I like how it just flips the stock pole upside down. That's a real simple solution.

fyi, we tried to find a place to drill a hole for this one, using an auger attached to a skid steer. we broke it. as we finish the course, we will likely hang a few more. it is so much easier. if swinging on the baskets becomes a problem, we'll attach another cable at right angles.

I think hanging baskets are fine as long as they are not cranked up high in the air. Hanging something where you can't get a normal basket in, where it is temporary, or where you can simply put it in a more risky position is great. Sugaree has homemade hanging baskets that work really well, and allow Mando to have some great greens on rock formations and near small cliffs. It works.

I did one at my local park and yes it was used as a swing till the limb broke. Hopefully it raised a few knots on their heads on the way down. But as a fix I added a small length of 1/8" cable to the bottom, anchored into the ground. All it took was a loop crimped around the basket through bolt and the tail end of the cable having a couple loose knots into about a hole with a half bag of concrete. I left enough slack in the cable to keep about 3 feet of swing but not enough slack to be a trip hazard. Worked perfect.



And it still has killer disc rejecting spin action...

Those game cameras are pretty easy to hide too and are silent when taking pictures.
I am actually putting together a course on some private land I have and I am definitely going to put one hanging basket out there. Adds another fun element to the game IMO.
Either way, good luck


Most game cameras illuminate at night time, making them visible to a vandal unfortunately.

We've got a course on private land we're working on. We have a nice hole with a hanging basket on it. Here's a shot of the basket back to the tee.

I prefer knowing that the wind isn't going to effect the basket after I throw. I'd say, not to hang.
