Metacomet Now Playable on PGA Tour 2K21
The historic course is now playable on PGA Tour 2K21 courtesy of World Cup of Design competitor Mike Hamilton.
Metacomet closed at the end of September and has since seen all its furnishings and equipment auctioned off.
The building is expected to be torn down and the property will be developed.
Currently, the entire situation is caught up in politics, so it is unclear when anything more will happen.
As GolfNewsRI reported, Metacomet was not ranked among the top ten courses in the country to close in 2020.
Hamilton in World Cup of Design
As GolfNewsRI reported, Hamilton is getting set for the World Cup of Design for PGA Tour 2K21.
During the draw show, Hamilton was place in Group E with CSUgolfer60, digital bunny and Baby bull.
“None of the groups will be easy. This is definitely not the group of death though,’ Hamilton told GolfNewsRI following the draw.
The World Cup features the top 32 course designers in the world.
Designers have to build an 18-hole course from scratch, and it can not be a real course. They have from now until March 31 to finish the course.
The designers then post pictures of the progress and a story on the course, before it gets judged over the spring.
The World Cup begins on Saturday, January 2 with the draw show.
Hamilton figures that the World Champion won’t be determined until about May.
Hamilton is the defending Rhode Island Stroke Play Champion and the Kirkbrae Club Champion.
