  • Info. to get a course in LIncoln City!

    I have been trying to push the city of Lincoln City,OR into getting a course, but it seems to be back firing every time. I have recently got in contact with some folks with the State Parks and they do not have enough funds for the initial set-up for the course. I am trying to find some recreation, disc golf, etc. grants/funds and hoping someone out there has some useful information for me. I am really hoping to build a top of the line course here and please contact me either on here or email: jholtz@lincolncity.org Thanks, Jamison aka Luvjam to Wilcox & Hayden

    I think we might have an inside track within state parks... Let me reach out again to them? If you don't mind me doing that?

      Get in touch with local clubs like Stumptown Disc Golf and Disc Golf or Die. Local clubs raise money and install courses and course improvements. A number of area courses have been paid for and/or installed partially or entirely by the disc golf community! Many clubs make course creation and installation part of their mission statements.
      Ratings-based divisions: disc golf's inevitable future.

        The tough part is securing the land. If the State Parks dept is willing to give you a place to play you're halfway there. As Treelove mentioned, there are several ways to raise money for the course.

          I just moved to Toledo Oregon from Portland so I'm totally down for helping out here. I hear there is some community out here so it's getting them organized into a league with part of it being fundraising or running fundraising tournaments. I've played in fund leagues and ran multiple tournaments so let me know how I can help!

          The land is the hard part. The work is the fun part when that work is Disc Golf!

            The land is pretty much good to go, the funds just need to be there. I just don't know if the clubs in the Portland, Salem, Eugene areas would want to spend their funds on a course on the coast. Does anyone have contact info. for these folks?

              Why not start your own club and fundraising effort? You'll get the best results by going local.

                  I guess I have a few people that I play these pieces of property with as object courses. But what is the best way to fundraise without a course? Not many people know what disc golf is on the coast...

                    As both a Stumptown Disc Golf member and DGOD member I know a lot of the Portland Area people. We have courses near by and people play them- Wilder in Newport and a few in Corvallis. If you have the land we need to find portable baskets (I have 1- net not metal sadly).

                    Fundraising can be through club dues, bag tags, disc sales, weekly leagues, tournaments, hole sponsorships... lots of options. Let's get together and chat. This was a goal of mine after moving out here.

                      I also heard a rumor there was a group trying to get one set up in Toledo, OR. 3 Coastal courses means someone in the area is playing! Also, 3 courses in one area is a much bigger draw than 1... sounds like we definitely have interest.

                        If you have the land, a good idea for your course development is to build 18 bucket targets. These can be moved around to explore the possibilities available on your land. It allows you to design your course, explore the flow of play, explore second pin positions and allows you to have a course to play while doing your fund raising for the permanent equipment. See attachment for Bucket Target Plan.

                            I'm down! Who wants to spear head this (the person who knows the person who has the land)?
