Hole 1: AMs- Left to right turning downhill. Right side plays as a bunker in the blue spruce. There is a keyhole shot if you dear.
Pros- Plays the same shot shape with the vertical line tightened and the gap narrowed.
Hole 2: AMs- Long straight slightly uphill for the first 400 feet, make the road for better footing, play the open pipeline for an open up, or bail out left and play the long straight tunnel to the basket that is placed on a 30' diameter grass pad scratched out of the hill side.
Pros- Stretches the hole out and makes the first shot play more uphill with a demanding nose angle to maintain center cut and not end in the rough. Avoid rough if you don't like starting a round with a bogey.
Hole 3: AMs- Straight with a some distance/height control as the green slopes left to right punishing a high fading RHBH.
Pros- Stretches the hole a touch and removes the error term on the distance/height control.
Hole 4: AMs- Pick left side or right side fairway for a your placement shot, look at the ski hill and enjoy the beautiful forest. From there, downhill tunnel shots abound, play what feels comfortable, all feed towards a sloping green with a catch at circle 2 (Thanks Paul, so tired of three putting from roll aways)
Pros-Stretches the hole and requires serious height management of the tee if you don't want to worm burn the AM pad and advance a total of 60 feet.
Hole 5: AMs- Uphill with a few fair gaps to pick from guarding the basket on a nice grassy green. If you hit the rough you missed your line. Neighbors along right side, please be respectful. (silver bar, thanks Paul)
Pros- Same shot, 10% more power required.
Hole 6: AMs- Long straight semi-tunneled placement shot. Setting up for another placement the plays left to right downhill to a flat clover terrace with a good attack angle to the basket from there. The green slopes fast and quick past the basket so be confident or layup. Neighbors along right side, please be respectful.
Pros-Stretches the line out by a good factor and makes missing the line to find yourself playing scramble golf only after shot one of a par five a very possible occurrence. Play smart from the start and get rewarded, play aggressive and there are thousands of ways this hole could go wrong. (my favorite hole here)
Hole 7: AMs- Lots of downhill here, shot tricks you into thinking you need to play a hyzer, but easy to catch early and be in the rough. Play the shot to straight and smack the middle cluster of trees, turn it over too much and be pushing OB rough, to be honest I have not figured out this hole yet. Sliding hyzer with a mid has been my best result.
Pros- Same shot, 25% more touch required to execute.
Hole 8: AMs-Sorry, Paul, this is a filler hole. Tight out the gate with a left to right inverse j-hook, miss the gap and chip up to an elevated pin for a tap out par and move on.
Pros- No pro line, or Uline, RIP.
Hole 9: AMs-Shot plays up hill, with good nose control you should make your placement shot, shot 2 is then making a play for the bottom of the hill/green to avoid a death putt for birdie on the sloping downhill green. Play long and putt uphill, or play short and layup.
Pros- No pro pad, par is good here.
Hole 10: AMs- Uphill mid pump, or fairway 60%, over a granite boulder that takes away the easy release angle, if you beat the first gap and don't glance off the last set of blockers, you will be in easy birdie land on a nice flat terraced and chipped green.
Pros- No pro line, don't miss this birdie or you will be missing out.
Hole 11: AMs- Paul's signature hole. This is a double-double option. It's a double figure eight that plays left or right sloping down hill to your choice of landing zones, then chose left or right secondary fairway to a 180 foot ridge line straight shot to a sloping away green with an elevated basket. Par 5, birdies feel great, eagles are special.
Pros- This is still in the works, but will challenge the best of throwers to make the demanding landing zones when it is completed (Thanks Jill for this pad placement)
Hole 12: AMs- This is a great downhill tunnel with a ceiling. Requires touch to not blow past the elevated basket, don't lose control and miss the line here, because your card mates will be getting birdies and you just missed out.
Pros- Increased downhill nose angle and reduced ceiling. Hit the green and the clover will catch it, you want to get this hole, but a par is still a par.
Hole 13: AMs- Tight downhill straight gap through the cedar tress with a pond carry onto an OB style island green.
Pros- Typical Paul pro pad that takes away all the error term the line provides. Get a birdie here and score.
Hole 14: AMs- Challenging long straight carry over the corner of a pond to a landing zone that then plays a straight bob and weave style fairway slight uphill to a tucked away green, playing right to left towards the end. Par five feels great here.
Pros- Stretches out the shot and adds just enough elevation that any error in the nose angle will be punished. New mando will keep people from cheating the hole up and over to moose meadows for a sky roller over the 25foot pine bank for a creamy eagle. (sorry Paul, but that's what mandos are for, you figured it out bud)
Hole 15: AMs- Tight gap vertical and horizontal with the basket attackable, but watch out for a bad tree kick into the rough. You want to get this hole, but rarely feel like you do..
Pros- No pro pad, stop and hit the cooler as this is the closest you will be to the parking lot until 18.
Hole 16: AMs- Downhill touch, basket is straight, but you will need some sort of flexing shape to be able to attack the basket without ending up downhill and chilling in the ice house.
Pros- Makes the nose angle the key factor for continued progress down the fairway. Miss the angle and end up in the rough, there was a great thimbleberry patch to help fight hunger while you looked endlessly for your disc, but an angry string trimmer went bonkers. Give and take I presume.
Hole 17: AMs- Plays a lot like hole 9 without the punishing downhill at the end. Control your nose and wing angle and you will be in the landing zone looking at an easy approach to a rocky green. Save your soft plastics for the grass and clover.
Pros-Pulls the line back and tightens up the height control needed to get to the landing zone.
Hole 18: AMs- Last chance to play aggressive and take the win. Long straight tunnel gap the plays to a sloping green. Shot one is a placement and shot two is all about speed control as the hole continues to play downhill for the entirety.
Pros-Stretches the hole out and makes any nose up hyzer stall out into the rough, get a birdie from here and you took the lead by one.
