the obvious use of a hanging basket is as a swing by fat teenage meth heads til it bends/breaks

I've always considered hanging baskets an option for private courses only, due to the reasons already mentioned. I'm not sure they're a good idea even there---though we did put one in at Stoney Hill.

As for the greatest ever, one competitor is the one on the extinct Gran Canyon course. The mound was 20' high, maybe more; pretty steep; and the basket hung right over the tip, suspended from a wooden support attached to a tree. Yours may be better, but that's the best I've seen.

Well I planted the sleeve today......I will take some sh!t from local players but like an ephiphany as I was digging the hole a group of tweens and teens was busy throwing rocks at trains a mere 200 feet from me.....I think I made the right choice Thanks Biscoe and everyone else who talked sense and backed up my initial fears.
Pictures coming soon enough

If you can get them to each deposit $150 into a basket replacement fund, go for it.

It sounds like it's inevitable that it's going to need replacing at some point anyway where it's at though.

Sounds like you made the right decision to me, in spite of popular (local) opinion.

if anyone still cares...
the course i'm helping to build (flying dragon) has so much rock that we have no choice but to hang baskets. we do that by stretching a cable between 2 trees. the basket pole hangs from a short piece of chain in the middle of the cable. we also assemble the basket with the pole upside down. that works much better visually. see "Hole #6 'B' Basket" pic on this site.
