Even BRP has about 4-5 feet before the ob you an throw a nice forehand or anhyzer if you make it through the trees and park it next to the basket... Options are always good vs feeling like you are being raped by the hole.

you lost me here. How will the provisional help you get a decent score?

400ft and 6-7 feet wide is not a fairway. Make the hole 250 and it is much more fair for everyone.

Read the OP, the 7 foot wide tunnel off the drive is 120 ft. The rest of the 400ft hole opens up alot.
That is why my question is -"can a gold level player negotiate a 7 ft wide 120 ft long tunnel?"

The tunnel looks a lot like that second pic posted, just a little narrower and longer,
so you can "putt" off the tee box into the wide lane next to the tunnel and still have a chance for par,
but the clearing the tunnel is the only hope for birdie.
There is also 3 other tees to choose from, so I'm not trying to be fair to everyone, just to gold players.

I think gold level players could navigate that tunnel, although I think pictures would help.

I'm imagining most players would throw a control shot out of the tunnel, approach and putt for a routine three. I'm sure there would be a few drives that make it out of the tunnel unscathed and produce birdies, and a few that careen into the schule and require pitch out bogies, but I don't envision a lot of score separation.

If it is truly a 6' gap (you measured it?), then only 12% of Gold players will be able to drive out of the tunnel. 14% for a 7' gap.

I don't think that is tempting enough.

Here is a 400 foot long, slightly downhill tunnel. That diagonal branch is almost halfway down this un-fairway:
