Hi Everyone.

Just for fun, every week I'm going to create a 5 course tour of some of my favourite courses from the game, past and present, and I'll add one or two of my own every now and then.

I intend to do themed weeks, all types of courses, if you want your course to be included please PM me, but I will have to play it and like it first, a great way to do this is to send your course to CrazyCanuck1985 and get reviewed on one of his twitch streams. This will be a great way to get courses discovered, and plays up!

Good luck everyone, I'll post the winner of each week's tour here.

Tcary333 will be posting the tours on PS4
CrazyCanuck1985 will be posting the tours on XB1

Week 5 - 22nd March - 28th March 2015 - "Knights of the 9"
This week, some of my favourite 9 hole courses throughout the game's lifetime. As they are considerably shorter, there will be 8 courses this week. From Early Access we have a quality course that asks questions off the tee box in Knotty Pines. 3 courses, including the winner of PocketScout's 9 hole challenge which coincided with the release of the surface tools, Igl Lai GC, Redbrook Golf and Marina and the winner of said competition The club on Whispering River, Front 9. Also a remake of one of those entries, New The Elderglenn - Members 9 kicks us off. I've recently recreated one of the most popular 9 hole courses from Early Access (which I was thrilled about), Valefor GC - 2015 Edition and TasteGW's excellent Links course Abbadon are also included. Also, as we're talking about 9 holes, it'd be a shame to miss of the winner of the recent 9 hole, par 3 competition, so Dr Yeti's Par 3 Paradise brings a beautiful end to the tour.

Hope you all enjoy.

Great fun Elz.... & as per "Isla Madeleine Resort" all the tracks are tour worthy over at TGCTours.

Finished the 90 holes, par 359, 40 under including my best ever round of 56 (16 under) on your Valkyrie Fields  ;D ....

Winds were moderate (5 - 12 mph) for the 2 days I played it over.

Currently 2nd place behind Thranger (50 under), but Fuzion hasn't completed yet & was going a bomb.

Looking forward to next weeks instalment.

Finished at -58 for the tour with an average -10 (for me) in the last round. I was playing in 9-13mph winds so that may explain why my score was lower
than expected.

Plan to make this a habit!

^^^ This

I have not played any Tour or Tournament (since establishing a handicap which has been stuck at +3.3 ATM) as I thought I would not find ANY competition satisfactory fun not having a chance to even sniff the top of a leaderboard after seeing scores that are posted on this forum daily

but after seeing the courses chosen for this event (which I have already enjoyed) ---- much to my surprise --- I found playing this Tour to be much more rewarding than I thought.... as it made me bear down & focus my shot-making and as a result actually finish above my ave HCP which proved reward enough in itself  :D

TYVM Elz, I look forward to future Tours you may put together

Thanks so much for the feedback and glad you're all enjoying the tour! (and several of you smashing it up by the looks of things!)

I have sorted out week 2, I will reveal the name today (to keep you all guessing), the courses tomorrow (Saturday 28th Feb) and then release the tour Sunday 1st March.

The name...

So Week 2 is Very Early Access week, where we go back and revisit not only some of the best courses from Early Access, but from the pre-surface tool days!

Have these courses lasted the test of time against some of the best from today?

How far have these designers come in their course creation skills?

All to be discovered this week!

Week 2 Courses!
