Either a putter on a sidearm roller for fun or

Aviar straight trough the gap ( assuming that the tee is exactly where the picture was taken and you can actualy go trough that gap on the left... )

That second picture is useless for this thread. Someone was just trying to be creative by showing the "howling coyote" with a basket in the background. Just focus on the first picture.

This hole is a pain in the butt. That window is pretty tight and there's a low ceiling. What they don't tell you on here is that the gravel road running to the right of the basket and just about 5' behind it is OB, so those of you thinking "roller" might want to rethink your strategy for such a short hole. You also have to take the window that the picture shows with the basket behind it. What looks like a window on the right that would be perfect for a RHBH hyzer is blocked by a pretty large tree. So this photo isn't doing the hole justice at all.

I learned my game mostly on this course, so I've mostly thrown drivers and fairways straight up the gut on this hole, but I'm going to be downgrading to a Buzzz here pretty soon... Like tomorrow. Those of you with more distance will probably want to throw putters on a slight RHBH anny line so it curves in just short of the basket.

I've played this hole many times ~ always throw the Meteor

Enzy 06-17-2012 01:58 PM

from what b-mart is saying I guess I will throw GL Core from a stand still of course

Verjaeger 06-17-2012 02:22 PM

Definitely throwing the gatorade bottle on a slight hyzer. Stuff is stable as bawlz

chuckdisc 06-17-2012 04:52 PM


jkdisc 06-17-2012 05:28 PM

gator or buzzz

ChuckDiscs 06-17-2012 05:45 PM

Slightly beat in Voodoo on a anhyzer.

BogeyNoMore 06-17-2012 06:08 PM

One or the other (will decide on the tee):

Nebula to the right around the stuff, or Buzzz through the stuff.

Midnightbiker 06-17-2012 06:23 PM

Soft Focus

Ricta 06-17-2012 07:35 PM

Wizard...probably stand still

JR Stengele 06-17-2012 11:45 PM

flippy ce valk with no run up. Ob surrounding basket so I make sure I stay just left and hit the bird.

Apoth 06-18-2012 12:15 PM

Am I the only one who looks at the whole and things drone/fb skip? Throw it right, low, and with a lot of spin and I can get 50 feet of left skip on that shot pretty consistently.

mashnut 06-18-2012 03:21 PM


Hagström 06-19-2012 03:22 AM

Buzzz or Roc

Nothing frustrates me more than ****ty pictures.

Other than the few locals, most of you guys, just looking at the original pictures would have no idea what this hole actually requires in order not to get a bogey.

Its a tough little hole.

I live a few minutes from this course, so I went down and took some better pictures today.

I would love it if Grip would make a note in the original post that better pictures are available on page four of the thread.

Look at these, then you may want to repost a disc and shot choice if necessary.

First, this is an overall hole view. The tee is in the woods directly in front of the camera, the basket is at the far right hand side of the picture, right of the last tree you see.


I want everyone to see that a thumber, or other up and over shot is not an option, a low line drive is the only way to get there.

Next, is the " wide right " option. This is also a no go, as you can see from the tee box, there is too much low hanging brush on the right for that shot.


This leaves the tunnel as the only option.
So , looking straight out from the tee, first thing you have to do is decide which gap you want to throw through.


As you can see, a couple of small trees force you to play either the left or right gap. The gap on the left, between the small trees and the larger tree on the left side is about six feet wide at around 5 feet off the ground. This is the best spot to throw through to get to the basket.

The gap on the right of the small trees is also an option, but, because the tee is elevated, you need to throw downhill to hit it, and then you would need the disc to rise back up, then hyzer left towards the basket.

Here is the view from the front of the teebox, looking directly toward the basket. This shows that any shot slightly left, or right off the tee is gonna meet with instant disaster.


Here is a zoom of the basket, from the tee, to show you the gap you need to hit.


Next post I will add the rest of the challenges to this little hole.

captain jack 06-19-2012 10:00 PM

Ok, so you cleared the first gap. Next, your shot needs to maintain exactly the same height, not rising, or falling, in order to also clear the second narrow gap between two large trees about 150' out.

This is looking back towards the tee, with the two trees in the middle.


Last, you must stay inside of the OB. The roadway, and anything not on the basket side, are out of bounds. This limits most right to left fading shots, unless you get a lucky skip back across the road to the inbound side.


The basket is within 10' of the road, and OB wraps around the basket, from the right, to all the way along behind the pin, so long shots, or bad skips, also usually result in a par or bogey.

So, for a righty, its a putter or mid, on a line drive, slight anny through the gap, no fade, slide up just short of the pin kinda shot.

InnocentCrook 06-19-2012 10:28 PM

Great little short 9 holer. Got to play it a couple times while out in Seattle for a few months last summer.

Ion, all the way.

prestonkuke21 06-21-2012 07:55 PM

Challenger through that little gap if it right in front of the tee. If not, touch shot with a Hornet.
