36 Different Baskets on One Course?

This is a spin-off of the selecting a basket thread, prompted by this:

Would this be a good idea?

Unless you can somehow still get a discount for buying 36, this seems very expensive.

However, I would go out of my way to play a course like this if it existed.

Why not? A different type of basket on each hole fits the idea of having 18 (or 36) distinct hole designs. The baskets that have a reputation as not catching as well can go on the shorter holes where there might not be much else to the design. Put the baskets with the best catching reputation on the long or complex holes to "reward" players that navigate the difficult fairway.

Having a different type of basket on each hole can't be any different than having elevated (or sunken) baskets, baskets among trees, baskets in a wide open green, etc. Variety is the spice of life.

Seems an ideal idea for a place like the IDGC, with each company donating a basket to the cause.

Consistency is what we need.

Yeah, if you want to run a two course complex with a museum attached (i.e IDGC). Perhaps we'll have a handful of IDGC's across the globe one day.

Other than that, the whole idea seems tacky.

It would be sweet if they were homemade, and all different.

Years ago I played a number of courses in the western U.S. that each had a variety of basket models. I remember thinking that if they all got together and did some trading, they could be uniform.

It wasn't a big deal, but did seem a little odd.

Now I frequently play a course with 3 or 4 basket models, without giving it a second thought.

I think that'd be fantastic.

What would even more cool is if they were in chronological order so that you can see the development of the sport as you progress through your round.

A potential private course owner might be able to get many baskets free if he told the manufacturers he was planning to have a different basket on each hole and the manufacturers know that there are over 30 models to choose from. I would think the manufacturers would want to make sure they were in there, especially if it was a good project with a good location.

I agree with ElementZ, if there was some kind of order to them it could be cool. I can see it helping get people to the course too.
