    And BTW, on a separate note, I have a good friend who works at/for the Parklands of Floyds Fork, and he has told me several times that a disc golf course is in their plans. Unfortunately though, it's apparently part of the last phase.

    This obviously doesn't satisfy the op's desire (and mine) to have a course "inside the watterson x-way," but it's worth noting.

I live right off Poplar Level, a few blocks from the Zoo, so the drive to GRC would obviously be very optimal for me. I actually do go there sometimes to play tennis and basketball. It's a nice place but not too big. I've never really ventured to the "wooded" areas though or anyplace another than the courts. I'm guessing only a 9 hole course would work well.

    I don't know for certain, but I would imagine some people have been against it because St X I know uses the park for their cross country practices and other sports too I think. Some other schools around there might use the park too. Parking could be a challenge as well, because it can get a little congested around there with cars. I know some X students park over there. And I bet the neighbors around there have voiced opposition also. Above all, I just doubt that the course is big enough to have a good, safe course without taking up too much of the space there, and thus interfering with other people's interests.
    I use to live right near there too and have gone out and made a safari course there. There's easily enough land for 18 holes with only minimal interruption from the other sport courts though I can't say for the cross country runners. I started "my" course back near the soccer field near where Filson Ave. turns into French Ave. and made a complete loop around the park for 18 holes.
    All I need is some tasty waves and a cool buzz and I'm all right.

    I backhand as a hobby, I putt to pay the bills.

    That's cool. I guess I really haven't checked out the park enough.

    I should start going up there to toss around the disc anyways. I usually go to Joe Creason though since it's closer for me.

    I had always wanted to go throw over there, especially down that huge hill but every time I had thought about it while driving by it was packed with pedestrians. Same thing with some of the big hills are Cherokee.

    It's funny how a few people have mentioned playing their own made up course at George Rogers Clark. Daniel and I went there once and made our own as well and it was great fun. Who knows, maybe some holes/ideas we had were similar.

    Maybe when the city gets an idea of how much money comes in from the Masters they may be a bit more receptive to the idea of funding new courses.
