For a bit of backstory see 3 Hole Showcase Tour

With the help of many other members of this great community, I have been putting together tours using 3 hole versions of existing courses. Some old, some new, some not quite released... and from experienced and novice designers alike. Whilst this has gone well we felt we could do a little more to engage more designers and more players...

The result is the 3 Hole Showcase Contest. Each tour will consist of 6 courses and there will be a vote so that people can vote for their favourite. Every 4 tours will be grouped together as a series with the full versions of the 4 winners going into the series final.  The tours will run for 4 weeks starting weekly on a Saturday night.

This is an evolving tour/contest, all input is most welcome :)

Rules/Suggestions
All:

  • Primarily, whether you are player, designer or both, don't take it too seriously and have fun
  • Feedback is encouraged, be polite, be supportive but be honest.
  • If you want to spread the word on any medium i will be very grateful

Players:

  • Top 10 scores across all platforms will be posted after the tour ends.
  • Lookout for the initial post on each tour for details on green speed and firmness.

Designers:

  • For a single series (4 weeks) limit of 1 course per designer.
  • Courses will be entered on a first come first served basis into the tours.
  • Designers may submit multiple courses but additional courses will be held until eligible.
  • Be open to feedback, it will all make you better if you are.
  • Defend your course but do so respectfully of other views :)
  • Don't be afraid to submit your course, whether you expect your course to win or not, it is most welcome on the tour.
  • Check out the second post for course submission form.

Guidelines for creating your 3 hole course
  • Take an existing 9/18 hole course and open in the GNCD (When opening a course file you can choose to select a 'Published' course from the filter
  • Pick the 3 best holes to represent your course
  • Now find a section of fairway on each of the holes you are not submitting and select the 'Delete Hole' option.
  • When all that remains is the 3 holes you have selected change the name so that it has 'showcase' appended to the end.  Note that you can use 3H, 3 holes. (showcase) or any variation, it doesn't matter.
  • Now publish your course and fill out the details in the second post to this thread by either copy and pasting the text or quoting it and editing the contents
  • If any of this needs clarification do not hesitate to contact me either on here or via PM

Anyone else want to put your courses forward? I hope the contest element isn't putting anyone off? It is only friendly competition, I don't intend to show publicly where each course placed, just which course won and with what percentage of the vote... Others can get their percentage via PM if wanted.

Anyone really not wanting to be on a tour with a vote attached, let me know on here or via PM and I'll make sure after each series we squeeze in a non contest tour should there be demand for such

For me, it's simply that I don't have anything new to present.  I'm only 6 holes into my newest one.  I've been taking my time with this one.  Probably won't be ready for another month.

No probs, I'm hoping I can get some new blood anyway. Wouldn't want anyone rushing. Thanks for the feedback though
