Here is a pic of the basket.



This is one of the easiest holes on the course. That being said this hole can be big trouble as well. The whole right side is OB swamp. Half way down the fairway on the left is a big gourge that wraps around to the back of the basket. Kaposia is arguably the hardest course in the metro and it will be the site of the MN State Amateur Championship this year.

I throw a FH Comet on this hole because of the low celling. I have been playing here a lot this spring and this is usually a birdy for me.

You don't want to fade right or left at all and going long is big trouble too.

erock nailed it. this is from the course walkthrough on playdg.com:

"The fairway is lined with hazards. On the right we have a swamp. On the left we have your basic canyon. And past the basket is a small creek. So, keep it straight and you'll be set up nicely for an unobstructed putt."

roc hyzer flip, maybe a buzz

The hole is at 6 min in the video. There is a winter and summer layout for this course and during tounement play there are three temp holes making it 27 holes.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

On this hole I had a Star Ontario Roc in the chains during the Minnesota Majestic last year but I could not get it to stick. That would have been the sweetest ace ever.

However, that was a very hot shot and if I would have missed I would have greatly blown by the basket. There is a swamp on the right side and a deep gulch on the left. The backside is not as deep but basically this hole is a pennisula.

Depending on your power, you are best going after it with a neutral mid or putter. It is better to come up a little short than to go long.

If it is a nice, calm day I would likely use an Anode. If there is a little wind I would go back with a mid, likely an Axis or a Roc. Now that I have hit chains, however, I feel like I should hit it everytime.

I love how many members on here represent Minnesota. I have yet to check out Kaposia but have been meaning to. I am going to take advantage of having the holiday off tomorrow and buy my first bag and then check out CP Adams in Hastings and the course in Cottage Grove.

285 feet? Buzzz or maybe my DX Cheetah....depending on the hazards might even play it safe with my Yeti Pro Aviar.
