There's plenty here in Rochester, as others have stated.  Basil Marella in Greece is my home course - very wooded.  I enjoy running the wide-open (but relatively short) Ellison Park course.

 

Since I play Ultimate, I also have (at least so far) refused to adopt real disc golf discs, instead playing with a "lid" (lid = Ultimate disc, the Discraft Ultrastar).

 

I played club ultimate in college, and I still play club on fairly competitive teams (not elite), as well as the leagues here in Rochester.

Ultimate would have been fun before I picked up cigs. No chance I could run with you fellas now. I would like to watch a match, but I'll stick with a stroll through my local park.

I guess that's what disc golf boils down to for a lot of folks...it's stress free competition. A little more athletic than shooting pool or bowling, LOL.

When we played years and years ago we make our own courses.  "Ok hole 3.  See that oak tree over there?  No not that one, the one to the left."  When I was in a park one day and saw a proper frisbee golf course with those basket things I said "I'm out"

My college ultimate team had an 18-hole "campus course", basically an organized version of what you said; the pins are tables, grills, lamp posts, trees, sculptures, signs, hydrants, drainage pipes, etc.  And of course, hole 18 was to to tag the scoreboard at the other end of the football field -- with the mandatory such that you must go through at least one of the field goals posts!

 

We also had to play late at night (tee time 12am) to minimize the amount of pedestrian traffic getting in our way.  Or, send the rookies out to play defense on the bystanders!  :w00t:

 

As I understand it, a lot of college ultimate teams have some defined course like this through their campuses.

I've been playing 9 holes during lunch - every day last week and today. I've dropped one point every day, and today I threw my first par since I stopped playing years ago.

Other guys go for walks at lunch around the airport or through the ghetto. I prefer the city park. I log about 2 miles on nine holes in around 45 minutes. My back is hurting less than last week too. God I'm out of shape.

Fudge. My elbow hurts, but I just threw a disc 400 ft. The rest of my game was not great, but damn I nailed that one tee off. Also lost a disc in the creek, dammit.
