I got these baskets last wednesday and I've already: Lost my Rhyno and Roc3 in the woods across the street. Wife drowned my warden in the pond. Threw my Maiden into a fire. Mortality rate at my home
course has exceeded the rest of my 2+of playing.

The rhyno roc3 and warden will probably be found. the maiden is melted a bit but might be ok. I need to go to the used disc store and stock up on expendable discs instead of using the ones from my bag!
How far is the water carry? That looks fun.

I love sentences that only make sense to disc golfers, and sound totally absurd to everyone else.

Depending on what type of nets they are, they could be used for driving practice. That way you can have a nearly complete practice area.

the pond is probably 1 - 1 1/2 acres. Its shared ownership between myself and the 2 lots to the west.

East of me is public property under development. They are putting in some trees for a border. I will probably move basket A that direction once they are done.

Hole 6 is currently my nemesis. I keep using too understable discs OR not enough hyser and the disc goes straight across the road into the brush.

Hole 9 used to be off the deck but it was a blind shot and there is a nice tree tunnel there along the pond. Originally I thought the people might use that lane for hole 2 but so far everyone throws across the pond.

After losing my 2 best putters (might be 3 I think Odin ran off with an Avair), I now see an extreme need to keep my good discs separate from the home course discs. I want to let people play without caring about the discs. This weekend I plan to stop by a used place and pick up a bunch of putters (and dragons if there are any).

Time to buy some Lightning Rubber Putters for $3.49 each, they float in water, plus free shipping if you spend $50 - https://gottagogottathrow.com/collec...29370521976884
