Hard at work on the design project for other folks holes...but this is something I've fiddled with now and then a little. One picture is all you get.
I think some full on fantasy golf needs to be had...

You should build a massive spiral staircase made out of big rigs that lead up the mountain. Then we'll ask HB for some "Lord of the Rings" characters to climb it.
Just a thought.

I thought about trying to build a castle clubhouse at Killarney, my only idea was using the stone fences that we have but it didn't work out... However you may be able to come up with something that looks okay in the distance.
My Courses:
Red Rock National
The Links @ Inverness Point
Pine Park Lodge (9 hole)
Helena Island Estate (9 hole)
Grizzly Paw Golf Club
Killarney Golf and Country Club
The Great Northern G&CC
The Links of Isolation Island
Coyote Canyon (Original Members, Tour and now 2016 multi)

Exactly what I have been thinking for over two months, after about 1000 realistic courses here, time for some sculpting art for the scenery. As long as the course plays like a semi-normal course, why not have some whacked out custom scenery?
Courses Created:
Coastal Taipan
Rattlesnake Pointe
Bethpage State Park Black Course
Glen Abbey GC
Horned Viper GC (Gold Tees)
Thousand Islands Golf and CC

Why do i play with a female avatar? Because I would rather look at an ugly female than a pretty male.....

Great idea Reeb!   Lots of BAD fantasy courses out there.  Where are some good ones?  Have started to hear that many courses are starting to look the same.  Maybe time for some of the good designers to branch out and stretch their wings.  Not all of the holes of a fantasy course would need to be impossible pars (in my mind) some could be normal par or birdie opportunities BUT just have a fun fantasy look. 

Am intrigued by one of your pictures above that shows some bunkers and a bit of fairway (and or green) on a small island.  Scary

that's a shortcut on a par 5. Good drive to the island leaves you about 210 in. Otherwise it's three shots around the cliff.

I'm not aiming for this to be super hard or anything...just have a fantasy look and feel. It will play fine but there will be some shots that you wouldn't want in real life that's for sure.

None of the holes are too hard  by any stretch. Plays about as hard/easy as Borthwick Bay right now. Only 6 holes in though. Still working on the hole by hole project for other folks. that is going to SUCK...but I said I'd do it...so I kinda have to do it. :)
