Default Best Holes, Period

I have a list of best holes I have ever played, period. I like to limit them to one a course, and here are just a few from the 20 courses I've played:

Hole 4, Brandywine
Hole 10, Jordan Creek
Hole 6, Lehigh Parkway
Hole 18, Tinicum
(Currently 6), Nockamixon
Hole 5, "c" position, Tyler State
Hole 12, Anson Nixon Park

Add your own and create something sort of "Best in the U.S!"

#7 at Ellison Park
#5 at Warwick (for the same reason as Raoul)
#1 at Prompton (Pin on small peninsula)
#5 Red at Codorus (great view throwing straight down to the lake)

There are probably some I'm missing but these are the ones that came to mind this morning.

Also, this hole at Aspen Mountain. I'm not sure what the hole # is, someone posted it over on discgolfreview but it looks amazing.

Hole 6 at The Whippin' Post, Paw Paw: 874 foot par 4 over a wide rolling fairway with forest on the right. Hole 13 on the Woodshed is a beauty too, 556 foot par 4 that takes off across the field, then over the dropoff down to the treeline, and back up a hill to the basket. (There's actually 4 or 5 of my new favorite holes there, but I really enjoyed these two. I didn't enjoy The Gauntlet so much as survived it, most grateful 5 I've ever gotten.)

Hole 27 at DeLaveaga is definitely one of the most picturesque, giving you a view out over Santa Cruz all the way to the ocean, and pretty fun to throw way out into space. But I think I like Hole 17 there better, the fairway makes a big arc to the right on a hillside that slopes down left to right, with the tree canopy coming from the trees on the right, and a whole bunch of trees down the slope to the left. I don't know why that one's my favorite (actually, hole 8a's where I got my only ace to date), but there's something about the shape of it that just gets me. Hole 13 there's pretty awesome too. Hell, that whole course is a delight.

Codorus State Park in Hanover, PA has several that would be signature holes anywhere else. I'll have to play it again to find the ones that give the extra thrill, hard to sort through all 54 of 'em after only 1 weekend.

Coyote Pointe DGC at Lake Casitas's most scenic hole is definitely 16, it's own "Top of the World" shot that goes 520ish feet out, but a couple hundred down, and provides an impressive view of the lake. But it's hole 15 there (in the long position, under the enormous oak on the hill) that I always get psyched up for.

I've only played Brandywine once, so my opinion might change on this one, but I really enjoyed hole 3. Hole 4 is "The Beauty", a big downhill shot over a creek to the basket, but hole 3's topography is really interesting, with the fairway dipping and coming back up, and the basket on the high side fo a 5 footish stone wall that runs along the road. Great hole.

Oo! Almost forgot, I played a Cain Creek Park in Cookeville, TN on my way across the country, and there were several really nice holes around the lake there. One in particular was nice and long, rollin' over the fairway, with a humungous tree in the middle of the fairway towards the end. Just beautiful. There's another great one there that goes over a bit of the lake shoreline to a peninsula, with woods guarding the back. Good "Tin Cup" hole.

Default Description of favorites

These are descriptions of my favorite holes:

Brandywine, 4: A 400 plus foot downhill with brush lining both sides of the fairway and one of just two holes with water interference. Pin is usually across the creek, and a birdie 3 is an outstanding score.

Jordan Creek, 10: Locally known as "Cardiac Arrest Hill", this hole from the long pin is over 400 feet and climbs a 45 foot hill. Conservative shots can net birdie, but a bad shot can easily card you a seven or eight.

Lehigh Parkway, 6: This hole starts out over by 5's pin and then makes a sharp left, then over the creek and past both the bushes and pine trees before the hole on top of the hill.

Nockamixon, (currently 6): This hole starts by the bathrooms, goes down 300 feet, then a left turn will take you almost 500 more feet! One of the longest ever played.

Tinicum, 18: This hole is 800 feet long and wide open, but the basket is protected and the creek lurks by.

Tyler State, 5th: This hole, when in the C position, stretches out for 750 feet and goes towards the right.

Anson Nixon, 12: A pro par 4 that borders a high hill on the right and US 1, a very busy expressway, on the left. Over 400 feet and hard to get to.

I gotta add hole #14 at Warwick - from the longs you have options at the silver pin and a downhill shot through a tight window towards the blue island green. Crappy phone pic shows blue (long) pin with approach gap in background.

Default best holes

My best would be:
#10 (Current) at Nockimixon. Par 3. Throw from an elevated tee down over and along a stream to a tight basket.
#14 at Warwick. Par 4. Simply awesome. It's a good drive downhill to a tight opening in the woods and then approach to an island green surrounded by a running stream.
#5 at Warwick. Par 4. One of the best greens in disc golf. Pin perched upon a 10 foot cliff.
#12 (Current) at Nockimixon. Pro par 3. Am par 4. Throw down a power line over a stream about 300 ft then another throw to another protected green with a stream on the backside. Very scenic hole.
#5 C at Tyler state park. Par 5. 799 ft long and very tight. It is demanding from the start to finish. Fours are possible but extremely rare and five is considered a victory.
# 6 C at Tyler state park. par 4 and a very tough 3. Dangerous drop off to the right down to the river and trees everywhere lining the tight fairway. 280 ft drive to landing then through a very tight gap over a drop and back up to the guarded green. The closer you get to the pin the more dangerous hazards become.
#18 Jordan Creek. Very cool hole. Par 4 Shoot down anhyzer through a relatively tight gap over Jordan creek, then a significantly long approach over Jordan creek again to a protected basket.
#6 at Little Lehigh Parkway. Pro par 3 Am par 4. Drive over OB field to a clearing then a 90 degree turn across the river and up a hill over and through nasty shule to the pin.

There are more but I may add them later. I still haven't been able to play Maple Hill, Brandywine, Renny, Winthrop, PawPaw, or idlewild. Although I will be playing Idlewild soon enough. I heard the view from the top of Campgaw in NJ is awesome but its such a hike to get up there I haven't been able to play it.
