Fair enough. I've run sanctioned and non-sanctioned tournaments, and there's a place for both.

We've got several blind par-3s which I hope, one day, to create unthrowable peepholes through the woods so that they maintain the flight path, but are no longer quite blind.

A lot of people talk about driving with various winds, but I think the approach shot is the key.

Play cautious and put as many shots within 5' of the pole, where wind won't be a factor on the...

It occurs to me that, by that definition, many of my favorite courses have lots of blind holes. Perhaps, in part, a regional issue of having lots of wooded courses.

But for many of them, you can...

The "Where's the basket" issue, like navigation issues, is only a problem the first time or two you play the course. Good signage helps a lot, and after that you pretty much know. (And, yes, I've...

Even more annoying, and not remedied by signage, is blind holes where, even though you know where the basket is, you may have to search for a disc. Underbrush, slopes, water, etc. O.B. is...

It seems likely. Myself, unless it's a tournament, I don't keep score the first time I visit a course, so I can only reply on my general impression.

You don't have to walk it forwards and backwards. I recommend walking it backwards, and turning around at the tee to look down the fairway.

It may seem odd, but if the course is full of people...

The PDGA has some excellent resources, especially checklists for TDs. You don't have to be sanctioned to use them, and they'll help you prepare for things you haven't thought of.
