    Oh Holy Crud! Is it located where the original placement was? Wouldn't the ladder make it *much* easier to park the hole by hitting or aiming for the ladder? Or, is it not there all the time?

    Awesome song.

    The basket looks awesome too. I can't wait to get out there and play the course

    Default Ladder

    I wouldn't be doing my job (I'm a safety engineer in real life) in saying that the ladder does not meet OSHA regulations for proper railing for a stair. I don't think that OSHA would ever come into the park because I don't know how things are run in Indiana. 29 CFR 1910.23 (d) & (e). Just saying.

    Other than that it looks good.

    I have the same question in general as Daniel. You could just hit the ladder.

    Again, it looks really cool and I'm looking forward to trying it out. I have never played a course with a hanging basket.

    I just played it this morning and it's saaa-weeeet. Honestly, if you hit those stairs you might bounce out to be better parked but you could just as easily end up underneath it with a really difficult shot--bottom line, the stairs will giveth and the stairs will taketh away. To be honest if you get to where they are you probably wouldn't have enough velocity on your disc to go screaming past by much anyway (unless you seriously over-threw the hole and only the guys with really big arms---who tend to know when to let off anyway,) so I don't see it making much of an issue.

    So, if the two meter rule is in effect and you end up on top of the basket, which is not considered in, and by my estimate it looks to be two meters above the ground. I would assume a stroke would have to be taken. Am I reading too much into this or is this a legitimate concern?

    One solution would be for nick to never let the two meter rule become effective during the BTO.

    On top of the basket would be bad enough---try on top of the beam!

    The advisory board insisted on a handrail for safety reasons. The basket itself may be another 6ft to the right from original location. If the disc lands on top of the basket just as normal it would be a stroke. If it lands under the stairs it would be just like a ob island. The stairs are about two feet wide so it's not that big a ob I've seen nobody go under so far today I did hit the steps which left me directly beside the basket so I did a Vince Carter 360 windmill dunk for my par. It feels much better taking a 3 on it then it did before the hanging basket was installed. Give love a chance pick me up on the way out I'll be happy to school you the local route
