Critique my course, Designed and built in 48 hours.

Hey all, Here is some news about my temp course I built in Dawson Creek BC Canada. I am hopeful for a deluxe 18 hole basket course in the future.

The 2nd photo is from teepad #2, looking towards the target 2. Hole 2 through 6 are in this area, with holes going clockwise.

There are a lot of superhole potential opportunities here. Like once you finish hole 9, go to teepad 2 or 3 and shoot back over river to hole 1 target.

Keep in mind, i designed and built this course in 48 hours. I designed it so that new players wouldn't be too intimidated, but where it still allowed average players to differentiate themselves in strokes from beginners.

I used eco spikes to support the 4x4 posts, and used pvc sewer piping, 6 inches for targets. This allows easy alternate holes to be put in or removed/changed. Later on I might use fire extinguishers or stove pipe and drop it on the posts. Also, I know the posts are a little tall, I didn't have time to cut them all lower. I work in the oil/gas and by the time I get back home in a few weeks, it'll probably be snowing, so I wanted the course in fast so the city council members can play it before it gets too cold.

Doesnt look half bad man! Great effort, hats off to you. The only issue I see, is if theres a groups on 7/8/9 at once. Discs going off the fairway to the fairways of the previous hole, or the fairway crossing that basket.

Yeah, that is a bottle neck there, but it's not a busy road. But if neighbors complain, I can see i might have to re arrange. Like have have regular teepad 7 near where the advanced teepad is now, and move basket toward better tree grouping, or further from road.


The city only seemed concerned regarding 6, I moved teepad and basket to the rights of their respective tree cluster, forcing 99 percent of players to do a back hand right hand shot away from the road a little bit more.

Maybe I can get some more trees planted along the road where basket 7/9 is? I like that 7, 8, 9 areas because they are low canopy shots, and they even out the RHBH bias of the other 6 holes. Flicks do well for low these low shots.

attached is an edit for 7, 8, 9

I was able to come back to town this weekend and move targets 7/8/9. I also devised some Advanced/pro Holes and tournament holes.


Maps attached.
