In ball golf the green is special. The grass is trimmed so perfectly that a small ball rolls [mostly] predictably across its surface. Have you even stopped to consider this horticultural marvel?
In disc golf we have a 10 meter ring. You can't even see it most of the time. "Am I outside of 10?" we routinely ask, not even sure if we are inside this ethereal realm we call the green. Putting inside of this 10m ring is pretty routine and often shots from much longer drop. There is no real connection to ball golf in our concept of a green.
Or is there? I propose that the green in disc golf is not the 10m circle, but a much larger expanse... say 150' just for arguments sake. Almost anyone can approach to the pin from that distance. For Pros and advanced folk that distance should be an automatic 2-putt or even a long throw in. Does that seem an extreme range for a green? Well for an amateur in ball golf a 80' putt from the "green" can still result in a 3 putt and often does.
In disc golf the space between you and the basket on our 150' green can be littered with trees and there's almost always wind to contend with (part of our green is invisible) so you're not guaranteed a 2-putt from that distance. Sorry, but no one said putting was easy. Great players just make it look that way.
Why does it matter? Because it has great implications for our determination of par and the way we design our courses. No par 3 should really be inside this circle for instance. Tee shots on a par 4 should not reach this "green" area. Players should have to approach into it after a solid drive. 2 fantastic and long shots on a par 5 might conceivably get you on the green just like happens in ball golf, but it should be a rare occurrence.
I know there are those out there that think that we should not strive to emulate ball golf, but I say we're fools if we don't take our lessons from them when and where we can. You might be a frisbee purist, but you're still playing golf. Get over it an enjoy it and give a nod to our ball golf predecessors in the process.
