This one is going to take some time. Not the story, which won’t drag on too long. Promise.
But the hole we’re going to discuss—Juniper Falls No. 16, a glorious par-5—that is already showing us there is much to learn.
The makeup of this hole is relatively simple. Not easy, but straightforward. The par-5 has a natural increase in elevation, which is seen, in particular, by the gradual climb of the fairway. There are sand traps scattered throughout, which you best avoid.
And there is water near the green, which we never thought would come into play on the tee shot. No chance, right?
Well, thanks to the ramping physics in Golden Tee, that would appear to be wrong. We cannot encourage you to try this given the likely results, but we can’t NOT encourage you to try it, either.
Oh, there is more weirdness.
Despite the fact that there has not been a quality bank shot behind the green just yet—this is coming, by the way—we have seen this fairway serve as a productive boost.
Take this shot into the green, for example. We’re only scratching the surface on weirdness.
This is shaping up to be the most YouTube-able hole in 2017. Will we get a super albatross here?
Goodness we hope so. Stay tuned for many more moments of strange.
