I'm happy to announce that The Forum Country Club is now published and ready for play.  This project is the result of cooperation between 18 individuals since the idea was proposed almost 2 months ago. Each person had to design 1 hole each on a predetermined plot of land built by myself.  For my amusement, I recreated the layout of my home golf course and then removed all the holes and let the team build wherever they wanted.  As long as the holes had a proper layout and were close enough to each other to help represent a realistic golfing experience.

I'd like to thank everyone who participated:

and an extra thanks to Dr. Yeti and Reebdoog for help with adding the minor details like extra tee blocks, furniture, washrooms, sheds, etc.

Please enjoy some of these pictures and get out there and play the course.

Enjoyed helping out, I'm ready for the next one.

Actually being part of a group works better for me as I don't have the time to do a whole course.

This was a really neat project to be involved in with so many talented designers adding their own stamp to the course.

Thank you to all involved and a huge thanks to Dan (guitardude) for getting this up and running and acting as the central hub for all of us.

Hope everyone enjoys the course.

No need to wait until lunch.  If Anthony catches you, just tell him it's very important TGC research.

Thanks for the 1mph wind  ;D

Course plays great if I may say so myself, there are some easy, medium and tough holes in 1 place...never came across any obvious flaws on the course, so credit to the fixes that were made during the testing.

Had 2 rounds so far -6 and -7 with bogeys on both rounds..so will be hitting again soon for that bogey free round.

Gets a 10 from me  ::) ;D

this is where it would be fun to have hole stats available (cough, LORIN, cough). :)

Like I know I've seen a pretty mixed bag on 18. Would be cool to know stats.

This now one of my fav autum courses, I saw a friend message about this course so have been playing it for 3 days, right from the tee box on 1, I could see that there was something about this course(at the time I had no idea it was the Forum course) every hole felt different and yet the flow was nice.

We all have opinions, but really my only valid complaint is the bridge on 3  it gathers balls and eats them up  never to be seen again!

I vote for this course to become official, it wont be deleted come release  will it?

Hey Thrangar,

You actually stumbled upon the beta version of the course I published (and misspelled) just so we could test the course out under different wind conditions.  The final version can be found as "The Forum Country Club".

There were only a few small tweaks made for the final version.  That pesky bridge you mentioned is one of them.  It has been moved to the end of the fairway and behind the green so that it doesn't interfere with play.

the bridge looks GREAT back there too. That corner was kind of...empty but the bridge ties it in with the hole and looks fabulous. Loved the change.
