The Club At Montecito:

The California Santa Barbara Mountains provide a stunning backdrop to one of the regions premier golf clubs. Situated inland on the eastern coastal plains The Club At Montecito is open to members all year round due to the unique Mediterranean like climate conjured up by the area's air pressure & foothill winds known locally as “sundowners” which can push temperatures upwards of 90 degrees even in the winter months!
The lush, varied landscape is broken up by rocky outcrops & tropical flora that flourish among the more natural trees & vegetation.

Theme: Tropical
Atmospheric Conditions: Summer, mid morning, very little cloud cover.
Holes: 18.
Approximate Length; 7370 yards.
Par: 72 (4 x par 3, 10 x par 4, 4 x par 5).
Fairways firmness: Normal.
Greens Firmness: Normal.
Greens speed: Medium @ 159 feet putt rating.
Cart Hire: Yamaha, Sun Classic G5E & G3E subject to availability.
Crowds on course for tournaments: Yes

3 Minute Video Showcase:

Additional Information:
The river which flows down from the mountains & eventually out into the Pacific ocean adds an infrequent water hazard to the outbound 9 holes whilst the inbound trail works its way inland up & around the historic bell tower & church with its small graveyard & visitors centre. The course as a whole offers a relaxing moderate challenge relying on distances, sand traps & the occasional green tier to defend the relatively easy par 72.

Note:
The Club At Montecito is my entry into the TGCTours Designer Challenge Series competition 2017.

Thanks a lot moneyman - had a blast making that one!  ;D

Valdebrun: It's not an RCR mate.. I did however get some ideas & inspiration from this Montecito Country Club website >>> http://www.montecitocc.com/club/scripts/section/section.asp?GRP=27500&NS=PG

Really cool video!
I will play your course, but the cars at the 18th hole are too expensive for my skill ;-)

Haa haaaaa.. A good point Rolf & the very reason on closer inspection you'll discover protective high wired fencing safeguards against wayward approach shots.  :P

Montecito was designed on PC..... could anybody from XBox & / or PS4 let me know if they have experienced any lag?
Cheers!

Another gem of a track here Sam - you're best in my opinion. What I liked was the greens, how receptive they were & mainly just subtle breaks close to the pins. Some of the views, especially into the sun were spectacular and the clever planting from the golfers perspective.
Love your video showcases too & overall presentation. 5 stars & favorited. Keep up the good work, thanks.

Many thanks for the continued positive feedback guys.......
Nice ace on hole 3 Chelsea Saint & thanks for the plug in your Casuals Golf Club Society thread.
Jimgem - a pleasure as always... you deffo need a new controller mate - still a decent round in those winds & battling with that swing.

Jumped into The Insanitarium to play it handicapped DDawg & dumped a few thousand coins into the coffers in appreciation.
Cheers......
