This hole is a pure gem.

I like that there are options on this hole.

Options?

Option 1) Throw down the hill and get out of the trees into the open.
Option 2) Throw down the hill and get stuck in the trees.
Option 3) Throw down the hill and hit a tree and shoot back into the trees on the right.
Option 4) Throw down the hill and hit a tree and shoot back into the trees on the left.
Option 5) Hit the first tree off the pad and get really mad.

I guess you are right. :)

options : driver, putter, midrange ; stand-still, one step, or run up. you  can try to be cute by either throwing the line or wearing capri pants. personally only played the hole 3 times. my options at those moments was to pray and throw with either eye open.

I don't think the hole necessarily needs to be wider, it just needs to be trimmed.  The overhanging limbs are what make it so tough.  Poke and hope ladies and gentlemen, poke and hope.

I would love to see it opened up so you can crush drives off the hill and watch the disc finish. But I'm old skewl I guess.

Tom was in the back of my truck standing on the rail with a 15' pole saw and the opening is as tall as we could reach.   Any more clearing would require a bucket truck or a couple large diameter trees being removed which is a no-no with City of Olathe.

FYI - the above photo is over a month old...much better now.

Not complaining just joking.  A hard flick will carry past the junk and land in front or to the side of the next box.  IMO...that's the ONLY option.

Let's also remember that these holes will someday have multiple placements. I've 3d this hole more times than I've hit trees and yall know how wild my throws get. And if this hole gets in your tits then good luck on the back side. God bless

I'm 50/50 getting through as a beginner and when I get through I get an "easy" three. Half of the times I didn't get through clean, I still had and up and down for a potential three.

It's all about hitting the hole . . . this is easier than several holes down under.
