I was thinking about starting to build an object course this Summer up at my cabin, and was wondering if anyone had any good advice in which to share. The property is 30 acres in size, and 90% of it is covered with Norway and Jack pines. Lots of fun minor (20-25') elevation changes, and frontage on both sides of a stream that wiggles its way through the property.
The property is out in the middle of nowhere (around 15 miles from the nearest town...of 800 people, lol), so it would never get much "play" from disc golfers out there. Consequently, it would be more one of those courses designed for me and my friends/family to enjoy than anything (although others would be welcome to play if they are respectful of the property). I've designed 14-15 holes in my day and one course with baskets...but never an object course. Well, not counting the stuff I did as a kid back in the 1970s and 1980s, anyway. :-)
Any advice for me? It'll have to be a putt-and-approach type of course...as the thick woods and slim amount of clearings will pretty much eliminate one's drivers from play. I still do want to make some very tough 3s though...even if most/all of the holes are under 300 feet in length. Thanks!
