Should a 300' elevation drop be wasted on a single hole? You can make 3-5 nice elevation drops out of that!

But if you do, note that the 17 holes to reach the top have an average of 18' elevation gain each. If you siphon off half that in the transition walks between holes, it's even more modest.

Of course, the answer to the question not asked is, "Either choice is a waste of a 300' hill."

But forced to choose, I'd play uphill to get to the one downhill hole, because I'd rather play than just walk. But I wouldn't play that course very often.
