You asked, and we listened! Starting February 1st, the ACGT will be implementing a new hole location system for golfers to better determine the hole location each day. Golfers will see a progressive Front, Middle, Back approach through the round. If the first hole position is in the front of the green, the second hole will be in the middle of the green, and the third hole will be in the back of the green. This process will be repeated again on hole #4 through the remainder of the course. Subsequently, if hole #1 is in the back of the green, #2 will be in the front, #3 will be in the middle. There will be a three day cycle – ‘A’, ‘B’ or ‘C’. Each golf cart will have a chart of the quadrant each hole is positioned based on the day. The laser links will continue to provide you exact yardages for the sharpshooters in the group!

Nothing about short feels good, whether it’s falling short or being shortchanged. If you’re falling short off your drive, you should be feeling both. It’s time to consider Nike’s Power Distance (PD) long golf ball. This high-velocity, low price ball could increase your ball speed by 3 mph and add 15 yards to your drive. And the best part, it probably costs less than what you’re hitting now!
Off the tee is where this ball performs it’s best. Nike chose to ignore the conventional high launch philosophy in favor of a lower trajectory that hits the ground hot. That means when your ball hits a fairway of normal or firmer conditions it takes off running for added distance.
Unfortunately, like most distance balls, this ball wasn’t designed for workability or stopping power. The low trajectory and low spin can make it challenging to hold a firm green. When using this ball it’s advisable to factor in extra roll on your chips, pitches and bunker shots.
Bottom line, this ball was made to add power, distance and value to your bag. For a brand-name ball that travels this far at this price, you’d be shorting yourself not to give it try. Pick up a sleeve of 4 at Brackenridge and see what makes this polybutadiene core golf ball so great!
