321 bunkers down only 567 to go! Both nines  are laid out. I am going to have to play with the layout to get the equivalent of 2 miles of coast line, GNCD plot does not quite have enough room to fit the entire course on one coastline. I had to juxtapose the back nine and create 2 coast lines.
#3  (0'man)




#4 Tee shot (Glory)



#5  570 yard par 5  (Snake)


#6  367 yard par 4   (Gremlins Ear)



#7 235 yards from the tips to the back pin. Aptly named "Shipwreck".



#8  495 yard par 4 "On the Rocks"



Pic of the first mile of more than two miles of coastal holes.


#18 499 yard par 4  "Dyeabolical"




#9  434 yard Par 4  "Down and Dirty"



#1 From the back tee's the 483 yard par 4  "Outward bound"


View from the more reasonable first hole tees


Approach to #1

Craig, you can extend the size of the plot. There might be easier ways, but the way I did it for Pinehurst was to lay a hole down right next to and up against the edge of the plot. It will extend the plot by, I don't know, 50 yards? You can keep doing this and extending it until it fits what you need. I don't know if there are any ramifications if you go a certain distance, but I didn't experience any issues with Pinehurst.

Great, I did not know that.  I will give it a try, don't need that much. Maybe a couple hundred yards.

I believe in you, Craig. Take your time and enjoy it. Your bunker work is extraordinary so if anyone can do this, it's you.

I wish I had known this before, it would have helped with a couple of issues I had with courses. I just tried repeating it on a plot and GNCD eventually crashed (PC), but it's a great tip, and could be very useful used in moderation.  :)

I tried it and had no issues, added maybe 200 yards. How many times did you extend it before crash?  I don't want to put 200 hrs into this only to find out later it is not stable.

that many bunkers to plant cannot be good for your mental health! fair play to you though...look forward to it!  :)
