Aka if there are safety concerns surrounding the course he doesn’t want anybody knocking on his door.

I had a bullseye in the past, really great practice putting basket, very heavy duty.
I don't know if it is still the case or not, but I was told years ago that permanent Titans were only sold as part of a GDS course design package. So if it is still the case, it has actually been the case for a long time. They don't want a bunch of Titans in stock, they order them when they have a course install sold.

Yeah, this is what I was referring to. Everybody seems to confusing the portable titans with the actual legit permanent ones. The portable titans are really solid for a portable and could probably be used as a permanent basket but anybody who’s played a Dave Mac course on real titans knows they’re not the same. Just must not be many in the wild outside of STL.

I think the Gateway baskets are fine. But, I don't have any issues with any of the higher end permanent baskets. They all catch great, with a flaw in all of them. Some catch hard putts well, others soft, some high putts, some catch better off the pole......

Very likely true.

Not long after we bought the land that became Hidden Ridge I reached out to all the big companies (at the time, DGA, Innova, Discraft, Gateway) to request quotes for 18 baskets. Gateway was the only one that never responded at all. DGA and Innova were super responsive, Discraft was okay, crickets from Gateway.

There's a dinky little 9 hole in the Chicago suburbs that has Titans (almost positive that they are the permanent version). Really doubt that one was a McCormick design.

In my limited experience, Titans catch very well and are built solid.

There were a set of titans on a private course outside of Columbia Mo(Garverland) for years. They caught unlinke any other basket I’ve ever seen. The Garverland titans had a pvc sleeve over the center pole that helped prevent direct center pole hits not spit back out. They’d hit it and just fall in the super deep basket.

I used to really want one for a practice basket, but have since realized that a basket that catches too well to practice on might not be the best idea.
