I think I saw this done at Bryant and/or Waterloo (it's hard to remember the details after so many courses in a short time). I'd also heard someone that had an idea of doing that at Steilli, each layout being a different color code, and have a ring of tape on each basket pointing where to go next. I think that'd be a great aid in figuring out how to get around there.
Ah, I gotcha. A little note by hole 1 explaining what the tape is for may be a big help. If I remember correctly it took me a few holes to figure it out. Then again, I'm not the sharpest crayon in the shed.
