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.
