It would be nearly impossible to do anyway unless you can perfect thinning it, even a stinger is going to be well above the fairway that continues sloping down. Some of the tees up there are 50 plus feet over the fairway and the drop is pretty much straight down. You're hitting balls off the side of a mountain. I can recall just a few holes that play uphill. The entire day all I could think about was these MEfree threads because it's funky up there. Nothing is "normal" golf. Everything from the insane elevation to the texture of the greens is odd.

I think this is a poorly designed hole. Can't tell from the pictures but is there a reason the fairway ends 250 yards from the tee? I suppose the architect wanted to tempt the better player to carry to the next fairway but it causes the average golfer to have to lay up. I would think that for me with the elevation and drop shot effect, a 3 hybrid that I normally hit 185 would be the best choice off the tee. The issue is the long second shot. I hope missed approaches aren't heavily penalized. Then again, it's a long par 4 for a mid to high-handicapper even with the elevation.
It doesn't seem like a great hole if everyone is hitting their second shots from 200-220 yards. I guess with the elevation and the second shot being downhill it takes off a decent amount of yardage but I'm not a fan or "target" golf. I don't hit it very far and even I would have to "lay up" from the black tees if I wanted to be in the fairway.
MEfree, if you hit it high and it lands soft, then try to fly something in the air 220-230. If the wind changes, then adjust what you need to hit.
