A pro disc golf course designer is not applicable in every situation. For example, Lake Lenexa is not ready for a pro disc golf designer. The park is going to add features in stages over the next 2-4 years. Hiring a pro designer right now wouldn't make any sense. Any course going in to this new park will be inevitably altered/tweaked/changed many times over the next few years. It will be more ideal to hire a pro designer when the entire park is complete, and the flow of foot traffic in the park is finally determined. The best use of a pro designer is where you have an entire park completely devoted to disc golf, with little or no conflict anticipated with joggers, dog-walkers, soccer moms, etc. You want your final layout to be determined by a pro designer. Otherwise I believe money would be wasted in hiring one. Now if a pro designer would come out and design a course for free, then bring one in immediately.
