Default HoD 5/24/19 - #8 at Pleasant Hill DGC in Scarborough, ME

708' par 5 with water in play to the right of the pin.



I'm blasting a Mayhem a little high and to the left, and angling it so that it turns over gently and rides a mild anny down most the fairway, before fading out. Shooting to land close enough for a simple stand still flick upshot, then sinking the putt for eagle.

According to the course map, the water is only at the very end of 8:


I'm going to throw a RHBH roller with a big-z thrasher

This one looks like fun.

Looks like a FH with my FD3 to get around that corner, followed by a CD2 to get down the fairway, and then approach with my MD.

Roadrunner as far as I can get it with either a PD flick or Roadrunner BH to the green with hopes of a decent putt.

I'd be going with a STD roller to start with... Slight downhill and wide open? See if I can get 500' off the tee.

This has got to be the easiest course I've ever played, but still very fun. The par for the course is INCREDIBLY generous... my first time there I shot -13 according to the scorecard. My understanding is they use a different par for leagues and tournaments, for that reason.

iirc on this hole I just tried to mash something out there and let it do its thing. It was a few years ago, so it was probably a Sidewinder or a Beast.

Looking at this hole I feel like it'd be a par 4 rather than 5.

Take the par on literally every hole on this course and subtract at least 1 from that number. There are some par 4s simply because its farther than like 300ft. The course is an old chip and putt course. Wide open, mostly flat. There's no pins that cant be reached in two throws.
