Hugh Cornwall ROCKED THE F'n HOUSE!
Now then.....quite the thread drift, but nice discussion here in Cliff Drive....back to disc golf....
12 - throw a straight drive and skip off the road at the basket.
16 - As a lefty, I think this is the worst hole ever. I could write an essay over how miserable this hole is.
As a Righty, #12 grabs you by the balls, and scares you to death from fear of the cliff nastiness, to the dangit OB. So you are blessed to be a lefty......
#16 is the exact opposite configuration, in that it is easier for a hyzer from a righty, (but why do mine seem to go OB on an anny route then?) but I am curious why you this is the "worst hole ever" I love how it comes like an hour glass with ob on both sides, and if the wind is in play it makes it tough on all approaches.
So let me know why you think that this hole is the worst one on the planet.......
Now I don't want to get into an argument over the front 9 versus the back 9, but the initial intent for those of you that may not know is that Cliff was designed with a 6-6-6 format to showacase many of the challenges of typical disc golf in KC. We have 6 tight technical holes, we have 6 holes with defined boarders, and 6 pretty much wide open holes to air it out. There is a piece of every game and aspect to be used on the course.
Now that being said.....I need help to make it more aligned with what people may "enjoy", and the knowledge that we have lost about 20 trees at CRUCIAL junctions out there make a change needed. So starting this fall, if you want to help with the reconfiguration of the course, I would welcome your efforts. Essentially holes 13, 14, 15 will vanish. You will walk from #12 to #16 (like that is going anywhere, I mean having the "worst hole ever", that is some great notoriety!) and 3 holes will be added in 2 different locations. I also want to extend #6.
Alas it is always a work in progress, but the fact that you play the front 9 is more than people were doing here 10 years ago, and that is progress.
