I am guessing at least that much uphill.

All the same...LHBH RW Roc.

I do much better throwing uphill RHFH rather than RHBH. So I'll go forehand with a Zone for both.

YES, another course I know really well. The basket is uphill and cannot be seen from the tee box. The whole park is nothing but mature trees, so if you can keep it low, you are in business. That is the trick here because not only are you shooting up hill, but you are shooting into the densest part of the mature trees on the course.

You need something that can get uphill, stay low, but also dies at the end of the flight because once up the hill it is flat. Stable mids are preferred, but a fairway driver thrown at less than full power could do the trick too.

The problem of this particular hole is that there are numerous park goers who have no idea that this is a course despite it always being packed with players. Sometimes people pick the green to be their picnic area. We once had a couple intertwined with each other taking a nap 20 feet from the basket on the busiest non-tournament days of the year. My friend landed on their blanket and had to putt over them. Naturally we took pictures.

This hole is the site of perhaps the most negative distance shot in history that didn't have to be used. I threw a backhand roller (Valk) that almost got to the top of the hill, turned around and rolled back down past the tee, across the trail and down the embankment stopping 5' short of the Mississippi River. Landed about 165 feet behind me. Fortunately, I was playing doubles and my partner had a better throw.
