This is Michael Polito's The Hammer par 4 with a distance of 410 yards.
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.

Let's get into it!
The tenth finalist Michael Polito's The Hammer Par 4 - 410 yards!
This majestic 410 yd. par 4 is nestled between a mountainous watershed valley by the Pacific Ocean. The tee box is elevated 100 degrees above the fairway, and from this vantage point, the hole design resembles a hammer. Risk averse players can hit a 3 wood to the 275 yd landing area, but watch out for the two large bunkers on the left. Risk prone players can try their luck driving the 7 degrees sloped, bunker surrounded green, but beware you must fly a rushing river to get there. Wind speed, direction, and pin placement will determine if roll or backspin is needed to hit the green. The name 'The Hammer' signifies the powerful 'Hammer Shot' needed to drive the green and the unique hole layout. Let the big dog eat!
