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.

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.

This post contains tips, tricks, and information related to the 2020 Golden Tee course Lake Powell! Check out the hole-by-hole breakdowns and example hole-outs as I partner up with the Golden Tee community to give you the edge you need to beat your friends!

Rare setups might make this hole drivable…there’s a gap in the mountains that allows you to curve through with a driver.  If you’re fairly confident with your accuracy, you may as well go for it anyway if you think you can get close enough for a chip.  Check out this huge A1 driver ace!  Here’s another with the Barrage balls coming in hot from 400+ yards.

Here’s a fairway dunk with the 8-iron.

There are two layup areas on the right edge of the fairway that you’ll normally play…experience will tell you which distance is best for your approach.  It’s great to have a lower-lofted club (2I/2H-3I/3H) in your bag for this downhill shot into the green, especially with a right-blowing wind.  Having to play a 6/7-wood into the green is much more difficult with tough winds.

From the farther end of the fairway, here’s a hole-out with the 2-iron.

From the spot farther back, this 6-wood uses a left-blowing wind to spin into the cup.

Normally this is a layup hole, but certain setups might tempt you to try to drive the green…as you’d expect, that’s very risky though!  Regardless, check out this amazing high-teed C3 driver that catches just the right bounce to find the hole!

Here’s a 5-wood ace to a back pin.

And here’s a driver that settles into a back pin.

Occasionally the backstop rock can be helpful…here’s a 4-wood that bounced back down and in.

Here’s another with a 5-wood.  And with a tough wind/slope, here’s a great 6-wood cut shot ace.

And here’s a driver ace.
