This could be the last winter before disc golf takes its first step into the mainstream. There's been a couple of ESPN ace highlights in the past year. The sports network sees it as a novel, quirky highlight opportunity to keep viewers' attention, and the interest of the broader publicly may have been collectively piqued? In 2016 the mainstream sports fans will be able to take a closer look. There will be 3 new pro-tours debuting next year with strong financial backing, including a wor ... more

Help Needed For Painesville Course Install! As this gets posted, equipment for the course is starting to roll in. It's a very exciting time for Painesville Disc Golf! That being said, we are in need of help for the course install. We are looking for both experienced and those that have never installed a course before to help. The main duties included mixing and pouring concrete as the City of Painesville will be digging holes for us with an auger. We will also need someone to help mak ... more

Disc golf continues to grow exponentially but under the mainstream radar… This lifestyle sport has everything to do with landscape design, culture and leisure recreation for an increasingly urban world… Anyone interested in this subject should check out this 2013 MLA thesis from Cal Poly Pomona: Disc Golf Course Design: Inscribing Lifestyle into Underutilized Landscapes, for the short, cold months ahead:

Larry, even with baskets being locked they can still be stolen! I'm just saying it might be a good idea to see if anything would happen to a basket maybe the city would cover the cost. Osborne had a basket stolen and it was locked.

Larry Bright Jr.   November 5, 2014 at 4:49pm

of all the courses around, that's the only one i've ever heard of as stolen. i don't think it should be an issue, especially if they are locked.

duane koczan   November 5, 2014 at 5:00pm

We can go back and fourth with comments, the point is if Mickey and surrounding clubs are willing to spend time and possibly own money you need to the possibility of a basket getting stolen. If you can convince the city to cover the lost of a basket then why not? When your planning on something like this you need to think ahead.

Hello. My name is Greg Miller. I have just started playing disc golf this past summer and immediately got hooked! Since playing most of the courses in the area, I have realized there is quite a distance between the local courses. After talking with a few guys about what it takes to get a course installed, I have been in touch with the Painesville Recreation Department as well as Mickey Anderson, who for the last few years, have been trying to accomplish the same thing. Next month we have a ... more
