Real Club Valderrama Website


I have wanted to do this course since TGC1 so all my other projects are on hold for now while I get this one done (in theory at least  :P)

Already got the Lidar heightmap plot set up and have about 75% of the course mapped out on OSM.

If it is half as good as the Belfry it will be great

Getting there slowly but surely. Got all the holes mapped out, just some more bunkers and all the cosmetic stuff after that

looks good and nice tree detail.  im assuming there are ways to use lidar and have plenty of plant meter to work with from the last lidar I played and, this layout.

The liDAR process leaves 3/4 of the planting meter.

Found more info and details about some of the changes they have made to the course during their major "restoration project" they have undertaken over the last few years.

Unfortunately it would appear that the imagery I traced out on OSM initially was a bit out of date (in a lot of places at least), which is a shame as the OSM imagery I traced from matched up with the Lidar data I had almost perfectly in terms of positioning so I didn't really need to do any messing about in terms of adjusting it to match the terrain (like seems to happening most of the time).

At least it explains why I couldn't work out how certain things seemed slightly "off" in one place but then exactly right somewhere else only a few feet away when I have been working on it and checking measurements etc.....had me confused on more than one occasion I can tell you  :P ;D

Luckily a lot of the changes don't really affect the actual layout at all. They were things like new irrigation and sprinkler systems and completely re-laying all the cartpaths (ok I have had to shift them about slightly in places but no biggie), also changing to and laying down new types of grass for all the rough and greens etc.

However there have been significant changes or adjustments to the sizes of the greens, some of the bunkers and how some of the fairways are cut / shaped which does mean I have to make quite a lot of changes to what I already have in place. It's fairly straightforward to do, it just all takes time if I want it to be right (which of course I do).

Anyway, I may have a few more WIP pics to show you possibly later tonight.

Oh btw there are a couple of quite interesting videos on their website showing some of what they have been doing for anyone interested

Doesn't actually look like a huge amount has changed on this overhead shot compared to the previous one but there has I can assure you  ;D
