This is it; your last Design-a-Hole finalist to be revealed for 2019. One of these 10 designs 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 "Dueling Rivers" from AJ Menotti. Click the image to enlarge and see the description below.
Dueling Rivers is a Par 5 with a few very different ways to go after an eagle. The hole features 2 rivers that will be “dueling” to earn the opportunity to ruin your round. The green is guarded by a few bunkers and the “east” river.
Requires a precise tee shot curved around trees to a small opening near the “east” river bank. For those skilled enough (or lucky enough) to hit and hold this landing spot, a long-ish but straight-ish approach shot between the trees remains, carrying the river to the green and a chance at eagle.
Requires a long, accurate drive into a very narrow “neck” in the fairway, guarded by the “west” river and a collection of bunkers. Even for those who are long enough and precise enough to make it into the neck of the fairway, a shaped shot around the trees will be needed to reach the green.
The long way around, requiring two longer and safe shots to set up a mid-short iron approach to the green and an easier birdie opportunity.
