You wouldn't think it sucked so bad if you weren't losing discs on it.

It's a good hole. I'm sure it'd skew scores well in a tournament. Or any event, for that matter. The current range is birdie to +6, I believe.

I haven't played it...how long is it, and what shape shot?

I'm guessing 230 (my whole card easily got putters there), left to right, because of the junk on the right you're forced to throw over the street for most of the shot, with somewhat of a ceiling. Erring too long goes all the way down the backside of hole 8. We just don't have too many shots like it around here.

An Excalibur is WAAAY too much disc for that shot. When it hits the ground at slow speeds it probably kicks and rolls, right? Try a midrange or a putter of sorts... and think about playing catch with the chains...

Just my 2¢ worth,

I was going to offer the same advice, but then I remembered that James Farmer threw some sort of a thumber with some sort of driver and was parked- I didn't want to presume that this gentleman didn't do the same thing.

I thought that it was a good hole that does erquire finese to get it correct...though I din't Bobby it last week, I did manage to take a 5 and the previous week I was under the basket.....On the under the basket shot I threw a Rhyno straight at it, and watched it drop, on the 5, I tried the little anny shot, and it didn't turn over...OB....then up shot down by middle 8 placement.....URGH....

I'd put it right about 230' with OB road left, and the schule to the right.....

The hardest thing about that hole in all honesty is that there is really no flat place to tee from.....

BAM!!  Would it be too much to tee from the road? Maybe there's too much traffic...

teeing from OB is never an option (unless you are at Cliff Drive during the Wide Open.....)

Safety first, that park has many cars through it, no way do we event think that way CD, come on this aint your first rodeo..... ::)

I like the hole but like jack said there is no real Tee area.  If it were a perm hole I would say put some dirt down and raise the tee up so you are throwing more level than up and ani.  I love the green .  Maybe a little deeper down the hill but it's crraaaazzy.

You could make a teeing area in the OB road IB.  That way, your throwing from IB and you get your level surface.

Yeah it was a lot of disc but I was bored and threw a giant hyzer forehand. Well up and high. Generally do use my putter. Just looking for new lines. Sorry I am horrible.....
