This is kind of the same information we have received here a couple times. It does not seem as if MM is looking to disclose any information, just teasing us with hope that HB will not die. I expect in his own time he will share.

Have you ever played on them? I've played a couple courses with green prodigys, in the woods, and had zero issues. In fact, they were far easier to find than any silver basket without a band. They are bright green, it's not like they are making them in forest green.

Human eyes see more shades of green than any other color, so it's pretty easy to pick up on bright green, even with a darker green background.

Agreed. Green-banded baskets can be quite visible, depending on the shade of green.

The old chestnut layout was pretty fun and the campground course for night golf. Please keep it! Why not just pull the baskets during events?

The Prodigy baskets are definitely the right shade of green. Very visible. We have them locally here at River Park in Benton Harbor and throughout the seasons they stay very visible against a variety of shades of natural green.

If you plan to do a Tiki course, locating it on the Chestnut site seems to make the most sense for both local and tourist access. It's right on County C for visibility. There will be parking, rest rooms, check-in location, nearby power for all kinds of LED course and basket lighting plus I seem to remember the County added a few lights on the highway. It's next to the camping area for access all hours. A true 18-hole Tiki course with most holes between 50-125 feet could weave in and out of the mostly wooded space of the original Chestnut 9 and leave much of the big open space (where the big basket is mowed into the hill) for festivals.

yes a local course has them, ran a league at said course. Bright green during the spring and fall is no bueno for me. We will just agree to disagree on this, green anything in the woods, i dont care what shade doens't work for my vision. Maybe it does for yours and a majority of the other human eyes you know but most people in my area that have played this course think along the same lines as me.

I found his "Met with the owner, made a down payment, and bought Highbridge Hills Disc Golf Megaplex, on Sunday" to be a lot more substantive than all that's preceded it.

Credit where credit is due......though the definition of owner is a complete unknown.
