2025 Design-a-Hole Winner #5:
Death Knell by Alan Phillips
Alan takes home a prize pack including a Odyssey White Hot Versa Seven DB Putter & $100 GT Gift Card!
This hole is inspired by the 13th Hole at the Masters. Reimagined as an Ocean Hole. Instead of Pine Trees, it has talk rocks. A long par 5 with alternate tee boxes for different looks. Slated narrow Fairway, with steep sloping rough area to punish long shots. 7 Trees in the Rough to punish long shots. Elevations can be adjusted but the numbers are approximate elevations. The rocks near the green should be approx. the same level as the green with lucky bounce opportunities on to the green. Rocks closer to the tee should be taller. Green should slope downhill away from the player. The longest line drawn does not represent a real drivable shot but should measure 610. The shorter tee boxes should be more of an uphill look, whereas the longer ones should be flatter. The green is approx. 2’ above the water on a stone platform that has soil and grass added. Same for the tee boxes in the water. If possible, no fringes (1st cut) on the fairway (I think the course that houses this hole should have that as a featured design (no 1st Cut on Fairways). The style for the course should be New England Coast or Washington/Oregon Coast.
