But, heck, with 85% approval of such an important issue, a candidate for the PDGA board would be swept into office. A handful of like-minded candidates -- which should be no problem to assemble,...

On a 300' hole in an open field, the target landing spot is the pole. On the same hole with OB on one side, the...

As the first part, yes, it's all part of the course design -- though it fits the OP's definition of "artificial". (The 400' line marks where there was originally a jeep road that we used as OB; the...

Funny you should bring that up. Just at this moment, I'm sort of wishing the Old Man were right.

We went out and built a course with about every flavor of OB imaginable. It's only got one...

How would the poll results differ if the audience weren't selected from people who respond to the word "gimmicks" in the thread title?

The vast majority thinks the USDGC is so silly that they'll fight and scrap for entry, even pay a huge entry fee, even players who have no chance of cashing. They think it's so silly that thousands...
