Planning on keeping going with the main contests, however I was thinking maybe it was time to run some specials one off events.

Looking for a seasoned designer(s) who can provide 3 hole samples of 6 of their courses. I will then put it into a tour and try to get a little chat going. I'll let the designer pick 1 picture for each course as well as the order if they wish. Welcome to provide a description. Can include past showcase courses but I'd like some others as well.

If all goes well I'll push out 1 per week. Post on here or PM. My preference would be to hold back the full list for PM so it can be announced when the tour drops.

I also have some other ideas, all are welcome... I like the idea of a fun version with dead unreleased projects where you have a great start but never have or will finish :)... I'm sure we all have plenty of half done courses
Full Courses:
Sandy Foot Links (TGCTLive Olympic Entry)

I find it hard to believe you don't have 6 good courses... However you are on a ban until you produce Wolfthorn... We are 2 down 2 to go with the first series, that is about 10 days until I need your course for the winners tour :-D

You may surprise yourself as to how good your early work is... You only need 3 from each. I'd quite like designers to include their first ever course as well as their latest to show progression but I'll leave that to them to decide.

I only have 5 courses total, unless I include the 2 9 holers I have :)

i may stay banned :D

im taking a long break from the designer,  going on vacation in a couple of weeks, for a couple of weeks.  can't get in the mood to do any work in there before then.  so a 6 week absence give or take a few days.

my apologies.
i will....

You are not only banned from tour, you are banned from the forums, your courses have been deleted from HBs database and next time you try to launch the game TGC will delete all your unpublished work too :-D

Looks like we have our first designer (Via PM... It will remain a mystery for now). You'd be welcome back anytime... But probably not another WIP :-D

Anyhow, now we have 2 excellent courses tied for the series 1 tour 1 trophy... I'll put up a poll for this in a bit. Either course would be worthy winners

Oh btw, any other designers wanting to put themselves forward for this let me know still... It doesn't hurt to have a few lined up

Do it Adam. You remind me that the one designer we did have to put one together didn't get back in the end. I've been thinking of doing one myself at some point

Cheers BoomBoom. As for the 6 courses, that is for one off designer specials. My thinking is that we include a 5 or 6 course tour featuring some of the more experienced designers as one offs both cos it will be fun but also as in an attempt to peak interest in the showcases. Would Iove you to do a special. Can be 6 best or can show your 'journey' from your first to latest or whatever. Up to you really.

Looks like Adam is getting in there first, but if you are interested, could you do a little write up about each and PM me when done. I'll then write a bit myself and post to HB and TGCT forums.

Would be good to get these going. Me and ErixonStone are pushing on with the regular showcase but as and when time/submissions permit :)
