Really solid design. Reminds me a lot of a country club in the town I grew up in back in East Texas, minus a few southern pine trees. I liked the walking and cart paths routed through the course. The flowers in the undergrowth around the base of a lot of the trees was a nice touch. I enjoyed the grassy bunkers... easier to recover from for sure. As more courses like this are released, I can just see my entry falling in the standings. Kinda like when I play a DAM event at 3am PST on Saturday, and finish in first place as the only person to have completed rounds. Then, Sunday morning... bottom of the barrel. Seriously though, great job on this publish sir!

Thank you for the feedback so far! The goal was to create a realistic fictional course, and that seems to have taken root in the feedback so far. Appreciate any who have played so far, and please leave feedback here or in a DM.
Nice work here. Course has a nice, clean and natural looking aesthetic. You certainly succeeded in creating some nice natural looking features....and a solid, very playable golf course. I thought you had a well put together mix of tougher and not so tough holes, but overall the course definitely leans more on the hospitable side. I stayed away from them throughout, but the now hairy ex bunker pits were an interesting touch.
Any criticisms I'd have would be fairly minor, so I wouldnt bother to mention.
This course will get the plays. It will be the first leg of Xbox Friday Night this week. Tee off around 6pmEst. Twitch links will be in the shout box and I will post VOD links here as well. Well done sir, good luck in the contest. Liked the two pars 3's early....unique.

I caught some of the stream live, and then went back and watched what I missed. Thanks again for choosing my course. Seems like the course showed well, and by design I am happy with the comment that seems to be coming the most which is, "No frills, but everything is just so well done." I shot for a realistic/fantasy model, and it seems that is coming across when people give the course a play.
Once again, thanks to the XBOX Friday Night Alternate Shot crew for the play.
Do you have any plans to port this course to 2k21? The quick review in my course data notes is: "Very challenging and beautiful course. Plays fair with no gimmicks." I would love to play it with all the new eye candy in 2k21.

Doyley: We'll obviously be holding off on any next season talk until after the info is out on 22nd - we can make a plan of attack after we find out if it's a release day or a release date (in the future)

theclv24: I figured it might be interesting to a few folks here, and I Ihaven't gotten huge turnout on the raffles so a $10 gives you a decent chance to win.

Bear: No, it's not. There might -- and I stress might -- be some kind of announcement next week. Edit to say I missed the word "info" xD
