Default Is this supposed to be a joke? (Hole #3 Disctractions @ Hueston Woods)



Basket is roughly 300' out slightly to the right of center & backs up on a ravine. Left side is relatively fair.

Seems like a roller might be good? Been throwing RHFH here but usually don't put enough on it for fear of it ending up in the ditch.

Thoughts?

What's the joke? Is it unsafe?

I've only played three rounds there, twice playing hole three from the long tee (as above). Took a 3 and a 5 as a first year player throwing rhbh. What you don't want to do is roll to the ravine on the right. Yep, the tee shot is sensitive, and just might require discing down to get a safe line, play for a three, but it's not impossible...

i'd probably try the fuse or summit through the gap on the left. something i can trust will turn a bit.

or maybe flex something overstable, but it's allllll going through that left gap unless the view from the front left of the tee offers me the chance to put my breaker on a hyzer through the right side with a standstill delivery. tough to tell which gap is larger with that view. tough, but yeah.

Tough gap, but not uncommon for Midwest golf. Sack up and rip it. If you miss, send a mid or Fairway driver to the pin, take your three. No joke.

Looks legit to me. There's at least three good lines right off the tee, or so it seems from the picture. One of these days I ought to play it when I visit Oxford.

I don't like playing a lot of holes that are wide open or only with a few trees in my way, I like a challenge. This seems like a great hole to me & looks like a decent roller or forehand hole (RHBH).

Big RHFH flex shot around the tree on the right?
