It's all in the eye of the beholder I suppose, but those tee boxes look a bit odd. Particularly in that shot of hole 2.
Green elevations look a bit severe in places, could lead to some "interesting" putting.
Nice job on the coastline though.

I also think the tee boxes look kind of odd. Nothing at all like you might find in real life. Other than the tee boxes, the rest looks decent.

Just curious, as fast as you are advancing, have you put any thought into adjusting your fairway mowing stripes so they point toward the greens? It's a simple process and helps add a little more to the realism.

Best wishes,

Dan

Looks as if plot of land has a couple of islands below main one not using. Out of curiosity does land already have jungle or lava on it that you are choosing to ignore? Some places look as if holes are already made on plot, such as Nicklaus might say if he were to go about designing on this plot of land that he just put holes where they existed already instead of making course totally different than course plot intended. Another Nicklaus thought about course design I have read was to have a balance in holes and by this layout all ocean holes are to right side of holes, even some inland holes have a lake on their right side.

Hi Gene......the land is farm or ranch land on a peninsula in NZ. No golf course there.

That is the 16th attempt lol not finished yet I may send you about three if they look ok to me.I included some snow-capped mountains because New Zealand as so many and seeing as it is a fictional course I thought why not.
Can you email me the link again Sage I deleted the one I had.Thank you.
