Very impressive.

I love disc golf, but there are some things I just couldn't bring myself to do.

My universe. I work 10 minutes from a very nice short course, uncrowded during the workday. I can grab lunch in a drive-through, eat while driving, and play 9 holes in an hour lunchbreak. 18 holes...

Take everything here with a grain of salt. Except the initial statement that driving 100' over the pond isn't sadistic, or even terribly effective. But it's dicey offering design advance from...

Agreed. But even if all of the MPOs at Worlds had entered and all of them threw in the 500' range, it would leave me to doubt that so many other disc golfers are throwing 500', or even 450'.

Thanks.

The skeptic might note that at the event with the best players in the world, only 13 topped 500'.

Admittedly, not all of the best players or biggest arms competed for distance, but...

Until recently, a tournament near me had field events, including distance on a flat open field. Even with the chance for big run-ups or 360s, absolutely no obstacles to constrain the flight, and the...

Just keep in mind that an errant shot trying to get past the house, may hit the house much harder than an overthrow of a basket in front of the house.

Also, I'm not entirely clear of the layup,...

I would avoid that, but if you want to try it, console yourself with the notion that, if the cabin is 20-30' past the basket, people won't hit it very hard. Overthrows don't generally go terribly far...

I've played in South Carolina for 20 years, and can only think of 2 closed courses. One was a great private course, closed for internal family reasons. The other was on a golf course, a tenuous...

There is a rule of thumb, which you can take with a grain of salt, that every 1' of elevation change translates into 3' of distance. So it looks like you'd have quite a bit. How far is right? It...

This also goes to your intent for the course.

I think the PDGA guidelines go to the expected skill level, and are pretty conservative. But most skill levels can handle a 100' water crossing, and...

Well, that makes quite a difference.

One thought, without seeing the place, is that the basket doesn't need to be in line with the powerline clearing. Could it be on the cabin side, but off to...

First of all, in our philosophy at Stoney Hill, "interesting" and "sadistic" aren't contradictory terms. "Or" seldom gets between them.

Secondly, it's a family farm, do what you want. I don't...
