It is time for the top ten finalists for the Golden Tee Design-a-Hole 2021 contest! We gave you the rules, theme, stakes, and the fans did not disappoint! We sifted through over 225 submissions of all sorts of creative holes. The Golden Tee community deserves a "golf clap" for their help and determination to create the newest hole for Golden Tee 2021! The holes ranged from eye-opening designs to some peculiar ones to even a par six!
The ten finalists have a range of holes that we know the players are going to love regardless of which one wins! Starting today and for the next ten days, we will showcase a new hole each day!
We want you to post your feedback on all finalists on the Golden Tee's social media 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.
You can also read all about how the Design-a-hole works, the prizes, which include a Golden Tee Home Edition & Callaway Golf Clubs, and more here.
Let's get into it!
The first finalist is Shawn Hitchcock's Zig-Zag's Par 5 - 644 yards!
This desert course hole looks like a mountain course with all of the trees, but plays very tough! It is a 644 yard par 5 that requires 2 unbelievable shots to get to the green if you can navigate around the fairway bunker that crosses the fairway at the halfway mark, or three 215-yard shots to get home for the average golden tee player. beware of some strategically placed fairway bunkers that will always get in your way and a tough green that slopes towards the green side bunker on the right side of the green.
