Welcome to my latest project!  Legend has it this island was originally inhabited by King Kong.  The first settlers here found many downed trees, mysterious footprints, and large mounds of...compost.  However, no enormous mammals were ever found after many visitors scoured the island.  Now it's been transformed into a beautiful golf resort, where you can pay good coin to be flown in by helicopter.

I focused on making this a fun multiplayer course; great for alt-shot, skins, and match play!  There's birdies and eagles to be had, but the bogey monsters are lurking as well if you get too aggressive or too casual in your game. 

If you're a fan of picturesque par3s, risk/reward par5s, some driveable par4s, and all around fun- this is your course.  6 par3s, 6 par4s, and 6 par5s!  I also almost used up my plant meter for the first time in my design career.  Plays great on default settings, or faster/firmer settings.

Enjoy!

If someone knows how to shrink images in this forum that would be helpful...please let me know.  These images from IMGUR and default size there is way smaller

Another lovely venue, well worth a visit. It features in next Casuals Sneak Peek Evo up at weekend. Big fan of Negev and Connamara too. Any chance of adding a crowds version of these three? I can guarantee we'd use - get your hcp in 24 hours too. Either way, cheers for your work.

I glad you enjoyed, and your promo videos and your events are always spectacular!  This course will be hard to add crowds because I enclosed a lot of areas to give a denser tropical feel (or the coast is on the other side).  Negev and Connemara will be much easier to add crowds in. Let me know which you prefer and I can work on it first.

thanks!

Just played the back nine here at Kong and thoroughly enjoyed. Beautifully planted a very natural feel. Some real fun holes I really like 17 & 18. Looking forward to playing the front later, well done.

I had a blast playing this course, skins game  pretty sure I won some buck on it.   Was very fun did not realize you were the designer.  Will be playing in the future and perhaps fill up my wallet  8) ;D
