There is still time, although that time is shrinking. If you want to design your very own golf hole for Golden Tee 2017; if you want to win your very own Golden Tee Home Edition; if you want to become an integral part of Golden Tee history, you have until April 15 to do just that.
The 2017 Design-a-Hole Contest, sponsored by Callaway, is going on now. We are currently accepting submissions.
Submit one, submit many. Create and par-3, par-4 or par-5—the look, the feel, the name, everything—and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also mail your submissions to the following address.
200 Corporate Woods Parkway
Vernon Hills, IL, 60061
On April 16, the day after the submission period closes, we will gather in our super-secret Golden Tee bunker and the DAH judges will pick out finalists. From there, each finalist will be produced individually on Goldentee.com, and fans of the game will provide feedback. The judges will then take this feedback and dissect deeper until they have a winner.
That winner will watch their concept go to playable creation in a matter of months. The winner of this year’s contest will then be able to play their creation in Golden Tee 2017. The hole will have a sign, just like in years past, identifying it as theirs.
On top of that, this champion will receive their own Golden Tee Home Edition ($4,000 value) along with a year of online play on us. Just making the finals will come with perks, as we have teamed up with Callaway to give out some tremendous prizes. This includes Callaway Chrome Soft Golf Balls and a new XR 16 driver. We will also be awarding gift cards and t-shirts as well.

In the meantime, it’s time to get to work. Dust off those crayons or colored pencils. Fire up the PC. Get out a pencil and a piece of paper to create your masterpiece. You have until April 15.
