I found it and played it - at least some of it. It is waaaay too severe for my liking. Yah, I know there are some false edges on Augusta National, but pulleeeese.
I eventually lost patience with shots that took up to 2 full minutes to stop rolling. Overdone, IMHO.  ::)

Would be curious as to exactly what you find "overdone", with the physics of this game I would consider some of the slopes to be under cooked if anything, but then again there's horses for courses as they say.

No doubt the limitations of HB's own archaic search GUI is shooting themselves in the foot on RCR's (which are bar none the best playing courses in the game IMO), nothing beats sorting through 17 pages of people's nightmarish vision of perhaps the most sacred place on planet earth lol.

I mostly stay with official courses. what good is having hundred's of thousand's courses? if 1/2 are junk and you have to wast your time wading through them. they need a better way of rating them for difficulty and pliability and sorting them out.     

Staying with the official courses is really short changing yourself. They are for the most part not very good.

To each his own.

He thinks Augusta is overdone but official courses are good.

All credibility lost.

Official courses are designed to be easy that’s why, they’re for new players to get into the game but it will come to a time when he wants to challenge himself.

While I have respect for the amount of time that was put into it, I think and backed up by your response that extreme green designs like this will and have already put off players.

As to true representation of said course, I hear an announcer say just an "outside rightside cup putt here" yet mine was a two foot break, so take all recreation with a grain of salt.

The physics of the game need to be tweeked so its possible that real life hard courses that are reproduced even to perfection are outside of this games ability to enjoy or to relate to.

Don't let the self imposed snobbery put off your opinions we need balance around here!

I’ve seen putts on Augusta during the masters where the golfer had to putt away from the hole, I remember Bernhard Langer once had his back to the hole and putted across a fringe to get the ball close. The TV cameras flatten the greens out your best bet is to watch the Ken Brown on the course moments those show you just how severe the slopes are, at the end of the day if you don’t like the course don’t play it.

I don't think you insulted anybody you wasn't keen on the course and thats fine,Perhaps when you get better at game you will enjoy it a lot more a lot of players play cyber golf to score low,others perfer the more serious side you cannot please everybody all the time,enjoy the game how you want to play it.
