Re: Top of Texas News
There are a couple of other threads (one is in the course design area and another is in other PDGA topics I think - I don't know how to provide a link for you) that I have explained my thoughts on about this subject. Basically, I want to add some areas (similar to hazard areas in ball golf) that will make players consider their shots a little more carefully. I don't want to install these areas everywhere on the course, just a few scattered around. On our course here, we have several areas that are depressions in the surface of the park (nothing too severe, just obvious depressions). I believe that we can use some of these sinkholes as "Hazard" areas. We will be discussing how best to make the penalty for landing in a "Hazard", some want it to be a penalty similar to OB. I would prefer stance restrictions (to make the next shot more difficult), while others would like to see a re-location of the lie (drop zone). I'm not narrow-minded on the penalty, I just want to see some added difficulty.
