Should this be OB?

The hole is 330', you can see the basket right in front of the tree. This is a new course and the only one in town, so mostly new players. The question is should we use the building as OB? At first we thought we would, with on top or in the building OB as well as on the concrete surrounding the building. For most players around here it sits right where most drives land. So, what are your thoughts on this, OB or not OB. Also it is an old building that does not get used.

I would say yes OB. I have never yet landed on a building or concrete that was not OB. Most experienced players walking up on this hole would assume it to be out of bounds.

Unsafe design. Hole should be moved.

Just the building including on top, not the concrete. Looks like the bush could be a nice hazard on its own.

My group would play it as OB. Most Noobs don't play OB rules, so, no big deal if you specify it as OB. I probably would.

I'd tend to agree with this. If you really don't want discs hitting the building (and players trying to climb on the roof to get them down), simply making the area OB is insufficient (i.e. it doesn't do anything).

*If* it's really completely fine for players to be all over that building, I'd personally agree with Chuck on the OB rules (i.e. just the top). The building itself serves as a nice obstruction to putting lines regardless.

If it's a locked, abandoned building then not a safety issue. If anyone is regularly going in and out of the building other than maybe a maintenance shed, then it's not really safe.

I knew I would get some comments like this and I understand. It is an old abandoned bathroom that will one day be torn down, is what we were told. With the flow of the course this area had to be used, we had the basket in a different location, but the park director was scared it would get ran over because during softball games(that is a field to the right) people park anywhere and everywhere and this was the only location we could agree on. With the town not having any courses within 40 miles we took what they gave us.
