My first HOD post
... love this course!
WR Jackson Memorial DGC (IDGC) in Appling, GA
Rating 4.37 from 26 reviews
: plays slightly downhill and then way back uphill, with a dogleg right at the top of the hill
par 5 - 716'
(it's huge so no pasting in the thread, 18 = top center)
18: tee looking down fairway (at top of hill, fairway doglegs to the right)
18: basket looking down fairway (from the corner, tee is down hill to the left)
Great finishing hole to a great course! I'd say it's a generous par 5 as a 4 is quite possible for 930+ rated players IMO.
1) I play the relatively safe hyzer shot off the tee to the right (most recently with a hyzerflip seasoned Pro Destroyer
2) All but the very top pros will be short of the corner and need to play some sort of right finishing shot to hopefully land in the center of the rather large landing zone. Last Saturday I threw a Firebird thumber
on a 45angle.
3) If your 2nd shot is in the middle of the fairway, then a good 3rd shot will leave you posted up for a birdie 4. The alley you're shooting down is relatively tight compared to the first part of the hole, but nothing too hard. There is jail on the right and also a slight gap on the left that can be hit as well. I'd say this 3rd shot can be anywhere from 200'-250' depending on how far up the fairway your 2nd shot landed. I'd either backhand an Omega AP or seasoned flat-top KC Pro Roc depending on the distance.
4) Hopefully your 3rd shot leaves you inside the circle for a decent shot at 4. Not too terribly "hard" of a hole, but the shots must be well executed for sure. Putting with a McPro Aviar
for my bird.
... anybody think they can eagle?
