I don't run my doubles with a super Cali. I do give Cali an extra drive on the par 4 holes with another shot to be used at their discretion.

Search for a 3" welded ring online for the bottom. I bought mine at a local farm supply. Use S hooks to attach at the bottom and top. Keeping the inner chains short will save money on chain and still...

Had a friend bring one over to set up an extra hole at my course last week. It worked fine but for what you are doing, more people will be after that DGA basket.

The number plate is an add on. My Liberty doesn't have one. I like the basket but it is painted and will show its age much sooner than a galvanized basket. The Basket is a little shallow compared to...

If you want Galvanized, and I think you do, the lower cost options are the Mach II and the DB-5. Mach II is "better" but if you want something that you can pull apart with no tools and put in the...

I don't think it is possible to beat a course but I feel like I got beaten if I don't card a birdie.

I didn't modify my DB until I had my course. It was almost better without inner chains because it made less noise. Super easy to add chains to it. "S" hooks at the top and bottom. 2/0 straight link...

If you rotate the top 180 deg and use the set screw against the pole and not where a hole is, you will eliminate the wobble.

Great effort. If you do it again I'd recommend putting the inner set of chains loose on that inner ring instead of the 'spoke' so that it fills the gap between the outer set of chains.

Discatcher, It catches well and is highly visible. The only down side is they are more prone to graffiti than the mach III.
/I think the Mach V catches better than the III.

I was a fan of bill Allen DGC but it is bookended by Lake Lewisville and Towne Lake that both have active local crews with minis going on. More shade in McKinney and no mud at the lake.
