I love this thread!

Winthrop Gold (excluding #10 trying to throw an controlled turnover into a headwind with a mando and OB close by) is pretty darn lefty favorable. I'd score well there if I could throw a controlled 425' (instead of a spastic 375'). 2 thru 5 definitely help to have the disc finishing right. 888 is much easier for a lefty. 16-18 is easier for a lefty.

Luther Britt looks like fun. Next time I'm off to the beach I'll have to give it a try.

Brookside is definitely lefty friendly (and home of my second ace ever on #4). Not a bad course for urban Indiana excluding the neighborhood.

Winget definitely has more holes that turn right than turn left. I'd say it favors a forehander/lefty by a hole or so. Some of those holes that look like LHBH holes but actually are better RHBH Anhyzers (8, 11). The "open" holes of 3 and 14 are tough to 2 for a LHBH due to the tailwind/downhill combo on 3 as a LHBHer throws turnover/anhyzer and the headwind/uphill combo on 14 when needing a big hyzer.

Hole 10 - lay up to the drop zone then it's a field shot to the pin.

Towne Lake depending on the pin placements can be lefty hyzer shots for 10 holes. the other 8 really just being neutral. most lefty friendly in Dfw

Blue Angel's Palmetto course has a lot of LHBH/RHFH hyzer lines. It's a short enough course not to punish your score if you're strictly RHBH, but you lose a lot of birdie opportunities if that's the case. Controlled turnovers often leave you short.

Agreed. My ratings are always significantly higher for tournaments that I play at Brookside compared to everywhere else.

Next year I'm gonna have to fool around and see how far I need to get it up the fairway to be able to get realistic throws at the pin. I max out a 375' in decent conditions so I probably have to hit it perfect to get into the landing area from the drop zone. My ability to gauge that distance on that hole is pretty poor the way the fairway goes wide left.

it sure makes it easier on someone who throws RHBH and RHFH. I often step to holes and wonder where the RHBH line is and what do limited righties do on these holes.

Winthrop #10 is def a tough lefty drive. I've learned to throw to dropzone then throw one across. #15 is also a funky lefty hole. Otherwise a bunch of teebirds and firebirds off the tee.
