Discatcher Basket – Are there truly no free plans for a DIY portable disc golf basket on the Internet? How do the fold-up portables hold up over time if you actually fold them up and transport them? Part of me wants something for home use that’s as close as I can portably get to one of the pro baskets at the typical courses, but another part of me keeps imagining trying to stuff something in the nearly full car when heading to the campsite.
But another part of me is intrigued by the lack of (free) plans for a good DIY portable on the Internet if that is the case. Fisher price or little tike’s adjustable indoor/outdoor discatcher basket. You can fill the base of these with water or sand, and they should with stand even the most killer of putt. Plastic garden border is usually available in black, green, or terra cotta from local home improvement/landscaping outfitters.
This stuff is light but should be durable enough to be used as the frame of the discatcher basket (top and bottom parts of the basket). You could cut the garden border to the proper lengths, leaving an extra inch or two for some bolts to be used to fasten the ends together, forming a hoop. Used one hoop for the top and another for the bottoms. Drill holes through the hoops and place eye bolts through the holes at regular intervals around the circumference.
