Dauphin Island, AL getting DG course? Rumor or truth?

I'm hearing scuddlebut that the recently closed Dauphin Island ball golf course is going to be developed into an awesome disc golf course/retreat. Multiple layouts of 18, restaurant, camping, etc...
Can anyone shed any light on this topic? Rumor? Truth? If it is so, is the MADGA club involved and is there anyway that those of us who are interested can volunteer or contribute in any way?
Thanks in advance for any information.

Truth.
This is what's happening for everone to know. DI courses will be opening in a few months. No official date set yet. But I will post ASAP. 2 courses have been flagged and will range between 21 and 24 holes. Some holes will have two T-boxes and some holes will have different pin placements. There are water hazards, trees, elevation changes and the most crucial is the wind. There will be a restaurant, golf carts to rent, beer, and a minimal fee to play. There is also a pool and beach access for the families. As far as camping goes it wont be on the golf couse. There is camping at Forts Gaines. Not to mention they have rental houses.

Please dont go out and bombard DI trying to help at this time. There are certain people involed and the City still has to approve the official closing of the ball course and the opening of a DGC.

Once authorized I will post if anyone wants to volunteer

It's my understanding that with the new volunteer group currently keeping the ball golf course going, that they hope to continue to do so running both types of golf all summer. This location is incredible by the way as it is directly on the Gulf of Mexico - unbelievable views. Disc golf will be a welcome addition to the Island and there is the campground at Fort Gaines as well as several condo and vacation rentals that will work with 2 night minimums. The Chamber website: www.dauphinislandcoc.com has more info on the Island and what else is available out here.

That's great news to hear. I plan on being there for vacation the first week of June. I guess thats a little to early to play golf, but I would like to come by and check it out. Who knows I might get lucky and get to play. If there is anyone I can contact to go check it out please let me know. Looking forward to another disc golf addition, thats going to be a great location.

They want to be up and running by May now, but I cant get a response from them. I was supposed to go there today for a meeting but have had returned calls or emails.
As soon as I get some feedback, I will post immiediatly Everyone was on fire for this project, but for some reason it has started to fizzle out. It could be because of the backlash from the golfers. I say to them, throw a disc, throw away your clubs.

I'm on my way back from the DI Golf Course public beach. The lady who took our money ($3 per adult on weekends) said that part of that money is going toward the course. She said they are "working with a firm" who has big plans, but the course(s) aren't going to be ready until the fall.

The ball golf course is closing. They want the Disc couse to come but they want someone to rent out the pro-shop and run the disc course from there. I have phone numbers if anyone is interested in doing this. The Island is on board and so are local shops. The shops are willing to invest but this would be a tough thing to run.

PM me if you have questions or want phone numbers.
