Can't wait for trees to grow? Telephone poles last an awful long time. And oddly enough, they tend to get chopped off at the knees by cars pretty regularly. I doubt it would be very hard to get your city to donate their damaged poles. String some wires or rope between a parallel row of poles to make a lane. Want to make it even tougher? Encourage players to toss old shoes over the wires like a city street (or that tree that used to sit at Morley Field in San Diego). Wires of different heights and angles with shoes as well to provide more obstacles? Sounds cool to me. A gimmick? Possibly, but better than a 340 ft open shot in a flat field that does nothing more than get you from hole 1's basket to hole 3's tee (I'm looking at you Barber Park hole 2).

As I saw written in the guest book at Baca; "Mad max meets disc golf." The course designer did a lot with little to work with.

Default Log stacks

How do you get the logs stacked that high without falling on people?

Here are a bunch of pics of our local course. Rail road ties can be free if you just ask local train yard. Garage sale sights have materials cheap some times too. Just need a truck. So many options.

Instead if the the obvious triple mando, this could be more interesting if you made the first and last hoops Mandos through them, with the second one being a mando around/ outside rather than through.

The beauty of this situation seems to me its potential for variable mandatories - none, any 1, 2 or all 3, at any given meet. For informal matches, 'your' group could decide amongst each other to sweeten your side bets, which is much less 'deterministic'...of course there are multiple fantasy iterations of this idea, the most interesting being a combination of this set-up with some elevation changes...brainstorming can be fun.

For the more competitive course designers, a single 'hoop' like this, even smaller in scale, would put that bamboo fence at winthrop to shame...and be less costly to maintain in the long run...

Just make the 3rd hoop a mando. If you can get through it off the tee while missing the other 2, more power to you.

If you need a 2nd or 3rd shot to get through it, you've already got enough problems.
