Default Hardest hole you have played

Not necessarily your favorite hole, although the ones on my list are some of my favorite holes. What is the hardest hole out there from a technicality standpoint? Some of my nominees are:

Moraine #6 - 934 feet from the gold tee, 675 feet from the blue tee. Par 5 that plays through patches of trees and plays like a tunnel shot to the right of the these patches. You have to keep your disc very straight for a very long distance to score well here.

Idlewild #11 - 441 feet par 4 with a mando through the infamous y-tree. Then you have to play through dozens of tiny trees and a creek that zig zags back and forth and is o.b. THEN, your disc must land on the turf green or you are penalized another point. About 4 different places where you can be penalized an extra point if you don't execute properly.

Linbrook #7 - 885 feet par 4. Have to hit a pretty extreme hyzer just right as the fairway winds downhill in order to have a chance at a decent up shot. A lot of trees to contend with to the pin.

Deer Lakes #9 - 846 feet from the blue tee, 774 feet from the white tee. Plays pretty open for the first few hundred feet, then you have to hit a tight window to enter the woods. From there, plays slightly downhill and through a lot of trees with a nasty drop behind the pin.

Peregrine Point #3 - I think I read that they recently changed this hole? Hopefully not, because this is one of my favorite holes I've ever played. Only 250 feet and a par 3, but it plays next to an incredibly deep drop off. That risk-factor alone makes this a super scary hole. Your throw will go over this deep valley, but SHOULD hyzer back on land. However, there is a large o.b. area that is tough to avoid. Plays through many trees to the get to the basket.

I struggle with uphills, and with woods that demand particular (not even necessarily super-precise) lines.

So... though I've shot a three on Idelwild #11 (one of the most amazing holes in disc golf) a couple of times now, I never shot better than a 6 on the 588' hole #6. It plays uphill through a left turning lane, to a landing zone, where you have to essentially S- curve (left then right) through a second full drive lane to reach the tight green. I've been involved in a five there twice in doubles (never came close to 'par' alone).

Don't get me started on the difficulty of the 510' hole #5. Most everyone I've seen is happy with a five on that one too (but I've seen a doubles partner take a three on it once). All good, tough, stuff. Yet everyone talks about the thousand footer at Idlewild. That may be the 5th or 6th toughest hole on the course.

But other courses... hmmm. It's really hard to deuce hole #18 at Charlie Vettiner, #5 or #18 at Elon Park - Angry Beaver, #11 at Handyman Ace Hardware, or #5 at Mt.Airy!

Selah Ranch Lakeside Hole 7. The infamous island hole. The hardest, but also the most beautiful hole I've ever played.
