A not great idea I had would be to get a surveyors stick from a home improvement store, slap a cheap ball golf pin flag on top, and then take a bucket of sand to stick the pin down in.

The bucket of sand would be, again, much heavier than I want.

Thought I had just now: I have a cheap tripod Im going to retire because one piece of it is not in optimal shape. I could figure out how to put a flag on top of that. Although, I wonder if that would just end up getting blown over too often.
I typically just go with the base of a tree. If the park has bin style (plastic) garbage cans. I use those as well. Those work really nicely for creating mando points at the soccer field I throw at, and doing pitch and putt stuff.

Quad chair is what I have used a lot. Normal to have a couple in my vehicle. Blasting a quad chair over with a Roc laser beam is satisfying.

Elegant idea: Pole/stake + inflatable pool ring.

Novelty inflatable punching bag perhaps.

First Ive heard of anything like this.

Most courses Ive played have some amount of non-player traffic. ZBoaz, has very little of that. There is an older dude that wanders around the course and I was told hes been known to steal discs. First and only encounter, he wandered through a couple of holes during a tournament round. He wandered past the pin as we were finishing upand yes he was in the way and a distraction. Proceeded to wander ahead of us as we were on the teebox of the next hole.

I actually saw this happen 2 weeks ago. A guy throws an MD3 and before the shot has even settled, a dude passing by hops off his bike and runs over and grabs it. What is really wild is you might think that this is something that a kid would do. It was a white haired man in a full cycling suit.

Dude chases after him and forgets the FD2 or FD3 that he threw beforehand. Then someone else grabs that up before he remembers and goes back to it.

Dude came in pretty hot thinking I took his FD. But he was having a bad day, so no worries. I just don't want him thinking I have his disc. I offered to give him a quick ITB.
