2001: Badlands Birth

BY: Ronnie Ross     ronnie@badcodisc.com

Ronnie Ross began dropping off literature at Hyland Hills Park and Recreation District regarding disc golf shortly after BADCO was formed. Almost one year later Ronnie received a phone call from Hyland Hills asking what ‘this disc golf thing is about’. After a brief explanation, they asked BADCO to look at a park they had and we did the very next day.

We walked up to the pavillion, peered over the first hill and knew that had to be hole one. From there it took several weeks to walk the course time and time again to develop a good layout. After 20-30 revisions, we settled on the layout that exists today. The course layout included the placement of trees, benches, tee boxes and 57 basket positions.
