PIC is a really fun park DG course. Reach-out-and-grab-your-disc trees, 9 baskets are on hill side greens, elevated tees and water. Lot's of fun and worth the trip.

The longs are the best tees to play, but you can have some fun with a two disc round on the shorts (the shorts are great for newbies and families, which we saw many).

I played in a foursome and we finished the longs in under 2 hours. The front nine are all birdiable, but 4s and 5s are also possibilities because of the slippery greens and nasty green side trees. If 2m is in play scores might rise as well.

The back 9 is where it gets long (holes 11 and 18 are par 4s, and 14 and 17 are 3.5s) and OB starts to raise its scary head. Water shows up on 12 and you throw over it on 13. OB paths line the fairway of 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18.

Wind can also play a huge role in your round. I've played this park relying solely on a Firebird to drive and a Buzzz to putt. Extreme winds are not uncommon.

Ben and Geoff both used flicks to get good positioning. Andros threw a great reverse. I threw thumbers. One ended up parked

yeah maybe. I was trying an S-flick finesse shot with some success that skirts that first batch of trees on the right, then the second batch on the left. meh. There's a bigger hyzer flick that takes the left path. Thumber is too high for me. Maybe the ani meteor is the answer... hmmm.

I had good results there with an anhyzer Teebird. A beat-in leopard might also be a good choice.*

I was throwing my meteor at that left path you speak of and was getting to the green.
I do beleive the best way to that green is the big hyzer flick but its a tight gap.
Fun hole.

Don't hit early and avoid the shite on the right.

If you make it to the guard trees you are in for a solid-putt 2 or an easy 3.

It's almost a FM#1 Meteor throw.

What about 16? I had success with a flick but am thinking a thumber would be safer. Also, I made the mistake of looking at an arial view of the hole. Not a lot of real estate near the basket... Confused

That green is mucho small and surrounded by OB. The flick is scary so I've resorted to just throwing a Buzzz around to the right and around the guard trees. Not there for a birdie, but no going OB.
