Thanks for the response - but how about: How many stakes are used to create a smooth line to measure curves with a tensioned "cable"?? Maybe DiscoGary could pipe in on this as well?
The On Course Ratings Systems guys did not tension the tape around turns. They put some stakes in the ground about 1 foot out from the inside of the turn and laid the tape on the ground in a radius around the turn. I can't find the difference in length between the tape under tension versus slack. It will be small.
