Looks incredible.  Jumping arena is brilliant and such an awesome, original idea.  Can't wait to play it.

Good luck in the competition.

Cheers Scarpy.....
Had great fun building the show jumping arena... and I lost count of how many takes it took to make that part of the video... My hard drive breathed a sigh of relief after I deleted all the out takes.  :D

Put your own  individual style into this one its certainly different, alot detail here  to catch the eye during your round
Lord Roebeck must be proud of this Estate, how many rooms is there and how much is it to stay the night, is golf and a buffet breakfast included in the package.

Course plays well and a few tight fairways but overall easy feel and on the eye as well and greens generous and not too hard to get a birdie.

nearly got a hole in one on one of the par 3,s , par 5,s reachable in 2 which makes it exciting


I thought i saw the SS Minnow over to the left, if the Skipper and Gilligan are aboard im afraid i wont be getting aboard unless Ginger comes along

Hey just wondering can i bring my Horse  to the Gymkana are there any caveat,s he is a bit small he looks like a mule but please dont discriminate hes a great little jumper, also i am a bit heavy so i hope i can get over those fences

well done sam  great job its courses like this being out there,  different from the normal style that make tgc  interesting and fun

Wow , great looking course, I love the way you spent so much time on the whole thing, even the parts that won't really be seen while playing the course. It will be a while before I can come up with anything this original, I'm still finding my way around the course designer and still struggle with the graphic's issues. Can't wait to play this course.
There is no  shame in defeat, there is only shame if you do not learn from it.

Some things I really liked, some things that I didn't.

Overall, this is your best to date.

Worthy of a replay before I comment anymore, as I played it early this morning, online with another --- and well, I was distracted from my note taking ... but it is a well done course, even though I was playing in High Winds North of 14 MPH ... so, I found a few holes not suited for these winds, But certainly playable.

Thankfully HBS gives us "Overhead View" as I needed to refer to it a few times  ;)

I had tons of fun with my round. My favorite build of yours to date. Going to be revisiting and taking my time to enjoy all the sites.  You've struck an impressive balance of planting without it affecting the fps. Thanks for sharing!

Hey! Thrangar.......

Just for future reference: I always mention the artist(s) & track(s) in my description for the videos......

But, if you watched an embedded version that information cannot be seen unless you click to watch on YouTube?

The track used was "Divenire" by composer & pianist Ludovico Einaudi from the album of the same name:

Divenir:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8SkX9CSJQo 

Full album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfwe5LiSBe0

Cheers.  :)

Great flyover, so Sam when are you going to join the video preview team over a TGCTours?

If Taste doesn't mind (he may already have plans), I am looking at doing video's on all these entries, starting hopefully in the next few days.

Thanks everyone for the positive feedback so far (awaiting DDawg's constructive criticism for future builds).

Obnex: I'm not comfortable or rather confident enough with voicing over descriptive transcripts of holes & playability for previewing Tour courses. Certainly not in the professional way you and Andre (CrazyCanuck1985) are. I'm just not that knowledgeable when it comes to talking course management & layout.  :-[

Good news on you possibly taking over from where Tastegw left off (due to time constraints) doing the play through video's though (fingers crossed).

Enjoyed my round here yesterday. I like how compact the course is, and like the design of the Clubhouse and equestrian centre.

I gave it an 8.

A few of the greens were a little too steep for me and I struggled on them, but thats more my bad play.

All in all some great holes here.

Cheers Elz..... was hopin' your good self and CrazyCanuck would Twitch broadcast it in one of your double act shows but I'll settle for Canucks solo round.

Loved your Valkyrie Fields btw......  Had this playing on a loop while ripping it up... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7AlEvy0fJto

Yeah Canuck's doing this one solo because I'd already played it.

Glad you liked my course, and EVERYONE should have that song on repeat as they play it....
