Not used to that.
I went with some friends of mine to hit up Highland park in Baton Rouge. Im from Lafayette, La, Which is about an hour west of Baton Rouge. We have 4 courses here, Well 1 with 9 holes..No one really plays that one. Acadiana park has 36 holes, lots of woods..Thats my main course that i play around 3 times a week. And theres another a couple miles from here....Course is still being layed out. Supposed to have some longer holes.
Anywho. My main course is a lot of shots under 300 feet. Some in the open fields get a little longer,... 290-330 range, but the woods is incorporated in nearly all the holes. Theres the Ace Course, 18 holes in the woods where the longest hole is prolly 270ft, and then the Duzee which has 18 holes that are a little longer. So im used to a little bit of power game, But mostly a fair amount of control and accuracy shots. IN order to hit most of the tunnels of trees you have to have some self control, and know what parts of the woods you can actually shoot in where your disc wont get caught up and keep moving straight.
Well hit up Highland park sunday. MAN such a different course. Hills galore, and TONS of open fields with bits of trees. I really didn't do too well. Wasnt trying to nail a lotta shots tho, But i just messed around getting a feel for some of the holes. Hole 4 was a ..i dont remember if it was a 500 Ft or 590 Foot hole. I wanna say it was 590. Took me 4 throws to get a 20 foot put to the basket. 5th shot was my putt and i missed cuz the pin is between 3 big trees and i hit one. I didn't do well on those 400+ holes cuz Im not too experienced with rollers. At our course there really isn't any holes that you need to pull a roller off on.
Our longest hole is 507 feet, and a long drive, and a decent vicinity putt will get you a simple par.
But DAMN. I throw around 300 foot maxed out. I think my distance isnt really that far and hasnt developed into the kind of distance i need to make birdies at that other park because for 4-5 years im used to finesse shots not longer than 280 in the woods. Its weird to see another side of the spectrum. But I definately wanna hit that park up again sometime soon. Just dont like how the holes werent very defined like at my park. Tee Box was just a PVC pipe and the distance on it. Couldnt tell where the pin was unless my buddy from Baton Rouge that was with us pointed it out cuz half were behind bushes and trees.
Never the less...I'll be trying to improve that part of my game sometime soon.
Just thought Id share
