so i started one,  but not promising ill finish it.

no idea on what to call it tbh.

this is the start,   I am going to go with a different approach this go around, I have plotted the entire land mass with all the holes in their locations minus the textures, created a clubhouse, 3 rivers/creeks, a neighborhood on the north side of the course complete with minimal housing (these eat my bar for breakfast and lunch),  then i started working on the back nine (holes 18, 10, 17)









any suggestions or ideas are welcome,   the brown heavy rough is just temporary, its for contrast to help me see where to work.
i will....

I think the white sand would be great on that theme. Either way i think the theme is under-rated. Hopefully you'll be inspired to continue.

I sincerely doubt that any course from you could be less than amazing.  I actually like the Alpine theme.   I think that after you work with it for a little while you'll come to appreciate it more.

kodiak was boreal! so long ago lol.

anyhoot,  some more progress,  5 holes in (27% done) and at the stage where i usually decide to keep it or toss it, so far keeping it seems to be my winning argument.







and this is what is left to do




i had a plan going into this with a vision i wanted to attempt,  the vision was the alpine/swiss background with a course nested in a valley right in the middle,  little to no trees on the course itself, just a few bushes and some tree's to protect tee'ing areas.  the clubhouse is the lowest point on the course, so the further you get from the clubhouse, the higher you go, though, there are no major elevation changes in any particular hole, its all very gradual up and downhill.   so on the furthest holes, you should be able to see the clubhouse and the rest of the entire course, just dont get wet in the creeks, use the bridges please.
i will....
