I know this seems like it sucks, but perhaps there is a better way to work with everyone....
This is a common problem with disc golf courses. Areas need to be scoped out by environmentalists first and areas of concern should not be used in the design...
Disc golf is a lot tougher on the land than we would like to admit.
Chris, you are correct, we do take a toll on some areas, and this place definately needs to have trees cut to make any kind of throwing lane. THe local officals have held meeting, voted, and approved the layout using a map and walkthrough of the proposed course, so we are OK there. They did not bring in an environmental specialist, which is going to happen very soon.
The course design may needs some tweeks, but will likely go through.
