This doesn't look like a well designed hole to me...

One thought I might have on it is to put the basket further back either on top of that hill or somewhere on the slope... the idea would be that it is make-able but has a huge risk associated with it... I mean so many courses are in the woods and if everyone put a basket behind a tree like that I'd just quit the sport or make my own course

to answer to OP... I originally was thinking comin' in high and through the split in the tree but I might opt for a forehand and overstable putter gently on a hyzer so it drops in left to right hopefully...I'd also give some thought to an over-extended tomahawk with something understable...there's a good chance it will go upside down and glide in from the left to right... that's a tough shot no matter how you take it (but is it fun? No)...

don't mean to be a critic but I don't understand that pin placement really

Total design flaw. Putting a basket that close to trees makes that a horrible design.

If I played that hole regularly, I'd practice the hole till I figured out how to put my drive somewhere else. You have that nice mound behind the basket to allow you to be a little more aggressive.
