  1. 1. Proposal for the Installation of a 18-Hole Disc Golf Course at Junipero Serra Park, Version 2.0 Presented by The Peninsula Disc Golf Club, April 7 th 2011
  2. 2. What Is Disc Golf? <ul><li>Disc Golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of hitting a ball into a hole, you throw a disc into a metal basket. The goal is the same: to complete the course in the fewest number of shots. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Who Can Play? <ul><li>The simple answer is that everyone can. </li></ul><ul><li>Men and women, young and old, families with small children-- all can play disc golf. Because disc golf is so easy to understand and enjoy, no one is excluded. Players merely match their pace to their capabilities and proceed from there. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Disc Golf At Junipero Serra Park <ul><li>The Peninsula Disc Golf Club is proposing the installation of an 18-hole Disc Golf course in and around the meadow view parking area. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Why Disc Golf at Junipero Serra Park? <ul><li>Let’s give people another reason to get outside and away from the TV. </li></ul><ul><li>Environmentally low impact and does not require pesticides, herbicides, or any major construction </li></ul><ul><li>Gifted in kind and all maintenance will be performed by the Peninsula Disc Golf Club on a scheduled basis. </li></ul><ul><li>Estimated $45,000 - $100,000 a year in parking revenue and annual passes. </li></ul><ul><li>New community of stakeholders will emerge, strengthening the park’s long term viability </li></ul><ul><li>Opportunity to engage and teach a new segment of the population about natural and human history </li></ul>
  6. 6. Recreational Needs <ul><li>Inexpensive form of recreation for people of all age and skill levels. </li></ul><ul><li>Important recreational resource for the schools surrounding the park, as well as for the community. </li></ul><ul><li>Peninsula Disc Golf Club will organize clinics, youth leagues, and tournaments. </li></ul><ul><li>For the growing number of disc golfers in the Bay Area, the presence of a 18-hole disc golf course on the peninsula would obviate the need to travel to play (to Golden Gate Park, Berkeley, or San Jose). </li></ul>
  7. 7. We Have Created a Plan that Addresses the Concerns of the Community <ul><li>200 Foot Buffer from Private Property </li></ul><ul><li>Planting hundreds of natives prior to construction </li></ul><ul><li>wooden retaining walls, and paths of travel defined </li></ul><ul><li>Terraces/Steps </li></ul><ul><li>Three basket locations and will get rotated on a regular basis </li></ul><ul><li>Scheduled work parties every other month </li></ul>
  8. 8. Tees <ul><li>Each hole would have one tee box. The tee box would be made of an 5’1” x 10’1” redwood framed box filled with drain rock, compacted decomposed granite, and a ½’ thick non slip recycled rubber mat. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Baskets <ul><li>Baskets are the targets in the sport of disc golf </li></ul><ul><li>Secured in the ground via anchors and padlocks </li></ul><ul><li>Little to zero maintenance through time </li></ul>
  10. 10. Stairs/Terraces <ul><li>Easy to install, little maintenance over time </li></ul><ul><li>Effective against erosion </li></ul><ul><li>Fits nicely into the landscape! </li></ul>
  11. 11. Signs <ul><li>Signs are very important to help users find their way through the course. </li></ul><ul><li>Each hole would have a sign indicating the number, length, and par. Included within these signs would be interpretive information. </li></ul><ul><li>In addition, a rules sign, course map and information board would be installed before the first hole. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Park Safety <ul><li>Influx of purposeful visitors would discourage the presence of individuals who are only in the park to cause mischief and perhaps engage in crime. </li></ul><ul><li>Course Designed with safety for all park users as utmost goal </li></ul>
  13. 13. Funding for a Disc Golf course at Junipero Serra Park <ul><li>The Peninsula Disc Golf Club will provide funds for the installation through private donations. </li></ul><ul><li>Estimated cost is about $45,000 </li></ul><ul><li>Building would take approximately 6 months via weekend work parties </li></ul>
