The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
White River in Auburn, WA is my closest home course. Been out the past 2 days tromping around and realized one of the shortest holes on the course is Scary, especially when the River is high....
It's only 285ft. from the Blue and about 235ft. from the red tees. For a RHBH thrower, it's a short, hard anhyzer line into the trees that go down the embankment to the White River.
The angle of the embankment is MUCH steeper than my cell phone cam makes it look. MANY people end up skipping, or rolling, down into the river and loosing a disc... Thought I did yesterday, but got Lucky....
What's your Scary hole????
Hmmmm can't remember the exact hole, but hole 12 through 18 at Seatac are just killers. I knew I was in for it when the guy I was playing with (Masters WA champ in 2010). Was all giddy because he shot his best ever of +9 the last time he played it. But if I'm correct 12 starts of with a dog leg left and bushes running through the fairway. Then it makes a slight dog leg right (kind of like it's own helix) with a few hundred ft to the basket and then it just gets better after that. God I LOVE that coure!!!
P.S. Hey Jeff! I'll be up there the third week in May. Lets get together and PLAY!
Oh HECK YA!!! Looking forward to it! Let me know when you have things nailed down and I'll make sure to give my Wifey-Poo enough notice! :)
Cool! Were leaving the 23rd and coming back the 30th, but making it a two day trip up and back. Just can't do those crazy 16hr drives anymore!
Going to visit my better halfs son and family, but there will be some disc'in for sure! I always have to play Seatac, but there are sooooo many courses to choose from and just never enough time. Will get in touch as it gets closer to trip time. If you have any must play courses you want to check out, let me know. If we can get some courses that are close to each other as well as some shopping (for the ladies) close by. That would be perfect!
This hole is scary for me due to my average drive being right around 300' forehand, and 290 backhand. Hole length is 280'.
Also hoe 2 at Water Works park in Ypsilanti, Mi is kind of scary. I don't have a pic of it right now but Its like 180' from the shorts to 200' from the longs. the hole has a quick flowing river that runs the left side of the fairway and wraps around behind the pin. Makes you wonder about running the basket or not.
Yeah, I recall that hole at White River..
Stoney Hill, Diamond layout, hole 16. Tee shot must clear 250' of water and land on an "island" landing area, with water to left and O.B. road & beyond to right. From landing area, throw back over pond (moving up the pond) to basket; depending on the placement of your drive, you may be covering 220-350' of water. Or chickening out and trying to throw further up the shore to land on a narrow strip of land, to shorten the second throw across water.
Hole 18 Barnett Park Northside!!!!! 317ft Island green!!!!
lost my last ace disc on this white river hole a couple days ago
That BLOWS Nate..... What was it? I'll prod around next time I am there and see if I can spot it....
The many water hazzards we have in Florida with gators claiming their territory.
Lol. Now, that does actually sound Scarier than just losing a disc.... :)
One retention pond at our course has a young 3-5 ' gator,while another water hole not on the dgc but within the park has an 8' gator.There are a certain group of "divers" that now get their discs for their own enjoyment from "salvaged' discs.Karma and mother nature will suffice.Hope I'm not there that day.
