    Playing hole 9 at Gatlinburg Golf Course in Tennessee. It's an uphill par 5 with a road all the way down the left side and a pine tree line between that road and the cart path. The road has a curb on both sides and runs all the way down to the main road for the strip in Pigeon Forge which is crazy touristy. I hit my driver really well, but it is right on the tree line kind of where you can't tell if it's going to be ok or not. My next buddy gets ready to hit and takes his practice swing and sets to hit and here comes my ball rolling down the middle of the road to our left. Couldn't see it in time to stop it and this road has a lot of traffic. Anyway we all stopped and watched it go. Maybe 400 yards behind us the road sweeps left through a T stop and becomes a 4 lane and it rolled that direction. Given there were curbs all the way down it was going to end up somewhere interesting, but the last we saw it was about 700 yards or so behind where we were standing still rolling down the highway LOL!

    I watched a guy hit his 6i almost 350 yards.

    Par 3, uphill, 190.

    Hits his shot, pushes it right. There is one lone skinny tree out there in a sea of crap. Hits the tree, it goes back towards the green. Hits the cart path and takes a high bounce, comes down just green side of the cart path. Dribbles back to the cart path. Slowly works its way down the winding cart path to the ladies tees, about 10 yards in front of us.

    Took almost a minute for the complete shot.

    Another funny one was in my simulator.

    My SO hit her driver, it went hard right, hit the support pole, came right back and nailed her in the lady bits.

    She went down yelling "I got hit in the nuts!"

    Know the hole well. I wonder how many cars have been hit between holes 7-9. Probably not many on 8 but I guess it could happen.

    I was almost on the road near the green of #7 after my 2nd shot. People were driving by yelling at me the whole time. Even got a "nice shot"
    from the man sitting there when I played my shot. LOL!!!

    In a scramble last summer, the local semi-private course has some serious par 3's. One is a downhill 200 yarder to a tiny green (well its wide but shallow). There are some trees with landscaped areas underneath on the back side of the green which sit quite a bit above the surface of the green. We had two shots around the green, the last guy says "I wanna be sure I get one there" and pulls a 5 wood. I'm guessing it his 200 yard club but the green is 45 feet lower than the tee box. He hits a low screamer and no one really saw it come down.

    It was a hole-in-one contest hole and there were a couple of college kids acting as official spectators sitting off the side of the green. We get down there and surprisingly find two balls on the putting surface (mine was closest, we all missed the putt) but can't find the last guy's ball. We ask the kids if the saw anything? The girl says, "I feel like one flew into the trees behind the green...?" Ahh thanks... glad it didn't hit you in the skull since you paying such good attention.

    Anyways we look around a bit and gave up... playing the next hole which the fairway is 75 yards beyond the trees behind the last green and the guy finds his ball. It was straight up the hill so his tee shot on the par 3 must have hit one of the landscaping rocks and jettisoned into the fairway... probably traveled in the 280 yard range...
