Question How would you play this hole, part III

Hole #7) Johnny Roberts Memorial Disc golf park.





-The pin is in position B
-The south side of creek, creek itself, road, and sidewalk left of pin are all OB
-This leaves 2 narrow safe landing strips up to the pin
-The foliage is much denser now than in these pictures, so the gap on tee side of creek is much tighter


I'd say more than 50% of the tee shots I see from this hole end up OB.

Leopard hard line-drive up the gut, right at the pin.

Played this hole. Used a Champ Viking released flat and faded. Got it to land on the the grass right up next to the basket. Easy biridie from there. Next hole I got a bogey on a surely par or birdie hole.

Got one over about 50 feet from the pin on the grass sloped up from the sidewalk. Lets hope this can be replicated on Saturday. 1st time in a while I have stayed In bounds on this hole.

Since I've played this hole a million times, I'll tell you how I play it. I aim straight at the pin from the left side of the tee pad (the mud) and throw my Star Wraith about 75%, making sure I release it flat or with a tiny little hyzer. Most of the time, it cuts into the hill and I have a downhill 20-footer for birdie. If it cuts too much to the left, I'm still fine, I just have a longer putt. If I miss it right, I will sometimes hit the tree, but the Wraith cuts back so hard by that point that I am still over the creek.

What I've learned: do not try to get it close, it's a sucker pin. Also, use something stable to increase your chances of making it over the creek every time.

You do not want to do what I did here last Friday.

In reality though, I have always taken something overstable and aimed at the right side of the gap knowing that the creek is small enough that an overstable disc will fade right over the creek. The toughest part about this hole is the mental side of it.

So 7a and b the baskets are in 8's fairway? Looks like a fun hole, but from the map it also looks dangerous.

Yeah these are the two holes that create a big back up. You have to wait for people to finish hole 8 before you can shoot 7 plus contend with pedestrians.
