I remember seeing an updated Congressional somewhere, although it may have been an APCD-Courses exclusive release. Can anyone confirm this?

If so, can you also confirm that it's still available via their Member Exclusives section?

Also, are there any member-exclusive courses at APCD-Courses that are not available here on Links Corner?

I don't want to spend the money on a subscription if they don't have any courses I need. Thank you!

"Member Exclusives"? What's all this? Does this mean that there are some more Courses floating around out there that aren't freely available? If so, which ones? I don't want to waste time doing Courses only to find that someone else has been there before.

Cheers

Augusta 2012, Congressional, Winged Foot West. There were others but some have since been made available.

John, APCD-courses.com is another Links site that requires a paid membership and was frequented by some prominent Links course designers. I know that they had released a few course designs exclusively to their paid members in the past. Congressional was the only one I knew about for sure, but as Mashie mentioned there were others. Thank you for the course design work you do. I really enjoyed my round at Salinas Fairways this morning. Great work by you and Sage!

Mashie, do you know if these courses are still available via paid membership? Is Augusta 2012 a worthy upgrade to the stellar 2009 edition? It's only 20 bucks, so I'm considering it.

PF I'm not a member there any more so I'm not sure if any of those are available. Check out the discussion here in the forum recently concerning Augusta 2010 and 2012. The 2012 version is probably more accurate with tee boxes and green contours. But it is missing trees on the left side of #10 which can impact the tee shot. It also has only 4-5 pins planted on each green. I played it in the most recent tournament and for the most part the pins planted were pretty close to the actual pins used in the tournament.

I'm a member at APCD-courses now and they do not have any of the exclusives available that they used to have.

Mashie, I don't recognize your name. What are some courses that you've done? You can name them in a PM if you want. (I have the courses)

Also wondering about this course, or if it will eventually be uploaded here? I had a subscription to APCD as well and used to have the course. Difficult course I must say. I must have lost it when I had to reformat my computer. I can't seem to find it on any of my hard drives anymore ;-(
