There is a narrow fairway to the right, but it isn't a clear shot - there are a fair number of trees. While it's safer, it is by no means a guaranteed 3.
It's a pretty well designed golf hole. Definately a risk/reward shot.
... and that overhanging tree appears to have suffered a little bit this winter and is maybe overhanging more than it used to be... I don't know, tho, as I've only played it the one time...
After my one round out there I came away feeling like it's a really great course, very enjoyable... the flow is excellent, the scenery couldn't be better, starts easy... finishes easy, but you must have faith in your discs and your skills or else you will suffer and end up in the water... before your throw (and #6 is a perfect example) you have to really believe that you will make it over the water, if you throw to weak and doubtful you'll lose your favorite disc...
