Going forward I'm going to continue to use the same thread for all my ongoing projects. Rather than setting up new threads each time for a new project, I'll just keep them all together and easier to find.

I was planning on using a thread already open but apparently I'm not allowed rename it......

So after wrapping up my FCC Design Contest Course last week, I'm heading back to RCR's for a little bit and doing something I haven't done yet - A course from across the pond in the USA, it's going to be a desert course and I'm also doing an RCR Design Series, which is essentially going through the process of how I build my RCR's.

The course I've started building is The Golf Club at Dove Mountain, Arizona, a former home of the WGC Accenture World Matchplay. The course has 3 different 9's: Wild Burro, Tortolita and Saguaro. Mine will be following the Saguaro & Tortolita 9's as the WGC did.

I've already began working on the course with the first hole measured out and the second hole not far behind. No images to share right now as you'd just be staring at a desert with measuring markers.

Definitely caught the fictional course design bug, 3-4 holes deep into a new project. Have a full 18 pretty much planned out so just putting all the work in hole by hole and will make adjustments. Not my usual process at all, but just rolling with it for now.

This one is simply inspired by my love for golf. Played a lot of municipal style courses as a kid growing up, teeing off earlier than 8am to get ahead of the senior members. So it's solely based on that, a simplistic but tight parkland course, set at 8am tee time on a beautiful sunny morning.
