Yea the original idea was just up hill 3/4 of the way up. I left the parks department guy 4 disc golfer magazines to help him understand concepts better. Before I knew it. It was in the ground.

What ever you do, box in the basket area and then terrace the hill in some way, even the one that Texhop has put up will have erosion to the left and right and he'd be served to get some horizontal erosion protection.

might make sense to set some steps in to the hill with blocks so people will use one path to go up and down to the green area.

I imagine if you just anchor the basket deep enough in the ground, it'll work whether it's on flat or a hill.
Some places definitely make it work. Hole #15 at Forked Run State Park in Reedsville, OH has one of the pin positions directly on the side of a steep hill. I played it and they didn't seem to have any problems with erosion. Putting on it sure did suck tho

personally, I would PM "Bill at Flip". Bill has many baskets set into hillsides without terracing or retaining walls that have been there for 15-20 years without issue... he may be ablet to give you some tips....

Flip is also out of the way enough that it doesn't get the heavy traffic of a popular public park course, so he doesn't have to work quite as hard at preventing erosion and compaction.
