I thought 8 was a random hole until I saw some guy just pitch a forehand shot about 200 feet down the fairway and off to the right. From there there is a 200 foot straight shot to set up a putt. I did that during the round throwing an anny and got a 3. Another guy in my group did the same thing but did not execute the straight shot. So that becomes one of those holes where you can break it down and settle for a good score, or just chuck it and pray.
I thought 18 was a fine hole. The grassy fairway eliminated a lot of the luck of the bad skip. I did not know that completely over the creek was in bounds on 18 and 8. A spotter picking up a disc would not cost the player any throws. Under the rules he gets to play the disc where it landed. Not knowing the rules might have cost the player some throws.
And I was not complaining about #10 because I had a bad score there. I missed a short putt for 3. It just seemed that of the 20 or so players I saw throw that hole, the results were random. I saw weak players get lucky and very good players get very unlucky. After 108 holes of disc golf the luck evens out. I suppose one dumb luck hole tests a player's mental game.
