Hole 15

Borachio

Another reachable par five, but it'll take a mixture of shot shaping, favourable wind and balls the size of a Diplodocus's arm pit.

Hole 16

Juliet

Another sodding reclaimed quarry.  Many a berk has attempted to take the green on and got their
feet wet.  Don't panic.  Take a birdie and move on.

Hole 17

Enobarbus

A very long par four where a par feels like a birdie.  Get the drive away cleanly or be happy with
a bogie.

Hole 18

Romeo

I love a par 3 finisher - Gives a player swinging poorly a chance for glory, gives the 19th some
drama and applies some pressure to a good round.

Right.  Now I've finally got that out of the way, I can play some other courses.

By a long way the most effort I've put into a course.  I hope you guys enjoy it.

This plays a bit harder than my last couple of courses but will still be a good test, I reckon.

If you're on the Xbox or PS4, it probably won't show for a few hours or so.

Another brilliant Biggins course. I really like this. It's neat, well presented, and the bunkers feel more relevant. The lighting is awesome, and it compliments the course superbly well.  I also think you nailed water placement and volume. Type in 'the shakespeare' on console. It was out on ps4 straight away. Thanks Chris, i know how much you like buzzing your **** to bring us these fine courses.

Can't play it yet (work) but from the pictures I'd say the bunker and rock work on this one looks like it's on another level from your previous work.

I'm still amazed by the variableness of this countryside theme. The difference from this course to my Bison run to Yeti is just remarkable. HB really nailed that.

Holy smokes. This is a benchmark course. Superb. The par 3 closing hole is a thing of beauty. Can I give 11 out of 10? And I shot the course record on Xbox 1 at 3 under (I'm first to play it lol). Should have shot at least 7 under left 3 hanging on the edge then was too busy admiring the last that I bogied lol

14th and 15th Hole The little brook i think the Combo of those 2 holes maybe best so far Real Nice Great Feature,7th hole beautiful little bridge and walkway over stream but not keen on design of hole when wind in face and to lay up of tee with mid iron and the 18th not for me the flowers saying course name but all got different tastes loads up 45secs on ps4 plays great as well  got a Fav from me and a 9/10 the amount of great courses being released is amazing countryside theme really coming up great at moment.

I thought it was just ok really










kidding - holy crap - so good and was nice talking to the gifted one while I played it.  Had 28 on the front but a balky putter on the back side for 32 got me in the house with 60.

There are so many genius moments on this course from the splash area look of the bunkers (stealing that) to all the holes that reward shaping shots.

Biggins best course, and THE best course in the game imo.
