One of the most famous golf holes in the world is in Martin City—kinda. Tucked on an eight-acre parcel owned by a Martin City cybersecurity company, you’ll find a replica of Golden Bell, the twelfth hole at Augusta National Golf Club, home of the Masters. The one-hole course includes three sand traps, azaleas and a water hazard complete with two fake swans.
Gary Fish, the owner and CEO of cybersecurity company Fishtech Group, is a golfer. He said he chose to replicate the trickiest hole anywhere, part of Augusta’s “Amen Corner,” a set of three holes known for their difficulty.
The hole—like Augusta, is private and exclusive—sits in an area Fish calls Innovation Park, which also has a basketball court, walking trail and outdoor exercise equipment. The Golden Bell replica took about a year to create. The course itself has artificial grass, but natural grass and prairie grass surround it. It gets played plenty.
“Everyone in cybersecurity clocks in a lot of computer time,” Fish says. “I wanted to build a space where people could get out and unwind and get away from their desk. It’s quickly become one of the most popular amenities at our office for employees, clients and visitors.”
