Tough hole.
Have parred it.
Another for the "easy as" list :-)


Up there with the best courses I’ve ever played. Admittedly the conditions were benign and I cracked 80, but geez it was in good nick and no two holes the same. Superb track.

Played it.

Birdie.

Just sayin.....

 

In a pure case of one-upmanship and outright bragging - I eagled it with a drive and sand iron to 12' back in the persimmon woods and when I could play days. 

 

It did help to have a 30mph wind assist though. :D

Given that I didn't make it over the hill with the drive...I was fairly satisfied.

A damn good effort then, I say.

 

Played it plenty of times when you had to almost hit along the ground to get over that hill into the wind.

Hitting your drive down the 7th isn't a bad play when it's into the wind.

Someone from our group did that.   7th was out of play coming back the other way.

3rd hole Par 5 at the tasmania golf club  that runs around a cliff face  the big hitters can take advantage while the short hitters have to take the long road to the green

Not sure if it rates as spectacular, but I thought the 5th at Kooralbyn was an eye-opener when I first played it back in '79, and it still gets you thinking even now.
