Hi all,

    Now I'm working on the TGC 2019 version of a former Links 2003 course of mine : Broken Arrow Championship Course. As always, this is not a flat course, that's my fate...

    This par 70 7200 yds course plays up down and between wooded valleys with good alternation of short an longer holes. Three par 4 are around 500yds, mostly downhill. The 18th is played from the advanced tees to make it a difficult par 4 instead of an easy par 5.

     If some you you have the courage, you can test the course under the name DB-tst-BACC01. Feel free to spot of the bad or unfair places, it'll be a great help.

     Here is a first preview of the course showing the club-house from the far end of the course, behind the 10th green. As the course do not come back home at the 9th, you see the 1st and 18th next to the club-house, the 10th 11th fairways in front, the 9th green is slightly visible beyond the 10th tees.

     More news and previews will come soon.

Just to show, here is the top view of the course routing. As you can see, I do not pay for the land. Would I, I'd design tighter courses. As always there are some elevation changes, I just can't help designing roller coasters. This one is not so sloping though. Only one water hazard and it comes into play only for the very bad shots.

This update to inform you that the last test course has been released. I've corrected all  that was pointed, at least what I found relevant. I've mostly work on bunker shapes and elevations so they please me more now.

No big routing changes have been made except two tees : on the first I built a champ tee just next to the putting green making the hole playing some 10-15 yds longer (see the picture below). On the 17th I pushed the champ tee some 10 yds back because the driver was too easy to play then. Now you have to think a little more on this tee. Some minor look and features have been reworked to make the course smoother and reasonably natural.

I've set the course default hour next to dusk to make you better see the elevations. Let me know of you find some weird places, unfair pins, etc. Thank you for your help
