Yes sorry missed the link, the one I was "promoting" is
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Disc_golf_course but I believe that
"sport=disc_golf" also would be good. I am after the physical tag.
Disc golf is similar in many respects to golf. A course is often 9 or
18 "holes". I atleast use the word "holes" in disc golf (maybee
because I play "real" golf too) even if the "holes" are baskets. There
is also a tee just as in golf. Yes you do not use a club and ball but
instead an arm and a disc (frisbee) but the idea is the same. Get the
object into the "hole" in as few tries as possible.

Best Regards Tobias
