old pike going private?
« on: January 21, 2011, 08:15:23 PM »
Okay, so I stopped on by Old Pike on Monday, and was slightly amused at the 'No Trespassing' sign stapled to the bench on hole one.  There was also a laminated sign stating that you have to have a member to old pike discgolf club ($50 a year) to throw there or you will be kicked out, and your car "will be towed at owners expense".  Seriously?  I was the only person there, so I was not concerned about getting towed, but is this a serious threat that is going to be backed by the prestigious Old Pike country club?  Just curious...
Boom goes the Dynamite!

Yes, it's for real. And if one had actually played a round there, after reading the posted notice, which I'm not saying is the case because I wasn't there, but if that is what had happened, one would then be guilty of trespassing. Hope this helps!

I can't answer your question but I will say that if private disc golf courses are ever going to come into existence they will have to fund themselves somehow. I suspect Old Pike spent some money to build that course, baskets, mowing and other amenities cost money. Public parks get tax funds from all of us hard working citizens, Old Pike has to pay for those things themselves. Private courses such as Old Pike, the now defunct Ted's Dread and others have perks to offer those that want to pay to play on a private course that one can't legally get away with in most public parks. I'm all for the prolification of private courses but I'm also aware that they have to be paid for somehow. If I had time and lived close enough to play Old Pike on a regular basis I'd gladly kick in $50, assuming the course is worth it. From what I've heard it is.

No, just about 2 miles north of Water Works behind the Home Depot on North Oak and Vivion.
