Played this hole on Monday 11/11 w/Dog, Mr. Crowley and Joseph (Good thing there was not a Wedding party up on the top level, where the Dog's good drive ended up, who knows?)
First problem is the tee (sight line issue) is aiming at the 7th green and proximity to #8's basket.
Second problem is the steeply, sloping hill which I my drive landed on, it is quite treacherous.
Third issue is lack of a true fairway, it is more of a luck way.
Since only doubles and not weekend events (where a slight chance, if any, of someone visiting the top tier) occur at Ellison.
I propose using a tee (a gap exists), just before the old tee, by just throwing down a couple of flags (for doubles) and playing over the flat upper tier ( I know, no fly overs, who is to know?) .
This new fairway would be improved greatly by simply removing a few saplings on the slope before the green.
Disc-gracefully - 304
