Simple and sweet.
What is the most difficult hole you ever played ?
Please name the state, course, hole number and a good description of required shots.
I'll give an example.
Tuscawilla Park, Daytona Beach Florida
Hole number 14.
From the "A" pad, it is roughly 421 feet to the basket.
From the pad you'll have to throw straight and dog leg it right towards the basket.
The basket is on a "Small" Island.
They call it a Par three.
I have never made anything less then 4 for that hole. I average a 5 or 6.
Sorry Vic to keep correcting you...but the A pad to the Island placement is 516. With a drop zone rule that requires one to land dry on the island before proceeding from the island...unless, of course you sink the putt from across the water. Anything in the ob water, goes to the drop zone with a stroke.
Love hole 14 at Tuscawilla but yes it is a game breaker.lol
The Beast at Brandywine...5 is a good score....a 4 would...well, I would be ecstatic.
Hole 16 at Hyzer Creek...another hole I remember as 5 being a good score...a 4 would be really good.
Keep correcting me.
With your corrections, the hole sounds that more difficult.
If it still the same hole that I played around 1997-1999, it is a legitimate par 4. Either you get it in position to hit the gap and make the 4 or you don't and card a 5 or 6. It is/was a round buster hole...1st to 3rd in a flash.
I remember Jake showing me how to get it done
This is a tough question and I think that the answer lies in a hole that is both challenging and has the correct rating for par. An example is our "super deep" position on hole 16 at Cottonwood Creek. It isn't the most beautiful hole, just a difficult hole because you have to find your way through the trees uphill to a position that can't be seen from the tee. I believe that the correct par for that position would be four as generally only the big arms can card a three with any regularity. So if it were a par four then I would still find it challenging but maybe a bit more manageable. I refer to the hole as "The Equalizer" because it can easily get you a 5 if you aren't careful.
I really haven't played enough courses to find that "most difficult" hole. I'm sure that there are a lot out there. I love hole 18 at Sipapu because it is an 800 ft. downhill shot. Awesome to look down at that tiny pin. Almost birdied it once. There can be so many reasons for a "most difficult" hole in disc golf. You can have length, island holes, tunnel shots, blind shots, water, etc.
hole 8 in the long position
par 5, (a 5 is my best)
hole goes right the whole 1000', while the hill slopes left to right THE WHOLE WAY. Add to that a 15' ceiling 85% of the way making it impossible to get a drive out past 300, ever. The kicker a OB steam 20' in front of the pin surrounded by trees guarding the green and OB road 10' behind the pin.
