^if you have a good thumber or tomahawk, a 3 is pretty do-able on 14 Lakeside. Just get down to the middle and go up-and-over for the 3. Worked for me both rounds I played it.

Pwingles,
Bring backups. You will lose discs in the water. Don't worry about distance on these courses, shot placement is key for the par 4's and 5's. I HIGHLY advise you get there with enough time on Friday to play or at least walk through both courses so you can get an idea of where the key landing zones are for your game. Bring a camera, this place is EPIC.

I'd like to take a minute on how awesome Lakeside #4 is. Listed at 837 from the long tee and 638 from the short tee, I'm guessing those are on a generous curved flight path (i.e. a little longer than the actual distance).

As you look at the fairway, for your first and second shots you have 50-70 feet of fairway width next to the lake that is completely clear of trees. However, if the wind and/or your nerves push the disc left, you aren't dead. As you can see in the aerial, the trees are fairly sparse for the next 100 feet of width. So that's the beauty: Choose to stay near the lake and you have open shots; chicken out or get forced left and you still have very manageable gaps through trunked trees and a little shorter distance. Also, if you end up (or choose) left, the water on your 3rd shot is far less imposing. Classic choices to be made.

(Of course if you are a pretty long arm and/or the wind is right, you can bomb your drive along the lake and try to get home in 2 for the well-deserved eagle putt.)

The short tee is listed as a par 5, presumably for the target audience, but it plays as a great par 4 for experienced players. A nice 330-350 gentle hyzer leaves you with a very do-able <300 shot to the pin, or about 220 to carry, with big enough gaps in the guarding trees to make it fun. And again, if you get left off the tee, you have big trunked trees, shorter distance, and less water. Awesome.

Nice work John.

^ yes indeed. One of many great holes on site and maybe the second best on Lakeside.

Awesome, thanks guys. Ill bring plenty of back ups for sure.

How far is this overhand shot that I would have to throw on #14 do you think? Any uphill or downhill to the LZ? Water? Guess i could just go look at it on the course finder lol

Yikes lol. I cant really guage which line is the way to go from the 2 pics they have of it. The pic of the pin almost looks like they took it at the wrong angle. I mean not back toward the tee, is that right?

Those tee pics are from the short tee. The long is another 50 feet back. And you're right about the pin -- the pic doesn't look back to the tee.

It seems like one of the bigger gaps is the one to get to the bailout ravine on the right, although you can't see any in the pics.

We all looked at overhands and stuff like that, but none of us have that shot so we didn't try it.

Ahh ok, that 50' makes a difference. I was sorta thinking thumber, thumber from that pic lol. Dunno about adding 50' to that first one though.

Looks like a blast either way. Gonna be a great time I hope and fingers crossed, rain free.

From the ravine on 14 I'd say it's no more than 200 uphill to the pin. Both rounds I threw a tomahawk with a firebird from the right side of the ravine. That's the best place to be to go up and over.

I don't believe there's a thumber line from the long box on 14. You have 3 10-15ft gaps to choose from. Left, middle, and right.
