Shows some great imagination in terms of hole design
and general layout.

Thanks, Leigh.

I really liked the conceit of having tiny greens and plenty of water, and I think Leigh's demonstrated a lot of skill in bringing it to life without making it unduly unfair. Lovely planting and colour scheme.

Shame about the dodgy 3D work. I wonder which hack was responsible for that. Whistle

Seriously, though, a good Eagle from me.

I found this a very challenging and attractive course. Loved the small greens and very cleverly designed. Ace from me.

Wonderfully playable while at the same time challenging. Gorgeous looking beginning to end. Great job! Clap

a very, very well designed layout w/o being too "tricked-up" a lot

and a fabulous job done on the extensive water plantings -- both variant shades of green grasses, brown reeds and vibrant colored blooming flowered plants

I also particularly liked the liberal number of shadowed greens that were included in the design to add a different kind of visual depth on the short grass

I hope Leigh would consider doing a texturizing upgrade on this original design as I understand it is not done w/ 1024 Hi-Res specs -- which would REALLY be nice

HOWEVER --- the ONE thing I found quite poorly done is that the course is only 18 holes and not 36 Tongue

ACE!!

I guess I have had this little gem on my PC for a couple of years now, but for some reason I never played it. The thing that impressed me most was, although it is a fictional course many of the holes are similar to ones I have played on various courses on Vancouver Island. An ace for me, even though, the uninteresting plain grey, lego style, clubhouse reminds me of Millbrook Penetentiary. Fear Laugh Scared Surrender

Agreed! Me and my ani-buddies got stuck at Hole #3.Balls looked liked they just ran off back of green, but all were in hazard and drops were in hazard and no one could advance out (anis just kept pounding away with selected wedge chip, but I tried SW flop & other shots, with no luck) due to steel grass and reeds that caused ball to bounce back in hazard. Repeat ad-infinitum. Too bad ... looks like a nice course.
