Do you play better in heavily/moderately wooded courses or fairly open courses?

Disregard this poll if it has already been done (searched but found nothing). I don't get a chance to play many wooded courses but it seems like every time I do, I shoot considerably better than I do on open courses (5 stroke ratings better on average). So do you shoot better on wooded or open courses?

I usually do better in wooded courses because I don't usually have the distance, but I have tweaked my technique and am getting some more distance so it is probably about the same now. I am playing a tournament in September in a wooded course so we will see

For me, I need a tree or two as a reference point. Wind also plays a factor on wide open holes.

I play better than others in the woods. Others play better than I do in the open. My ratings are usually the same

My putting turns long open holes into 3's instead of 2's. On wooded courses I focus more on hitting my lines and getting short putts and park jobs so I fare better.

"Yes" and "No" are probably not the best options for the poll in the context of the question. Yes, I play better in heavily wooded courses. No, I do not play better in open courses.

I use trees as reference. Typically I prefer moderately wooded.

Good catch. Is there any way to change the options still?

I prefer woods as it usually frames the shot.

Well, in my disc golf group, I do better if it's a new course, no matter the terrain. If we frequent the course, the victories between us are inconsistent. When we play a new course, I usually win.

With that being said, I prefer open courses because I like to watch my disc fly and the worst feeling is knowing you just released a great shot and it hits a low branch or something.
