever said that the Daytona Beach city officials were the most astute people inhabiting our planet.
The only 'green' that they are interested in is the color of money.....
This company is unfortunately for that point of an argument is on top of their game...eco friendly with an impeccable safety record. The platforms are designed to allow for normal growth of a tree and they apparently don't harm any trees by attaching cables..ropes and what not.
