What is up with the bent placement? 2 at Cliff and #5 at Rosedale.  Is this the mowers running into them?

That's why on the courses I designed/co-designed, I surround the sleeves with softball to volleyball size rocks...

I backed my truck into the long #18 sleeve at Cliff so I wouldn't have to worry about it being there at league anymore. But yeah, blame the mowers... :D

Except there are problems with that as well.    A good solution is taking the grass out about 3 feet from the pole in a circle and landscape that with something that would be easily maintainable. 

River rock is nice due to the smooth surface of the rocks.   No jagged edges to rip your disc apart.

They look great. However the way they were mounted has made all the baskets a little bit low.

over time, those tops will become brittle and crack when people step on them/mowers run over them.  that is if they're not stolen before that.  there is no right answer.

well, here in River City...several courses already have, and they're probably going to go to this on all of the courses, the unused placements have a sprinkler head cover.  The placement in use has one cut so the pole can go through it.  It makes sense, the mowers go right over the covers and the pipes aren't exposed. 
I'm not sure of the expense involved, but it works here.

As far as height goes, to me that's a non-issue.  Maybe the manufacturers need to have 2 holes drilled for locks, one high and one low.  That way a raised sleeve or sub-surface sleeve could be used.
