Want more plays/exposure for your course?  This might be of interest...

What I would like is as many designers as possible, experienced or otherwise to submit a three hole version of any one of their existing 9/18 hole courses.  To do this you simply load a published course into the GNCD, delete the holes you don't want to show (if not auto generated this won't affect the appearance) and then republish with no other changes.  This could be a recent or older course... 1 per person, with the intention of people being able to quickly try lots of different courses that they can easily decide to load up the full version of.  You can pick any holes but your course must be a serious course, and not a fully auto-generated one.

This should be ideal to get exposure for a course that has been overlooked or forgotten and hopefully result in some more plays.  Plus it should be fun to try out lots of different courses in a short space of time.

The finer details of how long the tour runs for, whether it becomes regular or not and when it starts will hinge on popularity.  I'll obviously wait until we get a decent number.  I may or may not add one of my own to the initial tour... will post like everyone else if I do.

Please post:
- Full course name
- 3 Hole course name (suggest we append [showcase] to end of course name)
- [Optional] details of course, including which holes you selected etc, original thread

Ideas for this are most welcome.  If you would or wouldn't play such a tour, or submit your course please say :)

First 3 tours are now live.  Look for the following in game: 3 Hole Showcase Tour #1 #2 or #3

A quick bump... looks likely this won't happen with current interest, which would be a shame as I think it would be a good way for some designers to get some exposure.  If you are interested but don't have time/don't want to put out another version of your course until you know this tour will at least be going ahead, then just comment on here that you would be interested.

I won't push the idea too much longer, just surprised at the lack of interest :).

To kick things off I'll put one of mine on, I'm a little undecided between University Links (which has plenty of plays as is on the suggested list, but prob has my 3 best completed holes) or Marazion (which also has some good ones)...  I'd like to put Tye Dunes (was part of HB Contest) on but the full 18 is not yet completed

Cheers, much appreciated :).  Just think this concept needs a bit of a push to get off the ground.

If I was wanting to learn as a designer and struggled to get more than a few plays on my whole course, I'd be happy for many more people to try just 3 holes and offer a little feedback on what they saw.  I imagine a lot of courses with only a few plays possibly had several more start the course but not finish, at least with this format most if not all that start will at least complete your 3 holes.

3 holes played > 3 screenshots viewed IMO

Anyone else want to add their course to the list?  My estimate is you'll definitely get 3 plays ;)

And yeah, I'm also surprised by the lack of interest considering how many designers complain about lack of plays and that they feel they don't get any attention. This is one of the best initiatives to counter that I've seen.

Mike Jones and a few top guys did this years ago, when there were pay to play courses. They would release three hole demo courses for free.

Now this is cretainly a good idea. I have no clue how i managed to overread your thread so long. For sure you'll have one of my courses for this.
"Correc Dels Parmos GC" as "Correc Dels Parmos GC [Showcase]" is published. I selected holes 6, 12 and 14. Have fun getting a small impression of the course.  ;)

Cool... I assume for a different game?  Given pay to play demo's would definitely be a good idea... still time is money so guess its a similar situation now ;)

Cheers Ursus, no rush.  I think 9 would be the magic number that would trigger me to go and setup the tour.  Of course if we get more by the time I go to set it up I'll include them all

Yes another game, sorry I should have said that. Its a good idea no matter the game though, with so many courses here to choose from.
