I guess we need to know how much this hole is dominating the results. By looking at how each player’s ranking would have changed if a hole had not been played, we can calculate how much impact each...

Sure, but that only affects quality of play. Using parking lots, roads, and greens can cause courses to be pulled.

Whether it is OK or not at Winthrop is not the point. People will watch the videos and copy the design onto places where they shouldn't.

Too short for Open. Often a par 4 is wrongly thought to be one drive long. That's why you see a lot of 550 foot "par 4s". To me, if players can save par with a routine throw, it is probably...

On that note, I don't like to see golf greens in bounds (or even in play). If we are to get more disc golf on golf courses, we need to show that we understand how special (expensive) greens are. ...

Maaaybe. Now I suppose I have to make something up to justify the rest of that post. So, here goes:

Most of the holes should be par 3 (or easier). That's what makes the game fun.

I like to...

When 17 was first set up, the only rule which would allow for re-tee was OB. That's no longer the case. Don't you think Relief Area (re-tee throwing 2, instead of re-tee throwing 3) would be enough...

I know we don’t want to move all the way to courses that are perfect tests of skill, but I want to know how to get there. We’re pretty far away. For example, the scoring spread width of just 49.52...

Nobody has ever determined their line of flight distance. (That would require something like an arc length integral.) They only know how far the disc went from where it was thrown to where it...

Perhaps that is not the point.

Sure, about 90% of throws did not incur a penalty, which is about the same % of throws that are normally good enough to score well-set par.

However, the...

Take the lowest score that at least 3 people got on each hole, it would be 19 under.

21 under if you include the ace and an eagle two players got on another hole.

So, how to do it has been...

The important take-away is: As a player, always follow the Director's rules. Players have no power to cancel or modify them, even if the TD didn't get a waiver.
