We're now down to only two days left of Design-a-Hole finalists to be revealed for 2019. One of which will become a playable hole in Golden Tee 2019. This winner will also receive their very own Golden Tee Home Edition. 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 social channels. 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 "Rivers Entrance" from Nicholas Noftz. Click the image to enlarge and see the description below.
This hole looks very inconspicuous from the tee box.
To guarantee your birdie it isn’t a difficult hole as long as your play away from the water. Just hit it away from the water and you will be dry.
To get your eagle in this par 4 you need to get an aggressive curve to stay dry on the green but not too much where you end up in the forest on the other side of the river, or the water itself.
If you give it an aggressive high loft attack at the green with some backspin it can hit low on the green and still stay dry.
That green has a massive slope towards the lake side and the end of the green where if you land with too much power you will bounce and roll off.
