This also begs the question... Why isn't there ANY official target of the PDGA? Get really tired of the variance in baskets from course to course and tourney to tourney. Cones, different chain configs, tone poles, pick something and stick to it!

There are over 18 Championship Approved targets now - one for each hole if someone wanted to build a course that way.

I understand the difference between cost of a tonal pole (spell that correctly?) and a basket is a huge cost. Also, I believe it's good to have multiple manufacturers of baskets so there isn't one company holding down a monopoly on them.

Besides the only baskets I hate are the innova baskets with the obnoxious yellow bogie band. At least discraft did one thing right with their baskets.

Glad there isn't an official target ,yet. I love different hole out devices including tones, hula hoops, holes in the ground, home made baskets, trees, etc. etc.

The game should stay unique, fun and creative

That would be an interesting touch to have one type of basket/object per hole on a course.

I haven't had the opportunity to play on cones, so I can't intelligently comment on the OP. That said, I would love to give them a try.

Are the only examples still in use around the Twin Cities, or are there other cone courses out there?
