Alright, now I'm sorry about the unnecessary apology. I didn't realize I could go back and edit my mistakes

Edit the apology, too. Otherwise, this thread is in danger of a serious derailment over your Freudian slip.

I don't think 500' is the # to start at for longer holes. I much prefer courses that have at least 3 holes that push 700' or more.

Think about it for a minute, take a fairly average Am2 player who throws 350' and you've got a 150' up shot (yawn...) and a tap in for a three. Get into the 700' range and now we're talking about rewarding a potentially risky second drive to the pin with an easy putt, or punishing an uncontrolled drive with a long putt/pitch up and drop in. I know a lot of players groan at longer holes but they are a necessary evil that generates pretty good scoring separation.

It's a good topic, and an old thread.

Have we changed our thoughts in 6 years??
I think, yes.
Being exposed to more and more great courses in the last 6 years should make us re-think the great course debate.
I think length is becoming more and more relevant as the "big" arms are becoming more common.

But not just open long holes as is the effect of needing other challenges to the course to make them better.

Another thing they need is working baskets that are in okay working order, maintained with no broken or missing parts or at least replaced even if with non brand parts on some baskets like having to replace a fully rusty chain set or missing S hooks on a basket. This helps insure a great course. Also keeping the baskets the same or as close as the same as one can, do not replace a damaged basket with a different model like a Mach V for a modern Mach II to save money as much as a modern Mach II looks like a old cage Mach V they are slightly different baskets in more then just the Disc Cage height and how durable the baskets are. Also do not replace with a different brand entirely just because that is your favorite basket as that is not fair to people, thought some baskets are the exact same model just within in the same company with the other brands logo on the basket for a bit less.
