Pulling baskets for winter

Haven't really seen any threads about the pros of pulling baskets... is there substantial gain on longevity?

Its not so much to protect the baskets but to protect the ground so the course doesn't become a mud pit come springtime. Outside of northern locales, it is rarely done.

If the course is closed, it probably helps keep the baskets from walking away.

If the basket is anywhere near a road, salt spray wreaks havoc.
Many baskets are pulled because they are on sledding hills as well.

The only courses I know of around here that actually pull baskets are ones that are on ski resorts.

Rogers Lakewood, my local, pulls a couple for sledding. But the other 22 stay in place - moved to their short positions, typically.
