chadgolf I just imported 10 holes of another course to get a look at it and it seems like it's also all off in the same direction. I'm assuming that's just something you can use the shift function for? It's really important to get it just right for this one since the bunkers are a lot of simple shapes and I believe flat bottom stuff too. If Bing lines up perfectly almost every time and there are some slight inconsistencies across the OSM / LiDAR combo then I could just move the shapes around to match Bing before using your Tools to make the .course file.
The key is that it all has to be aligned to SOMETHING in OSM. Whether it's Bing or Digital Globe Shifted or even Mapbox but really shifted compared to Bing - every spline needs to be consistently positioned to all other splines. Typically this means either just choosing imagery and tracing it - or more complicated, shifting multiple maps to the same position, then tracing on those overlaid maps for more options.
As long as all the tracings are consistent with each other, then you can fix the fine shifting of EVERY SPLINE AT ONCE in the TGC tools with the fine adjust east/west and fine adjust north/south. No matter what you do in this step, you may need to have some fine adjust because the lidar itself could be offset from "truth" or "Bing", etc.

Ok, that makes sense. So before I start working on my next course I'm going to look at all the shapes really closely and move any around in OSM that might need to be moved, then reimport or something like that. Either way, the accurazy on Jasna will be a big step up from that of Engineers, so things are definitely improving here
