Open, My home course is very long and open, so I like em that way. A wide open hole has no "best" routes trees to make a good shot bad or a bad shot good. and in my opinion is the best way to test real skill. For instance on a ctp I threw a perfect shot right under the basket, another person throws a shot that would have been a 4 or 5 but hit a late tree that makes the disc fall on a log and roll a good distance to under the basket, closer than mine.

My best-rated tournament rounds have been on courses ranging for pretty much wooded to fairly open (but not completely wide open). It's at the extremes that I play poorly; I don't have the arm for wide open, which usually means long-and-wide-open, and don't care for or play well on extremely tight holes.

It's a whole different question as to the kind of courses I like most, to which the answer is, "mixed".

There's more to disc golf than throwing long and straight. Granted, two skills I'd dearly love to have, but not the only two you need to be a complete player.

I just think in the woods sometimes its the luck of what sort of kick you get, insead of the where in the open if you throw a good shot it cant go bad, or if you throw a bad shot it cant go good, unless under extreme events. I bet we have all played one crazy pinball hole where you hit a tree eventually, almost as a guarantee. I'm perfectly fine with wooded holes, just ones like I stated above are what I dislike when they are used heavily throughout a course.

I play equally crappy on both open and wooded courses.

Wooded courses I find more enjoyable. Throwing across a field seems boring.

Wide open holes are boring unfortunately and ultimately just a distance contest on those particular holes. Any skill level will appreciate getting a bird on a narrow tunnel shot where you have to s-curve your drive to get within putting range.
