Swope: Hole 16. I have seen some amazing shots on it by people who throw incredible drives or rollers, but it annoys me, regardless if I get a 3 or 4.

H2Oworks: I hate Hole #12. It is a nicely placed hole when basket is long left or right, but I hate it.

Cliff Drive: I agree that Hole #12 is hard, but I like that.

Prairie Center: Any hole with pine trees....ha ha

Wyco: Hole #16 isn't all that great. Maybe I just need to see someone throw it really nicely.

Out of time........any comments or additions?

#17 Down Under has always been my nemesis.  I can't help pulling the drive right through the right side of the fairway, smacking into those damned trees.

Try something a little understable with a little hyzer at about 90% power. Back off just a bit... you want it to flip a little as it snakes its way down the fairway to the green. As Mark Morales has learned... "let the disc do the work".

My two least favorite holes are #13 at waterworks.. I find the old parking lot way too many times,
plus the rising angle of that hill is a strain on my butt to walk up. My other least favorite is # 1 Rosedale
in the current placement. Middle long right tucked behind those %#&@*ing thorn trees. I always blow by
or hit a branch short and get a bogey.
RELAX!!!   I do All my own stunts!!!!!

That's what I did last week, and it worked like a charm.  I was trying to work something stable or overstable in there, but the hyzer flip shot is way better.

Rosedale #18 Middle has been beating me up for years. Trying to sneak that mid-range upshot between the tennis courts and the tree line. So many fours...

And yeah, hole 12 at Cliff Drive. I suppose it is questionable with the road and that EVIL cliff but it sure is a great hole for the pucker factor, especially with a head wind.

Gone for now, but will be back. Talking with Pat Guilfoil who said that they're resurfacing the courts, getting a new net and fencing, painting the light poles, creating a concrete path from the tennis court to the parking lot, and adding a concrete slab for another picnic table. Not sure when it will all be finished.

Excellent. That's good news. That will make the entire area nicer when it is done. They did the same thing with the tennis courts at WyCo a few years ago and it just makes the whole place nicer.

In the meantime though, some people are gonna get greedy on 18....You may even be able to birdie the C position with a bomb.

LaRon Harris aced the C position several years back. That is if you're talking about the position at the Northeast corner of the tennis courts. Not the longest placement we use as a practice basket most of the time. Whatever happened to that guy? According to the local ratings list he hasn't made a single appearance at a league this season so far.

I wish LaRon would hurry up and get hip-replacement surgery. He lost lots off power. He's been out of it most of two years now...

That hole is pretty nasty.
