Looks like on the sign there might be 3 different tee positions but looks like its just a matter of a little longer or shorter and not really changing the layout of straight with some grass mowed and the rest, not mowed.

Im going RHBH X Pred taking advantage of the reliable hyzer over the grass on the right and fading back. If the grass is really tall, I might throw my Pink River.

*EX RHBH, or maybe even a roller with my beat Warrior.

I might turnover an ESP Surge, but I'd probably instead FH the Surge either high to spike it or low to skip it, depending on how long the hole looks like.

Now that's a par # I like!

I wonder if they'd bump it to par 5 if they planted a tree in the middle of the fairway....

You wish...That's a short par 3 on this course...there are several par 3's that are 400+. I've played this course many times...

Correct on the three pin positions, all fairly close together, some of which bring those trees into play more than others.. One position, I know, is in the trees themselves. There is also a canal behind the pins (OB), so don't over shoot it. The hole is angled left to right at the canal so RHFH and LHBH are all good strategies, in that the fade direction will parallel the canal.

I've thrown a few things on this hole, my most reliable being a newish stable speed 9 (OLF, PD) out to the right a bit and let fade back to the trees.

Not that you can tell from the pics, but for some reason near the basket there is a tendancy for the wind to go left to right in a cross/headwind direction. I wouldn't recommend a hyzer flip...you'll flip, that's for sure. One of the keys to success at this course is wind management.

How much wind are we talking about?

Looking at the hole and the distance, that's almost a perfect opto striker throw for me, just slightly right of the basket. If there's much of a headwind I might step up to my GL striker or maybe even one of my new star destroyers that won't turn much, if at all, into a wind.

Star Katana followed by a couple of tosses with my Star Aviar P&A.

Looking at the pictures for this course it doesn't appear to take advantage of the beautiful hill in the background. Too bad. I bet there is some great elevation to take advantage of.
