Welcome to the Design-a-Hole finals! After hours upon hours of dissection, our prestigious DAH judges have narrowed a group of nearly 150 down to 10. One of the 10 finalists will become a playable hole in Golden Tee 2017! But before we get there, we need your help.
Over the next 10 business days, we will reveal all 10 finalists—one per day—and open up the floor for commentary and feedback. What did you really like? Which design would you like to play most? What do you wish was different? These comments will ultimately help our judges narrow the 10 finalists down to three and ultimately pick a winner!
So, once again, you are a very important piece to this portion of the contest.
Without further delay, here is Finalist No. 5 (click to enlarge and be sure to read the description below):
Two Rivers Run Through It (Par-4) by Mark McGrath
Two Rivers Run Through It is a tricky par 4 that starts at the base of a mountain with two streams running down from a lake perched in between the mountain peaks. A large green slopes down to the pin placed just in front of the lake. From tee deck 1 you can play it safe and use your powerful drive to reach the edge of the mountains setting yourself up for either a curved shot to the green or a lay up before a straight shot to the pin. Alternatively, you could shoot to either the 100 or 225 yard marks and attempt to shoot through a mountain valley. Neither shot is easy, but the attempt from the 100 yard mark will set you up nicely next to the pin. If the wind is cooperating and you can move to the top left corner of tee deck 1, you may just have a shot at the green in one. From tee deck 2 you may get lucky and have a clear line of sight though the valley right to the pin. The shot will require exceptional aim as the valley is narrow but could potentially pay off with an eagle on this tricky par 4. Shooting from tee deck 3 will be much the same as shooting from tee deck 1 except there is no chance at a single shot to the green.
