Next course I design, I'm going to do a LIDAR flight and be able to objectively determine LOBET. That would be awesome...

Are you interested in helping put this in to practical use in helping either sell a course to a community or in helping increase some funding to finish a course project?

I'm not a math person...so crunching the numbers won't be my strong point. Making the presentation and closing the deal is what I bring to the table.

You'll need to have someone do the legwork on the site to determine the Length, OB/hazards, elevation and tree factors. I can do the math part or make sure it's done properly.

That's why GPS and LIDAR are the ultimate tools for this type of analysis. You can objectively measure the data and create accurate results. Surveying is another way, but very time consuming.

Would you count a shallow but defined creek water hazard the same as a pond? A pond makes retrieving a disc difficult while a shallow creek doesn't. Do you count the same?

I'll get info together and see what I come up with.

It depends on whether you'll mark the creek or any other feature for that matter OB or not, not whether players can retrieve their discs.

I ask because of players not liking water OB and think part of that being how easy it is to retrieve discs that end up wet.
