As a local colorblind club member once pointed out to me, it's not the best practice to use red paint on green grass.

Ready golf, but only if the whole card agrees.

One man's ready golf is another man's "Hey, get out of the way so I can hit it already!" golf.

I can attest to this. Finding red discs in fields of green grass is particularly bad. One of my most embarrassing moments in disc golf was, after my whole card helped search for one of my red discs for 10 minutes, discovering that I'd actually put my bag down on top of it without ever seeing it.

So, as disc golf adopts different kinds of areas (OB, casual relief, hazard) how should they be marked? Is there a set of universally distinguishable colors we could use? Or should we mark everything with white and always rely on a caddy book or tee sign?

That's a really good question. I personally just use white flags/paint whenever possible, but I've never had to mark out more than only OB areas. I'm guessing some design group or other has come up with color suggestions for dealing with (red-green) colorblind folks.. I know some video games have a colorblindness-correction mode, for example.
