At my course we turn off the rain for the duration of the round, then turn it back on when we leave. Get with your weather guy and make sure he knows the schedule.

Don't they do that without respect to the par designation? Couldn't they do that even with a "Par 0" designation?

It depends on why you abandoned your throw. If you did so only because the tee box is a better lie, then you are getting to improve your lie without penalty.

I wonder if there is a "tin cup" consideration as to the OB rule that simply isn't present with respect to the lost disc rule. I.e., is the reason for the reduced OB penalty to protect against the...

Why oh why would you hand out prizes before you got paid?????

TD is a thief, but you should demand to be paid before you hand out any vouchers.

Don't forget the restricted "open" division. It should definitely exist, but "open" might not be the right designation.

You don't "have" to do any of this. If you'd throw your disc where you're supposed to, none of this would happen. :p

Nope. In fact, the hole that my original post concerns has an elevated tee box and the sidewalk, its existence and location, is clearly visible to anyone who isn't sight impaired.

If there is ever a re-throw from the previous lie, then time is no consideration. I just don't see any way around this. It's bad enough that we allow an imprecise lie to be used when a disc goes ob....

You can call it educated if you want. In this particular example, it is very uneducated and you are just making poor assumptions - including apparently assuming that the land the hole is on is flat.

Well, first of all, the loss of the disc may be no disadvantage at all and really has no bearing on whether to penalize the player who lost it. As such, it doesn't "stack." Certainly, empathy for a...

There's no such thing as a "lost disc penalty." Losing a disc isn't punishment.

So here is the situation. The sidewalk in the image was put in after the tee sign. A caddie book was issued at the beginning of the tournament that, for this hole, stated, "Sidewalk is OB." Similar...

The DQ for player misconduct comes with consequences. My thoughts are that it is the only proper penalty. It may be thin, but that's all that I can figure out that is applicable.
