This is tough.

If I'm playing anything more than a casual round, my throw is going to depend on just how low those branches are. If they're fairly low on the tree I'd probably RHBH a Z Buzzz on sky hyzer line around the tree. If the branches are trimmed up high, then I might launch a Z Buzzz right at it (or maybe a Star Aviar if I can learn to keep it down)

If it's just a casual round, I think I'll keep experimenting with my forehand and rip a Star Firebird out to the left and let the disc do the work to come back.

Big 'ol hyzer with a FLX Drone. Or a nice little tomahawk over the top. Either one would work nicely.

Hyzer flip around it with the roadrunner. Obviously more experienced players may use something else, but it's the only really understable disc that I use often.

Options, we got 'em. Do I throw out over the tree with an Eagle on a big hyzer, or do I anny a Buzzz under the tree to the left? What a terrifically interesting hole.

BikinJack, I like the way you think.

Put me down for Anny with a Buzzz to the left of the tree.

I'm liking the left route for some reason....Voodoo, anny.

The hyzer route looks like it needs to be a much bigger curve, though a Roc could probably do it, too, maybe a Firebird or powered down Eagle.

Wind and conditions may influence me....

I think I would throw my Meteor RHBH and hope it doesn't go right until past the tree.

It's not as interesting a course/hole as it looks. Wizard for me, just like every other hole on the course.
