The discussion IS about this hole. Why respond to me if you're speaking in generalities? Yes there's lanes in the Nocky picture, there's also lanes in OPs image.

Again, respect where it's due, I'm just a non PDGA member *******.

I think there was a also side conversation going on about course design principles in general. Just sort of lost in the middle of my posts.

The hole in question is definitely the outlier here. Look at all those deuces!

Slightly misleading, though.They were playing that round from the rec tees, but the "Fore more" section of Valley Springs doesn't have rec tees. The Final Round is from the whites and isn't quite as deuce laden.

His point being (I'm assuming) is zero of those five scored a deuce...while most of the rest of the card is full of twos. Proves Cgk correct and me wrong.

I stand by my statements

Yeah, I'll stand by the idea that the lanes to the pin are tough to access as compared to the rest of the course, even from the whites.

But the lanes are there, so I just need to maneuver myself around that hole better. Unless my drive is in the right spot I just need to play for my four. Just try and get to the mouth of one of those lanes.

It's hard to tell exactly from the pictures but I feel I've seen much harder holes. Those trees in the fairway have no branches until at least 30 feet up it appears. And it's a par 4 at 315 feet.
