I don't like milk trucks on the course, as an obstacle. I'm not starting a thread explaining that most players don't like milk trucks.
You have two hands full from last year at Codorus alone.

Oh my bad, in my quest to call out bad ideas by people trying to turn disc golf into ball golf I got confused with what bad ideas belonged to whom. You're right and I'm sorry.

Hey guys, 86% of people who bothered to take this contrived poll on a small disc golf website, agreed with my predetermined answer.

I'm just going to assume that you've never taken a statistics course before?

Why are you so offended that people don't like raised baskets and artificial OB? Like it's some surprise people don't like them.

That's not what I'm even commenting on.

Why don't you understand that this isn't an accurate or even valid poll?

Go find your disc after the round if you need to.

More annoyingly to me is roping off tons of regular grass. Just make the basket smaller and get rid of the dumb ropes. You land further away, you got a tougher putt. Not drop 10 feet from the raised basket and tap it in (like many of these locations). It's just so weird to throw it one area and now move to another area like a drop zone as well. The rules with all these OB spots is ridiculous. You can even move up or 60 feet back sometimes. It isn't equitable to where/how you threw the shot. Nor is the shot penalty with the roped off area. OK whatever. Rant off.
Ok, fine.

What happened to "RANT OFF"?

So in the last thread, you said that you were thinking about building a course and now it's going to be done in a week's time?

A championship level course with 18 holes and baskets that have no chains?

Can't wait to see photos and/or video!
