I put the tees almost under the trees for 2 reasons - take away the thumber that could neutralize the effect of the trees (which I am assuming are not too prevalent on a ball golf course to begin with) and to split the fairway with a big tree trunk right in front of you (making the right and left fairway choices more pronounced). Trapezoidal tee pads would be ideal.

There's my idea. The basket placement on the pic is partially blocked by the text box but is there as a blue dot.

There ya go. A shorter tee that favors ams w/ rhbh, a longer tee that forces a more controlled shot. Everybody wins. Tee up on the "road" for good visibility from the tee.

Oh, and the fire breathing dragon is an optional mando.

What skill level is the course being designed for?

A lot of you guys look like you are proposing 450' holes which are tweener holes scoring-wise which makes for a lousy playing experience IMO. It is almost impossible to reach the putting range in one throw (getting with 30' is still very low percentage for the big arms) so the second throw is a lame-o 50-180' upshot for almost anyone. The only score separation is for screwing up.....but not for excellent shots (except for the big arms - only a tiny % of the playing population can throw over 400').

Don't worry about that. I can adjust for skill level and other constraints later. I just want to see what kind of hole everyone submitting a design would like to play. And why they would like it.

I like this the most too. Right length for a good par 3 and the pin placement would require some placement on the drive so you're not blocked out on the upshot. If it's feasible, maybe a short tee from the top of the pic with a line to hit through the trees.

I did my own draft, and it came out exactly like 164StarValkarie's did, except Id add an alternate basket placement and an alternate teepad.

If you don't like my tee placement due to the distance, move it. Place it up near the big shadow towards the left-center of the picture. That shortens the hole up to roughly 300' which should be manageable for most golfers to get to the green. I placed the mando there so the thrower is forced to shape a shot around that tree to reach the green instead of just a RHBH hyzer.

I'd think that using the bigger trees for a basket location would make a nice frame for the shot. The tees could be tweaked around the smaller trees to provide the desired level of shot shape and difficulty.

Looks like you're planning on using one ball golf hole for two disc golf holes. I promise not to tell Reese about it, you wouldn't want him to get his panties into a bunch over it
