Two HOD's...it's bonus day!

Placement of the first drive looks important here. Not too steep early on, but a mountain climb finish.

Either way, try to get across the road in two...

Plan A: if it's reachable, place a drive (PD or Destroyer) near the gap in the evergreens above the park sign, then go through the gap and over the small trees on the other side (PD). That should leave a shorter, but steep uphill approach with an Axis.

Plan B: if the road and trees are that far out (or the hill is really steep) place a drive near the gap on the left (PD) and throw an Axis or beat X Buzz through the gap to the next hill, and approach.

^ I was also thinking of trying to shot the gap, if reachable. Katana then roc in. If Not reachable, TL to the road then play in from there.

Pro Leopard going toward the gap on the right with what looks to be a sign. Looks like I don't want to fall left here going after that left gap. From there, I might thumber a Flick to go up the hill or may just pick away at it with a Leo.

Knowing my luck, the road is reachable; and during that slow Leopard flight, a truck comes out of nowhere, the Leopard lands in the back of it which in total distance would be a personal best depending on where the truck stopped and I would be out my favorite Leopard.

I'll try to hit the gap by turning over a beat Pred, and see where I am after that.

That hole can make you feel really small and is every bit of a par 5.....It's 2 full drives from the base of the hill to the basket and the drive to the base is every bit the placement drive. Add in the steepness of the slope and thus the fast green and infamous mountain winds.....tough hole.
If I was to try it again I'd go TL to hill and then sidewinder 2x and then approach with someone not too glidey....Cro..and putt out with the JK Aviar and hope the grass isnt mowed too tight if I miss

Ironically, I just played this course recently (two Saturday's ago). That's certainly a tough hill there and I wasn't too thrilled about playing over a parking lot either. The wind was whipping making the discs dance erratically.

If I remember correctly, I teed off with a Star Destroyer (175g) and then threw it again for that big uphill shot. I believe I threw a Z Buzz (173g) failing on my eagle hope/prayer and with the wind swirling as I looked down on that steep hillside and fast green, nervously putted my Bangor GT in for a birdie four.
