I utilise google earth to zoom in on areas I havent been able to reach yet, see if any features stand out.

Wildcat Bluff has added QR codes to the new teesigns so you can scan them and see drone videos of the hole. Not sure what other courses have this option.

I don't think I would do this at the tee but I would definitely check out drone footage of a course I was heading to for a tournament if I hadn’t played it yet or to see if it was worth going on a road trip to. The addition of a QR code to a tee sign is pretty easy though for those that might use it.

Late to the party, but agree w/ the consensus.
Designers generally do not 'relate' to the course's land via drone footage, but customers often do...I believe this is because drone footage can obscure the human scale of a golf course, as well as critical details, like prevailing winds or the perceptions of depth, for example...

As to islands in golf and the utter ridiculousness of what's already out there:

#17 at TPC Sawgrass is a pretty famous island green...think they've hosted some majors there...

Then there's: http://www.golfcda.com/the-floating-green/

read about what this island can do, then imagine what they're doing in Dubai...

Trump also built a huge waterfall near a green at his course in Los Angeles...just a taste of reality for the overly hopeful...some disc golfer really needs to get close to Elon Musk...
