Question Your Ideal Course

Okay all you dreamers out there. IF you were able to build your ideal hole, your ideal course, your pipe dream of the BEST DISC GOLF COURSE EVER, what would you want on it.

(Let's just all assume we would want waitresses from a national chain that has a owl as a logo bringing us a cold beverage on every other hole and stick to course design and course amenities)

i'd build the ultimate risk/reward course. my course would have the following features to create this risk/reward.

- a drive off of a waterfall, and after you drive you have to get in a kayak and go over the waterfall or take a 5 stroke penalty for using the stairs
- one hole in a tiger habitat with hungry tigers
- a fairway through a biker bar
- an underwater basket in a tank full of sharks
- a teepad that is actually a trap door that opens every five seconds, time it right or get the spikes
- some of the baskets are electrified
- the fairways are full of fire ants
- a beehive on one basket

.. that's all i got for now

Mach 3 baskets
Trashcans
Doesn't matter if the teepads are cement as long as they are flat and well kept
plenty of trees... roots sticking out of the ground and all.
risk/reward type water hazards (maybe not forced water hazards, but ones that provide a shortcut at a risk)
risky putts
elevation (up, down, left to right, right to left, crests, valleys...etc)
restrooms
practice baskets with elevation and obstacles
Navigation aids of some sort
Tee signs (at least accurate distances listed)
nearby refreshments and BBQ
.... I'm sure there is more, but i got bored

I'd want a nice challenge and stunning beauty. Something that EVERYONE would love to come to, even the wife & kids. Fill it with full of holes like 1 on Beast, hole 3 at Flyboy, hole 7 & 12 at Flip.

I love fairways that have peninsula greens for approach shots over water. Idlewild 2, if I recall correctly.


* got bit by the 5 min monster.

Variety and challenge are what brings me back to disc golf courses. Mix up distances, hole shapes and lengths, fairway tightnesses, throw in elevation and cool water shots and you've got a good start.

NEW013... I have actually seen two of those on your list. Fairways filled with fireant mounds are not too uncommon in Texas. Also, a seldom used course in Mississippi one summer had a yellow jacket nest the size of your fist on the bottom of it. We didn't putt that one out that year.

Thanks for the input. I was hoping someone would bring something up that I have not thought of yet. So if there is one thing out there that makes you say, "whoa, that is awesome!" What is it?

Flyboy with all Chainstars or Discatchers. I don't like their current baskets(they have a couple Discatchers though). Mix that with Trace State Parks Gold course and I'd be set.
