Question Mando Consensus

How do people really feel about mandatories? Seems to be a lot of camps on them. A lot of people hate them, period. A lot think that nobody really observes them. So, let's talk about mandos.

(poll coming)

Also, vote twice on the poll, once for your feeling about them being good or not and once on whether or not you think people pay attention to them.

Thanks.

I wish. I've run into a lot of "mandos can't/shouldn't be used to shape a hole/for design" lately and I wanted to see what a good sample of people really think about mandos in terms of observance and usage.

In general they are a good idea, as long as they are thought out.
Something easily thrown over does not make a good mando. Such as the 15 ft pole that marked where a right dogleg started, there were a lot of judgement calls on that.
I've also played in tournaments that had a mando setup that was completely different than my normal line. Not necessarily bad, as it did add challenge, but made me rethink a hole that I had played dozens of times.

Around here, there are several mandos that, apparently, are only there to keep pros from throwing giant spike hyzers.

I assume you mean casual players...? I think in tournament play 99.8% of players pay attention to them.

Avoid them unless it's absolutely a safety concern. If you can do without them then the course will be much better.
