Buzzz SS for the Quartz layout
Maybe run the Buzzz SS again to the Diamond layout

I really want to play this course.

I suppose a 130's blizzard wraith at both, because throwing my Warship, Or Cyclone into the pond would seriously make me think about burning the place down.

I don't really get water holes, these aren't $0.50 golf balls we're risking.

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.

I do believe I threw a Wraith at it in the 1st shot of this video.

Awesome looking place. very picturesque. I'd FH something I'd know would go past the lake and near the horses, mainly because of my unpredictable BH and then putt back. When in doubt and over water I tend to "club up" just to be on the safe side. I hate getting discs out of water even if it's not much, this looks like a good fishing hole.
After seeing the video it doesn't look as daunting as it does from the pictures.

I'm sure the people with the horses love all the discs that come over their fence

That road is ob as well, so the quartz basket acts like an island green. I threw a roc, I probably would for either layout.

It's 295' to the basket, 250' to clear water on the line of play, a little less if you pull it right. There's also an Intermediate Tee (and drop zone) that's about 50' shorter.

The horses are on family property. Retrieval is only an issue if you're not sure whether the electric fence is on.

Thanks for the video, dscjnky. I'd only seen 1 or 2 short clips before, including my skip-off-the-ice. (1 of the holes shown is extinct, by the way).

Water holes are a matter of taste. They ramp up the excitement. Ever heard of anyone betting money on a round?

They play like any other O.B. except---you stand on the tee and ponder whether to throw your best discs. Your best discs give you the best chance of landing safe, but you know if you lose them it will hurt your game. So you dial back to an expendable disc, which is even more likely to end up in the water and hurt your game. Decisions, decisions.

This hole has a dramatic feel because you're over water for 80% of the throw. Sometimes 100%.
