Your whole post indicates that you don't really get what Eric and I are saying, but I'll address this one again.
The SDGA is working to put in disc golf courses on the land that the city allows, and the SDGA will try to make the best course that they can at People's Park and Camp Sekani (the two pieces of land that we currently have to work with for new courses). I don't know the shape they will take or exactly how challenging, but they will not be pitch and putts.
If we were the ones trying to get something in at Plante's Ferry, then you would very likely see a much easier course than High Bridge being put in due to the available land to work with there.
The majority of SDGA members and people giving money to us at tournaments and weeklies want to improve their game and want to challenge themselves to get better and EARN birdies. There is no better feeling than birding a hole for the first time, and then becoming better at the game and birding it often.
I also don't understand how you want easy holes, then you say that Eagle Ridge is a "joke of a course." Especially when you say that you want hole 13 in the normal position, since it is similar to the holes at Eagle Ridge.
Your message is confusing at best.
If you do want to be a proactive member of the SDGA and bring in some easier courses, then please put in the leg work to prove that you are serious. Find communities, organizations, and schools that are willing to fund and/or provide land for easy, more family friendly courses. Like I said before, if you do that then I guarantee that the SDGA will provide the needed support to get those courses in.
We absolutely do need some beginner and family friendly courses in the area, but we currently are short on funds for even one course and have our plate full with beautiful pieces of land.
