Readme File for
Rosewood Golf Club
Designed with the APCD 1.5
December 3, 2005
By
Jamey Hribal


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 my third release with the first being a totally forgettable Pacifica Point. I regret releasing that course before learning many (read as any) of the advanced features that the APCD 1.5 is capable of. My second release was a visually improved course named The Retreat at Quail Valley. Unfortunately, I didnít have this one beta tested and there are a few technical issues that could affect game play. This is mainly limited to a few seamblends showing the wrong lie icon and terrain properties. This leads us to Rosewood. I would like to give a huge thanks to the testers that gave up their valuable time to look this course over and offer suggestions based on years of experience. Viv was great to work with. Observations came back accompanied by a photo showing the problemÖ..very professional. Viv also sent me a great texture packet and pano. The pano is from Wayne Hewittís Tall Pines Estates and Iíd like to thank Wayne for the use of it. Also, Jerry Garlisch was good enough to provide the hole handicapping. Christopher and Dylan were awesome as well. Thanks again guys for giving generously of your time.

Technical
Par 71
Back tees 7056 yards
Middle/Forward tees 6665 yards
Junior/Ladies tees 6127 yards
2397038 2D objects
34 textures
1136 mappings
CRZ File Size 108mb

(Hole descriptions included here)

Conclusion
This course plays fairly easy with itís generous fairways and greens. Very low scores are possible and with windy conditions a couple of the Par 4ís can be reached from the tees. A little practice will show you which ones and the correct path to take to get there. I hope you enjoy your rounds at Rosewood. I wanted to design a course that had a fairly manicured look but still resembled courses that I play in the East Texas area. Happy hacking!!

Thanks Jamey for sharing your course with us. I think it's a solid Eagle, and a very enjoyable track.

Ace. I liked everything about this course. Great design with challenging narrow fairways and small greens. Incredible planting that really brings the course to life. Great use of colour. Superb choice of textures in every department. And to my rather untrained eye the APCD work seems to be up there with the best. And not forgetting, mod-friendly greens.

Many thanks for sharing, Jamey. Thumb Up

I gave it a very high eagle. this course shows what someone with APCD talents and good beta testing can do for a course. I'm usually not one to look for cloned trees and such, but i did notoce something about these trees. They looked outstanding. Good greens and bunker work. It just played a little to easy for me to ace it, but thats not a knock on the course at all. Overall a very fine design and thanks for sharing it with us.

I voted eagle also. Very nice design, well crafted. A bit too wide open and not as dramatic as some other courses, but a very, very good course. Thanks for sharing.

commenting from a champ level point of view, east texas must be a nirvana for golf courses if jamey hribal's setting for rosewood is typical real-estate of the region. most vistas from the tees are drop dead gorgeous. the well wooded gently rolling terrain yields one beautiful hole after another.

#1 414yd par4 dogleg left, has no fairway traps, and a second shot to a green framed by back bunkers and trees that comes right out of the ideal artistic impression section of the golf course architect's handbook. #2 159yd par3, has a large green, again framed by trees and a pretty much out of play pond. for the purists who play without the overhead window, there is a large front trap that is not visible from the back tee.

#6 431yd par4, is a slight dogleg right in which the woods squeeze in toward the green, but not unfairly. #7 197yd par3, has a meandering trap that extends from the tee all the way to the green and the shot is played into the wind down a chute through the trees. #9 552yd par5, has a fairway squeezed by traps for driver, but even into the wind this green is probably reachable.

#10 170yd par3, the bulkheaded green juts out into a pond, not quite an island, but 80% surrounded by water. the green is ample for the downwind club required. #13, a reachable 512yd par5, has two large squeezing greenside bunkers and some tree canopy constriction too. #15 419 par4, a slight dogleg right has a weed choked muddy creek fronting the green. i won't spoil your fun by describing the consequences of getting too greedy with a front pin and going into this hazard.
#18 472yd par4 is a worthy finishing hole, and plays downwind to a well bunkered green.

this track would play very fairly at champ/windy, my own benchmark for overall champ play. my own scores have covered a gamut, especially putts, but i've been hitting a lot of fairways and greens.

rosewood occupies a beautiful piece of property and is beautifully rendered. the greens are generous and gently contoured as are the fairways. this course could exist in the real world in a heartbeat, and i wouldn't mind being a member here. this is straight ahead no gimmicks classic architecture in a very pleasing setting. it's a large file but well worth it. rosewood may not be a ballbuster, but i like playing recreational rounds at covered bridge (no death dealer) too, so i'll be showing up here to unwind on a regular basis. lw

Very high eagle. Technically excellent, a lot of fun to play. Only things that keep it from ace status are (a) I couldn't see why the file size is so huge, and (b) none of the holes really stand out, or rather, really make the course stand out.

But this is all-in-all a wonderful course.

I'd just like to thank everyone for taking time to vote as well as post feedback. In retrospect, I kinda wish I would have made it to play a little tougher in Links, but IRL it would no pushover.
I'm in the middle of what will probably be my last course, at least for a while, called Pine Dunes. Staying true to what I like, it is a pine/woodland style course with it's fair share of desert style waste areas. It's shaping up to be my best and hardest course yet. I'll be posting a few screenies in the preview section within the next several weeks. Thanks again for everyone's votes and kind words.

Cheers,
Jamey Yes

This is a really nice course, with excellent planting and textures, and some equally excellent sound to complete the experience. My only gripe is with the difficulty level. It just seems a little too easy playing elite RTS to hit the fairways and greens, only to find the putting is equally as easy. A few mounds and hollows added to the fairways, and some tougher slopes and tiers on a few of the greens would have made this a classic.
It's still damned good, but just falls short of an Ace, for me, because of this.
A lovely course though, and perfect if you need to chill out! I voted Eagle.
