The Hill @ Northview Church in Carmel, IN does this on a day-to-day basis! All the fairways are cut to 4.5" and the greens are cut to 2.5" It looks great!

2.5"?

For tournaments, we trim a few greens down to nubs to speed up the greens. Or rake off the leaves and twigs.

Not practical on a daily basis, though.

nothing pisses me off more than a beautiful approach shot droppin right at the pin, i catch a root and my damn disc rolls half a mile away.. fast rollaway greens suck and are a huge source of frustration to me, puttings already hard enough. i like obstacles up until the circle, thats about it

Aw, come on, there is nothing quite like a green on a boulder or hillside that makes your sphincter tighten as you throw. Have some fun. Anyone can putt on a nice falt 10 M circle.

I agree with zw about roots on greens. I also agree with sloppy that hillside greens can be fun. I know that I just don't like roots on sloped greens.

I've been watching some of the lcgm8 videos on Youtube the last few days (been a big fan for a couple years and just went back and got hooked again) and I really like how some of the steep greens in the woods at the 2011 EO have mulch on them. It's not ideal as, say, grass would be. But if the ground is eroded around the trees and there are a lot of exposed roots, I think that the mulch would make the hole play a lot for fun for me.

Not me. One thing I like about tricky greens is the built-in excuse they provide me.
