Manufactured by the Disc Golf Association (DGA) and invented by the sports founder Ed Headrick in 1975, the disc pole hole is the best disc golf target on the market.  Constructed of galvanized steel that is maintenance free, DGA targets look and perform like new from the day they are installed.  Disc Golf Consultants offers 4 different DGA targets to accommodate your budget and facility:

Tee Pads

boxDisc golf course tee pads may be constructed out of a variety of different material.  Determining what type of tee pad to build is usually based on volume of usage expected and cost.  Tee pads range from high maintenance natural turf, wood chips or crushed granite to very low maintenance screed concrete.  Shape is usually rectangular with more emphasis on a trapezoidal design with the wider edge along the back edge of the tee pad  narrowing towards the front. Other emerging tee pad mediums include rubber mats.  Design standards encourage tee pads that are at least 12 feet long by 6 feet wide (front) by 9 feet wide (back). 

Signs

Tee signs and directional signs are an important component of a disc golf course.  They aid player’s in traversing the course and in shot selection.  Other signs that aid in play include rule signs, out-of-bounds signs and mandatory signs. A course map sign located at the beginning of a course gives a great overview of the layout. An optional bulletin board located near the first tee can be very useful to local disc golf clubs for posting tournament, league, and other disc golf related information.

Sign requirements and installation methods will vary from course to course.
