Tundra Peak — Hole #5: Par 4

By • Updated: Jan 2nd, 2018 • Category: Tundra Peak

If you’re towards the back middle of the box, a high-teed 3-wood can take aim directly at a center pin and clear the mountain!  Keep this in mind as you line up your shot, because you may not have to curve it around. Otherwise, you’ll need to be accurate enough to curve your ball around […]



Tundra Peak — Hole #6: Par 4

By • Updated: Jan 2nd, 2018 • Category: Tundra Peak

Just lay back short of the sand for your approach shot — here’s an example hole-out.  Even if you do carry into the sand, you should still be able to loft a shot into the green.  And here’s a hole-out after a long drive out to the second part of the fairway. VIDEO DEMO



Tundra Peak — Hole #12: Par 3

By • Updated: Jan 2nd, 2018 • Category: Tundra Peak

Use your loft and carry over the ice to the green.  With a back-right pin, the icy mound can serve as a nice backstop!  You can also use the ice to help bounce forward if you end up short, although this one got lucky! Don’t have a high-lofted club?  Just run it into the mountain […]



Tundra Peak — Hole #13: Par 4

By • Updated: Jan 2nd, 2018 • Category: Tundra Peak

The safest play, and only play in my opinion, is to take your shot straight over the mountains ahead to get to the second part of the fairway — use a high tee if it will help you carry far enough. You can still lay back left for a longer approach shot — here’s a […]



Tundra Peak — Hole #15: Par 4

By • Updated: Apr 16th, 2017 • Category: Tundra Peak

It appears as if you’ll have to try to thread the gap between the two mountains if you want a shot at this green (3/4-wood with backspin is ideal) — and this is the best case with a left pin. But, in most cases, you can go over it — the problem may lie in getting the […]



Tundra Peak — Golden Tee 2012

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Tundra Peak

Here is a description of this new course for Golden Tee 2012: “Golden Tee at the top of the world. Literally. Mt Everest, Nepal is the home of the frigid gem that is Tundra Peak. Though mostly devoid of vegetation, the rocky cliffs, mountains, snow banks, and glaciers create a true golfing expedition new to […]



Tundra Peak — Hole #16: Par 5

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Tundra Peak

The island straight ahead is the common shortcut shot for an eagle chance but can be very tough to stick at times because it’s not completely flat, and backspin isn’t as effective in the frozen tundra.  It’s elevated too, so consider a high tee and/or hit it a bit more firmly. Here’s a solid tip […]



Tundra Peak — Hole #18: Par 4

By • Updated: Apr 3rd, 2017 • Category: Tundra Peak

The most common, and usually safest, shot is a high-teed 5-wood.  Since it slopes way back towards you and the green is frozen, it should settle, although you’ll almost always have a fun downhill putt to finish out!  This one was just played very nicely.  Medium-teed 5-woods also work sometimes.  Here’s a nice one that […]



Tundra Peak — Hole #17: Par 3

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Tundra Peak

Here’s a great hole-out to a tough back-left pin.  And this deflection is amazingly lucky! Also, there’s a little ice gully to the right that can be fun to rattle around in — check out this amazing shot!  Here’s another shot that got some crazy bounces before finding the cup.  Here’s yet another wild one! […]



Tundra Peak — Hole #14: Par 5

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Tundra Peak

Take a high-teed 3-wood straight over the snow mound on the left, aiming to land in the sliver of fairway heading down.  If you’re on point, you’ll roll on down to safety for your approach.  Here’s a hole-out after a mammoth drive. If you do head right or try a cut shot that catches the […]



Tundra Peak — Hole #11: Par 4

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Tundra Peak

With a great tee box and strong tailwind, you may be able to high-tee this one to the green! Otherwise, just lay up a ways short of the icy divide to give yourself a 7-wood or 9-wood loft shot up the hill on your approach.  Here’s an example hole-out. VIDEO DEMO



Tundra Peak — Hole #9: Par 4

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Tundra Peak

It’s all about distance control here — you’ll be shooting straight at this green with backspin or bite.  Here’s a great 4-wood dunk to a front pin, and here’s a perfect 3-wood hole-out to a back pin. VIDEO DEMO



Tundra Peak — Hole #8: Par 5

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Tundra Peak

You’ll always be aiming out left for the green patch in the mountains.  It’s a bit uphill, so you’ll need a little extra loft and distance — something like a high-teed 3-wood may work well.  If you are a bit short, though, you can often bounce up the ice and onto the patch, so aim […]



Tundra Peak — Hole #7: Par 3

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Tundra Peak

Similar to hole #3 but a different distance.  Again, it’s a ways downhill, so compensate a bit extra for the elevation and wind.  Here’s an example hole-out. VIDEO DEMO



Tundra Peak — Hole #4: Par 5

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Tundra Peak

The safest play is to the layup patch out to the right.  It’s usually a 4-5-wood to get there, almost always high-teed for extra elevation and distance.  There’s some snow short, so you absolutely must carry it there — bank off the ice on the back if you need to.  That should leave you with […]



Tundra Peak — Hole #3: Par 3

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Tundra Peak

It’s a ways downhill, so compensate a bit extra for the elevation and wind.  Here’s an example hole-out. VIDEO DEMO



Tundra Peak — Hole #2: Par 4

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Tundra Peak

With a great tee box and wind, you can get within chipping distance off the tee here, so keep that in mind for a better chance of a hole-out!  A C3 from the front left of the box is ideal. You can also ram a medium-teed driver with roll straight ahead and hope to catch […]



Tundra Peak — Hole #1: Par 4

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Tundra Peak

Enjoy one of the few flat holes on this course!  Lay up anywhere and bring it in for birdie.  Here’s an example hole-out. VIDEO DEMO



Tundra Peak — Hole #10: Par 4

By • Updated: Nov 6th, 2011 • Category: Tundra Peak

It doesn’t matter much which way you choose here, so let the wind decide for you — pick whatever side gives you the easiest approach shot with or against the wind.  A high tee may help your distance to be safe.  Here’s a hole-out from the left fairway, and here’s a hole-out from the right […]
