Here are some early screenshots of the course!  Here is the official preview of the new 2020 Kansas course.

In America’s heartland sits a golf course from another era—a place where a forgotten time blends together with state-of-the-art course design to create a Golden Tee course unlike any crafted before it. It is the Kansas you’ve never seen or known: majestic farmland that provides an unmistakable openness, breeding shot-making of the utmost kind.

Barns, cattle and the always-feared dusty dirt have a home on Dodge City, which antique obstacles, while sparse and selectively scattered about, will call upon every club in your bag. Although the course is tough to locate on a map, you’ll know when you’re there.

Here is a 6-hole preview and discussion from the Golden Tee lounge!  And here are the next 6 holes.

GT Par is most commonly -xx to -yy here, with the dependent setups on #a and #b.

Here are some early screenshots of the course!  Here is the official preview of the new 2020 Wyoming course.

The cell phone coverage is spotty, and in some places, nonexistent. But the views at Grand Tetons are perhaps the most vibrant Golden Tee has ever known—a place where the joys of fall golf can be celebrated and appreciated all year long. Snow capped mountains serve as the backdrop for this Wyoming-based course, which feels more like a trek into a wilderness than a round of golf.

There is something special about getting lost out here, where familiar golf elements seem amplified. And the surrounding mountains will provide quality scenes along with plenty of drops and climbs that will have a say on your scorecard, one way or another.

Here are some early screenshots of the course!  Here is the official preview of the new 2020 Ohio course.

Everything about this course oozes elegance. The greens and fairways are meticulously manicured on this Ohio-based gem. The bunkers, and there are many, feel more like artwork than golf course inconveniences.

And the hole design, from the subtle elevation changes that provide a silent punch to an unmistakable drivable par-5 that might just be the most thought-provoking hole in recent years, is immaculate. Everything about the course screams championship golf. Only it doesn’t scream it; such emotions are not tolerated on Oakwood Hills, a place where your virtual-golfing dreams can come true.

Here is a 6-hole preview and discussion from the Golden Tee lounge!  And here are the next 6 holes.  Finally, Adam Kramer takes you through a full 18-hole round here, talking 2020 updates.

Here are some early screenshots of the course!  Here is the official preview of the new 2020 Jamaican course.

Tucked away on the Caribbean coastline, surrounded by electric blue water and swaying palm trees, is a lavish resort with all the amenities one seeks out while searching for paradise. The greatest of which, however, is the 18-hole masterpiece that weaves in and out of luxury hotels and popular tiki bars.

Jamaica Bay is the kind of bucket-list golfing experience most hope to play just once their life: a beautiful, rugged, sun-drenched layout that puts golfers in a trance while testing them on every shot. For those who seek out destination golf, this will be their nirvana.

Lake Powell — Golden Tee 2020

Here are some early screenshots of the course!  Here is the official preview of the new 2020 Utah course.

Each year it serves as destination for millions of vacationers. But in Golden Tee 2020, Lake Powell has been transformed into one of the most geographically vivid golf courses in the game’s 31-year-history.

Bright red and orange canyon walls line the fairways and greens, producing chaotic and unpredictable outcomes for wayward shots. But it’s the presence of water—a plethora of deep blue streams, rivers and lakes—that serve as companions to these rock walls that make this Utah stop a destination that must be seen and played to be appreciated.

Oakwood Hills — Hole #1: Par 4

This green is sometimes drivable…watch this big C3 driver find the hole!  Good looks might call for you to try for it anyway to give you a chance at a chip in.

Here’s an opening hole-out with the 7-wood.



Oakwood Hills — Hole #2: Par 4

This 3-wood uses the hill to help spin into a front pin.

And here’s a nice driver over the water to a right pin.

Oakwood Hills — Hole #6: Par 4

This par 4 is not always drivable, as there are boxes quite a ways back where a headwind would force you to lay up.  However, a tailwind helped carry this high-teed driver to a back pin.

From a bit closer into a headwind, here’s a high-teed driver that carries to a back pin.

If driving the green is questionable, you can always aim for the sand, or just right of the green.  You might get a decent chip from there or you could even still carry on and in!

Here’s a 6-wood ace.



Oakwood Hills — Hole #8: Par 5

By • Category: Oakwood Hills • • Leave a Comment (0)

I’ll say this par 5 is always drivable, but it can be hard to stick the green with a tailwind, given you have to make sure you carry the cliff to make the green!  Distance control with come with experience, where you hammer the least club you can hit for more height to try to settle.  But mishits will leave you short and wet!

Here is the ideal setup…a back pin with a manageable distance and a headwind to knock down a high-teed 3-wood for the ace!
