Since its not the intended basket, but still the same hole, should it be a "grey ace"?

Wait, I thought the definition of a "Black Ace" was an ace into any basket other than the intended one? Am I wrong?

It's a brown ace. Right hole, wrong basket.

Or a grey ace. On a different thread, the consensus was that a brown/grey ace is a type of black ace even though I don't think its a true black ace.

I don't care what color it is that **** was awesome. Maybe they were playing long to short on purpose.

Grey Ace? When did that become a thing? 17 @ Valley Springs is a big hyzer to the short and the long plays as a par 4 about 200' past the short basket. There's not really any real line from the tee to the long. Well we were playing singles with a guy who had never played the course so I explained the hole as "The only way I know to play this hole is to throw right to the short basket then approach"

Well then I threw and aced the short basket. What color is it when you call yourself black acing?

This black/brown ace debate came up somewhere before.

My buddy calls it a brown ace when you "ace" into a trash can.

Grey Ace with style points?!

From the Brown Ace thread, Cgkdisc correctly pointed out " 'Grey ace' was coined back when the Warwick (NY) course was installed to reference an "ace" on the Silver basket when teeing to the longer Blue basket on the same hole."

At Hyland Orchard & Brewery DGC, they have "grey" short pins and "blue" long pins. Hence an ace on a "grey" pin while playing for the "blue" baskets is called a "grey ace". Same tee pads, same fairways, different basket/lenghts.
http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=4251

So is "grey ace" acceptable for any shorter alternate basket on the hole in play? Or since the ace video that started this thread was on the white basket, should it be a "white ace"?
