Course ID Course Key

Rosewood is a fictional woodland course set amongst the rolling hills and tall pines of East Texas. Although this is a fictional course several of the holes were inspired by holes Iíve played through the years at local courses. The fairways are very generous and the greens fair. Rosewood will provide you with many birdie opportunities and should play well with the new mod.

This is the final version of Rosewood. Many thanks to Viv, Christopher, and Dylan for their time beta testing this course.
I hope you enjoy your rounds at Rosewood.

CLIPNOTES by Ben Bateson (ousgg)

Fictional, woodland course.
Concept  5/10
Liberally surrounded by grubby rough areas, Rosewood is a clash of styles. Its layout and visuals are convincing enough, but some aspects just donít sit happily on the eye. Was the excess of flowers (particularly by the waterís edge) necessary? Why, when there has been so much loving attention paid to custom planting, were so few buildings deemed necessary? What on Earth is going on with the crazy arrows on the hole previews? That which distracts the eye can also, sadly, detract from the game. Rosewood is half-baked, for half-marks.
Appearance  8/10
The designer, as with all his courses, has incorporated a strong visual style. The blends are pleasantly done, and the low-level grass and heather planting is very easy on the eye. But look a little closer. What on Earth are the paths made of? Why the brown rings in the middle of every bunker double-blend? Itís those few little things that prevent the course from being all that it might.
Playability  5/10
Smooth appearances and relatively conventional layouts have clearly been the designerís watchwords here. It might remind people that smoothness and conventionality are two fairly hefty paving stones on the path to boredom. Sure, youíll remember the nice looks of the course, but the holes Ė even the first few skirting the lake Ė just all fade into the background. Itís unlikely to be a course youíll return to time after time.
Challenge  9/10
Clearly there has been some careful testing done at Rosewood. Nothing, from hazarding to rough to green elevations, is done to excess. Instead, cleverly, each is used carefully to inspire good shot play and not solely to punish. Consequently, what emerges is a nicely-tuned course suitable for all levels of ability and conditions.
Technical  8/10
Jamey is a designer with a strong visual style, and the capabilities and patience with the APCD to bring his dreams to life. In the case of Rosewood, there are just one or two niggling problems and, of course, the question of what is being done to make the course stand out from the others.
Overall Competent without being terribly memorable for its golf. Enjoy the visuals, but donít expect Pebble Beach. 35/50
