What has the Portland Disc Golf scene needed most?

Good signage at our premier disc golf course in Portland, Oregon has been at the top of the list for things to do for some time now. Pier Park was established in 2001 and the cement tee pads went in several years later. However, no one stepped up to do tee signs and a welcome kiosk at the course. This has been a huge blot on an otherwise stellar course. In 2009 Alex from Portland Parks and Recreation contacted Stumptown Disc Golf and asked us if we would get behind adding signs to the course. Thanks to Next Adventure putting down most of the money necessary to pay for the signs and talented club members like Kel we were able to complete the tee signs and get the kiosk built in August of 2010. Bryan Knudsen of Next Adventure even took a day off from work and dug holes and assembled the new kiosk along with club board members, Steve Carson and Ryan Gwillim. Portland Disc Golf now has a 5 star disc golf course in the ground, with the addition of the signage. Please consider doing your part to help keep the course in pristine condition by picking up litter as you play and watching for graffiti or other damage to the signs and course.
