Hole 11 @ Seven Oaks park:

The "A" position is rarely played. It's a short shot up the hill and to the right. I (RHBH) throw an easy flick shot up the middle and allow the disc to fade right towards the bucket. Should be an easy deuce(80%). I've seen folks throw putters/mids right at it, but you have to miss all the pegs in the plinko machine to get there, and it's more luck than anything(which is a common review of a few holes at 7Oaks).

The "B" position (pictured) is a straight shot up the middle, with a few guard trees at the top of the hill. The distance on this one is correct, but it plays about 50' farther due to the elevation. I'd say most Gold level players throw putter/mid to this position, but everybody else is throwing mid/driver. I prefer a stable roc thrown hard and flat right up the middle. This one ranges from a good birdie for most players(25%) to a must have for 1000 rated(75%).

The "C" position is about 50' left and a little deeper than "B" position. The distance on this one is probably off a little bit, as it plays every bit of 300' up the hill. I throw a more overstable Teebird on a slight hyzer up the middle, and try to go left of the trees at the top of the hill. That shot results in a skip towards the basket and a putt for a solid birdie 2. This position is a great birdie for most players(10%), and probably 40% for the 1000 rated golfer, and it's one of the few pin positions at 7 Oaks that makes you happy to be right-handed. =) In the "C" spot, nobody is driving with a putter!
