Hole #11:  This is a 410 ft par 4 hole.  It's a very narrow fairway that resembles two turnover shots connected together with a small landing area.  So my advice is to throw a turnover/sidearm to the first landing area, and then another one to the pin.  It's a simple strategy that gives me a putt for 3 about 90% of the time.

Lots of people try to throw a flex shot with a driver off the tee.  The reward is not worth the risk for a shot like that in my opinion.  Even if you execute that very difficult shot perfectly, all you've done is made your upshot a little easier for the same score.  There's a better probability of making two good mid range shots than one very challenging flex shot with a driver.

Hole #16: Just assume you are going to hit a tree.  That said, your best bet is to throw low so that when you do hit a tree, it doesn't kick off too far.

I have seen some people throw forehand rollers on 17. I was thinking it was a bit risky with all the stuff on the ground (branches, etc). You think that's worth a try? Or should I just be able to throw a disc that long and straight most of the time?

Personally, I only use a forehand roller if there is no air shot available because I think the ground is less predictable than the air. An exception to this would be if you think your forehand roller has a better chance of getting lucky than an air shot.  If the rough is thick on both sides, like #17, your air shot actually has a better chance of getting lucky.  So I'd say throw an air shot, and just concentrate on hitting that first gap. This is a good hole to practice your hyzer flip fly straight shot. Anything else will turn too much towards the end.

Learn to throw sidearm laugh

Vandemark is the only person I've ever seen throw a clean backhand shot there.  It was a flippy roc that he threw with hyzer, and then it turned over and flew like a sidearm for the rest of the way.

Or you can just play it for a 3, and throw a mid range or putter far enough to get a look at the basket for an upshot.

glad im on the righ track, Ive been throwing it sidearm alot now.  Unfortunately the fairway is a little wider to the left side than the right.  So you have a much more obstructed view of the basket if you land in the trees to the right.

Thanks dan I know you have really thought your way through this course
