Yesterday I played 2 rounds on a course with Prodigy T3 baskets. First time I had ever seen them. I had absolutely no problems and they caught just as well as the Discatchers I'm used to playing...

If the course isn't busy, playing safari holes is really fun. Our local course is never that busy and a few of us have a fantasy safari layout that we play occasionally. Some of the best holes that...

Tyler, to clarify, none of this is my original work. I am using formulas and ideas put forth by Chuck Kennedy.

These pics are almost 6 years old now... A lot of the brush is gone (and a few trees) so the gaps are more open, but you get the idea.

A few early gaps off the tee

Objects or baskets. I was just curious if people in general didn't feel it was fun putt to a smaller target. I actually like the idea of a smaller, yet very good catching device (either less...

Ever played an event with smaller/modified baskets?

All Bullseyes, zip-tied chains, or anything like that?

I played a run through of a new course going in nearby that had all of the anchors in but no baskets yet. Each anchor had PVC pipe sticking...

Does the slaked lime have the effect of adding a harder layer underneath/on top? Sounds like it would prevent rutting nicely.

Thanks for the replies. I think I'll do the posts to protect a few new trees from disc hits. The lattice is a good idea too but I'm afraid it may get broken.

Losing crucial trees

I've been thinking about how to maintain the integrity of a wooded hole after a crucial tree loss. A gap about 100' off the tee now has lucky routes that let through bad shots. Would it be tacky to...

Rethinking downhill effective length

On downhill throws, not only does the disc tend to turnover and get...

Random question...Has anyone played all four rounds of the USDGC with no OBs? (I would assume no one has)

If not, who holds the record for the least OB penalties in a single USDGC tournament?

It would likely play as an OB area since fountain grasses wouldn't hold up well to player traffic within the hazard.

Best case scenario would be to have some trees planted instead, requiring a...

Fairway Cross "Bunker" Hazard

There's an open downhill par 4 at our course, and I'm thinking of creating a waste/hazard area that players can challenge if they want the best angle and least distance for their second shot. It...
