For whatever reason, I fell back into the notion of this thread today at lunch. Maybe it's the long winter, snow last night and freezing rain expected tomorrow night. Blech.

But I searched for the next number (863') and got this listing at the top of the Google results:

Gentlemen's Club Challenge Presented by Disc Golf ... - LVDGC
lvdgc.com/Events/13gcc/13GCCPacketPros.pdf‎
Welcome. Welcome to the fourteenth Gentlemen's Club Challenge (GCC) disc golf ... Vegas Disc Golf Club, and Chipotle Mexican Grill! Back in ...... Par 5 - 863 ft.

I can't go to the Las Vegas site on my work computer (can't access sin city!) to see if they had the course set up in a special way, but will that do for 863'?

I can't access this link either, but one of the two MUST qualify, yes?

I don't have an 865 footer but I have played that course, that may be my favorite hole 18 of all time... especially because when I played it there was a 20 MPH right to left crosswind/headwind,/ and I threw my first and second shots perfectly, ending up with one heck of an eagle to put me -1 (it played really really hard with that much wind)
Pardon the digression but I couldn't help it, that's a man sized hole that's a blast to play. Was my first and only time playing it.

Nice necrobump.

So we're looking for 865, with the following 18 distances missing: 736, 754, 758, 766, 769, 781, 791, 806, 809, 828, 829, 833, 838, 841, 845, 851, 857 and 859 (which if done properly, would make a helluva course).



... if you build it, we will come.

Sounds like long-for-the-sake-of-long

I'll play it once and never go back

I found a course where the back nine adds up to 736 feet. Does that count?

Why not?

Beats the only 736' hole we can find, being the hole it's absence leaves in our list.

I'm expanding Blatnick Park DGC to 18 and one of the new holes along the Mohawk measures approximately 733". I'm gonna go out and move the tee back 3 feet.

Hole 9 Blue
