CLIPNOTES by Ben Bateson (ousgg)

Description
Fictional, parkland course
Location
Based heavily around courses and landscape in Scotland.
Conditions
There are a few greens which would keep me at M*/M*
Concept  8/10
A very credible effort at reproducing a more standardised British club course, Fullerton is largely flat and grassy, and there are clever indications that it sets out to trap the average hacker in the easily-driven brooks and bunkers. There are plenty of moments of subtle beauty and charm in the subtly-planted and laid-out holes. Definitely a more mature and thoughtful course from this designer, it doesnít aim to blow your socks off and is all the better in that respect.
Appearance  8/10
Some stunning texture work is evident around the bunkers, both sod-walled and grass-surrounded, and the planting has been carefully observed and feels slightly wild without letting go the pretensions of a carefully-manicured course. The panorama is a perfect fit to the region, and the atmosphere is aided with a minimum of course extras. Itís a shame that the mid-textures tend towards tiling.
Playability  8/10
I thoroughly enjoyed my test rounds at Fullerton Woods, and it was due in no small part to the realism and the sort of challenges Iíd expect to encounter at my local club. There is very little done to excess, other than the ambient sound which caused some quite problematic lag on my machine.
Challenge  7/10
Itís often the case that sub-7000 yard courses such as these play far too easily; thankfully, this is not the case here, owing to a sprinkling of deep rough, and the nasty pot bunkers dotted round most greens. Hole shaping is used well, too, with the natural instinct to hit a 5-wood off most tees making for a tougher approach. In all likelihood, a few strokes under par is realistic, but thereís no walkover to be had here.
Technical  8/10
McCoist is slowly building his reputation with courses that have some stunning views, and with the clever, realistic designs here he has definitely been able to add another string to his bow. Water features and mid-range textures are still work in progress, so itís not quite yet perfect, but itís damn good nevertheless.
Overall A rare successful attempt to convey the more average standard of British course. This has realism by the bucket-load. 39/50
