The is hole# 5 on the backside course at the famous La Mirada DGC. It is a par 3, 354ft shot with trees lining the right side of the fairway and hill dropping off to the left that is also tree lined. The pin is protected in the front by a low growing acacia tree. Watcha gonna throw?

I throw an Opto Saint down the left hand tree line and let it turnover most of the way and fades out about 30ft left of the hole. Depending on my lie, I either go for it with my Aviar, or lay up the putt because the hill runs away behind the basket pretty quickly.

River off the tee, then Wizard to finish up.

Star Destroyer out to the right, try to get it to skip under the low limbs. Try to make a bird with an Ω SS.


Max weight* NUKE OS flick or x12 Ken Climo Tee Bird.

ive played this during so cal championships,,,sidewinder,

Kind of depends on your arm strength. When I was younger , a Champion TeeBird. Now , probably a Destroyer and have it skip up just pass the tree for a putt.


I Love La Mirada Disc Golf Course and always have !!!!

Nice looking golf hole.... depends on the wind. If little to no wind or any tail wind I'll throw a light blizzard Wraith. If head or cross wind I'll throw a 150 ish Blizzard Katana. but I'm an older player and only the down slope on this hole puts it remotely in my range..

I would probably forehand a halo or a blitz depending on the wind conditions. Headwind Blitz, tailwind halo.

Anyone who ever wants to play a round here with me, just let me know.


I'll try and post a few more holes for everyone to look at.

I'll be playing there in sept.. depending on how it looks in person, I'll flip a westside king hard over the left tree.
