The Holes (for location, check the map on the other side of the booklet): 1. Monumental Failure Everything’s looks just great from the start, the air is calm, the birds are singing and no one is on the fairway… And after the third failed tee shot you’ll realize that the hole is not before of the statue, but behind it. Good start on the ‘Traditional? Forget it son…. 2. Shooting range From the hill again, but this time across a road, where a heavy pedestrian traffic is usual. If you will not aim like a pro, you will end in some beating by a wannabe drug dealer or an alcoholic Sunday-dad, who came to the park to see his bully-kids… 3. The real face of the district Are you familiar with used injectors, technocol filled plastic bags or empty drug pockets? Now you will! On this course your challenge is not the distance or the elevation, but to overcome your disgust filled nausea, while you try to put the ball to the hole from trash filled sand… Good luck! 4. Hill of the King This course is not for the hen-hearted. If you spin it across the hellish hill, you can watch back and check your timid opponents, who were not brave enough to swing jolly to get over the hill in one shot and needed least one more to get close to the trash-bin. Nevertheless, be careful, you can land on the worst nightmare of any golfer: between rocks, trees, holes and sand. 5. Hole: Ferryman’s Watch High spin? Pitch? Long shot? Forget all of them…The perfect tee shot is unknown yet for this hole, so bear the increasing laughter of your teammates with pride, while your ball is rolling back from the hill for the third time. Moreover, the bad news is that, the top of the hill is just the beginning, after that, you have to struggle with the fiercest shrubs of the ‘Traditional. Better to concede this hole to keep your dignity… 6. Hole: Promenade of the Weak This course is so easy that the serious players let the beginners to win on it. Just some straight, low swings and an easy drop, and there it is, you are on the hole. Piece of fucking cake. 7. Hole: The Second Ball in the Lake Are you ready to lose your second ball in the lake after your pathetic Ferryman try? So, you are! Every elements of this hole are designed to drive you crazy, never mind if you try to put a mile, or hit through the forest. Accept your fate and give up! 8. Hole: The shade of the Tradition This hole is just a fill before the nightmare. If you swing here badly, how will you on the last one? It is not that easy as It looks, no one can hit between the trees for the first time…
+1: The Ferryman Challenge – patchgiver challenge! Your legs are shaking, some quaint fog covers your mind, your hands are like two, dried wrench and you feel some awkward warmth in your pants. Yes, you peed in, because you realized that you have to sacrifice a ball on the altar of the Ferryman, the heaviest challenge yet on this fair city. After your ball will land miserably in the middle of the lake, just feel free to collapse and cry like a baby, you deserved it!
9. Hole: Tradition of the ’Traditional You put your spyglass in your gofbag? Without it, you can hardly see the hole of this classical, majestic course, the huge tree in the other end of the field. Some just go home before try to humiliate themselves on this hole. If you are not prepared, please do that too, the Tradition is not for Sunday Golfers, or light-minded amateurs. And please, give some respect!
