I like the idea of the colored pole. I think it would be better to add a painted or colored pvc sleeve over the galvanized steel pole. The sticker is probably the best bet. Paint is going to chip and even the possibily of a powder coated center pole won't be durable enough to stand up to the elements and constant use. If it gets too fancy it will require some sort of warranty.

This is a private course that has Arroyo baskets in Saranac, Michigan.
I would guess the baskets are their older aluminum design, but I havnt been there so I'm not sure.

All jokes aside, If the little magnet they carry in their pocket doesn't stick they're going to steal it.
Speed is very important in putting, just because you hit the chains doesn't mean the putt should stay in, even dead center.

This hole is freaking nasty /\ /\ /\ /\

What you can't see is that the basket is on the top of a 12'-15' tall hunk of granite that slopes on pretty much all sides. It's also at the end of a long, tough par 4 hole. Heartbreak indeed, it's certainly been stomping the sh*t out of mine

Jamboree course, Camp Sekani, Spokane WA (hole 17)

no, non magnetic steel is pretty worthless in all honesty. non magnetic steel is steel that had little or no additives to it, rendering it pretty cheap and worthless to bums. its the alloys like nickel, aluminum, ect... that they want and all those expensive alloys are magnetic (hence bums carrying magnets with them). so if steel is magnetic, it means its rich in those alloys. Rendering it to be more valuable and more likely to be ripped off by a bum looking for scrap metal.
