Wow! sage.: You have grown exponentially as a designer. Looking very detailed & maybe ready for a Beta release?
I am totally envious. Over the years, on 3 different PC's, when I tried to use the APCD, I could not get the cursor to release from the routing line on the 1st hole I tried to design; No one in the Forum was ever able to provided a solution and so I still remain sad & suicidal as each morning I awake and realize that none of the courses I dreamed about the night before will ever come to fruition in Links. Sad

It is very nice. It would look better with a little more seam blending. When you get better at that, I believe that your courses will be second to none others out there.

Delightful. Reminds me of an inland course in Montes de Málaga Natural Park, Spain. Look forward to playing it.

Sage,

Each course you do gets better and better. This looks like your best course ever looking at the photos. Hole 15 is awesome. Great view from the tee and another great view approaching the green. Keep up the good work. I like the way your holes can be very long or very short depending on what tee you use. Your designs also change the strategy of the hole depending which tee you're using. Your courses are good courses to play random tees.

A BIG thanks to everyone for the comments. I have changed some planting due to my comp lacking the power to be able to plant and seam blend to my liking. I will post some more pics as I progress to see what you all think of the changes. Again.....A BIG thanks to you all. I will also make changes to other courses based on the comments I get. I have already incorporated changes suggested mainly from Bill. Will post updates as I get them ready.

It does look great Sage! Thumb Up

I'm no expert on course design but it looks excellent to me. You need a better computer so you're not held back! Seam blends certainly would top it off.

Nice job Sage but, I dunno, the water looks too blue for the setting. Needs are more murky colour I reckon. And I think you need to be careful with your bunkers. A lot of them seem to have almost 90 degree vertical faces and maybe a bit of undercut here and there leading to some impossible lies. Playing backwards or sideways out of bunkers is not much fun after a while.. Scared
Just my 2 cents worth, Thumb Up

Mr. Hook.......Notes taken and will change the water......I had the same idea but got sidetracked before I made the change. Will make it. I know.....I go crazy with some of my bunkers...!!!!!! Again notes taken and will try to calm them down a bit. And again I will make note of the bunker thing in my future courses. Thanks again Mr. Hook......
