you still around?
I will be in Sequim this weekend, may try and play Friday or Saturday if weather permits
there is now a park in Sequim/Carlsborg
it's on the south side of HWY 101, between Carlsborg rd and KitchenDick rd
I started a thread about it in the new parks section: http://nwdiscgolfnews.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8797&highlight=sequim

This is interesting.
If the location is what I think it is, the area had been a former golf driving range. And now operated by a progressive looking(?) church? That's been my assessment of that land plot from past drive bys.
From the aerial, there is not a ton of space, and that might even get a little more cramped by the near presence of the highway. But who knows. Let us know what you find.
However, keep in mind, there are quite a few places (including churches or church camps) that have sometimes have DG baskets that are viewable, and it doesn't always mean that its always public playable.
There's a big difference.
It's kind of like driving down the road and seeing a really rad swingset of your dreams in a playground next to some building.
Or a great firepit, well done basketball court, or a sweet looking fishin' pond.
Check it out, ask, and then and only then you can maybe gain permission to use.
The Sequim area is definitely a great locale for DG to gain a great course. DG has faced challenges in the past to that end, but someday the right combo of course and property will happen.

Man, don't get me started on the disc golf situation up there. When I lived up there and a group of us proposed a DG course, the county was totally on board to INSTALL and FUND a course at Robin Hill Farm Park, which is a 200 acre park very close to this location on the map. A small group of equestrians and dog walkers banded together and shot us down with a mis-informed propaganda campaign, and the commissioners caved because it was an election year and they were being threatened with their jobs. Four years later and you still have a 200 acre park with virtually NO ONE using it. I am glad that some guys in Port Angeles finally got the CITY to install a 9 holer, but that whole situation is what caused me to pack my bags and move to Kitsap Co., where I couldn't be happier with the DG situation. BTW, this is the short version. Rant over.
