Default Most Unique baskets/targets you have putted into

I Have wondered what is the most unique course targets or baskets you ever got to play on. Can even be a single odd basket on a course.

I got to play a course that had homemade baskets from 1980 with a pole/post course in the spot since 1978, Omaha park had those Rebar home made baskets still in the 2000's. That was a treat putting into a piece of disc golf history.

Also got to play the old layout of the University St Mary near Winnona Minnesota, one hole basket was over water that had a old late 1940 to early-mid 1950's pickup truck 3/4 in the water, might have even been a WWII International pickup truck. The course has since been modified for player safety as some students strapped for cash would go in the nasty water for discs to sell online, so to stop that they moved the course to avoid that part of campus entirely and due to the Cross country Ski and running course is right near that spot on the other side of that pond with only some brush to stop the discs.

One thing I wish he did when I looked at the now possibly closed course, is that he made it so all bottom disc entrapment devices were the same height. The tops all appear to be same diameter or close enough that to me those are not a problem.

He did a great job of getting tee pads all something then just dirt, impressive for a home course.

The original targets at NSRA in Sedro Wooley were pretty impressive. My favorite was the grain chute one on hole 12. But the only picture on this site is the giant hole 18. Lame.

And of course someone is going to bring up the Lake Stevens baskets.

But nothing beats the natural targets at Spirit Ridge, made of bamboo and native woods.

I went to a KOA Near Kansas City Missouri and they had with big concrete pads under them to keep in place 3 Lighting DB-5 that had a second set of chain dded to them with an S hook in, closed off on the basket chain topper so the chain does not slide. The second set of chain was worthless due being thin lightweight aluminum that each chain is the same shape and size as full chain but thinner. For the second inner ring they used the main ring and got the length right for the second chain so the outer set fell naturally. It was not really a course, no tee pad/tee maker for the 3 baskets but I could almost have a small course, just marked the run up end with a mini for the first tee off when making a mini hole and practiced makeshift holes until the sun went down.

Not sure if this qualifies really, But the lighthouse basket at Silver Creek in Manitowac WI along Lake Michigan is pretty epic looking. And when the wind off the lake is up, pretty frustrating lol.

Back in 2014, about half the holes on the Grayling Rotary - Pine Knoll course handcrafted wooden baskets:

Not sure if they're still there, but I thought they added a bit of charm and character to the course, and I've never seen anything like them on another course.
