Winton Woods in Cincinnati is a good definition of pitch and putt.

One where any player who has a basic throwing technique down can conceivably hit the 10 m circle from most if not all of the tees.

The fact that it will grow into a "park like" course is a pretty big bonus.
Thanks. This is kind of how I feel, too. We want kids to enjoy it, so it can't be a championship level course. I am of the thinking that if there are baskets in the ground, it is a good thing.

Good point. I wish we had more trees in place, but in a few years they will be nice.

Agreed. I have grown to appreciate our local pitch and putt layout because it truly makes you think about what shot you are going to take, rather than just hucking it. My game is growing as a result.

Mostly flat, and we are planting some trees, so in the future there will be more obstacles.

Pitch and putt, or not?
mos def pitch and putt

For pro/advanced players perhaps. Not for everybody though with three 400'+ holes and an average of 329'.

Need to ace #s 4, 12, 15 and 16. Aced the Other holes at one time or another over the past 30 yrs. BTW they are going to do a major redesign here at some point. Heard its no longer going to be a p n p when finished. It's the most dangerous course in the area.

600' unobstructed holes would qualify as well?

More than 1/2 of the course is over 300'. It may not be a very challenging course, but I'm not hanging the PnP tag on it....

4 & 12 are the longest holes and if you hit the chains it'll be a surprise if it sticks. You've hit more than I have there but when I hit #11 all everyone said was...."it's about time".

I keep hearing about the redesign, from the sources I've seen seems there's a good chance it'll happen. The only time I play that course is before noon. I've played all 18 in 20 minutes.

Honestly, if it does get the pitch and putt label, I am not going to lose any sleep over it. We are on a middle school campus, so we are working with the space we have. I was really just curious, since it is a pretty subjective definition.

In the end, everyone can find their purpose for it. If you have a big arm, use it to work on your short game. If you don't have a big arm, you can use all facets. I am just excited to get it in the ground when the day is through.

Just out of curiosity, will there be shorter tees marked for the middle school students? 400' is pretty frustrating when it's your first time picking up a disc and it takes 4-5 throws to get close enough to miss a few putts.
