Published "Woodland Golf Club" located just west of Boston, MA and across the street from Brae Burn that I built about a year ago.

"By 1901 the founders of Woodland constructed the club's first true golf course – a nine-hole layout measuring 2619 yards. By 1907 the club built its first 18-hole course, measuring 5623 yards with nine holes on each side of the railroad tracks. In the 1920s Donald Ross was commissioned to redesign the existing layout.

While Wayne Stiles is the architect of record, there is no question that Ross spent considerable time working on the Woodland remodeling. Ross' contouring, bunkering and routing affected 9 holes. His most important contribution, however, was the course routing, which remained largely unchanged until the early 1960s, and even then was incorporated into the "new Woodland".

In 1960 architect Geoffrey Cornish (noted for his work at The Country Club and Myopia Hunt Club, among others) undertook a massive hole-by-hole redesign of the golf course. "I have been extremely proud over the years to claim that I was associated with the remodeling of Woodland," Cornish noted in 2001, adding that the job was "the first comprehensive remodeling executed in the Boston area" in almost a quarter century.

For the past few years, golf course architect Stephen Kay has assisted in the development and implementation of the golf course master plan. turning the club's 135 acres into a uniquely enjoyable golf course. One hears it over and over: You never get tired of playing Woodland."

It took about an hour. I used low brick wall and the retaining wall and just sunk them into the ground.

Just published "Meadow Lake AcresCC LiDAR" located just north of Jefferson City, MO. This is a fun course with many tee shots asking for a shaped shot around trees. Enjoy!

"The golf course is truly a gem. Blessed with a wonderful layout, the course has 45 white sand bunkers and water comes into play on nine holes. These features along with tree lined fairways, allows the course to present a strong challenge for players of all skill levels. The professional staff maintains and manicures the bent grass greens and Zoysia fairways and tees to the highest standards taking advantage of the property's excellent soil, air movement characteristics, and the dual row irrigation system. The gently rolling terrain allows a majority of our members the opportunity to walk the course. If we had to choose a signature hole it would be the Par 3, Number 6."

Just published "Beverly Country Club" located just outside Chicago, IL! This course has recently gone through a major overhaul bringing the course back to it's formal Donald Ross glory days! Enjoy!

"Beverly Country Club is one of Chicago's historical cornerstones. The club was founded in 1908 and initially designed by George O'Neil, also the club's first professional golfer. Shortly after, well-known golf course architect Tom Bendelow helped fortify the layout. In 1918, the legendary architect Donald Ross created and executed a master plan to renovate the course. In 1919, Eddie Loos was serving as the head professional and paired with Jim Barnes to win a memorable match played against Jock Hutchison and Bob MacDonald."

As a request,... could you take a look at Black Sheep Golf Club out in Sugar Grove?
Looks like a nice track that is out in the middle nowhere.

"The Alan C. Alford Red Reef Family Golf Course is located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, north of Palmetto Park Road and south of Spanish River Boulevard, on U.S. Highway A1A (North Ocean Boulevard).

The 9 hole, 1357 yard course provides breathtaking views of the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic ocean and has holes ranging from 64 to 227 yards in length. The course was designed by Charles Ankrom and offers tees, fairways, and greens with Seashore Paspalum grass, which provides bright, vibrant color and superior playing surfaces."

Great course.  27 holes too.  I'm actually wearing a black sheep hat right now coincidentally.

Happy new course Friday! Just published "Fox Hills Country Club" located in Paragould, AR! Fun 9 hole course with small tricky greens. Would be great for a quick skins or match play!

"Established in 1929, Fox Hills Country Club is rich in history and remains one of the finest golf courses in Northeast Arkansas. This 9-hole par 35 course ranges from 2107 to 2755 yards. It features Champion Bermuda greens. Our signature hole is number six which is a par four with a green protected by a pond in front, out of bounds to the left, and a creek to the right."

This is indeed one of my favorites in your extensive catalog.  As you stated, it's a "fun little course", but beyond that, you took full advantage of the relatively small footprint of the course to load up your creation with lots of extras (building, roads, etc) that create great authenticity and match the flyover and Google Earth PERFECTLY.  Good show!

Just published "Hawk's View Golf Club" located in Lake Geneva, WI! Located on an Indian reserve, with beautiful terrain and views. Check out the Totem Pole on #2 that guards the creek in front of #2 green!

The championship caliber Como Crossings course at Hawk’s View was rated as Wisconsin’s Best Golf Course in 2015 by Golf Advisor reviews. It was also voted Lake Geneva’s Best Golf Course in 2018, 2016, and 2015. The par-72 7,074 yard layout features dramatic changes in elevation, pristine playing conditions, and beautiful landscaping throughout. Five sets of tees will ensure you can find the right yardage for your game."
