I've decided to do something with my Scottsdale RCR, as I hate the thought of the work being wasted. I've started completely revisiting all 18 holes to make them more accurate to the real life version using the techniques I've learnt. Isn't taking long as most the work is all done already.

I'm fully aware 2019 will ship with Scottsdale official, so I plan to remove all tournament dress and stadium around the 16th to at least give it a different feel to the official version shipping with the game. Almost like an early summer version of the course, after the Water Management Open when the public come to be disappointed about how boring the 16th looks! Green speeds will also be adjusted to stop a few holes being a luck fest.

I will also probably name or something else to avoid copyright issues.

It's quite shocking how inaccurate this course was, here's a shot of the new 1st hole compared to the old.

Old:



New:
Much thinner fairway, better undulations and a smaller green to match it's real life counterpart.


Old:


New:
Another angle of the thinner and sculpted fairway, and a much nicer sculpted and measured bunker.


It would be interesting to see if anyone would even want to even play this? It probably wouldn't stop me doing it regardless... But as always feedback is gratefully received.

To play Scottsdale as a member and not a tournament would be very cool, especially with the changes you're making.


Looks good, and I'll certainly play it when it's done, either in TGC2 or 2019 or both, depending on when you release it.
How did I make a twelve on a par five hole? It's simple - I missed a four foot putt for an eleven.

Not quite sure what I had been drinking when I first made hole 5... But it must of been something strong! Many changes have been made to the entire layout, even down to the hole waypoints.

Old:


New:
Better green positioning, sizing and surrounding terrain sculpting. Added missing fairway.


There's been many more changes to hole 5, a radical overhaul.

Hole 7

Old:


New:
Proper elevation, landscaping and yardage, cart path has switched sides, and true to life rocks and decor now feature alongside the long tees.Tee boxes have also been measured and shaped. It all makes for a much nicer shot.
