Tree lined fairways where this is no option for a hyzer, anhyzer or thumber...just straight up the gut. I think it's a confidence issue and probably a practice issue. Our local course never demands this of you.
What trees? At least that what I tell myself when I play courses like that. Give me trees! because now I can compete with the big arm. More or less.
If you play a glow round and your disc hits a tree, does it still make a noise??
YES! A nice crisp CRACK! in the night air. But then you can say, where'd that tree come from?! and at all surprised when in reality you play that course all the time. :-)
Hmm...good strategy. "The trees are my friend." I've got a new mantra. :-) I DO feel this way about the wind. I feel like I'm a good windy day player.
easy one...Idlewild...why? Because it's tough.
Ski Resort courses. Such as Crystal Mt. in Washington. They have such steep uphill shots or downhill shots. You really have to carefull not to turn your wrist over on those steep downhill shots or it ends up in another zip code. But the biggest bummer is the footing. The terrain is so rocky, aside from your drive. You really cant have a run up on your 2nd shot due to all the rubble. So I found it hard to adjust to throwing stationary.
totally agree. Ski Resorts are tough courses. Silver Mountain in St. Ignace, MI is the toughest by far course I have played. Some holes I could almost touch trees on both sides of the fairway. It was a blast tho.

If you're going to talk about ski resort courses...go to Colorado...Winter Park, Copper Mountain, Kiss the Sky in Aspen, Adventure Ridge in Vail, Beaver Creek, Durango Mountain Resort...or Sipapu in my neck of the woods in northern New Mexico...
Sipapu is awesome!!!
yes it do! it should be open soon!
Orange Crush in Fairmont, WV is the toughest of the 50 courses I have played. It is easier now than when it first went in but still the toughest fron the long tees. Aside from the challenge it is physically grueling, you are exhausted after just 1 round.
