I've seen people do bunkers with nice clean Fairway edges not that stupid skinny rough strip!  I'm doing a links inspired course and would love to do this.  How is it achieved?

So the only way is to spline a bunker in the Fairway?

Yes, splines are your only friend if you want a bunker that is in the middle of the fairway and no rough.

I typically create 2 or 3 points if creating a circular bunker. It's a little fidgety to get it how you want it.

Try placing a normal bunker inside it as well after you spline it,it gives the bunker a bit of depth automatic,if you don't sometimes when you publish the bunker can go very flat (about half size of spline).HB really need to look at bunkers going forward.

i use the measure tool round it,after i just move the bunker inside the trace.Still can't really get the look of a links bunker if its a normal size,but its the best fit at the moment good luck with course.

Wow!! I have all 18 holes plotted with splined bunkers, now I gotta go back and fix them all.

Publish a beta version (call it plot) and see how it goes before you do all the work,some go flat others don't just try it.

Thanks for the advise, will do. I was just wondering is there a big difference between spline and shaped bunkers or is it a question of taste. I do not see a difference in how they look, I just think you can be more creative with splines. Thoughts?

Well being a links fan,just perfer the splines so the ball runs into sand and not get stuck in the light rough round them.Only problem i feel in tgc 2019 compared to tgc2 is splines seem very flat,thats why i put a shape in them the land automatic lowers.,I think if the splines are in rough etc not so much of a problem.

Which course is that in your profile picture Yeltzman? That hole looks like one I'd love to play.
