Pinnacle Canon for the first shot. From there everything is dependent on remaining distance and wind. It could be anything from a Star Leopard to a Neutron Tangent to Champion Roc3 to Cryztal FLX Drone. This looks like a course you would have to bring the whole tournament bag with.

Nice I'll be playing this course in about an hour.

I've only ever birdied this hole from the short pad to short pin--it plays a bit longer because there's a slight elevation increase and the pin sits on a small hill.

From the shorts, I throw a Teebird if I'm feeling good or a 1.1 QOLF (the usual choice), followed by an Ion to putt.

From the longs, I throw whatever distance driver I'm using at the time (either Flow or Katana), then usually something overstable (Zone, Pig, Hornet) to spike into the very small green (probably a 15-20' circumference surrounded by sumac). A three is good here.

This is a great course that tests every shot, short game, distance, technical through the woods, playing the wind on an open bomb, etc. The one thing is that in peak summer, you do not want to go off the fairway--this picture shows relatively tame prairie grass for the rough (taken probably the spring after they burned much of the tall grass down on this hole). It is not so during the peak season--the grass is chest high and extremely easy to lose a disc in. A lot of times you have to pitch out overhand if you're really in deep. Those distance lines have to be on point.

Blizz Boss from the long, Roc/PD from the short depending on pin position. If the grass is chest high like when I played it I'm sticking to wizards down the middle of the fairway.

That's a pretty drastic difference between short and long. I'm not a fan of holes like this. "Let's put a basket in a field, poor some cement a few hundred feet away, and then mow a path between them." A course is a course though, and even these have their value. As I've stated in a review of a similar course, these holes allow you to work on shot placement without the concern of hitting a tree or being brutally penalized by an errant shot. Enough ranting.

RHBH Gazelle from any of them.

Going to avoid the rough on either side so RHBH Teebird up the center.

Bright pink P-PD off the tee, emphasis on the bright pink. If the rough looks absolutely ridiculous then Ion up the fairway like Mashnut advocated.

Lace or avenger from all tees.

River approach from the longs

Ridge to approach and putt.
