Well the golf purists can stick it in their ear. I love that hole.

The long narrow green is a favorite of mine...In fact you may see it in an upcoming release! (cough hole 4 cough)

This is a touch off topic as it deals with McKee and not this desert course. BUT it has to do with your technique(s)


On these two holes we can see the edge of the fairway and since it is desert you don't appear to have put down "rough".

When I lay down "rough" it gives me a distinct edge showing where it lies.

On your McKee course you have your fairway edge and then your "rough" seems to blend into the surrounding areas (and very nicely I add)

How do you do it?

I post the accompanying images which show what I mean.

there is no light rough and the heavy rough is VERY close to the base texture in highlands.

I thought as much. Is it the same or similar in other themes?

all themes except for desert and delta have similar heavy rough vs default heavy rough.

Countryside does not. There is a pretty big difference in places. It's kind of random.

true, but using a soft edge helps there, you can make it look natural with the right techniques

I made a par 4 hole using this technique and I must say, I like how it is going. Theme was Autumn.
