This Yaheetech portable disc golf basket is definitely designed to be used on the go.  This portable basket weighs just under 19 lbs and comes in a foldable design that allows you to take it on the go! This makes it one of the best to just throw in your trunk and go!

This portable disc golf basket features a superior design quality with a nice iron frame and a galvanized finish which gives it the durability to stand up to pretty much anything!  When I was first thinking about a portable basket I was concerned about the stability and durability of the basket, but I was completely wrong about this basket.

It features a rounded stand with tri level support which ensures that this basket isn’t moving!  Along with this, it features a 12 piece chain above the 25.7 inch basket.  Overall this basket is pretty much indistinguishable from the kinds you’ll see on your regular disc golf course.

One of the best things about this portable disc golf basket is it’s easy installation and assembly.  I can easily set this basket up in under 10 minutes.   It comes in 7 total pieces and also features a traveling bag for easy transportation.  Overall this gets a 10/10 for ease of installation and assembly, after you do it once, you can do it in your sleep!

The only real downside of this basket is that because the base is a circular stand, if you are placing it on un-level ground then the basket can wobble or be unsteady.  Unfortunately this is a problem with a lot of portable baskets, because the only way to make the baskets 100% secure is by attaching it to the ground some how.


  • Portable and lightweight designed baskets
  • Manufactured out of high quality iron with a galvanized finish for added durability
  • Wide circular base helps to improve stability
  • Extremely easy to assemble and install
  • Standard sized basket


  • Tends to wobble if not placed on level ground due to the circular base.
  • Only features 12 high quality chains, while standard professional baskets feature at least 18.

MVP Black Practice Disc Golf Basket – 24 Chain

If you are someone that wants their basket to be as close to the professional quality you’ll see on your course, then you have to check out MVP’s Black Practice Disc Golf Basket.

The previous basket we reviewed featured only 12 chains, while this MVP basket features 24.  This ensures that the basket and chain layout is essentially exactly the same as what you’ll experience out on the course.  This basket features 12 inner chains and 12 outer chains which helps to ensure that your disc catches in the chains instead of flying right through.

This entire practice basket meets the PDGA basket specifications, which means practicing on this basket will transfer over to the course baskets exactly!  Although this basket meets these specifications it also comes in a more portable design than standard baskets.

This basket is another great choice due to it’s ease of installation and assembly.  They claim that it takes under 1 minute to assembly and installation, and although that might be a slight exaggeration, it is that easy.  Although this basket is slightly heavier than the last basket, it also feels a bit sturdier.  I’ve left this goal up in pretty heavy winds and it hasn’t tipped over or wobbled, so I would say it’s definitely more stable and sturdy.


  • Affordable price
  • PDGA approved
  • Wide circular base and slightly heavier weight helps to improve stability even during high winds
  • Extremely easy to assemble and install, with assembly reported in less than a minute.
  • Features 24 chains, 12 inner and 12 outer just like your standard course basket.

Installation and Assembly:

Overall the assembly and installation is still quite simple.  The main pipe breaks down into two pieces, and the basket, chains, and stand easily attach.  You will need a screw driver to assemble and disassemble this basket, and it will take about 5 total minutes.  Overall this 5 part assembly really isn’t too tricky or cumbersome.

Driftsun Portable Disc Golf Basket Goal

If you’re looking at pure value for the money, then I’d definitely have to recommend this portable disc golf basket by Driftsun.  Compared to other lightweight designs on the market, this basket perfectly combines lightweight and high quality.

Installation and Assembly:

Similar to others, this installation is extremely easy, and can be done in mere minutes.  Along with this, this basket doesn’t require any additional tools for installation which makes it great for just throwing it in your trunk and not having to worry about anything else.

From a pure value perspective this basket should be very high on your list.  It’s very reasonably priced and it’s made of galvanized steel which means that it’s completely weather resistant and extremely durable.  This means you could technically use these baskets as permanent holes and leave them outside 24/7.  Driftsun is really known for their high quality for a fair price and this portable basket really is no exception.

The only drawbacks I can see with this goal is that due to it having a circular portable base, it can be tough to place on non-level ground, but that is the case with most portable goals.  The only other downside is that it comes with only one set of chains (external) rather than featuring both an external and internal set of chains.  That being said, you can actually attach a second set if you have the right tools.


  • Very lightweight and portable
  • PDGA approved
  • High quality craftsmanship and materials
  • Very quick and easy assembly


  • Only features external chains rather than external and internal
  • Due to the circular base it can be tough to place on un-even ground

“Best Choice Products” Portable Disc Golf Basket

The entire goal is made of solid constructed steel which makes it quite durable, while still being very portable.  Along with this, it features a galvanized finish that helps to protect it from any types of weather.  This means you can leave it outside without having to worry about rust or anything like that.

This basket is designed very similar to our other items on this list and features a circular base which helps to keep the basket stable and in place.  That being said, one of the main drawbacks of this basket is that it features only one set of chains, rather than featuring an internal and external set of chains.  Along with this, technically this basket is slightly shorter than regulation sized baskets, although it is close.  So if you are dead set on wanting it to be exact, then I would suggest another basket.


  • Very lightweight and portable
  • Solid design and materials
  • Very easy to assembly and install


  • Only comes with one set of chains rather than featuring external and internal chains
