Golf endorsement question

Joseph Miller <radiodxer2000@...>

This is probably in the rules somewhere, but maybe others would like to know the answer as well, so I ask:
I just worked a ham giving his call as ZZ9ZZZ/MM (fictional) and his location as the Indian Ocean, Grid Locator MH40.
My question, even though he is not on land, does this contact still count for Hole 11 for the Golf endorsement?
From my home, Holes 11 and 17 will most likely be my two toughest ones to work.
