My favorite hole to throw would have to be hole 16 at Kincaid DGC pro tee .it's roughly 444 ft in the new extended island position ,you overlook a 150 ft shallow hollow with several guardian trees protecting the green that you can either ani around or tomahawk over .your tee shot is important for setting yourself up for your approach shot to the green that is cut out of tall grass and is not visable from the tee pad or even from your first shots landing spot if you dont land on the far edge, for the hole has several down then up then down to the basket island elevation changes so most shots are blind .there are even more guardian tree's with tons of dream catchers to knock down your approach shot and there are several windows each requiring you to pick your route carefully .i have had many shots i thought were heading for the green get knocked down by dream catchers guarding the basket.when you throw in the awesome view of cook inlet with sleeping lady and denali in the background it becomes a great hole and one of my favorites.

my favorite is the 3rd hole, long pin position at South Boulder Park in Boulder, CO. it's about 700 feet and maybe 20 feet downhill so you can really air it out on a forehand. small aspens to the short left, big pines deep right, and the pin is on top of a 10 foot hill. i used to love chuckin my max weight champ groove (i haven't played it since i got my eco-star), when it's downwind or still and watching it skip straight up the incline next to the pin. nothin better than a perfect downhill groove trajectory
Kiss It Goodbye hole on Aspen Mountain, not too tough but a beautiful hole. If you're left, you better be part billy goat, if you're right you're climbing almost straight down into the pines fifty feet or so. And if you overthrow the 450 feet or so, and gor thirty past the basket, Kiss It Goodbye. Unless you have an extra hour or two to retrieve your disc.
I was playing one year with a lefty and the hole is a natural right handed hyzer. He got a lot of lift and didn't stick his annie, it went up about seventy-five feet in the air and hyzered right down the mountain over a thousand feet. He had bad knees so didn't try to go get it jus took a stroke and threw again. lmao, that disc flew outta sight.
My favorite hole always seems to be the next one I walk up to. A few years back I was lucky enough to draw the Champ, Ken Climo in random doubles. As we were playing we walked up to a hole and I said "I hate this hole" he said to me " "Curtis, you have to walk up to every hole as if it was your favorite hole" Since then I love every hole I play.
Good advice - I agree wholeheartedly!
Tough Call...I played a lot of cool holes..TN....DE....CT...MA...the legendary Gran Canyon's hole 1 in Brooksville, FL
Hard too narrow it down too 1.

Home course....Hole 6 Long tee to long placement...524 big dog leg around to the left...thick woods on the left...small ditch on the right for the first 300 or so feet...placement drive to the corner or just around...approach to the basket into a funnel like tunnel.

Looking forward to a new longer placement on 10 I'm working on...about the same distance as 6 but hard dog leg back around to the right...drive to set your self up for a tunnel shot or if you go to far on the drive...an option to hang one over a non busy OB park road back around to the pin.

Another cool hole that's makes the top of my list....hole 16 at Hyzer Creek in NY.. 'S' shaped hole heading down hill from the tee...narrow tunnel like fairway...pin in the creek.

Placement..Placement....Go for it!!!
Now that I know I can clear the water. I would have to say hole 13 at "the ponds of lakeshore" in ypsilanti, mi. Used to hate the hole till last sunday when I finaly cleared the water. It was sweet.
hole 9 oshtemo, buzzz buzzz par, OR you go for it and take a 6 or 7
Hole #2 Long Tee at The Farm, in Farmington Hills, Michigan. Now that I know I can Clear the water.

Hole #1 at BRATS, my house. Requires you to just stand there and deliver a massive spike hyzer, through a not too wide area, and land in a small field safely on the other side. Nothing like a spike hyzer shot to start the day.
Live Oak City Park, Live Oak TX. (san antonio) - hole 10

the hole is 270' over a creek. looking off the teebox, it seems the fairway is a tunnel shot through some trees slightly right (15 degrees or so off center) about halfway between the tee and basket. the hole is approx 15-20' wide and i can never make it. if i empty my bag, i might hit it clean 1 out of 10 times... so i go around to the left. it would be a BIG lefty hyzer to get around and over from the left of the basket (about 45 degrees or so). and i pull one of my dx rocs right around there. high. flat. lots of spin.

still with ZERO aces to my name, i've hit metal, and splashed chains with this shot more times than i can remember. yet i can hardly make the hole on the right, that most everyone else hits almost flawlessly, including my wife and my buddy's 8 year old son.
