Bar some perimeter planting along the road and from other holes that run alongside, the first hole is complete.

The 13th named "The Fort" after the Fairy Fort located in Kilmurry. The Fairy Forts are a part of Irish Heritage that date back to late Iron Age, early Christian Times. The site at the back of the green is not 100% just yet, I've got base planting done and if still room in the plant meter when I'm done, it'll get expanded further.

Into the final stages of the project now, the course itself is mapped and sculpted, all the planting for the course is pretty much done, just working on some background stuff. All going well will be published tomorrow.

Did a playtest on it with typical links conditions, everything cranked up to the max and managed to shoot even par. It's going to be a very tough test, as planned, and demands plenty of patience.

My overall aim was to create a course that challenges players, a course that requires the very best of course management. Plenty of birdie opportunities, but plenty of holes that can rack up bogies. Looking forward to getting this one out there

COS1411 is the beta, correct?
How did I make a twelve on a par five hole? It's simple - I missed a four foot putt for an eleven.
