Mandos do very little to stop the chuckers......

I think his concern is for people safari shooting the hole from a non-tee pad. If there is a basket in the clearing tempting them to throw, I doubt they would honor a mandatory from that location either. I'd love to see pictures of the area!

for some reason I see idiots throwing to the next tee pad....this includes throwing down a bike path and across roads etc.....it's just the impulsivity of youth...but you gotta account for it

chuckers (I would say a solid 90% don't honor mandos).......and I would argue that 80% don't even know what a mando is............


I'm not sure what the neighbors are like, but I wouldn't even entertain the idea of planting trees because if it does block the view all it would take is a couple phone calls and a threat to sue the landowner. Blocking views I believe is against the law in most states because the property value can be compromised. I would go with your 260ft idea

Well, they do around here. I know what you mean though.

The only easy way I can see to prevent that is to make the course flow so that the walk to the raised, illegal tee is egregiously long and out of the way. Other than that, maybe a sign explicitly forbidding you from teeing there but that's only going to encourage some DBs.

Looks you'll have to plant lots of rosebushes b/w the correct tee and the illegal tee.

You know what, you are totally right. It's like a mysterious teepad putting instinct.

yes we must account for mysterious tee pad approach and putt instincts as well....m theory is that players without bags are always gripping their disc and the urge to throw is stronger with these kind...those of us with bags would have to get a disc out of our bag and the instinct to tee pad shoot is thus mitigated by 1 more step.
