I learned this; This course is NOT a bomber course. It could be played with a (insert the name of your favorite mid-range here). With that one disc (plus putter) you could play the course to a sub-par round.

 No way!

 I agree with every other post on here but this one!

As witnessed by me and two other people during the round.

Buzz/Hornet Midrange 300-325 foot throws
Challenger Putter 200 foot throws

hole 1: putter or midrange and a putt.
hole 2: midrange/midrange and a putt.*
hole 3: putter or midrange and a putt.
hole 4. midrange/midrange/midrange and a putt.*
hole 5. midrange/midrange/midrange/midrange and a putt.*
hole 6. midrange and a putt*
hole 7 midrange and a putt
hole 8 midrange/midrange and a putt*
hole 9 midrange/midrange and a putt*
hole 10 midrange/midrange and a putt *
hole 11 midrange/midrange/midrange and a putt
hole 12 midrange/midrange/midrange and a putt*
hole 13 midrange/midrange/midrange and a putt*
hole 14 midrange and a putt *
hole 15 midrange/midrange and a putt
hole 16 midrange and a putt *
hole 17 putter or a midrange and a putt
hole 18 midrange/midrange/midrange and a putt*

* indicates an extra shot may be needed if conditions are not optimal.

If you piecemeal the course together cautiously you will do fine. When you "take the risk" and fail, you lose and inflate your score. You can birdie holes: 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 16, 17 this way. "Long bombs" will give you birdie shots on holes 2, 5, 6, 8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 16. But most of those are high risk birdies, which most often turn into bogeys. Which is the evil genius of the course. It caters to the ego of a player. You want it, you go for it, you pay for it.

My best round came throwing only a QMS and I think I shot a 76 there.....but having the Bomber capacity sure would have helped at times....but then playing smart is also good, and keeping it in between the lines is easier with a mid-range, and hence the logic by some there Tank.....

I do only throw the QMS ~300, but in Des Moines this weekend I was able to get close to the 350 range.....

I was throwing it pretty dang far in INdianola.....only to watch it go into the water on Hole #5......I had that one in the bag since the "new bag" in 2009 after the car was stolen, so it had been pretty good.....but alas, its fish baby holder now......the good thing for me is that I "happened" to have 3 more QMS's in the car, and used my "locastro model QMS" for the afternoon round at Ewing.....though 4 grams heavier it replicated many of the same shots....

Why it was flying so far, wind, autumn breeze?  IDK, I also threw in a wonderful Pink Vulcan in the water as well on that same hole.....glad I had a partner, but we still took a 4.....

It's PDGA "Appoved."
Missouri....our state animal is sterile, our state rock is lead, and we elected a dead guy to the U.S. Senate.  Of course, he was the best candidate.

Heavily Wind aided, it did make it around the corner only to have me facemask the putt.....
