I had been meaning to post this gem for awhile. nothing like missing a slam-dunk tap-in. the course is called The Path DGC located in Saraland Alabama. Its going to be a fun one to review.

I dunno, count me as one of those who wants more baskets to have close obstructions. Putting is way too easy as it is. I mean, maybe remove the green stuff on the left side, but I don't mind leaving a few of those smaller ones.

Some of the saplings are growing through the basket. It looks like the land owners didn't care enough to weed wack around the baskets from the time the course was installed in 2009.

Not cool, or too cool?



Does anyone else see the accusatory look the basket is giving me for leaving it out?

The really weird thing about it is that the surrounding area has been mowed?

Those green-leafed plants are magnolias --- its likely they want those to mature, as they are iconic southern trees. Or maybe a future jailhouse basket?

sounds like a basket with a only one way to putt at it on the course. One I played in Erie State Park New York called Shipwreck Cove is one that has a basket way more open then that but still a only one side to putt into the basket. It will suck when the large tree way to close to the basket dies on the course I have played. I do think at the course you are reviewing they might want to kill the tree at least and move the Magnolias to a better location, even better move the basket while they still can or they will have to put a second new pin placement in with new basket for the course, not just a new pin placement.
