Grand Canyon — Hole #13: Par 4

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Grand Canyon

This is the hole that seems to define your round.  The risk/reward is more evident here than anywhere.  It requires a precise A1-type curve around this mountain with exact distance to hold this green and give yourself an eagle putt.  If you miss in any direction, you risk the chance of a re-tee, which is […]



Grand Canyon — Hole #14: Par 4

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Grand Canyon

If you get the front left box, you can high-tee a 3-wood and play a small cut through the gap — here’s an ace from that box. From the middle box, this hole may be drivable — check out this high-teed 3-wood that nearly went in!  It takes a precise shot through this gap, but it […]



Grand Canyon — Hole #17: Par 3

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Grand Canyon

In beta, this hole did NOT have a sand trap in front.  If you played the Flares and had a strong wind in your face, you didn’t have much option other than stroke limit, so be thankful you now have somewhat of a bail-out spot! This hole alone makes me want to use Hawks to […]



Grand Canyon — Hole #18: Par 4

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Grand Canyon

Here you’ll be aiming straight through the small gap straight ahead, to the left of the green.  It’s too risk to try to cut it left to right — instead, shoot straight through and use the hill to the back left of the green to deflect back down onto the green.  There is water left […]



Dusty Bend — Hole #3: Par 3

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Dusty Bend

Don’t forget about the fence guarding the front of the green here — you absolutely cannot be short!  Make sure you have plenty of carry and use bite or backspin to hold the green.  Here is a nice use of bite from the back box. VIDEO DEMO



Dusty Bend — Hole #6: Par 5

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Dusty Bend

Distance off the tee shouldn’t be an issue here — anywhere right of the sand is fine for your approach.  You actually don’t want to hit too far off the tee and bring some of the brush into play just past the fairway, so lay back a bit from the end of that first fairway. […]



Dusty Bend — Hole #7: Par 3

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Dusty Bend

This one can be a bit tricky, so always play it safe.  The green basically has a front and back section, so play your tee shot to the middle of whatever section contains the pin.  Bite may be a good option here to get the ball to stick when it lands.  It’s often a 7-wood […]



Dusty Bend — Hole #8: Par 4

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Dusty Bend

This hole is tough to eagle, and an errant tee shot can turn your round in the wrong direction.  Everything slopes towards the water in the front right of the green, so you need to aim well left to avoid the water and a devastating re-tee.  Stay dry, and accept that birdie is a fine […]



Dusty Bend — Hole #12: Par 4

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Dusty Bend

This hole is fun — you’ll have all kinds of different shots here depending on your tee box and the wind.  The green is deceptively huge, so it’s important to get your shot close to the pin for a manageable putt. From the back left box, here is a high-teed 5-wood from the back left […]



Alpine Run — Hole #16: Par 5

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Alpine Run

Handicap: 6th hardest hole Category: Risk/Reward Average Score: -0.88 / -2.00 Eagle+ 21% Birdie 50% Par 26% Bogey 3% Double+ Here’s another par 5 that can be very difficult to reach in two. If you have a tough head wind, you will have to lay up short of the snow and fairway neck. From here […]



Dusty Bend — Hole #13: Par 5

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Dusty Bend

The safest play is something like a high-teed 4-wood to the left side of the left fairway.  This fairway slopes right, so don’t be careless and let one trickle into the water!  At the same time, there’s a semi-hidden building behind what you’re hitting over.  Sometimes it’s directly in your line.  If you play a […]



Dusty Bend — Hole #14: Par 4

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Dusty Bend

You will be aiming over the barn to get to the second fairway here.  A high-teed 3-wood clears the barn easily.  If the wind is in your face, high tee a driver and take it just right of the tree between the barn and the house to land safely in the fairway ahead.  Even if […]



Dusty Bend — Hole #16: Par 4

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Dusty Bend

Normally you’ll just hit your drive out to the right over the water and into the fairway.  Here’s a hole-out from the right side of the fairway after a nice drive.  If you go too far, you could find yourself in between clubs, so you may want to use backspin and lay back just over […]



Dusty Bend — Hole #18: Par 4

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Dusty Bend

A clever change from the beta version is the addition of a sign over the two buildings on your way to the green.  Now you have to think about elevation control.  Usually, you can take a 3-wood through the gap over the building and under the sign — a driver will not clear the building […]



Alpine Run — Hole #11: Par 4

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Alpine Run

Handicap: 9th hardest hole Category: Risk/Reward Average Score: -1.00 / -2.00 Eagle+ 37% Birdie 32% Par 27% Bogey 1% Double+ 2% Over the top is probably the more accurate option, but you still have to nail the distance to avoid danger. You can use a high-teed 4-wood or a high-teed 5-wood. Another option is cutting […]

Here is a description of this new course for Golden Tee 2011: “This links-style course is not completely devoid of trees, but the rolling fairways and deep bunkers will have players thinking more of the Scottish moors than the foothills of the Colorado Rockies.” Here is the official preview of the Redvale, Colorado course. This […]

Here is a description of this new course for Golden Tee 2011: “Set in the Bois de Boulogne near the Eiffel Tower, no one has ever played golf in Paris like this! Players who attempt to shave strokes by navigating the many shortcuts of this challenging layout will encounter water hazards and intricately cut sand […]



Timber Bay — Hole #2: Par 4

Handicap: 17th hardest hole Category: Moderate Average Score: -0.92 / -1.00 Eagle+ Birdie 91% Par 9% Bogey Double+ There are situations where this hole can be drivable, especially with the Air-Os, so don’t automatically lay up!

Handicap: 8th hardest hole Category: Risk/Reward Average Score: -1.08 / -2.00 Eagle+ 32% Birdie 47% Par 19% Bogey 1% Double+ For your tee shot, you can usually hit a high-teed 3-wood over the trees down to the landing area. Sometimes you’ll have to work it around the trees, but sometimes you can use a more […]

Handicap: 8th hardest hole Category: Risk/Reward Average Score: -0.91 / -2.00 Eagle+ 30% Birdie 46% Par 12% Bogey 8% Double+ 4% Here you’ll most likely have to tee high a driver and hit it hard so it has enough loft to reach the green on the fly. If you’re short, you can get plugged in […]



Timber Bay — Hole #14: Par 4

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Timber Bay

Handicap: 4th hardest hole Category: Difficult Average Score: -0.26 / -1.00 Eagle+ Birdie 50% Par 27% Bogey 22% Double+ 1% This is a difficult hole that forces you to make 2 great shots for birdie.  If you can get far enough down the fairway, you take the trees out of play — here’s an example […]



Timber Bay — Hole #16: Par 3

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Timber Bay

Handicap: 6th hardest hole Category: Difficult Average Score: -0.37 / -1.00 Eagle+ Birdie 67% Par 13% Bogey 12% Double+ 8% Man can this green cause some problems! You need to stick the pod containing the flag or else you won’t have a putt, and it’s short enough for wind to wreak some havoc. Here’s where […]

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Grizzly Flats

Handicap: 6th hardest hole Category: Professional Average Score: -0.70 / -2.00 Eagle+ 16% Birdie 50% Par 26% Bogey 5% Double+ 3% A high tee and the Air-O balls would be huge here to help you carry over the strip! Otherwise, it’s going to take a very fortunate tee box and wind to allow you to […]



Laurel Park — Hole #4: Par 5

By • Updated: Feb 25th, 2017 • Category: Laurel Park

This is a challenging par 5 early in the round, and your results depend on your tee shot.  Always check to see if you’ve got a chance to hit an A1 over to the second fairway, because this sets up an easy look! If that’s shut down for you, see if you think you can […]



Laurel Park — Hole #5: Par 4

By • Updated: Feb 25th, 2017 • Category: Laurel Park

The standard approach is probably to rotate left once of the green and play an A1-type shot around the corner, with something like a 3-wood. Another approach is to take aim at the flag and play a B1-type shot, like this. Or you can rotate left an extra time and play more of an A2-type […]
