    Mostly because the course will not start and/or end right next to any of the existing parking lots and the school doesn't want to use the student/teacher parking lots for non-school parking.

    When you look at the cost of installing a disc golf course, you aren't talking about that much money. But to put in a paved parking lot would cost more than the amount we would use to buy/install the baskets and 'build' the course.

    Then there is the 'sexy' factor. When asked to give money to sponsor a basket on a new course you're more likely to get a yes; does that fly as well when you need to ask for money to build a parking lot for said course?

    I was hoping that a glorified 'wide spot in the road' approach would work best, but we are probably looking at a major development. A paved parking lot on the corner of Troutdale Rd & CochranRd/Sweetbriar Rd may be the solution.

    It is my understanding that with the addition of a parking lot some city planning or traffic studies etc will have to take place.

    I'm pretty inspired by what I saw today. The options are just endless. BUT, get your machetes sharpened up and your clippers out. There will be a lot of blackberry cutting and brush/tree trimming. We weren't able to walk the whole thing because of blackberries blocking the "fairway". My next visit will be with machete in hand.

    Who said it wasn't? I'm much happier to hear about Mt. Hood C.C. than Stewart. But I'm still hoping for something LESS than half an hour from my house....

    Just a heads up though, just because they ok'd a course, don't expect to go out there next week and play golf. A lot of money is going to need to be raised and a LOT of labor prepping the course. As I understand it, hole sponsorships will be sold for $500, to include basket, tee pad, and tee signs. I'm going out to meet up with Jordan and Keith to walk the area this afternoon.

    AND we can't neglect the work already underway on Stubb Stewart. In the coming months/year, we are going to need every disc golfer we can get, to help out on work parties.
