I also have a problem with the idea that it is up to the person putting in the course to choose what basket they want. Yes, if it is outside of a club or private land then sure, that makes sense. It doesn't here. If Jack is coordinating with the KCMO P&R to get new baskets at WW then it should be as a club representative, not as an individual. In that sense I would rather have someone who is an official within the club coordinating with them.
(Note: Before everyone jumps down my throat about that, it is an example. I don't know that that is what is happening here, but if it is it is problematic. Club courses should be cared for, maintained, and everything else with the club and the P&R.)
Person putting it in, club representative, whatever you want to call it. I'm just referring to the individual(s) who are working with the P&R to install the course. It's their call. If you want it to be a "club" decision, then you need to put that petition in front of the board/club and get a motion passed that any new "club" courses be approved by the club as a whole with regards to basket selection. As for me, I'm good with whatever basket is used. So long as we have another course to choose from, I'm happy!
