Fort Snelling course in St.Paul is backed up right to an airport. Hole two, which is 900ft long runs right along a fence separating the course from the airport property. Disc goes over the fence and you're probably never seeing it again.

Those "Basket #" signs are neat but jeez they must knock down a bunch of shots headed away from the basket.

Wait a week or two. At least one of the guys who patrols that area of the airport is a player. Discs do make their way back to the Clubhouse. No guarantees, though.

Interesting topic. I talked with a private land owner today in GA that is interested in a course. The property has a large creek that goes through the property with very fast moving water. I would think retrieving a disc that went in would be dangerous.

Because I'm working with them through this discovery period, I didn't bring up that danger...would love to see a course here...the lay of the land almost dictates playing along side the creek or over the creek on at least have or more of the holes.

It's a tough find if you miss the fairway here... Never saw it happen but I'm sure it has.

Aaaand that doesn't stop anyone that I've seen/played with. I know people that have even raided that once a month or so looking for free plastic.

If i throw a disc and its OB, I'm getting that disc back as long as it can be grabbed safely. I'm not losing 15 bucks for that.

Designers need to assume that discers will ignore posted signs and go to any lengths to retrieve errant throws. There's a hole at Barnett Park in Orlando (hole 6, northside) which requires a big spike hyzer out of a shoot over a fenced retention pond for the first 1/2 of the disc's flight. Roughly 20-30% of throws from that tee end up over the fence. As would be expected, the fence has been vandalized to create an opening for disc golfers to retrieve their discs.
