This course Tvismark Golf Klub is a wonderful course in the links theme ... very relaxing course

The designer is at the top of his game so check out his other courses

Enjoy this ... and in my opinion deserves more plays

This course Hector Lagata Privado Oasis will probably win the award for longest name   .... I might have to edit to fit on the list

Anyhow it's a stunning course in the desert/steppe theme with great hole layouts

Enjoyed this so much  ... and in my opinion deserves more plays

Played Bazyawn Canyon.That was a nice one.Sculpting of the fairways was well done.

Have a try at Royal St. Georges-Sandwich. It's a links style course that is well done and plays good. Think you might like it.

Keep em coming
R.I.P. Divotmaker. It was my pleasure to have known you.

Icyken is right ... I'm playing courses that have been published for quite a while and have very few plays  ... giving them exposure

RSG's will get a thousand plays straight out the gate  ... and rightly so

Well I got a round in .. playing with no aids, made a few niggling mistakes  ... you will have to play my ghost to see how I got on   ;)

All in all a very good effort for your first course and look forward to your next one

This is Shortbush Forest ... lovely looking and probably the cleanest most crisp design I've seen by a designer

This is an immaculate ,beautifully manicured piece of work

Might be a little pristine for some but I enjoyed it ... and in my opinion deserves more plays

Just a quick note, I designed Shortbush Forest on the fly experimenting with one-time sculpting. From a blank slate I raised the land in random places then built around the land without disturbing it much except for tees and greens. It's got an unusual look with clean lines from just a few brushes. Finished it pretty quickly as a result. Gotten better at sculpting since TGC1, check out

Pinecone Alley '18 (Tournament)
Shortbush Metro

Thanks for playing.

Just played JoyPark and dare I say it  .... was a Joy to play !

Wonderful use of the features in the designer and each hole was a visual treat

An open parkland style with good creativity  ... and in my opinion deserves more plays

Note *  I played JoyPark18 from their course list, as there is also two 9 hole courses as well
