Disc golf is trees, trees are disc golf. U are in a fantasy land where no one else wants to join you
I'm for trees 100%. But the difference is between 4 foot wide "fairways" and 6-8. I think a 4 foot gap 300 feet off the tee is ridiculous. That's all I am saying when cut down SOME trees. Make ACTUAL FAIRWAYS.

I said this before in the thread but people think I'm for wide open disc golf. If you can drive a small car down from tee to pin then that is a fairway. If you run into a tree then it's not. A car is roughly 6 feet wide. I think 6 is minimum.

Different ways to get to the basket, lots of a good and fair options when you know what you are doing and can execute them. I wouldn't change the course.

Baskets on the other hand...

maybe less chains but that is a whole different story/dead horse/ordeal...
For someone like me, I'm accurate and can dial in angles and lines. I could do reasonably well there I think myself, but again. This isn't about the old mans game. It just doesn't film well nor are the fairways and design very fair or good? 640 foot par 5 with a 4 foot fairway? It's basically like scramble golf. I don't know how else to describe it. You're going to hit trees so just scramble everywhere. Not a fun watch for me. I liked the other course better, though it had some iffy soft 4's and some good holes too. It was decent.

Your worried about film and "watching"

I would rather play and be tested then watch.

"scramble" golf, that is a skill that good players should have and should be tested on...

That's the part we are talking about in this thread.

Somewhere around here I have a T1 pole that I put in the drill press and put some extra holes in- it allowed for 2 inches movement of both the tray and the top for 4 inch total difference. Catching ability was not reduced much if at all. Maybe i will drag it back out and mess with it some more.
