If you want designers to be paid that kind of money then designers need to have a resume built up that would justify the $$. Or maybe the PDGA needs some type of designer program where designers can become accredited by the PDGA or another reputable organization so that parks departments feel comfortable that someone with a clue is doing the work. I know they had a designer conference, and that is a great first step, but there are a lot of unsafe courses getting put in right now.

There are probably very few designers in each state that have a resume which would lead a smart park's department manager to say, "yeah, I'll hand this guy a $10k check.
