This particular mando was a thought I had for how to make a more interesting hole, first and foremost. There is a side benefit that it discourages big sky hyzers that may put another tee pad in play.

Wow. Thanks for your insight! Did not expect to find someone who had an example of my imagined hole from practice! I think you and a few others who have commented have convinced me that retee is a...

You can see the other tee that is being "protected" on the far right of the picture. there is a little white spot against a dark tree/bush. That is the white paint at the top of the tee sign.

Thanks for your feedback. The retee was my initial gut choice because it is a short hole (about 265 feet) and the tree is only 40 feet from the basket. That said, I'm open to other design options.

Great question. I think the rule would be retee for tee shot and then for all other shots there would be a drop zone that would put you at about a 45 foot putt? Not sure. what do you think makes...

Mando far down the fairway - ok or not?

Pretty simple design question. I have never designed a course before but have played about 80 courses. I am helping give advise on some redesign at a local course that is on a multi-course park. The...

Indeed. Not sure why we have to jump to paint a company as evil just because a side benefit of any action may be a little bit of advertising for them. Offering a reward (and giving McBeth a free...

I don't doubt that any of that is true. I just think that if PDGA had similar "best effort" rules to what I understand the ATP (tennis) has, then switching to off-hand when down many strokes would be...

Cool. I am just trying to be really careful not to have too many molds. Adding the Thunderbird puts me at 9 total molds. Not sure if that is a good number or too many.

Often trying to return a disc gets you a good story or maybe a new friend, or maybe the person will say "keep it" which feels nice too. I don't see the problem with at least calling anytime you have...

A ton of people in my area of texas thrown Discraft mids and putters. I think they do pretty well in their disc golf lineup just off of those.

Field practice yesterday gave me an intro to the new discs but not enough to know how I will use them in a round. I am playing a mini on Saturday and will have them in my bag.

This makes sense now that you say it. I'm wondering if maybe I will need my Orcs still, or if there is no point adding the new discs since my Orcs fly well for me at that speed. Will have to give it...

Do y'all think I have too much overlap if I add thunderbirds (which I already purchased) to my bag? It seems like they fit between my less beefy teebirds and my beefier glow teebird.

Except that in this context it was mentioned that Bradley Williams switches to off hand when he knows he is out of contention. That doesn't sound like choosing the best available option to me.

I think it is hard to know without seeing financials from the companies, which are obviously not public. It would be interesting to see if Gateway sales changed after JohnE McCray started his success...

Isn't throwing with your offhand deliberately not giving best effort and equivalent to throwing the round? Aren't there rules against that kind of behavior? Seems odd.
