I can go OB/horribly shank my drive due to natural pads instead of concrete ones. I'll still yo-yo inside the circle regardless of if it's a Mach I or a Mach X.

Agree. Also, as someone with an injury history in both knees and ankles I refuse to play courses that don't have concrete teepads of adequate length. I play this sport for fun and no matter how good a course is, if the teepads suck I won't be back.

I've seen a lot of dirt tee courses with a lot of traffic. I've never seen a course with substandard baskets that got any decent amount of play.

It has always struck me funny how I might have to climb into a thorn bush and face a 300 foot upshot while posed like I'm playing twister or maybe throw from atop oddly shaped moss covered rocks with a chance of tumbling 30 feet downhill into a river, yet so many have such high expectations for tee pads.

Thats because the course didnt dictate that you had to throw from a thorn bush or odd rocks, you did. You threw your disc there and now you have to live with the consequences. The course does dictate that we all have to throw from the same teepads though.

I love doing that today as well. I've also gone to a state parks with vast hiking trails, bring 2 discs and pick out targets in the distance as I hike. Man...time to do that again when the weather warms up a bit. lol..

I'm guessing you lose a disc every once in awhile.
I would love to see the look on some hikers face after finding a disc on some remote hiking trail!
