Showcase the Beauty of Your Land
Disc golf can flow around your property in many ways. A course can be routed to take advantage of unique areas and features of your property. Utilizing areas that may not be well suited for other activities makes disc golf a great way to use a larger portion of your park. Disc golf expands your park’s appeal.
Highlight your park’s unique terrain
Route players to and around interesting geographical features. Variety of terrain can create an exciting course design and boost positive feedback which should increase course visits.

Take advantage of under-utilized areas of the park (floodplain, wooded areas, steep slopes). Displace undesirable activity from an area by adding a frequent traffic stream. Less used parks can get an attendance boost from a well designed course.
Promote your park
List your course on disc golf course directories to draw players from near & far. Host a grand opening event to publicize your new course. Run a charity event on your new course to gain positive media exposure.
Innova Disc Golf has helped put Sgt. Jasper Park (located in Hardeeville, SC) on the map.

It has brought us visitors from up and down the East coast on a daily basis to experience the beauty and splendor of our park.
