Beautiful course Han!  Really enjoyed it.  The tiers on some of the greens are something...  On 18 I was beside the green in two.  I hit a flop shot that hit the pin dead on near the bottom and it came backwards...and rolled...and caught the slope to the lower tier.  Ugh!  52 footer back for par that I missed by a couple inches.  Fun stuff!

If you've been around here much you know what i'll ask for now, right?  I'd love a protee version in the 6200-6400 yard range.  Ideally with the pins in flatter parts of the greens...although I think where you had them wasn't bad at all.  Any chance you'd be willing to do that?

ProTee version incoming !

I may need a break from doing this course for a few days but saying that all the other tees are in position so it should be quick enough to do, like you said I don't think any of the pins are in silly places anyway.

Looking at the scorecard it should play at 6449 off the yellows if that'll do you ?

P.S. there is a completed thread now too  ;)

I think 6449 will be fine for most of the guys.  It's a bit on the long side for me, but i'll still be looking forward to it.  Thanks Han - I look forward to it after your break.  You deserve it!

Cripes...I've had 3 putts from 10 feet on a couple courses.  Although I don't think I've had a 4 putt...

The greens can be a real challenge on this one, that's for sure.  I think it's another course where you need to learn the greens to play the right shots and get into the right positions or you can be in real trouble.

My review from the 3Hole Showcase Contest: Series 1 Tour 3

Han - TheBelfry - Brabazon ( Holes 9, 10 & 12 )
Forums: HB TGCT
Fairways: Medium Greens: Medium Firm, Fastest Speed


Much respect has to go to Han for this recreation. Much like Rod with Congressional he did not want to stop until it was as perfect as he could make it. The effort shows. Hole 10, which is the second of the showcase holes is one of my favourite holes in golf in part to heroics from Lee Westwood and Sergio Garcia in the Ryder Cup. It makes for one of the best TGC holes IMO, it is perfect risk reward that translates excellently to the virtual world.

Go out and play it if you haven't.
Full Courses:
Sandy Foot Links (TGCTLive Olympic Entry)
Royal Brumby
Tye Dunes II
Tye Dunes
Marazion Golf Club
University Links (TGCT 2015 Open Championship)
