I thought it might be a good idea for people to check in on their teams status and see if we can help Keith decide on a deadline for this contest.

Han and I are cruising along and the course is starting to take shape. I estimate we should be near complete in 2 weeks time. I'm in no rush but, would like to have an idea of how long we have to fiddle around.

Also, has there been any decisions regarding the judging of the contest?

Here are some flyover vids of our more completed holes so you can get an idea of the type of course we are working on >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ

I would definitely be curious to hear how progress is going from all the teams.  It won't effect the judging but it is definitely something that will be interesting to hear regarding how working together went for each team.

I don't know the beta start and end date yet so I am a bit hesitant to set a deadline for course submission just yet.  I don't want to create a conflict with the beta testing.

We have 6 holes down...some planting started...sculpting is being done as we go. I wouldn't put a percentage on it yet. I think that once we get the front 9 done the back should be easier because we will get our look finalized on the front before continuing to the back.

ErnieTheWels hasn't really gotten involved yet so it's been Staypuft and me doing the work so far. We may just call Ernie in for playtesting if it goes much longer.

I think we will pick up the pace a little bit this weekend...we'll see.

Tumbleweeds.

Maybe some WIP pics would get people motivated?

We have some nice holes.  And there are the ones ErixonStone keeps putting down.  Those take time to fix; have to change the fairway end distance and waviness on those.  And tone down the hazard slider near the greens.

Actually, we're moving along quite nicely.  Looks like Keith gave us another six weeks of time, so there is plenty of time left to get this thing done.

We've got all 18 laid out with some basic planting.  We built our main distinguishing features as we went along, and now we're on to the second round of planting.  I'm looking forward to getting this thing published... we think it's an exciting course.

I have to say that I've really enjoyed working with both my partners.  There has been a mutual respect among everyone and we've all been given the leeway to make changes to anything on the course.  We also agreed early on how we would go about things and we made decisions based on what would be best for the course, and not necessarily what is in our comfort zone.  Hopefully, that translates to a varied, but cohesive set of 18 holes.
