Default Amen Corner; disc golf style

In honor of this past weekend's Masters; congrats to Phil (and Tiger); this is my version of 3 of the most famous holes in all of golf.

Number 7, 8 & 9 at Wilson-Tuscarora SP. And Amen Corner is a perfect description. Perhaps the 3 toughest holes on the course. And as it happens number you turn a corner after 7 and start heading back towards the start of the course.

Number 7 is a 345' dead straight tunnel shot up a slight rise and then down again. There is a small creek behind the basket that is OB.

Number 8 is an even tighter tunnel with a much lower ceiling. On the plus side its only 326'.

Number 9 is short and accessable at 278', but you have to hit the tinest gap between the overhanging woods on the right and assorted trees and power pole down the middle and to the left. And the entire distance is undulating ground and the basket is blind from the teebox.

Thanks to the powers that be for keeping this park open.

I took a look at the pictures here, and they do indeed look like very good/fun/challenging holes! I would love to play them.

I am confused though by your "this is my version of 3 of the most famous holes in all of golf" comment. I have never even heard of this course before and these holes are certainly not the most famous/best/hardest 3 holes. Care to explain/clarify?

Neat topic though. I would propose Renaissance Gold holes 11, 12 & 13 (10 & 14 too) as holes on a turn that are challenging and famous, and have players ecstatic when completing them even 1-2 strokes under par (par is 14 for those 3, and 22 for all 5)

I did not mean to imply that these were the hardest, best or most famous. Sorry if I gave that impression. I was feeling a Masters hangover and the term Amen Corner seemed appropriate to call these 3 holes. I don't have the credentials to define the 3 best in this form of golf.

And I welcome anyone else's experience as their idea of an Amen Corner. And I'd love to get frustrated at Renaissance Gold.

Another nomination is one of my favorite spots in all of DG is Lincoln Ridge is the turn at holes 14-18. Not grueling (although 15 is tough for a lefty with a slope down to a creek all along the right side), but supremely beautiful (especially when the creek is flowing) and secluded along with being very fun holes.

From a temp course (the North Course) in Amarillo:

Holes #12, 13,and 14. I call this stretch of holes "The Horseshoe". A Par 5 then 2 Par 4's. Hole 12 takes you to the end of the lake with the basket on the earth dam. Hole 13 plays downhill then across the creek/spillway. Hole 14 plays back up the other side of the lake, with the basket close to the water.

It's tough and it can break your leg if you're not paying attention(or have had too much to drink). True story...
