Golf fans react to PARTY HOLE at LIV Golf Adelaide | Will it rival Phoenix Open?

The first shots of LIV Golf's new 'Party Hole' have been revealed by Ripper GC's Twitter account ahead of LIV Golf Adelaide.

LIV Golf Adelaide at Grange GC will mark the first-ever LIV Golf tournament that has been hosted in Australia, and according to reports, it's a sell out. 

There are expected to be 20,000 spectators on the ground each day. The tournament starts on Friday 21 April. 

While many of the home fans will be excited to see the all-Australian Ripper GC team in action, which comprises Open champion Cameron Smith, Marc Leishman, Matt Jones and Jediah Morgan, it's the Party Hole on the Par-3 12th that has delivered most hype.

The Party Hole on 12 is known as the 'Watering Hole', and it will feature live music and DJs, and plenty of beer! 

There is also said to be unlimited food and other forms of entertainment going on to keep punters going for the rest of the day. 

The hole is likely to play around 170 yards, so it will be a short to mid-iron for the players depending on the wind. 

Smith, the captain of Ripper GC, says he could not imagine any better country than his home of Australia to host a Party Hole: 

The tournament will also be a special week for LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman, who is also an Australian. 

The Party Hole is expected to have a very similar look and feel to that of the Stadium Hole Par-3 16th at the WM Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale on the PGA Tour. 

With a shotgun start in LIV Golf League tournaments, the 12th hole will be in immediate use from the very first tee shots from Friday to Sunday. 

Here's how a number of golf fans have reacted to the first shots of the Party Hole: 

LIV Golf Adelaide marks the fourth event of the 2023 LIV Golf League season, following on from events in Mexico, Tucson and Orlando. 

Charles Howell won the first, Danny Lee the second, and Brooks Koepka the third. 

Koepka became the first player in LIV Golf history to win twice on the circuit following his victory last season in Saudi Arabia.
