I am confused because the map doesn't seem to line up with the picture but it is what it is. I also don't know which tee is in the picture.

I will go based off the picture. I think I would throw my Saint Pro over the bush on the right so that it is safe from the water and fades left toward the basket over land.

If I feel extra adventurous I might throw my Underworld out over the water and hyzer flip it toward the basket.

Probably a Teebird, maybe a PD.

Probably a Champ Viking, because I don't care if it turns over. I bet the pond divers LOVE this hole.

On the shorts, probably a Star Teebird.

Theory, to the right of the bush, cutting the corner wide. Axis for the approach.

No way I could avoid the water if I went for the basket.

There's kind of a long story to all that. This course has always been basically a swamp on the front 9 and for that reason, it has undergone several partial redesigns and has never really had the love of the local club. Just so nobody thinks I'm slamming the club, I was a founding member along with exactly -1- of the current members, so I know the whole story. This hole is new with the last redesign. (and a good job it was, the current layout is the best it's been in my opinion. )

So that's why the map is pretty much useless after hole 6, and the distances are off too. There may be an "unofficial" tee that the club uses to play "longs" for club events, but last time I was there (been a bit ago) this hole only had one tee, and I think it's ~300 ft.

That said, I threw a spike hyzer way up with a Wraith and came in pretty close. If it was windy, a lower shot out wide with a Teebird would probably get ya an easy par on a dangerous hole.

EDIT: I took a look at the map. The water in the picture is not on that map at all, haha. This water is way off the right of the current map. Holes 14-17 were a bit dinky and were taken out altogether to make room for new holes that play off to the right of the current map. The holes start just to to the right of the parking lot located beside the legend on the map.

I'd love to update this course properly, and maybe I could do it this summer, but I live ~45 minutes away and don't have a way to measure the holes either.
