i think blazes are right up your alley,
no real effort
cant really vandalize
its already a recognized system
cant be covered in snow
guess the only trouble could be where there is no trees, open course

Sorry for my ignorance.... Is a blaze just an arrow/series of arrows spray painted on the trees?

Marshall MO has three DG courses in the same park, sharing a total of 27 baskets if I remember correctly (only played there once).

The designers there were faced with showing the direction of multiple tee pads from multiple possible pin locations, which would be enough to give old Al Einstein a migraine. They solved it elegantly by hanging PVC tubes from the underside of the basket, each one painted with the name of the course and the number of the next tee. They could switch the tubes from spoke to spoke easily, no hassles with groundskeeping, and very accurate.

I'm working on upgrading my local course as well, and this is the stipulation we have with our parks department. I looking into industrial, outdoor stickers that will go on the bottom of the basket pole, with an arrow and "next tee" pointing in the right direction.

I agree with Paul, the in ground pavers are often covered with leaves, have the marking rubbed off or are ripped out of the ground by chuckers.

If you use the in-laid pavers, scrutinize the terrain and strategically place them on a visible raised spot that will naturally let leaves and debris shed away.

When it snows there isn't much you can do. Hopefully there will be a trail of footprints for people to follow.

the most unique way I have seen are wood cut outs attached to the bottom of the cage that point ou in the right direction. Very helpful, especially on a tough course to navigate

At the risk of repeating, a 4x2.5 wood block clamped to the bottom of the pin with an arrow carved in it. If you need, put one on a tree along the way. Seems cheap, will not ruin the natural aesthetic, and by its very nature points the way

PDGA doesnt like things on baskets (I hear) we had to remove them at Winget for Worlds. Which is odd because a bunch of courses had flags on the baskets (which help knock down over throws.)
