Okay, that was snark. Damned good snark, but still.

And I'd like to hear about their upkeep schedule.
Walnut Creek Park in Albemarle County, VA is on their 6th year with the shorter "no fill" turf- no maintenance and no issues to this point.

I have 2 longer turf with sand for fill tees at Hawk Hollow that have been in the ground for roughly 10 years. no maintenance and no problems. (unless you consider cattle walking all over them to be maintenance) Admittedly Hawk Hollow gets minimal play.

I think you are only listening to the comments that fit your agenda. Each basket has problems. One from too light of chains, the other from trying to solve the problem.
Previous was gonna be my last comment, but you're calling me out. Already watched it and listened to the comments. Stiff chains push out more putts that might have stuck on lighter ones. We're used to having discs get caught left or right of center on Discatchers, for example, Pro or Am side. Those putts shouldn't be sticking in the first place. X's shrink the target space, and the target space is more reliable.

From the European Open, I know, but saw McBeth's putt here on an Innova basket (I marked the starting time at an awesome Barsby putt). I don't know which basket, but problems with putts come on different baskets, different makes, different places...
