Freshly published.   Imagine if someone took Augusta National, and dropped it into the Rocky Mountains near the Utah/Colorado border.   It is not a replica, but an aspiration to share the look, feel and beauty of the course.

Enjoy.

This is a terrific venue you have put together for this design Yeti. You say it's inspired by Augusta National, I would say you nailed that perfectly. This track certainly gives you that Augusta feeling no doubt. Very nice design my friend.....it's in my favorites and I'm definately playing this one again.   Great Job!!

Yet, i thought it was just a tad quieter..... ;) ..You definitely could see the Augusta influence, especially on 12..Amens Corner...Lots of folks will love this...rightly so..the Yeti style is still there..a little subdued but hey........Great job...

Played through 12 last night and finished the round this morning.  Didn't even realize the course was that long...wow.  Plays smooth and the greens were easy to read without the grids.  Shot a solid 79.  Magnolia Lane in the mountains.  I love it.  Well done sir. 

Cheers.  ;D

I really enjoyed my Round here Yeti, the course has a great feel to it and there were times it reminded me of a Augusta with the bunker work around the greens. Great Job!

This is a Par 72  7495 Yds  Greens Fast - Difficulty easy (for some) Winds light to med 5-11 Shot 74. Another in the last few I have played that are really nice designs. This looks very nice and yes has a lot of Magnolia National looks and play. Loved the fencing in this one too - makes the course looking like someone cares about their course. Has a very realistic feel to it. Plays fantastic. This is a beautiful course - what more can I say. Give it a play. I might of got out of there with even par - but had to go and play from bunker to bunker on last hole and went 2 over on 18. Faved this one and gave it 92%. I will come back - after I take some golf lessons.   :)

Very fun course you've made here, as always with your courses it had that signature touch and feel you apply to all of your work. Came in with a -7 (65) and had fun playing aganist 3 of Yeltz ghosts!  10/10!

Thanks everyone for playing!  I appreciate the feedback.  I had a blast making this one, and its good to hear people say I capture the Augusta vibe.   I'm going to release a few more pin versions for use on tour in a few months, but in the short term I'll release a front 9/back 9 edition for some match play.  I have a feeling this course could get very interesting in matchplay/4 ball.  I also plan to publish a few high quality/ high resolution screenshots of the course.  Details soon...
Enjoy!

I didn't plan to let the player cut the corner on 5, but I'm satisfied to hear you went for it anyway. :D
How much wind was at your back, since you barely missed the carry?
