Don't tempt me, Cuz ! I have woods, creeks, a back meadow, and several hills on almost 10 acres. I could make a 9 hole course if I was that ambitious but I built it for practice. There are quite a few courses in the area with four being very close. Here are a couple more pics for those interested in making one of these baskets.

Hmm...I know there's at least one in this town about a mile from here.If i come across a good frisbee at the thrift stores...guess I'll pick one up and see how I do someday... :mrgreen:
I think the last frisbee I bought was about 4 years ago..one of the professional models still in the original shrinkwrap and cardboard backing dated in the 70s..I sold it on ebay to a guy in Belgium for $12+... :lol:
Somewhere I have an old whamo boomerang..can I use that?Might be kind of hard to make par... unless I stand next to the cup.. :lol:

I have one of the old 70's model frisbees. They just don't compare to the newer disc when it comes to distance and characteristics. I played a couple rounds with the old frisbee and finally broke down and bought a 3 disc set......NEW ! :o :o
