  • How Many Courses in Oregon are PDGA Gold Tee Standard?

    Looking to find out how many and which courses in Oregon qualify as Gold Tees 1000 Rated.
    thanks, Bob

    Good question. I actually had to go look this one up. Anyone who want to read what he's talking about can look here Course Standards.

    Offhand... I would say only the two BSF courses at Milo McIver truly qualify.

    A few other courses that could get there would be Dexter, Whistler's Bend, Trojan and Adair.

    If you build it... etc...

      Bob, if you're planning to have your third course meet this standard, please tell us you'll include short tees as well, for us mere mortals!

          Back off! There's already two short courses out there.

              Hey, I'm not saying you shouldn't have your 9,000-foot course. But with a little extra gravel and a few more logs embedded in the ground, it could be a lot more enjoyable for a lot more people...

                  If Bob wants to build a complete package, he would be wise to follow the lead to the gold standards. 3 completely diffrent courses on one spot of land, holy toledo, people from all over would fly in to play this baby heh... The first course is around 4900 feet, the 2nd course is like 2500? Yeah I think the 3rd course should be 7000 like the Gold standard says. Then there can be a work party to put in the shorter tees for those that "want" it. The milo courses are around 8200-8400 each.
                  However, I have not seen the land that the 3rd course will be on and have a hard time imagining a milo sized course minus 1000 feet on Horning's, but I sure do imagine a killer 6000 footer for sure...

                    C'mon, seriously, what's the percentage of disc golfers in Oregon who'd really rather play 500-foot holes than 300- or 400-foot ones? I think they're overrepresented on this forum.

                      Reason I was asking was because I would like to build the next one up to gold tee standards, though it looks like it doesn't mean it will be a 9,000 course, a 6,500 ft course could be gold rated if through heavy woods. I am planning on getting the next course there (gold rated), along with cement tee pads and the targets certified by PDGA. Also by the time the ODDGA plays in May, I plan on having several holes on the original course lengthened like we've talked about, making that a true par three/four course, and yes, eventually get better gravel trails and cement tee pads there too.

                        I think we all figured that's why you were asking. So... any chance of also having non-gold tees on Course #3?

                            Most of the holes will be between 300 and 400 feet, with three being longer (one is about 1,050). The reason they would be gold standard is not because of length, but because of both length and technical difficulty (woods). but yes, on some of the longest holes we may be able to have a few non-gold tees.

                              450 x 3 = 1350
                              400 x 4 = 1600
                              350 x 3 = 1050
                              300 x 3 = 900
                              250 x 3 = 750
                              200 x 2 = 600
                              = 6250

                              The longest holes would only be 450 feet. Those holes would help everyone, smart control would get you the par.
