For the short, stand still X Pred or just toss a Z Buzz.

For the long, I suppose I could chunk a Vulcan down there and watch it S around. I would have to try more than one throw off of there. I think I would throw my ESP Cyclone for a second throw. I would be more accurate with it.

This is one of my favorite courses! I threw an epic off here once with a 20+ mph cross wind :P

You have to almost throw down if you want you drive to go far.

I'd go wraith to ion for the almost duce.

I haven't thrown many big drop off shots like this, so I'm not sure what I'd throw. First shot, I'll try a Champ Valky, and try to play the s-curve. Then try a SOLF and play more of big hyzer shot. Even at 500+ it seems u could get pretty close to it and just be left with a short approach. Then again, I'll most likely end up in the parking lot, lol.

I never play the shorts.

Things of note since I have played this a ton of times and have lost more than my fair share of discs:

You will have massive air under your discs early. Anything that turns over is going to cross the walking path on the right and is going to be stuck deep in the woods. To make matters worse, there are giant trees just off the tee box that while do not interfere with your throw, they do make anything going right blind. If you turn over and float down into that forest, often you will not see it land and your search is going to be based upon how you think your disc would act during the last 20 percent of its flight.

Also, considering the distance and that the elevation does flatten out after this massive drop, if you throw any disc that has any low speed stability it is going to fade out hard, robbing you of valuable distance. If you can see in the basket picture, there are some mature trees that hang over the basket and do a great job protecting it from discs that need to approach from angles not coming directly at the basket.

There is nothing wrong if you have the power and control to tee off with a putter, make only 70% of the distance, and trust a longer approach. Several times I have done this for fun because of the elevation the putter is going to float a long way and will not fade out on you. It is a slightly longer approach, but it is a clean approach at the basket.

However, what I normally do is throw a Teebird or River here because they have no low speed fade. They will simple keep going to the basket. When I throw things like a Destroyer, Wraith, Sword, or any of the other big boys in my bag, they always fade out or turn over because I am trying too hard to take the fade out. I can make the base of the wood or on the first tier with a Teebird or River. At that point I am already putting for a 2. I have made 2 twice and have had numerous other opportunities that I have blown because of bad putting. Yet if there is any wind, that usually takes me a little off to the right or left, again making those guardian trees a factor, but still an easy 3 as long as I play my game.


What I do:

Drive: TeeBird or River
Putt or approach and then putt: Whatever putter I am carrying in my bag, currently an Ion and a Polecat

Sweeeet hole. Short would be an easy Z Comet, long would be an Echo star boss or Z force depending on the wind. Followed of course by a Challenger.
