Champoeg DGC |New Layout| Upgraded

PacWest is really excited and humbled to be able to assist The Friends of Champoeg Disc Golf on an improvement project of the existing Champoeg Disc Golf Course at Champoeg State Park, Newberg Oregon. The new proposed course design adds to existing property used by the present course layout, the new course design provides Champoeg Disc Golf Course an 18 Hole, Par 58 disc golf course.

Currently, we are waiting for final approval from Oregon State Parks for the new course design.

Champoeg Disc Golf Course was one of the first disc golf courses to be installed in Oregon in 1982. With support from the disc golf community, community groups, and local businesses we will redesign the current course layout, replace all 18 baskets, install 18 concrete tee pads, install all new signage and build a larger course kiosk. PacWest Disc Golf has pledged $5000 to see these improvements of Champoeg Disc Golf Course come to fruition. We hope other Oregon groups and organizations will join with us by supporting this project financially. Champoeg Disc Golf Course is an amazing piece of Oregon’s disc golf history; we hope to honor that history through these improvements to this historical landmark.

Will the area be looked at for future drainage of the fields? Most of the course lays in low land high water table and is notourious for lack of drainage. Good news about course update but just wondering how much consideration is going in to the water issues. Thank you and good job to those involved

There is some talk of using high power sump pumps in the winter time so I don't see flooding an issue

^^^ I have not heard that idea ^^^... Unfortunately the soil is considered histioricaly important... That mandates the soil can not be disturbed. I would like to trench and lay drain lines but they have said no go. Maybe someday but for now the historic value of the soil out ways disc golfers having ... more

Thank you for the response Jason and that is what I figured the answer would probably be. I know of Oregon's history in that area and yes it is important and hopefully something will be allowed to be worked out.

Will you sell off the old baskets to make money for the new ones?
