Depending on the "look" of all the other holes of the course, maybe it's best to leave as is. In other words, a "totally different" hole may seem out-of-place and weird if it's a certain way 'just...

I think anyone who's seen the Tiki course WOULD be impressed with "his record ON THAT TIKI COURSE". As for "the record of dg holes played in 24 hours", as KniceZ was probably alluding to, any such...

DA,

When a disc hits virtually anything, a spot on the edge "knurls over" a little (sometimes NOT so 'little'). This makes the effective parting line (the spot on the disc's edge which an air...

I'm not thinking you have a "giant 10' run up" (don't know you from Adam); just saying that as a designer, I WILL put in smaller / shorter tee pads on some holes to NOT allow "...a full run up...". ...

Maybe it was the course designer's concept of purposefully having "shorter" tee pads to effect a certain (read: NOT as big a run up a you may like) shot off said tee! Live with it (the length of the...

The OP's bag looks "normal", but I'd add at least 1 really over stable driver (so he can fight a BIG headwind). And no a Wraith is not REALLY OS. In addition, that's assuming he throws...

No it's not Chuck. Yours is based on a linear algorithm and it would need a logistic algorithm to be accurate at both ends. If you scored a -17 on a very easy course you'd get a rating of x. If...

Rob,

To answer your question, it probably comes down to what is the ability of the players that will be playing the hole! To have a 100m+ hole with only a 10-15m wide fairway (after that it's OB)...

You don't have to be sorry, you are what you are (and believe you have to defend yourself to the nth) and we'll have to accept you for such imperfections.
