Check out the PDGA Course Design Guidelines on page 3 under Targets:
http://www.pdga.com/files/documents/...Guides2011.pdf

"Targets suspended from above can be fun for recreational play but there should be a way to secure it from swinging freely during sanctioned play."

Now imagine having to additionally take a penalty stroke for having landed on the basket.

Next, imagine a non-hanging basket where you've landed 10 feet above the ground directly over the basket. If the top of the chains is the playing surface, it's not two meters, and you can mark your lie below the basket and putt out. is that intended to be the case ofr every hole? Does 2 meters effectively become 3 meters directly above the basket?

Now imagine the arguments over whether the disc is in the tree directly above the basket. How do you ask the TD for a ruling on that after the round? Lie on the ground and take a photo?

Done it. Sunk it. Not that tough regardless of player height/reach.

Poor course rule.

Using 2m rule when target is hanging higher above ground than normal should be avoided.

Group decision.

I'm so happy we don't play by the "put your foot in the tree" rule. It made waaaay to much sense and worked just a bit too well.
