Why some holes suck...blame the chucker
 
working on a few new holes now.....unfortunately I have to take the idiot factor into account

picture a sliver of land 500 ft area long between 2 streets I have decided to settle on placing the basket directly equidistant at the 250 ft mark from both streets and try to make a challenging green instead of a 330 foot hole with a picturesque finish at a waterfall and pond......why?
Because idiot players will make up their own tee and play 500 feet from an elevated concrete sidewalk and most likely hyzer into the properties that border the land.

Am I paranoid...no...I walked over 5 people through the area and almost all of them commented "oh man wouldnt it be fun to launch from up here"....even though I think these guys could make the shot its the knuckleheads who cant do it I gotta plan for.....so this is why u often get those why didnt they do more here holes with the long walk past the amazing waterfalls that should be a green :(

Would there be a way to block the desirable-but-sketchy tee pad with foliage? Sounds like a really neat landing zone that I'm sure you don't want to pass up.

It really pains me that I can't trust some players.... I'd have to basically plant a forest of trees and block the view of the stream from the property owners I am trying to not piss off with 20 yr olds who have been playing 2 months and their Apes and Katanas crashing into their bay windows....ugh....trust me its a shame but I can't take the chance

Can you make the waterfall area part of the fairway? Make it like a par 4 to make the long bomber throw less desirable?

optidiscic 11-16-2011 11:02 PM

I am toying with putting a tee near the waterfall and then a 260ish drive...it would not be as cool but at least its somewhat part of the course then

A tee does sound like a good idea, at least it will incorporate the beauty into the course, AND a teepad is basically the least desirable thing for chuckers to throw at. You save the view and the homes!

Would some mandos deter shots from landing into the neighbor's property?

If players don't pay attention to tee locations they certainly won't care about necessarily following mandos or even know what that arrow means.
