855' Disc Side of Heaven Championship Course #16. Probably the signature hole for course. Wanted to stake claim to it here, but do not have a picture of it just yet. Will try and remedy that this weekend and I will add it here. I will, however, walk you through it.

From the Gold Tee, during the winter, you can actually see the basket 855' away from you. Par 5, no worries, right? You are standing on top of a ridge, the fairway drops hard to the right, and to the left, but not so much. The 500' marker is straight in front of you, also on top of the ridge, but quickly after that the fairway disappears.

You throw a perfect drive 375-400 feet dead center. You land about 40' past the 500' marker so you are sitting just 460' away from the basket. You can see the basket, but now you can also see that the basket is just 40' or so past the waterline. So now you need a 420' shot just to clear the water, trees line the pond the entire right side so you either have to throw a HUGE hyzer, a dead straight shot, or a big flick. Do you go for the shot so you are putting for Eagle, or do you lay up. Did I mention you cannot see the near waterline due to the hill. So you are throwing a blind lay up. If you do lay up, you still have a 220' water carry to get to the basket that is still protected on the right by the trees.

So, what do you do?

I probably throw a mediocre drive of about 285' (when I was hoping for 340'), then glide down the slope with a monster 300' fairway driver shot and pray the third drive clears the water.

...can't wait to see the pics. sounds like a cool challenge!

856'

This looks like the most appealing of the 856 footers I found:

Blue Valley Park in Kansas City, MO
Hole 18, Blue tee to Pin "B" = 856 ft
I have no clue if the pictured tee is the Blue tee, or which position the basket is shown in, but the sign reads 856 from the blue... interesting tee pads





I think we might be adding 857 to the missing list.

Hole #9, Disc Side of Heaven Championship Course, Gold Tee:



Standing on the Gold Tee, there is one of Disc Side of Heaven's old growth oak trees in front of you. This tree is so big the branches closest to you are only about 280' away so it appears you can get around it easily with your tee shot. The illusion is the back side of the same tree is about 400' from the tee. The tree is over 100' in diameter.



From the 250' marker, trees protect the right side of the green forcing a left-to-right shot at the basket. The left side of the green is protected a small pond. The green is about 25' below feet from the 250' marker.

861'

18 missing: 736, 754, 758, 766, 769, 781, 791, 806, 809, 828, 829, 833, 838, 841, 845, 851, 857 and 859... if you build it, we will come.

Only thing I found for 861 was:
Bowden DGC: Macon, GA, Hole 5 Gold tee, which fits the bill, but no pix of that hole.

next?
