Welcome. This is a basic tutorial for the creation of a golf course from start to finish outlining what I consider is the best way of achieving your goal, which for most of us is to release our ideas in the form of a fun and playable golf course. The learning curve with the Course Designer is a very large one and there will be unavoidable pit falls along the way, it’s not perfect but it is the best there is. What I will try to outline here hopefully will assist you along the learning curve, help you to avoid a lot of the pit falls and with a little luck and a lot of hard work get you somewhere near to producing the course you have in your mind…..

This tutorial will follow the progress of a fictional course, simply because a fictional course is a lot easier to produce than a real one.

There aims to be at least 7 holes in the total tutorial, 3 par 3s..... short, medium, and long... 3 par 4s in the same categories and probably 2 par 5s one reachable and one true 3 shotter to the green....
These will be made available as an ongoing release of word documents with images to help detail the design tutorial.
