Yep...Ken...I too know some of the powerlines areas are a bit narrow
Paula Jean Park off Rock Road could house a course and support a couple of longer holes. The property is owned by Hillsboro Parks and Rec. Also, the old Orenco Golf Course has been removed...Hillsboro Parks and Rec has some consideration for recreation on that property, but so does home developers I believe...its been too long since I was directly communicating with HPD on the subject.
THPRD or HPD own almost all the park land/greenspaces on the westside.
The way to start getting a course installed is to go to the planning meetings and pleed your case...I know first hand. One issue is, while there are many who want a course, too few are willing to attend these meetings and put in the commitment to getting it done. Unfortunately, it tends to be the same people who are always the ones taking up the cause promoting the sport, Running events, Websites, maintenance, teaching classes etc.
THPRD also has a ton of land at PCC Rock Creek Campus...many baseball fields, soccer fields, tennis courts...why not disc golf?
