How to set a basket on a hill?
 
Ok, so the last hole on my course is on a fairly steep hill. I want to know how I can set the basket (setting in concrete) to make it stay upright and plumb.

This is how we handled the one on the dam at the course I am helping with

Wish that was an option here! That IS legit!

That is freakin sweet. Your other option may be to tier the hill so have a flat surface. Not the whole hill, but the area where the basket is - which would help with possible erosion issues you may have too.

The good thing about texhop's picture is it helps prevent the ground around the basket from eroding away over time, which is a problem on sloped greens and tees on hills.

Retaining walls are effective if well executed.

From what I gather is it was done pretty cheaply by the city. It sits off of dam. The base is roughly 6.5 foot high putting basket right around 7.5 foot high. Hole is only 225 foot long but we felt with trees and uphill putting this was fair. Plus there is a nasty wind off the lake and dam. It may be a project you consider over time. We almost built it on lower land and was going to add it later but city said they wanted it done right when it opened. We were like cool nthe other picture is from above off the dam before it got filled in

If I pitch the erosion part, the guy in charge might go for it. He got his degree in plant ecology, so generally he wants it to be as minimally invasive as possible, but this might be "better for the environment."

That seems to solve a lot of problems, texhop58. Well done.
