Played to a lot of different targets in the long ago. The course in my hometown had pole holes installed at the outset, so nothing weird there. The course down the road in Ottumwa had coneheads.

Then there were lots of small courses scattered around the state that had all sorts of targets. Played to tone poles, butterfly nets, through hoops, to baskets in the ground, all manner of painted trees/utility poles, homemade pole holes utilizing truck tires and bushel baskets and such.

I actually kind of miss having that variety of targets. Each type forced adjustments to throws and approaches in different ways. The standardization of targets has removed a lot of the need for learning to finesse the disc in the same fashion.
