Yes, it's sort of the look I am trying for in a couple small areas on my Oakland Hills recreation.....I played around with some cart path textures and then multi-planted grass to try to replicate a waste type area, but it just didn't look right.

Looks incredible! I went to the Barracuda Championship last year and I was blown away by how good the course looked. I've played a couple other courses around lake Tahoe, (including Old Greenwood, another Nicklaus course) and it looked to be by far the best. I'm really looking forward to seeing how this one turns out!

Nice, i probably saw you at the Barracuda last year and didn't even know it lol. Wife and I have gone the past 3 years. The first year we went it was still called the Reno-Tahoe Open.

Yes, this is a beautiful golf course with amazing elevations. The tee shot from 17 is crazy. I'm working slow and hard to try to make this right. I hope it turns out.

Using stracka line app + mild OCD = driving myself insane trying to make every inch exact.

I need to calm down lol.

Some pics from Hole 2 construction. Hole 9 will be next as I work from the water table upwards:

Light artistic liberty with the sand circle around the tree in the fairway. I'll probably remove it though since it is bothering me... lol.

Some more construction pics, we're getting there. First four pics are the chain of holes 6,7 and 8. The last one is 13 during the fairway build.

Looks great, you were able to finagle the 8th tee box in there to get the right elevation?

This is looking like a labor of love. Cant Wait ...
I found this and don't know if the can me of any help for you as references ... https://course.bluegolf.com/bluegolf/course/course/montreuxcc/tour.htm

The course setting reminds me of one I played near Truckee a few years back ... Maybe not a Nicklaus design, but I remember it was quite a bit of fun ...

Coyote Moon

I would love to see more of these courses from this region ...

It is most definitely a labor of love... it's been pretty intense at times lol. But when you live there, it's worth it. You want to get it right. Thanks for the bluegolf link, I'll use those images for future comparison hole pics in here.

Coyote Moon is a nice course too. Hopefully I'll get that one done at some point.

 You can expect some more courses from this area by me :) I have Edgewood Tahoe lined up for my next RCR after I'm done with Montreux, home of the annual American Century Celebrity Classic. Another beautiful course in this area.

More construction pics. This is the chain for holes 3,4 and 5.

the trees in the fairway in the 2nd pic aren't really there, it's just the cursor from the tree planter.
