Not sure if it had been mentioned, but what about a smooth concrete circle? Mounded. Might add some distance to typical gimme putts.

WTF? Which basket do you shoot at? Do you get a .5 stroke for the top basket?

There are two baskets on every hole, silver is the shorter set and red is the long set. All the others are in different locations, he just thought this was a cool basket placement so he found a way to put both in the tree for this hole.

Don't miss your putt on the high side either

My luck I'll get my first ace on that hole - a black ace of course

I like late trouble, i.e. a guarded basket. My preference is that any basket that can't be putted at by straddling out is too guarded. So New's idea of a fenced in basket on two sides is a little guarded for me.

I think we should encourage more artists to do modern sculptures around our baskets.

How badass would it be to have something like this to play around?:

That's cool but how many shirtless disc golfers will decide to nap on it?

Are you opposed to electrifying it?

As said above, sloping greens are good. Greens with severe drops behind them (for those "flyby" misses) will add lots of strokes and increase the pucker factor.

I always try to include a safer pin placement for newer players, groups, demos, etc. and of course, a nice spot that really challenges a players mental game with high risk/reward ratio.

Here's a pic of a nice one at Rockville Lake Park in Indiana!

I feel like, if its logistically possible for the course to implement, the 10m circle should be mowed very short to allow easier roll aways and to make drives skip a little more. I think that challenge would be cool to have, at least in a tournament setting.
