That is why my question is -"can a gold level player negotiate a 7 ft wide 120 ft long tunnel?"

Its actually 8 ft wide and I'm shortening the end of the tunnel so you are out after 100 ft.
Steve, can you run that thru your disc golf super computer and give me the odds?

Yes, it is fair. They all have to play from the same tee.

I am a REC player and I could throw a forehand roller through that. It adds a different challenge. If you had 9 of these holes, then you may have a problem with the masses. That hole, people will like it or hate it, not a lot of inbetweens. Then they will move on to the next hole.

Sounds similar to Codorus CC hole #3, the vid below is shot from the short tee and it narrows it down to about 4ft wide before opening up some and then narrows back down to maybe 6ft wide rows toward the basket. From the long tee its 6-7ft wide fairway most the way to the 4ft gap which is probably 140' or so.

I am not very good but I think 8 ft and just 100 feet is quite fair.....100 feet is just 33 meters....The challenge is in the decision-making to max out the drive or to play it safe and get 250-300 ft of controlled D and then upshot-putt and get a 3 versus risking the 375 drive and putt birdie that could easily end up being a disaster.....Don't dare punk out the design....players will bitch and bitch and bitch until they hit the line or figure out how to play the hole...then they will say "Oh man what a great risk/reward hole it's awesome"

I've designed far tougher holes.....my mantra is always to design holes that demand some type of execution to birdie and a safe way to get par. Bogeys are for mistakes and Birdies should be rewards. Pooching out of a 100 foot tunnel is easy and allows for a par.....driving out full throttle gives a chance at birdie...I say you are on the right track

This hole sounds completley fair, and yes I could probably even make it out of a 8 feet wide by 100 long tunnel ( and If I had a rating it would only probbaly be in the low 900's)

This hole came to mind when I read the OP as well. I took a drop in 3 from the pro tee at the Autumn Open throwing a Comet off the tee.

I've heard lots of bitching about the hole, but the consensus seems to be that it's only one hole on the course, throw a controlled shot and move on. And I think the fairway is fair, it's just tight. A standstill putter is easy enough to throw straight down the gut, you just have to commit to it.

One out of five can drive out. Maybe one out of four can pitch out.
