Not much room if you can't carry the water.

The middle of that playground is only about 200 feet away. Totally reachable.

BUT any hole that even remotely has a secondary landing zone being a 'playground' needs to be "rethought". Just poor.

That's an understandable viewpoint on the situation, from the rules statepoint, but none that would increase the fun for me. Losing discs is no fun. Losing discs intentionally, even less. That's more like intentionally littering the environment ...

It looks to me like any shot of at least 140' that finishes right, and goes OB over the walkway, still results in a better lie than the drop zone. Seems like a better option than going straight to the DZ, unless you're concerned you'll put it in the pond even while trying to avoid it.

Per the original post, he is a FH only player and has trouble with fading into the water even when he tries to throw OB.

Actually, he seems to say his discs wind up right (away from water)....but that he still manages to miss and throw some in.

I know the feeling. I've sunk discs on easy water carries and holes running up the shore with plenty of safe landing area. It's a talent. Or lack thereof.

Looking at that shot as a LHBH only player, that hole terrifies me. I think I'd be seriously considering the playground route. Or, maybe a floater disc and just roll it into the water.

As to the rules question. If it were my course I'd have a option for lower power players to have a shot without loosing plastic built into the course. The best way would be to make the DZ be an official tee for lower divisions. My home course has 3 pads on each hole so this isn't a problem, but I forget that some courses are set up quite as nice.
