Sometimes 3 per hole. Don't worry, Reese already knows. I had an extremely brief, three-hour conversation with (from?) him about it. I do respect his depth of experience. So much so that I incorporated an Easter-egg of a 9-hole two pins per hole Reese-style course within the design, just in case this hadn't worked out. Up until now, his was the only proven method.

Try not to lose it short or to the right.

Here is my suggestion. It is a natural hyzer shot but very tricky to unload with the narrow runway. The hyzer is within range of the short pin while still being super difficult to bend it around with accuracy. The long is a par 4 unless you unload a wicked roller or have a 500' power hyzer.

red arrows indicate possible flight paths. there also might be an overhead route but its hard to tell from that pic. It might need some tweeking but it gives the player options....

You could add some difficulty/fun for the suggestions with the basket across the road by making the road OB. Might make the par 4 suggestions more interesting.

Is it possible to get a ground level pic to see how big the trees are and what type?

Design a hole here - Final Answer

Well, I hope everyone had fun doing that. Thanks for the ideas.

I met with the client and here is the final result:



It turns out we didn't need to sacrifice the existing 900-foot hole. However, we did move the tees in toward the middle of the fairway. The reason is to channel the disc golfers so they play more in line with the golfers, rather than popping in and out of the woods. This makes it easier for the golfers to know when it is safe to (try to) hit the ball.

OK, we didn't get to shape the tee throw like many wanted. However, look at the spray patterns for 1000, 950, and 850-rated players. As you can see, they will have trees to deal with often enough on the second and third throws.

A side effect is that the Gold tee is about 20 feet lower now. The Gold tee throw is an uphill shot, which will shorten and scatter the throws even more than shown here.

It looks like you are designing (have designed) a tweener hole there since for each level the approach shot (the drive in Red's case) mostly lands 50-80' short of the target. Am I missing something?

BTW, I love the charts and pictures you come up with! Is the one here projected scatter or actual?

Spray patterns of 850, 950, and 1000 rated players . . .it sounds like I would enjoy a nice conversation with you. I want to design courses and I have seen a lot, but maybe I need to get further into the statistics and such before I attempt it. The last thing I want to do is design a bad course.
