View Full Version : Hole of the day 5/17/2010
05-17-2010, 12:22 AM
Denison Park in Corning, NY
Hole 8, Par 3. Short: 278 ft, Long: 324 ft
Map shows a slight turn to the left at the end. I can't tell where the basket is in the pic though. Hopefully someone with experience will point it out. Maybe nestled in the dark green trees just over the rise?
Tee (unknown which):
For now I think I'm RHBH'ing an ESP Buzzz.

what a disgusting hole... crossing fairways with 7... paved lot (skate park?) to chew up errant drives.... that cable strung in front of the teepad.... Eckerds don't even exist anymore! lol. (they were purchased by and converted to RiteAids).
I'm gonna toss a DX teebird LHBH on an anny line. If i hit the parking lot, at least my DX teebird will be a bit more broken in for next time. *shrugs*

I don't want the disc to turn over into the concrete skate park looking area, and I don't want to destroy my disc on that steel cable. Hmmm. Something very straight that goes 280-320'. I know people who would throw a Roc at this all day. I'm thinking maybe a Roc from the short tee, maybe a Teebird or a nice, smooth Valkyrie from the long? From the long, this could be a good hole for the Orc lovers.

RHBH DX Eagle with some hyzer on it. Either tee.
05-17-2010, 07:43 AM
Short: Roc, hyzer
Long: Eagle, hyzer

Gummy Champ Eagle or Wasp on a big line...or a super big hyzer with a FLX predator.

Check this out, zoomed in...looks like the basket is past the paved area, meaning you have to carry it.
So the question becomes if anything down there is OB...I'd stick with my earlier shots, but may try to come up on the short side of the basket, where the landing area is a bit bigger.

It's hard to call without actually seeing the basket...but I'll say:
Short - FLX or Z Buzzz
Long - Wraith if it's straight or slight hyzer to basket, Stalker or XL if basket's off to right behind skate park

Star Roc for the short hole, Champ teebird for the long. I would put a little bit of hyzer on both hoping to just float it in.

finally one I have played!
Hole 8 is one of the better holes (both tees)
13-15 were garbage.

Comet from both tees, try to land on the short side and have a 20-30' putt.

Assassin from both tees.

That hole is kind of messed up. With that skate area so close to the basket. I think I would throw my Voodoo to about 260 to play it safe then try to sink a long putt.

Man that little hill on the left would totally screw with my forehand drive...I'd try to run a surge ss straight in there but have a feeling I'd catch that hill once or twice.
If I'm throwing RHBH, I'd have to throw the Monarch or the Valk....but if all that crap on the right is OB, I might just lay up with a buzzz and take an easy 3...
05-17-2010, 11:14 AM
Long or short: RHBH Teebird low & flat straight at the big grafitti. Gentle fade to parkage.
05-17-2010, 11:20 AM
Probably throw a nice low straight star orc LHBH to the left of the big tree and let i fade back around the bacl side of it.
05-17-2010, 11:38 AM
On my first throw I'd bomb it with a nuke nose up and a little too high so it would stall and fade over the little hill on the left leaving me about a 160' upshot. On my second shot I'd take my Surge SS and run right at the chains but it would turn over and slide under than big ramp on the right. Then I'd take my Z Buzz and put it right over the top of the basket and about 25' into the neck high weeds which would force me to turbo putt. My turbo putt would hit that tree in the middle leaving me with a 17' high pressure putt which I would come up just short.

I'd probably go with a Roc on both, and play the safe shot on the near side of the concrete - assuming it's O.B.

Core from the Short and a QJ from the Long.
rhfh a champ max for the ace run
05-18-2010, 12:03 AM
That seems like the best way to go OB cjc.

Short: Z Buzz flat. Aim about 15' to the R of the hole and let it turn as it approaches.
Long: ESP Tracker--same line as Buzz
