This course is in need of three things. A chainsaw, 18 smaller baskets and remarking all those par 4's and 5's to 3's and 4's. What a terrible design and watch.

640 feet par 5? What are we doing here? 400 foot par 4's?

Cut some fairways out, put smaller baskets in, change the pars and boom, it's a great layout.
That in bold tells me all I need to know about your skills.

"What a terrible design"
"it's a great layout."

Pick one.

It's NOT about my skill. I've never played that course nor do I ever plan on it. I am simply pointing out what I see as flaws as a fan of watching Pro disc golf. It was a terrible watch. The other course in round 1 and 3 was decent maybe above avg.

When I say "it's a great layout" that would be after cutting a hundred trees, reinstalling smaller baskets and remarking the pars.

Design a smaller basket that catches consistently and I will happily run some events on them at one of the courses I have sway over. Trot out the Bullseye/Marksman type junk and I will happily drive to the scrapyard to drop them off.

You should have led with that. I'm not a mind reader.

Cut a hundred trees? Thank god you're not in charge of installing courses.

I imagine a size between current and bullseye would be optimal. It'll give some challenge to putting while catching center hits repeatedly.

Did you see that course? Each hole has 100+ trees. 5 trees per hole would be literally nothing out there.

This exactly...but u will lose 99% of disc golfers with wanting to cut down more trees. Not even an option or a good idea.

Watch the dglo coverage...20mph winds...a terrible watch, extreme boredome.

Disc golf is trees, trees are disc golf. U are in a fantasy land where no one else wants to join you

I would really enjoy playing this course.
Shaping shots between the trees, down the "fairway"
Different ways to get to the basket, lots of a good and fair options when you know what you are doing and can execute them. I wouldn't change the course.

Baskets on the other hand...

maybe less chains but that is a whole different story/dead horse/ordeal...
