Default Holes that you consider unfair?

Heritage Point in Dalton, GA is one of my favorite local courses. However, I believe #3 borders on being unfair. The hole is around 200 feet but the basket is placed on such a steep hill that any thing that doesn't go in rolls down the hill and then falls off an even steeper "cliff" below the hole. Once you are down the embankment, you really have no clear shot back to the basket. Tee shots will often stay on the initial slope, but any approach or put that doesn't go in rolls down the cliff. There is no grass on the hill, so it is very slick and just walking is treacherous.

So this begs the question, have you ever encountered a hole on one of your favorite courses that you felt was unfair.? If so, did you ever consider enforcing some special rule on said hole?

Or am I just being a whiner?

The optional rethrow rule could prove handy here.

Hole 4 at Saddle Hills in White Settlement is a bunch of crap.

11, 14 and 16 @ HP are all on steep slopes, you miss you walk to the bottom and search for your disc, that being said, if I play alone I don't play them, I can find other's discs quick enough but get irritated searching for my own, no value there, These holes are the reason I initially bought my soft Vibram Summit

Hole 4 at Baca in Albq. I wouldn't call it unfair but if you miss your putt by throwing past the pin, there's about a 15' drop straight down. Plan on using 2 more shots (and a good walk) to hole out if you miss. Oh yeah and the pin is protected by some trees. This ain't no kiddie course.

There's a hole at the Lowell course that's like 450 feet uphill with a very very narrow fairway.

this might sound like a lame pun but any hole that doesnt have a fairway i consider unfair. Like if the hole is just a mess of random trees, where one guy can throw a shot and get past everything, then the next guy can throw a shot thats just as good and kick off 3 trees

Any reason you have to edit your posts within 5 minutes? Dumb rule no?

attempt two.

Hole 15 rock river disc golf course in watertown.

400+ feet through the woods, no line at all. Has potential to be an awesome hole, but for now it sucks.

From the Pro tee, I think the arrow is pointing at where the next picture takes place cause that is no where near the basket

From where the arrow was pointing at the first picutre I think?

From the basket looking back
