Can you make the Dustin Johnson bunker pink?  ;D

I have played one course in USA, and Wolf Creek is the one. :)
Special course I might add, tricky, with lots of up and downs. Not a super-course, but fun to play.

regards,

Fourth hole "Glory" 50% completed Tee to approach. Tried to extend coastline with the method theclv24 noted but I needed almost double the size of the default plot to make it work. Instead I went back to 2 separate coastlines, one each for for front/back nine.

This is looking amazing...but honestly I never had any doubt it would. One of the best designers in the game. Hands down.

Keep grinding, Craig. Looks just awesome.  You're continually setting the bar higher.

As much as this would make it a pain to play, can you try to keep the fairways properly narrow, just as they are in real life? Many of them are only 20-25yds wide...I can't tell from the previews but I trust your work.

Intent is to replicate as much as possible. True there are a few fairways that are 25 -28 yards wide on this course. But by design, most of these holes with narrow fairways have adjacent larger than normal first cut rough areas as bail out areas opposite of the major hazards. So there will be a penalty for missing fairways while  avoiding the hazards.  I did a quick double check of the first 4 holes I have completed, all the driving and approach areas are correct width.

Awesome! It really does look great so far. I guess I'd have one last request: could you release both a 7700yd version and a 7100yd version? :D

Will probably be closer to 7300 yards, 7700 yards is tough with 265 yard drives and high winds. Add into that the fact that some of the tougher pin positions can only be fair with short iron approaches. Of course there will also be a Protee version for us mortals that plays around 6500 yards.

Completed  #7th hole , 235 yards from the tips to the back pin. Aptly named "Shipwreck".  This hole should  make Ariel Atom happy  ;D.

I hit driver there when I played it in real life - it gets a bit windy :)
