Late to the party, but agree w/ the consensus.
Designers generally do not 'relate' to the course's land via drone footage, but customers often do...I believe this is because drone footage can obscure the human scale of a golf course, as well as critical details, like prevailing winds or the perceptions of depth, for example...

As to islands in golf and the utter ridiculousness of what's already out there:

#17 at TPC Sawgrass is a pretty famous island green...think they've hosted some majors there...

Then there's: http://www.golfcda.com/the-floating-green/

read about what this island can do, then imagine what they're doing in Dubai...

Trump also built a huge waterfall near a green at his course in Los Angeles...just a taste of reality for the overly hopeful...some disc golfer really needs to get close to Elon Musk...
