First of all, my apologies if this post doesn’t quite fit under this category. Double apologies if this is a thing that exists out in the world, but I had an idea for a “course” that I think would be really cool. I’ll try to be as brief and concise as I can for everyone’s sake.
IDEA: A short game course that still maintains a regulation golf design, but only if the holes were cut off from 50 yards and in.
Why: Short game practice can be a little monotonous and unhelpful if you just practice the same shot on the range/practice area over and over with no new angles or greens, etc.
Concept: 18 holes (or however many you want to design on your property). Each hole is a par-2 or par-3 with a different realistic short game situation you’d encounter on a regulation course. For example, the first hole’s tee box could be in a bunker to a green sloping away from you. The second hole could be from a “fairway” 40 yards away that requires a pitch onto a biarritz green, and so on. No full shots really required so anyone technically could play it, but also an elevated practice experience for those who are there to grind on their games.
Thoughts? Is there something out there like this already?
