Somehow I missed this thread when it happened.

Not my home course, but I've played it quite a few times.

The left side is the straighter shot and makes this par 5 more reachable, but the left is narrower and uphill. The right is downhill and quite a bit more open. I usually don't pick a side - aim at the trees in the center and allow the golf gods to decide my route.
