Nobody has really suggested this, actually the opposite. The idea is not to build a course bigger than it's venue. If 6 nice recreational holes are possible at North Park do that, don't force 9 for 9's sake. Take all of this input and use it wisely - it will help you in the long run.
And please stop with the dividing lines! Dan is not an elitist, if you call anyone elitists on this forum, than you have to throw Des and Jay under the bus as well, don't stop there - me, Steffen, Harper, Clue, Kenton, Gmoney, Claring, Fausch, etc...we are all disc golfers first and foremost. The Pros most of the time have been around the longest, and some Ams too like Fausch. But it's not us and them, it's US! some of us just shoot better scores sometimes, but we all love the game the same.
Jon Latch designed "The PETE" this is a very nice course and Jon didn't try to do too much, but delivered on safety, fun, and variety (for open type course)
Jon is a great example of a pro that learned by listening and through his travels and experience in building courses. He has matured as a designer over the years by being receptive to input.
Dan you are an asshole...I think it's great. You my friend are one of the fine spices on the rack!
