This is the one he's talking about.


The water is low in this picture, the basket is typically only 12ft from the edge of the lake. It's not a long hole, about 230ft carry or so over the lake, but anything short and left is gone. You can bail to the right, and even if you don't make it across the water, it is shallow enough to retrieve (within 15ft of the bank or so), but over where the basket is gets a little deeper. I've probably dumped 5or6 in there in the last couple of years. When the wind is blowing off of the lake, this is a trickly little tee shot.

Bryan Park Hole #14. Has a fairway with a group of trees/rough to the left. In the summer many homeless or just "regulars" sit inside there to drink and smoke. We have affectionatley called this hole "Hobo Alley" for a long time.

Hole #4 at East Roswell Park in Roswell, GA (Atlanta metro) has four old truck trailers permanently parked along the left side of the fairway.

You can just see the tops peeking over the top of the ridge in this shot from the blue tees:



Here's a shot from the fairway with the last three trailers in view:



The basket is another 90-100 ft past the last trailer, way over to the left, on a slope that drops at least 15 ft or so down behind the basket, with shule all around.

And for fun, here's a shot of Ken Climo trying to extricate himself from between the last two trailers during the 2008 Atlanta Open (sorry for the quality -- it rained all day, and this was the last shot I got before the moisture that got into my camera fogged it up completely).



Naturally, the hole is known far and wide (especially after hosting a National Tour event this year) as "the trailer hole".

It's part of a group of holes (3 through 5) that are among the most open on an otherwise extremely wooded course, but which as a result are completely surrounded by nearly impenetrable kudzu during the warmer months of the year. Shank a drive off the fairway, and you could be looking all day for a disc in there. Collectively, those holes have been nicknamed "Kudzu Corner".

Evil. Kudzu is totally evil. Think of it as rabid ivy on steroids. It's a prime example of a destructive invasive species, introduced from Japan to the South at some World's fair or something many many decades ago. James Dickey wrote a poem about it. You could probably look it up on wikipedia.
