Welcome to Nai Palm Hot Springs! I started this course quite a while back in TGC1 & shelved it in favor of another project primarily because I wasn't too enthused about the theme at the time. I kept changing it part way through then would keep coming back to it for whatever reason. Nevertheless after the release of TGC2 and finishing up another port over, I decided to dust this one off & finish it up. This was the 1st course where I'd started with a flat canvas which at 1st I felt was a bit too complicated but stuck with it, started shaping & sculpting & I have to say I think it came together a bit better than I expected.

So nestled in a valley on the remote Island of Nai in the South Pacific is a peaceful little getaway reachable only by sea or air secluded from city life & sky scrapers you'll find The Clubhouse on a hilltop with an 18 hole par 72 championship course surrounding it.

It's worth noting that during testing with winds in double digits the course played every bit of it's length from the back tees however with milder conditions you'll be able to knock the yardage down off the tees with alternate routes, so keep an eye out for em'!

The course:

Fairways - soft
Greens   - medium
Green Speed - fast
Tees:
Blue    - 7458
White  - 7245
Green -  6937
Red    -  6698

Hope you enjoy it and I look forward to your comments & critique's folks.

Peace all & thanks for playing!

Sculpting game from those pics is an 11/10. Can't wait to try this one out later. Nice work!

Thanks, look forward to your comments if/when you get a chance to nose around based on your prowess with the designer it'd mean a lot to hear your thoughts man!

Thoughts I posted at TGCtours site.... this is one heck of a course

Just played my first round here....Wow....

First off I love the Tropical environment (I think I am one of the few) The lighting the sculpting the layout of the opening tee catches my eye immediately
Gorgeous look off the first tee..

I am a sucker for plantings and such and I know thats probably not what I should be looking at the most but I love attention to detail even when a designer
takes a tree that may be alone by itself and take the time to plant some grass or a bush around the base....I know thats nitpicky but that just tells me they are taking their time

You did that here.... Loved the planting work throughout....That really stood out..

The bunkering I absolutely loved, not sure why not overly sculpted but the shapes etc just fit here...the layout and routing now that is outstanding in my opinion
Just great hole design and routing throughout.... Number 10 I just absolutely love the construction from tee to green.....

Absolute great work here I thoroughly enjoyed it even in the howling winds.....Give it a play folks you wont be disappointed

Great job sir

Terry

EDIT: How in the world I left out the WOW for hole 17 is beyond me....This is a spectacular course man.....I mean easily 5+ stars for me'
EDIT 2: Second round I was -8 after 7 in upwards of 13 mph winds... And as I stated the wheels fell off.. Finished up -9.....

Normally not a fan of tropics but this was a sweet course. Nice effort for sure.

An absolute delight.  Admittedly, I put on a skirt and played from the forward tees, hence a -10 score, will certainly man up and play from further back.  The views, the design, the layout were all perfection.  Putting was a pleasure, testing but very fair.  Many designers could learn from your green design and slopes.  Well done.
