And so we continue onward with our Design-a-Hole finalists, jumping from one driveable par-4 to another.
But before we get to our second of 10 Design-a-Hole finalists—actual golf holes that were submitted by fans of this game—let’s go over the process.
One of the 10 designs that will be showcased over the course of 10 days—Monday thru Friday over the next two weeks—will become a playable hole in Golden Tee 2018. This winner will also receive their very own Golden Tee Home Edition and the opportunity to design their own Freaky Friday course. The stakes are high for those still left, and now they (well, we) need your help.
We want you to post your feedback on all finalists on the Golden Tee Facebook and Twitter pages. What do you like about a design? What do you love? What would you do differently?
While course designer Jim Zielinski will ultimately have the final say, we will take all feedback and use it in one final judges meeting to determine a top three and eventually a winner. So let’s proceed with our second finalist.
Here is "Fortunate One," a driveable par-4 from Patrick Norris. Click the image to enlarge and be sure to read the description below.
"Fortunate One" is a driveable Par 4, IF you're fortunate enough to squeak it through the tight tree cluster at the end of Tee Box One! This one also has 2 wicked bunkers placed 2/3rds the way down the fairway, and right in front of the Green! OUCH! I also thought this would be a good one to blast a high tee C3 or A1 from Boxes 3 & 4, narrowly missing the trees! Could be fun for the pros, and a for sure birdie hole for the average player like me. I like the risk/reward factor of this hole because it really makes you think what you want to do off the tee. I didn't see too deep of bunkers around the green, as that would greatly inhibit people going for the green in one.
