Hello, I have started this new subject with hopes of starting some dialog concerning course maintenance and course conditions. I have recently been placed in charge of maintaining our disc golf course. It's a few years old and has changed dramitically in a short amount of time. I have searched all over the web trying to find sites where people may be discussing maintenance issues, but I have only found sites from the course users, so.. here I am asking the course users for some feedback. My goal is to learn what I can in order to improve the course for anyone who comes to our course to play.
Our course is 9 holes, is in the middle of the woods, is very hilly, apparently rather challenging, the trees that are supposed to be obsticles are being killed off from soil compaction, the fairways are widening quickly, and graffiti on the baskets are becoming a problem. Why do people sign and date the top of the baskets? Is it because it is the only place to do so? If I painted board white and posted next to a tee box, would people sign there instead of defacing the baskets?
Any feedback would be appreciated and probably incorporated into improving our course.
