Welcome to the Course Caddy, a look at each and every hole in Golden Tee 2014. Over the next few months, we will spend each day looking at a different design, starting with Hole 1 on the first course and ending with the final hole on the final design.
We want—no, NEED—your help in this process!
How do you play a particular design? Share your thoughts on strategy and YouTube uploads in the comment section. Your feedback is integral in the complete understanding of the design.
All holes will then be available for reference on the Course Caddy page—a bookmark must for the entire encyclopedia! Enjoy.
Greek Hills Hole No. 6
It’s good to have options, and you have them here. After dealing with the challenging Hole 5, things aren’t nearly as turbulent on Greek Hills No. 6. This two-shot par-4 gives you two different paths to take, although there’s even more than that.
The hole consists of water and some well-placed trees. Take note of these and stay far, far away. The rest, however, is pretty straightforward.
If you decide to go left, you’ll be left with a longer shot. Be sure to stay short of the bunker and try to avoid getting up close and personal with the trees placed in the middle of the marsh in the middle. From here, though, the shot won’t be all that taxing.
Adjust your approach based on where the pin is, and you can get very close to (or even in) the cup.
Want to go a different way? Let’s do it.
Going right is an option as well.
From the right fairway, you must be mindful of the tall trees guarding the path, although a 9-wood will fly well over. It may take some distance control management, but the shot will be closer and is certainly doable.
Our friend here proves that.
Want yet another way to play? Certainly.
Hitting the ball beyond the fairway and into the rough is also a place many players like to end up. From here, you’ll have an even shorter shot to the hole although your spin—because you’re hitting out of a deeper surface—will be far less. This strategy is far less attractive if the pin placement is up, although it’s a workable option if your shot is allowed to release.
Yes, you have choices to make. Regardless of what path you take, however, be sure to avoid the water at all costs. Play smart, play for a short birdie putt, and let’s move to the next hole.
