The end is near. Soon you will see the entire batch of worthy Design-a-Hole submissions.
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.
Here is our seventh finalist, The Old Mill (Par-4) by Dave Rhoades. Click the image to enlarge and be sure to read the description below.
Welcome to The Old Mill, a short Par 4 located along the Pine Creek in Wildcat Den State Park. A very scenic hole with a small bridge crossing, a gazebo overlooking the creek and the star of the show, The Old Mill. This drivable Par 4 will test your shotmaking ability if you go for the green off the tee. A direct shot from the white tees is only 250yds but standing between you and the green is The Old Mill. A 3 story lumber mill that is powered by Pine Creek. It will be the biggest challenge because it will take a high lofted club and a lot of spin to keep the ball on the green. There's no shame in playing down the fairway and setting up a short shot back across the creek. Just don't drive the ball too far or you'll end up on a stone walkway that sits at the end of the fairway. Shots that don't go as planned could wind up on the beach across from the green, in the green side bunker, or most likely, in the water. The green slopes away from The Old Mill and is also guarded by a rocky hillside along the right.
