Looks homemade. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't pay to play on that course

I am pretty sure there is a history of that basket in the unique basket thread

I think they are called Fly 18 baskets

Lake Stevens DGC (http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=642) just north of Seattle has them. (The course page calls them "Catching Target Park Series".) Different style basket on each hole. Some have you blocked on specific side(s). Pretty interesting. My first time through the course was maddening though. I'd have a nice approach to the basket, only to realize I was on the wrong side. Basically guaranteed a two putt regardless of how close you were.

Second time through I was with some locals who knew where you needed to lay up in order to have a good shot. I learned to appreciate the difference.

Timberlink in PA has these on a ball golf course, too. They added an inner set of chains to them. I think they called them deasigner pro baskets. And yes, by Fly 18.

I can tell you one thing for sure. Those baskets/chains are atrocious. I have played at that course and I couldn't stand them. You have to put way more on any shot to get a disc to stick...Also, the discs behaves differently off of basket hits. I hate how different these baskets are from typical ones. I want to play on baskets that are all similar.

P.S...the chains don't sound like chains...its so unrewarding.
