bad hole? really?
« on: November 01, 2012, 09:15:58 AM »
If this isn't your cup of tea, there is always darts, or billiards, or horsehoes....  ;D










....or there is the short tee, and a landing zone on the East bank.

If you have to ask, then you should just lay up on the East bank.  ;D

Currently, in the drought low water condition, it's approximately 270' on a direct line from tee to target to clear the H2O.

About this far... ___________________ which is too far for most. But with a fair shot to the right, it would make this hole great. But imho it isn't there yet. I know tom and company is trying to clear it more tho so hopefully it will be there one day.

Tom -

I played this hole with its new tee pad for the first time at the Club Championship...and I loved it.  I have a weenie arm, and with a slight anny with an understable disc, I made it over and had lots of room to spare and landed 75(?) feet past the drop zone.  Of course, I had to par it, but I thought it was a great hole.

it's not a bad hole, but not a good hole. throw 300 and you're there. with all those baseball foul poles on site, i'd love to see a legitimate mando somewhere< prob on the right> to really make you plan both your first and second shot. i do love that green.

And 2 others threw into the water on his card......I received my disc back though, thank you very much!

Yeah, there is ample bail out room to the right.

And if you throw it too far into the wooded stuff up there: 1. you deserve it and 2. you can throw far enough to clear the water towards the pin.

I think that hole is really bad by comparison. The middle and long on that hole are really interesting and, depending on wind conditions, decently challenging holes. It is just a shame to not play either of them.

It looks sooooo much better now that the right side has been cleaned out! Looks like a calendar hole  ;D
Throw farther, not harder...

And when the pond freezes this winter maybe  put a ramp on the north side of the pond so you could slide one across  and jump it into the basket
