They are great baskets, but I'll have to see how much they can budget for me before I get my hopes up.

Spend more now, save a lot over 10+ years. The difference between the top $$ baskets and their close competitors is trivial ($25/hole). Go cheap and you'll regret it. We have 14 full courses in our county--2 with the 28 chain Innova Pro, 10+ (a few courses have enhanced layouts) with 24 chain Innova Pro, one with 24 chain DGA Mach Vs (has the colored "blade") and one with Discraft's Chainstar. Do not go cheaper! Some of our Charlotte DGers can debate what is best; they all catch but spit outs are more a function of the thrower than the basket.

If your looking to go cheap i'd stay away from the sports for permanent installation. They don't seem to weather years well. Go with the DB5/DB3. I couldn't tell the difference between the old 5 and new 3. We have 28 DB5 at Joralemon Park. They have been in for 7 years and no sign of rust or anything. They require a bit more tweaking. We used little metal shims where the poles go together to make sure they sit plumb. And we added inner chains. But that's an upgrade you can do after the course is established and you can raise some more fund. Bottom still if you can afford them get the Discatcher pro 28's

If you talk with the DGA you can get the Mach II's for about $250 a piece for 9 plus shipping. Those will be just fine for a course in a private community.

I understood their concern, but it certainly made it difficult to see the baskets on the heavily shaded course.

Discatchers can be purchased in colors other than yellow, if something less obtrusive is desired.

Perhaps not applicable to your installation, but there are other vehicles that can hit baskets. Mowers, in particular, but other Parks Dept. vehicles too. A good hit will take out any basket, of course, but a heavier-duty basket will survive a bump a lot better.

looked into the DB3's and it looks like a decent basket for the price. Definitely one to keep in mind, thank you.
