Sweet! My home course. Pic "from the blue tee" looks to be almost halfway up the fairway. As tunnel-like as that picture is, it's even more so from the actual tee. Tight alley if you want to go 350' on a frozen rope, otherwise the birdie shot is a forehand (RHFH) that flexes through a gap right to left (could be the gap between the big tree in the foreground left and the next one up and right of it - tough to tell without knowing exactly where the picture is taken from) and then floats back to the right through the relatively more open left side. I don't have a 350' forehand, so I throw a Teebird up the gut and let it fade into the open area for a LONG putt or easy layup for par. This is a real tough birdie - 4's are much more common than 2's - a 3 and you walk away feeling good.

White tee is a completely different look - 200 feet and somewhat open - there is a row of maybe 2-3 big trees in a right-left row about 120-140 feet out there, but spaced enough to hit a variety of gaps. I usually throw a Stingray for a deuce.
