Maybe painting them black with white or yellow numbers would reduce that problem?

But would that make the basket more visible from a far?

No. Disrespectful chuckers are everywhere! Worthless and useless peopel that would vandalize what someone else spent their time and money on.

The extra nuts on the end of the bolt is a great idea! Man I hate when there is even one bolt.... Fat hands! haha

This is really cool. I'd love to see a course with this in powder blue. And the best part is it doesn't have the disc repelling properties of the bogey belt.

Now, I just glanced over the writing part (too much jargon for me) but is there a bolt going through the actual plate? Or could you just lift it straight up otherwise?

Nice job dude! PVC isn't great for the environment, but you can do so much with it. This is another good example. Well done!

Why not cut one piece of pipe 10ft thick walled into sections and sand off the burrs save like $100?

If Calvert implemented this I would raise my review at least a half a disc.
Sweet improvement, I know you love that course.
