I don't know what approach you have taken with the campus. When I was attending Western Illinois a course was installed on the campus. The party invovled in presenting the course to the rec department of the school had an excellent pitch. We stressed the possibility of intramural oppurtunities, encouraging students to stay on campus on the weekends, another PE class to offer, another activity other than "drinking" (this is a tough sale), and it was an oppurtunity for the school to sell discs in the book store, as well as some others. It was important to share how the school was going to benefit. It also helped that one of the big wigs in the intramural department played disc golf.
You may have already done all of this, but it is what helped us get the course installed, and the results were phenominal. The school benefits, so we all win. One thing that was stressed a lot from the school was that we had to have trash cans (trash was a big concern) at every hole (only nine holes). I think this helped at first, but only became a burden later because drunks on the weekends would be walking home and knocking them over.
Unfortunately some are not as excepting as others. A lot of times it's who you know, not what you know.
