A traditional cup measures 4.25 inches. The golf ball 1.68 inches.
Just ask Dustin Johnson, there’s not a lot of room for error.
Falmouth Country Club in East Falmouth, MA is here to help ease the pain of missed putts with the introduction of Big Cups to its popular nine-hole Talon Course. Measuring 15 inches, the new set of holes are making the game more fun for beginners and advanced players alike. Cut into the green alongside traditional cups, golfers have the option to play to either hole.
“We’ve had some members that have come and booked a tee time just to play a round with the big cups,” says Matt Burgess, General Manager at Falmouth Country Club. “Golf’s supposed to be fun, and this is thinking outside of the box, to appeal to more people.”
In addition to added enjoyment, Big Cups are speeding up pace of play.
“Seven footers, they’re pretty much gimmies,” says Burgess. “It speeds up the game quite a bit. They say that the average round, played with these sized holes, is about 45-minutes faster.”
Falmouth is currently the only course on Cape Cod to feature Big Cups.
