Course has been published.  Full breakdown and description of the course and holes can be found here:
http://www.hb-studios.com/forum/index.php/topic,28668.0.html





This is an old lost course I did in TGC1.  I was 16-17 holes in when the course was unknowingly corrupted after a game patch.  I finished the remaining holes but couldn't publish after that.

A lot of holes have been scrapped and the course has a new routing, but I've kept and heavily improved on my 18th hole which is a tribute to the 18th at The Ridge at Manitou up in Mckellar Ontario.

I'm looking to incorporate some Canadian shield into the course, because it is very prevalent in the type of course I'm hoping to recreate  (see Muskoka Bay, Seguin Valley, Ridge at Manitou). 

If anyone can point me in the direction of some well implemented rock formation, I'd appreciate it.


If you want to see the old course and what it looked like, you can look here: http://www.hb-studios.com/forum/index.php/topic,10927.msg125606.html#









This one was inspired by Giant's Ridge, the tree line at the back provides a small amount of coverage that I was looking for.


This is based off of Seguin Valley's signature par 3.  I changed the green into a biarritz style green.  It's long, has the swale separating the front and the back.  You'll have a variety in club selection depending on the pin position and wind.  Don't miss left or right.


Another tribute hole based off of the Ridge at Manitou.  Got creative with the green and put a Raynor thumbprint in the middle.


Here is an overview of the water holes on the front 9.

I’m thinking that this looks a heck of a lot better than the original.  Of course.... your skills as a designer have gotten better after a couple years..... lol.  Our styles all evolve over time.  I’m looking forward to it.
