A general observation on the comments in this thread is several of the courses identified were either too easy or more likely a bit too difficult for the poster, i.e., not in their preferred skill...

Since it's flex start, I'm thinking you just follow the tag rules within each group as they finish. When their round ends, have each player in the group draw a tag from the big box which they can't...

Suggest giving players a random bag tag number within the range of tag numbers you have available, but not the actual tag when they start to play. Then you can just use regular bag tag rules using...

The first format that I suspect could be profitable in higher population areas is a Tiki course (see Blockhouse) added to an existing facility that has other things going on like a bar, restaurant,...

In Tour economics, not getting that one throw penalty was worth $100 in diapers. ;)

Best Pro Shop & Food Service Onsite

Curious to discover our most advanced pro shops with food service, perhaps alcohol even, at a pay-for-play disc golf facility NOT on an active ball golf course. I was commenting the other day that I...

Upon quick review, the basic rule book does not appear to say anything about assigning par to holes nor the par+4 penalty. This late penalty is in the PDGA Competition Manual which doesn't appear to...

What rules are you referring to? Assigning par in advance without data has always been an estimate or tradition, not a rule. You have commented yourself that a particular hole was assigned the wrong...

The reality is there's no reason for the "2 close throws" in the par definition. All we have to define is the expected number of throws to get in the basket. The lowest score (and better) players of...

I know the definition well having been involved with the PDGA in course design when it was first posted. As Steve pointed out, close range is a slippery number that could be as high as 285 feet...

Not exactly. We make integer throws that count 1 each. But we can average scores between 2 and 3. If close range is estimated at 200 feet for 2.0, then a hole with an effective length less than 300...
