Hi guys, just released my latest course, I’ve made this one in the Delta theme which doesn’t seem to be used that often. I will try and upload pictures over the weekend, but started a new job working shifts a few months ago so will do my best, thanks to everyone who played my previous courses, I really appreciate the support, Nigel

NB: I play-tested a bunch of courses over the past few days, so if your course doesn't match my comments, please forgive me.  I tried to keep my notes straight.

I thought you did a terrific job with the sculpting, routing and especially the planting.  Lots of nice stuff to look at. 

I have to say, however, that by the fourth or fifth hole I'd had enough of the trees.  Having to route every single shot into a sliver of opening between trees, or over or through trees, trees and more trees got to be tiresome.  The course is pretty, but I don't think it plays very well.

How did I make a twelve on a par five hole? It's simple - I missed a four foot putt for an eleven.

thanks for playing the course jeffbdvs, i understand what you mean about the trees but from my design point of view thats why i put so many on there, the last few courses I've made I've been making them a little harder each time, i don't want all of my courses to be so easy you don't have to think your way around it, the fade and draw are there for a reason, like the deep bunker on each hole, people are chipping out of them.
As i said i do understand your point of view, i played the course a hundred times while designing and i hope that it does play well if you place the ball in the right areas, thanks once again for playing the course.

Thanks for playing the course Stan, I'm glad you enjoyed it, depending on wind etc -2 is good score, cheers Stan

Just finished the course. Loved it really. Perfect color choice for the fairways. Trees really only came into play on the second hole for me. Decent drive on the right side of the fairway that big tree on the right blocked my approach. My fault should have played to the left there. Great job outstanding looking and playing course.

Thanks for the comments Lancers, yes you need to see how the land lies on a few holes to make life easier, i ended up on the right a number of times while testing and i just went up couple of clubs so to compensate for the leaves, Peter Allis used to say trees were 90 percent air but i think they're a bit thicker in tgc2.
Thanks again for playing and comments, Nigel

Few more pics of a more manageable size, it's not my most detailed course because of work constraints but I hope you find it a fair challenge.
