I'm thinking about running one of these on a course that is almost finished. I'm thinking it might be a good way to introduce people to a course that is a bit remote. My chief concern is that it's...

I just realized that the old course layout is the first RIP course on my played list. I'm glad it's being replaced by two courses, not just going away altogether. I played my first ever tournament...

After walking it off, I think I'm going to go with the three trees in a line idea. Each one will be 20-25 feet apart. They should grow together eventually to create a formidable obstacle for the A...

Chuck,
I'm not sure that I understand what you mean here:

"Then perhaps the trees should be placed in a line spaced 20-30 feet apart rather than together so at least one impacts play from each...

Karl,
Thanks for the input about moving the tee boxes. In many other places on the course, trees are quite a factor right off the tee. In the case of this hole, that's just not much of an option...

Russell,

It's not complicated. The guy's name and number are on the disc. It's his. All of the rest of this is irrelevant. Call him and offer to return it. If he fails to return the call, try once more. ...

I like this idea as long as the obstacles are large enough to genuinely add a challenge and it doesn't create a blind shot that could nail a non-dger.
