With the introduction of the 2008 courses, in particular the course Summit Lakes Country Club, you can land your ball on ice or snow! Hitting off ice is similar to hitting off pavement or rocks (see “Other Various Lies“), but snow is a bit different.

First, if you’re unfortunate enough to land in the snow in Golden Tee, you’ll notice the ball just stick and get buried. That’s realistic, so kudos to Golden Tee for capturing that. There’s no roll to be had through the snow…wherever it lands, it stays, thus costing you distance. So, a good tip to consider when flirting with the snow is whether or not you’ll be able to get to the green in your next shot if you do land there. In most cases, you won’t be able to advance the ball very far.

Snow really seems to take a lot of distance off the shot, and it should. Be prepared to get only about 50% distance on your next shot if you plop one in the snow!

It is possible to slowly roll the ball into the snow and have it sit up more, similar to sand. I had a ball roll down a hill into snow, and I ended up with a decent lie. It’s best to assume that your ball will end up buried though if you plan on flirting with the snow in Golden Tee!
