I had a pretty late start to most of you guys, and by the looks of it, I will be lucky to break the top 50. However, this is only my third design in the TGC series, and my second was actually put on pause while I devoted all my design time to this course. For the most part it is complete. I have to do a lot of playtesting and finish up some final detail work. I feel the my skills are improving slowly, but I have only been using this designer for about two months. Maybe next year I'll be able to actually give you guys some competition!
15eicheltower9 - You'll probably do great in the competition. I'm still really new to this game/community, and I'm sure the more advanced designers could pick apart my courses pretty quickly.
Lifeonaboard - Thank you sir! I doubt eye-candy will get me very far in the competition, but I enjoy pretty stuff to look at because my scorecard usually isn't pretty.
cathalos1991 - I'm trying to get better at planting. Guys like Terry Grayson, Eric Lane, Matt Fritsch, and Andre Quenneville make my planting look like a joke. Yep... if I get in the top 50... I'll mark it up as a win!
Pretty much completed. Just waiting for the publish window to open to officially publish the course. I will post the individual hole cards on the final completed thread after publishing. Below is the course card shows how the course was designed. Black tees were designed for Masters Clubs, Blue for Pro, and Red for Beginners in order to bring the same tee shot options/hazards into play for each club set, but still playable for any club set on any tee. The preview shots above have changed in the final version, but I'll leave them as is for now.
I still feel that I will be fighting for second to last place in this competition based on the field of designers, but it's cool to be a part of.

alejandroacantilado: the PGA is doing a great job of setup, and I think the USGA could really learn from them. The bunkers, the decision to not cut the greens when the wind is up. They have to remember that when they go back to Shinnecock in a few years...
