That's more or less how I felt. Some 20 years ago, as soon as I found out there was an organization, I wanted to join and be part of it. I stayed, even in the years I was injured and couldn't play....

If you back up the 15 tee, you could have another water-carry option, with what appear to be large trees defining the route.

One aspect I like in this design is that the shared baskets are...

My advice would be to shorten the layout. As drawn, it averages 292' per hole. I'd prefer a 9-hole course averaging, say, 220', than a 6-hole course averaging 300'.

The polls can be interesting....they just don't accurately reflect the DGCR membership. Only the people interested in responding.

3, 8, 9....

3 looks like if you pull it right, even a little short, you'll be in the cul-de-sac where the satellite picture shows a car parked.

9 is drawn beyond a fence, though it looks like...

Shoelaces.

I didn't have any shoes without laces when I had shoulder surgery---still don't, for that matter---which left me the choice of finding some adult-sized sneakers with Velcro, like a...

I'm not sure what percentage of DGCR users are tournament players---are PDGA tournament players---but at any rate, this thread is unlikely to be a representative sample of DGCR users.

Also, though you've got short tees, they are all set where someone playing them has long transitions, and pretty much walks as far as someone playing the long tees.

I assume you're assuming empty parking lots when play.

You've got baskets awful close to property lines and people's yards---a recipe for disaster.

My suggestion is to start over and present to...

What a thread drift. We're not talking politics, we're talking Pokémon.

Myself, I've had a string of injury-imposed vacations from disc golf. I found that, after being forced out of playing for a while, I'm more grateful to be able to play.

Yeah, a change, one way or the other.

Change the disc golf you play. Instead of tournaments, play casual, play league, play 1-disc rounds, explore new courses, play safari golf (if possible),...

Overkill, for starters.

If the basket is obvious, either by being the only possible one, or with a really good tee sign, it hardly needs a readable number. And for really long numbers, that...

Thanks. I like the color-coded arrows.

(Though the "17" sign might be a bit excessive. I hope it's durable because it must get pelted by low shots.)

I'm a big fan of signs being on the baskets so you don't have to look around for them. 90% of the time, just getting started in the right direction is all you need. It also makes them less subject...

Courses around here have colored one bar of the bottom of the basket to point in the direction of the next tee.

The catch is, players have to realize that, for it to be useful.
