Top 5 Best New Golf Courses from 2009

Just like every other industry, golf course development has suffered in 2009. With the downturn in the nation’s economy, golf course builders were more concerned with getting the course up and open rather than in recent years when new and challenging designs were the priority. This past year, 33 new public 18-hole courses have opened all over the country. Sure this number doesn’t sound too low, however compare it to the 398 courses that opened in 2000, and the number sounds minuscule!GOLF.com has compiled a list of the top 5 new public courses opened in 2009 and rates them on price, difficulty, and design.

Coming in at number 5 is the Wine Valley Golf Club located in Walla Walla Washington. It was designed and built by Dan Hixson and is favored for its long and large sand traps that complement the high wheatgrass surrounding the Blue Mountains. Number 4 on the list is the Ritz-Cartlon- Dove Mountain Course in Marana, Arizona. The Ritz is no stranger to hard courses however the sloping greens and the Wild Burro nine will make you work for it. Landing the number 3 spot is the Waldorf Astoria Golf Club in Orlando Florida and has what all good Florida golf courses have, a lot of sand. The challenging course was designed by Rees Jones. Number 2 on the list is the Sequoyah National Golf Club in Cherokee North Carolina. This is a Robert Trent Jones course is difficult based on its steep hills and abundant amount of trees. Lastly on the list coming in at Number 1 is the French Lick Resort in French Lick, Indiana. The course is a Pete Dye Course and the yardage is what will challenge the golfers. For example, a 301 yard par 3 hole, a 518 yard par 4, and a 657 yard par 5 back to back to back make this course one you won’t forget.

Hole In One Insurance Contests and Distance Requirements

At Foresite Sports, we get all kinds of questions on a regular basis. If you have any, please contact us. One of the most commonly asked questions is in regards to the yardage requirements for hole in one insurance contests. In order for a par 3 to be eligible for the golf contest, it needs to meet the minimum distance requirements. Each type of hole in one insurance contest has different requirements, though. There are also different requirements for men and women. Let’s take a closer look.

Hole in One Insurance Contests

This type of contest is centered on one hole, of your choosing. In this situation, the minimum yardage required is 150 yards for men and 135 yards for women. If the hole you have selected is not quite at these numbers, most golf courses do have about ten years of extra space on their par 3’s which means that you have the ability to set the hole up to include that extra ten yards. Just move the hole back. If you are taking advantage of the free bonus prizes for your additional par 3 holes then there are different minimum hole requirements for that. In this case, there is a minimum yardage requirement of 130 yards for men and 115 for women. This type of bonus prize includes items like the Callaway Big Bertha Irons or the roundtrip plane tickets for two.

Shootout Contests

For a shootout hole in one insurance contest, the yardage distance is a bit larger. This is because when you are conducting a shootout contest it is usually for a larger sum of money like $1,000,000. For men, the distance is 165 years and for the women it is 150 yards. Please also note that the shootout shot(s) do not need to occur on a par 3 hole.  You can simply set-up the shot at least 165 yards out from the hole on a par 4.  Many groups choose this option and place the shootout shot on the 9th or 18th hole because it allows those who are not taking the shot the ability to watch from the clubhouse or cocktail area.

If you have any additional questions regarding the yardage requirements for Hole in One Insurance or Shootout contest, please feel free to ask.

Also, we also do not charge you for the putting contest sign or the shipping of the sign as long as you get us the application 10 days prior to your event date.  Some other companies add fees onto their services for sending you the material you need. We also have a low price for our services which we match with a 110 percent low price guarantee. If you find a lower price we will beat it by 10 percent of the difference as long as it comes from a legitimate competitor.
