New golf challenge begins Saturday


Lake Shawnee hole number 2

Lake Shawnee hole number 2 by Nick Krug

Nine courses, nine of the toughest holes they have to offer and an entertaining mix of what I hope will be a few good shots and a handful of tips to help play them.

That’s the goal for our latest “Tee Off With Tait” promotion, which will feature yours truly trying to tackle some of the area’s best-known signature golf holes and prizes for your contribution to the fun.

Beginning Saturday, Aug. 3, and running each Saturday from then until the end, I’ll be heading out to a golf course in the area and will be tasked with playing what course officials believe is their best or most challenging hole.

You’ll see photos and videos of the hole and read about my adventure from tee to green. If I birdie the hole, that blog entry might be a little longer. But worry not. If I take an 8 on a hole, every last one of those shots, along with what I did to get there, will be included in the blog, as well.

First up: No. 2 at Topeka’s Lake Shawnee Golf Course, a 369-yard par 4 from the championship blue tees that features every kind of trouble and challenge you could imagine.

As you follow along with this "Tee Off With Tait" blog, be sure to enter each week for your chance to win free golf at that week's featured course.

Good luck Matt! And remember, there's a reason that golf is flog backwards ...
