Really excellent. This course plays well and there are a lot of well thought out holes in terms of angles. Played tips and pin 2. Since this is a beta I'll try and give as much critique as I can. I feel like the planting could be a little more consistent. A couple spots were clearly the circle planting grasses which looked a bit unnatural (between 5 and 6 where I noticed it most). I wouldn't mind the desert background being hidden a little more (especially on the approach on 2) the desert is a pretty stark contrast to terms with the rest of the course; don't mind it overall but it was pretty black and white there. The green on 8 is a little odd; the right half seems to be pretty much unusable. Would be dastardly to put a pin up on that tiny plateau. Loved 9 and the approach (really cool clubhouse). You had a couple mounds on the fairway which I like in terms of strategy; would love some more planting or elevation or something to make them pop (10 and a few previously). Green on 11 might need to be tamed a bit (left side is like all orange/red). More circle grasses on 12. No teebox on 14 lol - cool 3 shot par 5 though all of the shots made you think; think the sculpting up on to and around the green could be smoothed a bit though imo. Cool idea on 16 but I wouldn't mind a little more danger - missed left with no real penalty. Some planting around the views on 17. 18 a nice finisher. Overall nice hole strategy and great framing. Enjoyed the round and look forward to the finished product.
thanks for the feedback pizzastrangler, I appreciate the depth! definitely needs some polish in terms of planting/texturing and sculpting. my efforts to encourage ground game and shot shape left the greens you mentioned a bit *too* unruly for sure.
thanks again for your thoughts. I'm keeping an eye out for a beta of your rookie project.
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...

alejandroacantilado: man, too bad Hanse couldn't do anything about those cart paths.
