The worst hole... .... Is it too easy to play and therefore unremarkable? Is it too difficult and therefore discouraging? Was the designer looking for a "filler" hole from one great hole to the next? I love Swope, and I hear that a long time ago the course was tree city. Now the trees are few and the lines are many. Does that make those holes which used to be tougher, worse or better?
The few holes that I dislike are the ones I play so often that I know what to throw, how to throw it and it comes without any effort or thought on my part. They lack aesthetic or athletic appeal to me. It could be course design, but unlike ball golf (tiger woods example from earlier post) disc golf doesn't get to pick where the courses go, we often have to take what we can get. And ball golf can shape, and reshape the land to make their courses challenging. Disc golf has to hope that the city doesn't want soccer fields.
So, if I had to pick a hole in KC, it would be all of the Parkville course. The course that everyone has forgotten because it's just so forgettable. The holes at Parkville make hole 12 at PC, hole 13 at Blue Valley, hole 4 at Cliff, holes 7, 2, and 18 at Waterworks, all of Legacy, all of Phill and all of the holes played with Doug, seem like USDGC of the midwest. Which gives me an idea... Does anyone have 18 portable baskets?
