basket strategy

Diamond X Black 18

Diamond X Black #18. The shorter of 2 top-of-the-world shots at Diamond X, this is a par 3. Tee is on edge of cliff, so watch your footing. Wind on the cliff face and the valley will differ. I use a firebird on an intense downhill line.

Basket Strategy: Hole 2 Lunchtime

My thoughts on playing Hole 2 at Lunchtime DCG in Portland, Oregon.

This hole plays across a fairly steep hillside with the uphill on your right. The tee is at the bottom and the shot requires you to gain roughly 40ft of elevation to reach the baskets. There is an OB road long left at the bottom of the hill, that usually only comes into play from long skipping hyzers or horrible rollouts. There is also an OB parking lot over the crest of the hill, but you should never be shanking that hard.

Basket Strategy: Hole 1 Lunchtime

flight path for hole 1 at lunchtime

My thoughts on playing Hole 1 at Lunchtime DCG in Portland, Oregon.

This is one of the shorter holes on the course, but also one of the most variable because of the wind, OB, and rollaway green. There is OB parking lot along the beginning of the right side and OB long left across a fence line, making for a tight early fairway. This hole usually has a strong headwind blowing up the face of the hill.
