For this my criteria is that it reachable for a deuce but I often take a 4 or more. Holes like this for me are


Hole 7/8 at BRP 372 ft
Hole 9 Lakewood Hills 255 ft

I think Hole 9 at Lakewood might be one of my favorite tricky par 3 holes... that was never intended to be tricky.

I love crazy basket positions like this. I have to play this course next time I am near Charlotte. There are so many in that area it seems overwhelming to figure out which ones to play.

Hole 12 at Seatac, man that hole has bothered me since the 18 hole configuration when it was 7. Something about that strange low ceiling/high ground turnover. I double bogey that hole more often than it should. It's a mental challenge now.

Two nemesis holes:
#8 Castle Hayne: 750' double dogleg Par 5. I'm a lefty, so I have to throw a high long anny up a slope off the tee to get a look at the fairway, then a 250'+ tunnel shot to get a look at the basket, then a 250' low-straight shot onto a right-sloping green. Three perfect shots and a long putt for birdie. Shoot, I'm more than happy with a Par 5.

#16 Richlands: 408' Par 4, played as a Par 3. Narrow opening about 175' from the tee to a down slope with OB on the right (field), left (woods) and down the middle (long row of trees that are marked OB for tourneys). Laying up in front of the guarded opening still gives me a 230' downhill throw to a basket that hugs the right-side OB. Getting a 3 is tough for me, and a 4 is not always a gimme.

Man, this game/sport is FFUUNN!!

Glen Hilton number 5. LHBH with a creek along the right side all the way past the basket. With two basket locations, you would think one might be a bit easier, nope. My go to disc as a beginner is a leopard. It will s turn nicely every time EXCEPT #5. I get so hung up on the water I hyper right in 8/10 times.

The wide open, 350ish holes. No line to hit, out of my range, but close enough to it, when I step to the tee I always think if I get a great drive, I could get close enough. That's when I end up grip locking, taking a 4 or more, telling myself to remember to play within my limits, redoing the same process the next time I'm on a similar hole.

Hole 5. Fallasburg Park in Lowell, MI (just east of Grand Rapids)

First picture is early spring, so it's usually MUCH more overgrown. Anyway, 500', significantly uphill, dense and harsh cabbage left and right... I'm usually happy just to take a 5. Which is shameful. I usually actually do better with just a putter, but I'm prideful and always try to bite off more than I should...

It's embarrassing to admit but hole #1 at Lake Wilson gives me fits. First round I played there I was a noob so my RHBH hyzered nicely into the water. Second round I had found out about different molds a little and had a nice understable disc. Which I also hyzered into the water. Third round, I had learned a lot from a new buddy and was actually throwing RHFH pretty well. Except at Lake Wilson where my flick rolled over and went in the lake (my buddy aced it that day on his first visit to the course). So I am 3 for 3 in the lake, have not been back since.
