I would go with a Mako here, and aim a little to the right. I wouldn't put much on it. I love holes like this! I really want to play here now!

I'd throw I Roc or DX Teebird if it was a long downhill tunnel all the way to the basket, but if it opens up, like the pics show, I'd rip the crap out of something fast for a chance to get close.

It really can depend on the wind...the throw will be well away from mother earth and alot can happen.
If I remember correctly, it's more like 300 feet to the tree line. I think we played from the long tee, and this pic is the short, so it's still ~200 feet out from there. It seems like I threw my beat to snot Inferno, and hit a tree on the right, and then faded into the trees on the left. I think when I play it again, I'll definitely throw a Comet.

This would probably work well, especially if thrown with enough snap/spin.

I don't care how well it works out, as long as it goes farther than my brother's driver.

RHBH with a Champ Beast. Wouldn't even try to think about that gap which is probably pretty easy for me, but man I would hate to hit those trees, then I would pray for a bogey at that point.

Ah Hell... For what it's worth, I would probably empty my bag on this hole. Just to watch them all fly!

Play a hole similar to this and it gets tempting to throw a driver for the distance but its up on a hill so you can get a lot of distance out of a mid and a straighter shot to get through the tunnel.

Im going Core RHBH

Good info, thanks. If the tunnel is really that long, it does change things. The pic doesn't look that tight. I just remember the last time I threw on a big open downhill. The wind got under it, turned it over, and it went about 200ft right, about 200ft short. Two others on my card threw Wraiths, about 600ft.

I'd still be tempted to throw a DX Teebird, though. Of course, that's the disc I threw last time...
