There are for Majors, NTs, and A-tiers. Courses must be set up in their first-round configurations four days in advance of the first round of play for Worlds, three days in advance for other Majors and NTs, and one day in advance for A-tiers. From the Tour Standards document (page 4): "In the case of temporary holes and/or courses where targets are unavailable, the temporary configuration must be clearly marked for both the Tee and Target locations."

It would be good practice for B & C tiers to at least adhere to A-tier standards in this regard. It would at least prevent the sort of situation I jokingly suggested above.

Meh. Why bother? It'll still take ya another stroke to hole out.

Now, if you could move it before your disc lands ...

So if I can't level the basket, how much should a basket be tilted, before it is considered to have fallen over? Or How much "tilt" is acceptable as proper working order? Oh this basket is leaning at 45 degress against this tree, but I don't know that is was standing upright before the round, so I guess I should just leave it that way?

Levelling a basket simply makes sense. I have yet to find a purposefully made tilted basket. I would think that if one existed, it's upon the TD to inform the group that it should be left alone prior to the event.

Also, correcting a basket back to level is not the same as moving it.

That basket is out there somewhere. Awhile back someone posted a pic of a basket that had a pivot on the pole that would allow you to put it on uneven ground and level it. I tried doing several searches but couldn't find it...

I seem to recall that Bradley Williams "leveled" a basket during tournament play a few years back...

Default Level on any terrain

I have played several tournaments and this was used a few times for a temp basket on a hillside and an elevated target with the bottom of the basket at 5'. The legs are telescopic with countless configurations to make the target level.

Is that a re-purposed tripod or custom-built? Available for purchase?
