I think disc golf should make every effort to NOT standardize or follow ball golf......except the money of course.
Traditional Golf can have Variety just that Majority of USA Courses tend to be the boring style that does not allow for as much variety. The Links style courses and the old no longer made this way hill style from United Kingdom have much more verity to the holes using the natural layout of the land as a challenge to contrast the modern flattened out land style golf course or the flat piece of land course. In fact near me 20 miles away there is a 9 hole links course that is tough due to using the natural layout of the land, native grasses to the region or grasses that could survive the area much better without watering in my area.

Disc Golf on the other hand does not need flattened land to make a course or even the grass changed to play the sport, why it is more common to see Disc Golf courses is that for $2,000 with mid priced Championship baskets the course can be made more of them then there are traditional golf places that need the money and land to make a great course.
