For the moment, please do NOT contact the city about this idea. We'll want to have all our ducks in a row when they are first approached. Thanks.

I thought maybe you might want to see this if you haven't already! 


A good way to raise money for a course in my opinion.

Yeah I think that's a great Idea seems like it could be a very nice place to have a course

I had heard rumors of Lasky, but never heard more than that. I'll have to bike over and check it out. I just looked at Google Earth view, and it looks like you described it. I would have guessed that was Hamtramck, but I would have been wrong. Thanks for the info. BTW, Belle Isle would be awesome, but there is an old nursery by Rouge Park in which TommyO and I had designed a 24-hole object course.

BTW, Lasky Rec Center was the 1st ever disc golf course installed in Detroit even though its as if you are standing in a school playground throwing at some baskets.
It s a course and it is in Detroit.

That is fine with me. I called down to the Parks Department today and as I expected, Lawrence "Happy" Hemingway left with the old regime. I can tell you Lawrence was extremely nice to work with and was very interested and helpful in getting the course installed at Lasky Rec Center.

I left a message for the new Park and Rec Manager and I think she called but I was at Addison Oaks talking with their board about getting cement tee pads installed there and could not take the call. When we got out the department was already done for the day. I will try again tomorrow.

Progress? Hardly. At least now I know who I am dealing with and that is a start.

I prefer here, John, but only because I'm not on Facebook.
Comment by John Minicuci on November 10, 2009 at 7:34pm
So, does anyone have a preference where we should disc-uss this topic more: here or the Facebook page?
I am all for not duplicating general discussions.
We can post important milestones or info at both locations.

Discraft's Detroit = Suburbs
At least that was the mood back in the late-90s. Before Cass-Benton was installed, Kenner told me that baskets in Detroit would be stolen. Of course, we'd have a course already if we had the baskets stolen from Cass. Maybe Discraft has changed its anti-Detroit bias, or maybe Innova would like to support a course in Discraft's back yard. Either way, if disc golf really wants to broaden its base, rather than grow the same demographic, I can't think of a better city than Detroit to start.
