Re: Island Greens
Karl, I don't disagree with the different shaped green concept. Placing the basket in the center of a circle just isn't difficult enough for putting. Shifting the pin forward, raising it and trying different green shapes all help produce a better scoring pattern. If you make the landing area of the green too large, the hole doesn't play much different from an easy par 3 which loses the intended effect of an island green. It just requires properly blending the elements available in disc golf for us to get a similar effect that island greens have in ball golf.
