I've got 2, One of them I threw a Z wasp too high over the basket, into a ~10mph headwind, there was a thick pine branch extending 8' over the basket, my disc seemed stuck, but ~5 seconds later it falls out of the branch right into the basket. No chains. =)
My first ace was off of 3 trees pinball style with a disc I had never even thrown before. I had just found the disc earlier that round. It was a thrashed cobra and I sidearmed it. (I was 14) I didn't know any better and it went left HARD. Off of a tree 12 ft before the basket, off 2 more in quick succession, and *C*H*I*N*G*. I couldn't believe it. Neither could my buddy.
For mine Meilahti, Helsinki, Finland hole 11 S GM skip ace started flat faded and jumped up high at the right time hitting the pole without chains on the way in. Chains were rattled on the way from the pole to the basket side.
On a weird note: Not being able to see 3 aces of mine on the same hole old configuration Meilahti hole 5 70-80 degree spike hyzers downhill to a basket behind which the hill continues down. Before the basket there is a wide high area that protects the basket from straight shots. So spike hyzers clear the hill protection while offering some protection against bouncing far beyond the basket. Rhynos each time.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.
I have more blind aces (11) than than aces where I could see the basket (6).
I have an ace where I was throwing into a 20mph headwind with a super flippy Roc. The hole is off to the right, and I thought it was going to push the disc into the ground. It pushed it. Right into the basket. The wind was howling so loud that I never heard it, but the guy in front of me saw it go in.
I also have an Ace where I stuck the disk in the side of the bucket. Wouldn't have counted recently, but that was before the rule change, and it's on the list.

Nothing too exciting. Saw a skip off the ground-to-tree kick ace on hole 1 at Kaposia. Some random dude throwing a distance driver on a 280' hole, kicked off the tree on the left right into the basket...
years ago a buddy and myself were playing a round at carrol marty in ames, iowa in january. we were playing hole 6, a downhil tunnel shot and i threw a tomahawk with a 10x eagle, disc hit a patch of ice 2 feet in front of the bucket, taco'ed almost in half, and sprung up and over the basket and in, no chains at all.
another buddy of mine called a skip ace on hole 3 at carrol marty with a spider. we played 36 holes that day and he threw the same shot and chained out the second round.
I saw A friend of mine ace insanely on hole #7 of orchard park. A very short hole downhill, but kinda crazy in a mini golf kinda way. There is a bush that someone trimmed with a tunnel right through the middle of it, some trees with lots of branches hanging right over the basket, and the only way to the pin is RHFH anhyzer-RHBH or overhand. Every one shoots for the tunnel when not playing the league held there but no one makes it because the tunnel is like 4' diameter and also because the ceiling of the tunnel is way below the basket.
Soooooooo... My good friend throws an airbounce shot that hits the tunnel dead center then starts gaining altitude like crazy. OOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH.... Dang it starts turning way too far right. That disc is gonna be hard to find. Then outa nowhere SMACK-THUNKKKKKK.... C*H*I*N*G. Huge ricochet off of a big tree on the right and something else that I still can't figure out by the sound of it then buries itself in the heart of the chains.
My own, 255' shot, #11 Ham Lake, MN. 3 weeks into playing the game. Trees guard a straight line to the basket. Anyways I threw my Teebird on a lazer line right at it, it landed about 10 feet short, skipped off of and in between two small adjoined trees that are less then a foot apart. Smacked the chains dead nuts center. Still cant figure out how it got through that gap just right.
