Hit left trunk (I was front left of the tree about 10'), side of basket and flopped to the ground just in front of the base of the tree. If it was a 2 footer for par, I'd be surprised.

I think it was a very creative location for the basket. Instead of having a completely open hole, this could make it a lot more challening depending on where your drive landed. Plus... depending on how you putted, the tree could either help you or hurt you.

I played at La Mirada a few months back and they had something similar.

Yep, sort of the Lite version of the hole I pictured. You are right about the tree either helping or hurting. In retrospect, I might have tried to use the right hand trunk to bank in...or not.

Let someone play through on this hole last year and watched him get his first ace. It was pretty cool.

Arizona!

Got sent to the Phoenix area for work and was fortunate enough to play two courses the day I arrived. Really enjoyed both courses. Here are a couple pics.

Los Olivos actually plays through an old Olive orchard. Pretty neat little course. The basket is just to the right of the car that you can see in the dead center of the fairway. Met up with a couple locals who invited me to finish a round with them.



Paseo Vista is on the site of a re-claimed dump. I like how they re-created the look and feel of AZ on the course. Again, this was another fun course, 18 holes this time. Love the views!

We found a fire extinguisher a few months back while constructing our course at my friends land. Just had to put it into a tree....


We also got out and added 150 feet to our latest hole, making it a dogleg right after 200 feet and then going another 200-250 feet with the last 30 feet up on a hill. This was what I did on Monday in the rain.

The current plan is to get out for a round at Mont du Lac on Sunday morning. I will definitely have my camera with. I have only played White Cedar once, but I was blown away with the photo opportunities of several of the middle holes.
