I was going to mention the cones. I haven't played any yet but I've seen pictures. I'll be playing Hansen and Moir in late September. I'm excited to finally see these things.

For me it's definitely the baskets at Lake Stevens in Washington state. IIRC the locals call them Dr. Fred baskets.



Discussion regarding Dr. Fred Baskets.

Every basket is a little different. Some are more akin to your typical basket, some are completely blocked off from one side so you have to approach from a particular side. I was very thankful to join some locals who were able to tell me the best spot to land for a look at a putt.

I believe that Scott Stokely had featured this basket on his YouTube Chanel.

I found on YouTube a person who was talking about the guy who invented them and was there when they got introduced to the courses in Minnesota and one in Canada.

Thanks for the info!

Then I played some other baskets that were alomost like these in the Finger Lakes of NY but most of the baskets were all wood except for the chains and screws, only about 2 baskets had the metal pole on top. The course had hole 2 or 3 being the one that you had to lay up to the front of the basket or the disc would 100% be in the road. Course was semi-public as it was part of a Boys and Girls club or similar organisation that owned the baskets but did not own the park the course was on.

A tip An uncle and cousin had when they played those baskets in the 2000's. One cousin got an Aerobie Arrow in Minnesota and the uncle had a 100 mold or Ultimate disc with him to make putting easier, they got the tip from the reviews and how to get to the course online they printed out From PDGA for some of the must hit courses like the cone holes or a very challenging course, the one used for the Minnesota Majestic. those old baskets need a deep lid disc golf disc or something deep and slow like the Aerobie Arrow or a slow catch disc (uncle made sure his was PDGA approved) to make it easier to putt into.

This Video also helps, the guy who first putts makes it with an older 1990-mid 2000's style 100 mold. They are at Moir.

Not terribly long, but requires accuracy and placement to be able to drop your putt into the pipe. The Blue and Green courses on site are pretty darn good also!!
