Here's a little razzle dazzle from the course designer(s) of Secret City DGC of Knoxville, TN. This may be the closest proximity I've yet to see a tee from the preceding basket.

Pros: finding next hole is a snap

Cons: Ace runs can be dangerous

Looks like Winton Woods without the crappy asphalt tees.

What I didn't appreciate about Winton was that asphalt around some of the baskets. Don't know how many it actually was because of the snow, and it probably wasn't all that bad... but I did notice it, because discs hitting asphalt grinds me.

Looks like an another classic example of a Parks and Recreation design. "but laying out a course is so easy," said the park worker (with absolutely no concept of the sport) to his/her park manager.

Basket manufacturers should push harder to make sure there's some input from someone who knows what they're doing. Will that ever happen? God no lol

Nothing like a kidney shot to wake you up early in the round. The odds of getting hit are probably fairly slim, as it looks like a low traffic course. It would appear that this courses is a well kept secret, even from the locals

Might be a good idea for basket manufactures to include guidelines for safe basket installation. I've never opened any new in the box basket, but I'm sure they come with some printed instructions.

Perhaps recommending a minimum distance from the next tee or adjacent fairway that a basket should be placed, based on the density of "natural buffer" between the basket and area to be protected from flying discs.

Point being that open and lightly wooded placements require greater buffer distance than baskets buried in dense woods or placed in a pocket surrounded by trees and dense brushy growth that disc aren't likely to penetrate and maintain high velocities.

For all I know, some manufacturers may already include such guidelines. Like I said, never opened a NIB basket myself.

But your point is well taken: there's no substitute for an experienced player and better yet, designer, being involved.

Unfortunately, all the Cincy "Steady Ed" courses have those on every hole. I wasn't around when they were first built but they've been there since I was a kid. I guess it was for erosion control is the only thing I can think of. The course at Woodland Mound is where I started playing again as an adult and would play there every day pretty much for the first year or two. Between the gnarly old tees and those baskets rings, I've been back there maybe a dozen times in the last 6 or 7 years and its one of the closest to my house.
