Disc Golf Courses in the St Louis Area

Postby gregwil2 on Thu Dec 06, 2012 3:15 pm

Seems like the number of courses in St Louis Area has exploded in the last year and more to be put in (hopefully) soon. Thought I would consolidate a list together to show the progress over the years. I think it is very impressive to see how much the sport has grown in our area in terms of the number of courses.
Are there any others I may have missed, more detailed or incorrect information below. Or others that may have previous existed and were removed? Any stories of courses that would have been that never were?
I think it would be cool to document the history of how disc golf has evolved in the St Louis area. Maybe some of our original players can provide some incite on how thing evolved early on.

Unger Park, 1st Baptist Church in St Charles. Did there used to be one in Washington, MO?

I'm sure you know this, but Unger is permanently gone. Unsuitable land.
If you include it, I suppose it would need to say the date it closed. Also, aren't there a couple of other courses that closed?

Dont forget our private courses. There are at least three I can think of within an hour or so drive of St. Louis. Plus you forgot Rollax2,Farmington,Vichy,Springfield Il.,ect are not a long drive from STL.
And yes there puppet all 3 gflap listed are closed.
Unger-flooding,stolen baskets
Washington-was part of ball golf driving range which closed down in early 90s
Baptist church- closed after a couple of seasons due to smoking,drinking,&swearing(church folk huh)
The "art" of revolution....

I think Greg W has compiled an excellent list. 30 courses within 50 miles is nice.
