Downingtown Disc Golf

$18,355 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 74 people in 19 months
On October 5, 2016, the Downingtown Parks & Recreation committee obtained permission from the Downingtown Borough Council (10-5-16 Council Meeting Minutes ) to construct an 18-hole Disc Golf Course located in Kerr Park. To assist in obtaining funds necessary for construction and annual maintenance, the Downingtown Disc Golf Club (DDGC) created this GoFundMe initiative.

Once construction is complete, the course will be open to the public for free during normal park hours. 

The following packages were created to help us reach our goal of $25,000.

Since we announced the Downingtown Disc Golf Course Project we have heard a lot of great suggestions and a few concerns. Over the last month we have worked to address as many of them as possible so that we can get this project off the ground. As a result, we have reworked our strategy and firmed up our estimates. Initially when we started this project we envisioned having contractors do most of the work, but as the discussion grew within our community we realized that we have plenty of people to help put this course together. Below you will find what we estimate to be the final costs for the project start to finish, assuming we do all the work ourselves, and which part of the course we will complete as we meet the financial goals.

Cost of Construction

• Tee Pads: $152.28 x 18 = $2,741.04
• Baskets: $348.17 x 18 = $6,267.06 + ($2.82 x 36 = $101.52 for concrete) = $6,368.58
• Tee Signs: $40 x 18 = $720.00
• Kiosk: $1,000.00
• Additional Signs: $1,000.00
• Misc. Costs: $2,000.00
• Cost Per Hole: $712.76
• Total Course Cost: $13,829.68
• Fundraising Goal: $15,000

Materials, Vendors and Item Name/Model

• Tee Pads: 4 x 10, 6 inch slab, 54 50LB QUIKRETE bags per hole at $2.82 per bag
• Baskets: Innova Disc Catcher Pro
• Tee Signs: Innova
• Kiosk: Source materials from a local hardware store
• Additional Signs: Innova
• Misc. Costs: Tree Removal, Tree Planting

Once the following amounts have been raised we will that phase of the project.

• $6,500.00: Baskets Installed
• $7,500.00: Additional Signs Installed
• $8,500.00: Kiosk Installed
• $9,220.00: Tee Signs Installed
• $12,000.00: Concrete Tee Pads Installed
• $15,000.00: Tree removal/planting, funding for Replacement Baskets in case of damage, funding for 1st tournament

As of today we have raised $2,815, almost 20% of our new goal! Another $3,685 and we will have baskets!

Now the fun part, we will be announcing our first official Downingtown Disc Golf meeting/work day sometime this week.

Thanks everyone!

I'm interested in the $500 package. Out of curiosity, will construction still take place even if we don't reach the $25k goal?
