Has any ever approached a city and asked them if you could dig up their pins and move them, they dont have tee pads just markers adn There is enough room, this couse has been here since '82 and it seems like a waste of good baskets, it would only take an afternoon and 8 guys

It's actually not hard to do, really. But you will need to talk to the parks director, or find out if anyone is in charge of maintaining that particular park. And also if there is a local club who designed it or course designer - just common courtesy. I would suggest two options:

1) consider leaving the pins where they are and just changing the tee locations. This will make life easier, and when you propose the idea to the parks people, remind them this won't cost them a dime. That's probably their biggest concern. But you need to have a map of the current layout and a map of your propsed layout to show them. Point out the lack of safety concerns in your new design and point out the increased challenge as well.

2) moving baskets is a pain, but we've done it in the quad cities. We did it by hand (shovel, actually, ha ha). Dig on one side of the basket down to the bottom of the concrete, so you've got a slope. Chain the basket to a pickup truck or skid steer (easy to rent), and drag it out of the hole. We left the chains and cage on the basket, just to save time and didn't end up with any bending (but be careful, just in case). Have 6-8 guys throw the basket into the bed of the truck or bucket of skid steer, and move it to the new location. If you can't get an auger to drill holes, you're back to digging by hand (which is a pain). It's doable, but not "fun". We left the original conrete on the pole and just buried it again. Some people like to break off the concrete and repour, but that's kind of a waste, really.

Either way, you need to have a new layout proposed to the parks people and have their blessing (and help if possible). they may be able to throw a parks guy your direction to make it easier. Sometimes if they're union, they'll want to do all the work themselves with you supervising - that's really nice, but don't count on it...

Marty67, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this forum is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Marty67, I have no problem with people loving small town courses that suit their game.

I think the major argument with your post is how mad you get at people for not liking those courses. Just because people don't like them does not mean they are inexperience, uneducated, less travel disc golfers that only like big city golf courses.

I hit up any course that I am near on road trips. I play them to see what's out there, some I like most I don't. It's a matter of opinion. One of my favorite courses is in Belle Plaine, a small town. Small town courses are great for expanding the game to communities not exposed to the game, even if the courses are sub-par.

Oh yeah they invented a program called Microsoft WORD it has a handy tool called spell check. You might want to use it from time to time.
