225 ft. Looks to be straight through the trees.

I'm throwing an ESP Buzz down the right route RHBH hoping it fades around the trees right under the basket.
Ha! This is an easy one! I play this course all the time--it's a forehand or turnover high to the left of the tree bank. I aced it this way several years ago with an aviar. The straight shot is very tight, tighter than it seems. It's doable, but a fairly low percentage shot compared with the TO or FH.

Also, you can't see it well, but there is a large creek (that's pretty deep) just off to the left. If you turn it over and it doesn't hold...you're in trouble. Also if your straight shot skips, you could be in trouble...

I would toss my SS Wizard putter overhead, tommahawk style through the left tree gap. It would do a slow turn & land upside down on it's top next to the pin (or in for the Ace).

is that wizard going through the gap, or did it just get knocked down off of the tree? tough to tell from that angle

Right now...my wife would pull out her gremlin and hit 2-3 trees while I walk along the winding path with her bag laughing at her.

I'd probably RHFH and take that left path with either a Reaper or a low Viper...although I'd hate to see the Viper start rolling and jumping through the woods....
If I could play this course regularly, I'd have to try the straight shot with either a Buzzz or, more likely, a 150 star Roc....nice, easy, and low....
