Default How do u prevent the freaking flickers from flicking?

Theres a hole on my course that I moved due to safety concerns of reckless flickers flipping anny flicks into a walking path (I don't understand how its possible but they manage it) now that its moved they continue to reckless flick this far flung flick on a more dangerous line that in my mind is even more impossible.......please throw a backhand.....wtf?

Any other strategies anyone has used to prevent this madness?

making courses very challenging tends to run away the chuckers here.

Mandos won't work (cuz they won't be honored by most)........My advice would be is to take a few guys that forehand out to help with the placements and put everything in such a place that throwing a forehand is not even a thought in their minds........IMO thats the only thing that will work, the flickers will definitely not stop flicking..........Unless..........you hold a couple clinics a month for backhands.......

Does the hole have an actual LHBH line, or are lefties/'flickers' just in trouble regardless? Is the problem discs fading too far to the right? Because a hole forcing newbie forehand players to try anny flicks sounds like a recipe for errant shots. :P

If you design a hole hoping that people won't take that dangerous line and will stick to the recommended shot then you've already lost that battle.
