Besides trees and exposed roots that thwart skip up shots, wind is the factor that acts like slope in ball golf. You want to make the disc golf green more difficult? Add wind machines. Better yet, make it a motorized windmill and have the blade pass in front of the basket.

I like the idea of short holes, especially slight downhills that have OB on the back of the hole. That forces a real risk reward drive.

On the flip side, I like longer holes that have to carry OB and have the basket close to the edge. So you really have range well to carry and still land close. If you go to far past then you have a risky putt or approach back to the basket.

I also like mounds and patches of brush/tall rough gaurding baskets.

your comment on most courses not having trees inside the circle...there is a reason for that. Okay, trees 25-30 from the pin are quite ok, but trees 20 feet or closer are just bad course design. its ridiculous to have somebody make their upshot, only to have a tree directly between them and the basket. Also, the tree might be small now but they will grow and become a massive obstacle to putting

I don't mind a tree close to the basket, they don't really make it that much mire difficult, you can easily step out and shoot around a tree 20' and in.

I find that there are a lot of baskets around here simply buried in trees, with 10, 20, or more trees inside the circle.

There's your risk reward.
