^Depending on the aspect in question: the PDGA, manufacturers, course designers, land owners, local government, TDs, players.

I think as far as credibility and legitimacy of a disc golf course the 9 hole increments is a standard and a course advertising say 16 holes doesn't sound legit to me.

I don't know about "legit", but it strikes me as incomplete.

I'm sure there's no good reason for that, other than conditioning.

We began building a course in late 2004, one hole at a time. At various times we played a 7-hole course, an 11-holer, a 13-holer, and a 17-holer (so close!). We built the 18th hole in early 2007. When people ask me now when the course was built, that's usually the date I give (unless they're willing to hear the whole story). We weren't willing to hold a tournament until we got 18.

But I still think it's a matter of conditioning and habit.

On the other hand, as we kept building, we weren't reluctant to describe it as 20, 21, and 24 holes.....after which we started breaking it up into overlapping layouts. Hole-building continues to this day, but slowly.

Okay it is not that between 9-18 holes feels off, rather then a number like 10 or 15 seems to work as it is a number by 5's. It is really the numbers between 15-18 that feel incomplete as if the course was made a tad to bit or not enough land to get the 18 holes. anything past 27 holes for a single course seems a bit excessive as in most cases a course of that size could be made better by having longer/better holes to fix the amount made.
