The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Last year we started fixing pin positions that had gotten too low over time. We also decided to add some more positions and some of those positions can be used for 2 or more holes. We probably put in a dozen new positions last year. Have you done anything like this at your course? I feel that this has drastically improved our course since now you wont play the same course twice. Every week you will see something different. And the shared positions give so many options. Also you can put out some super long holes for league if you want. Or make everything super short. Someone won league at 16 under in doubles when it was set up all short.

If I had my druthers, I would druther have multiple tee loctions in lieu of multiple basket locations. It does IMO create a different layout better then multiple basket locations.
Talking money here and for us to get cash is very hard. Also our limited space would make that nearly impossible.
One of the reasons that we have some shared pin positions is that we have a fairly tight course so we have to make do with the land that we do have. The city came in a few years back and took out almost all of two holes when they widened the nearby creek for storm water drainage. That has forced us to be creative. By using shared positions on a few holes we can maximize the space that we do have.

HCAP Pad and Pin Positions

Our HCAPS for 2010 are played fom our A Pads and B Pads, alternating each week. Each player has a seperate HCAP for each pad.

As of now we have played, 42 different pin positions from each Pad.

We hope to have at least 3 rounds for each pad/pin location by the end of the year.

I am curently keeping track of each score for every hole, from each pad and for each pin postion.

These stats will give us the info on how hard/easy each pad and postion is.

I like the idea of naming the layout, once our stats are complete.
Here at Dolese we have diffrent pin placements and they get rotated from long to short every spring and put back to shorts in the fall, i like having diffrent pin positions, cause i get bored with the same old course ALL the time. That's why I play alot more tournys now...except for the fact to win (try to win).
Ok Math Majors, trying to find the formula for how many course layouts are possible!!

18 Holes

3 Pads per hole

3 pin postions per hole

anybody? anybody?
Lessee...I am probably wrong, but let's simplyfy...one hole has 9 different options with 3 tees and 3 basket locations...correct?

...18 times 9 is...162...is that right?

as my algebra teacher said, "show your work"
((((((((((((((((((9x9)x9)x9)x9)x9)x9)x9)x9)x9)x9)x9)x9)x9)x9)x9)x9)x9) = 150,094,635,296,999,121

...or 9 to the 18th power...


Probably wrong though... :(
I think the answer would be 176,256.
I will do more research on this though.
