Biggins,

I have to say that I do NOT get anyone complaining about hole 7. I freaking LOVE that hole. the "ditch" is drivable most of the time (though you do pucker your butt cheeks a bit on the trip) and that lovely little bridge area is just a place I'd like to walk through and look for frogs or something...  The second shot is great fun from the near side of the fairway and I like the uphill view.

It's my favorite hole on the entire course.

I meant to say this a long time ago but totally forgot. More hole 7's please!

I've just published some tournament editions of this course.  Should play a lot tougher.

The Shakespeare, Stratford-Upon-Avon Hotel & Resort, England - Tournament, Thursday
The Shakespeare, Stratford-Upon-Avon Hotel & Resort, England - Tournament, Friday
*The Shakespeare, Stratford-Upon-Avon Hotel & Resort, England - Tournament, Saturday*
The Shakespeare, Stratford-Upon-Avon Hotel & Resort, England - Tournament, Sunday

NOTE: During playtesting, I noticed the 17th flag was on the 18th green on the Saturday version.  I had to republish an edited version with the asterisks.

Biggins - awesome! Played the sunday pins and am still licking my wounds. Didn't play my best, but not bad either. Final score +2 with a double on a par 3. Don't even remember when I made a double last time in game. Loved how you started off with brutal pins and then gave some birdie opportunities down the stretch. Also liked that some pins were unreachable but most of those had a flat putt for birdie if played right. Maybe, just maybe it was a bit harsh with the pins but for the final round why not. Also really liked some of the pins perched close to the drop offs. Bad distance control and "bye bye ball". That's what caused my double...

Will try the rest of these over the next week for sure. Are these being used on TGCT for the tour event? They should.....

Am guessing you will get mixed reviews for this one, but I really enjoyed it.

Glad you liked it.

I think the green slopes and pin positions are harsh - much harsher than I'd generally like to put them but this course has been bizzed up in an effort stop stupidly low scores on the tour.  It'll piss some people off, but then it is a tour event and the members version is always available.
