COURSE NOTES
a new version of TPC Boston (TPC Boston 2013)
no changes to the course layout or hole locations
nothing major the course will play the same
just some new textures and fixed some seam blends
all cosmetic but I am happier with how the course looks now

thanks to Acrilix for making his textures available
and the people who keep Links Corner online

CLIPNOTES by Ben Bateson (ousgg)

Description
Real, woodland course
Location
Maine
Conditions
F*/M* is slippery enough for me.
Concept  9/10
Thankfully not the stretch-fest that other PGA stops have become, Boston is a much more strategic test of golf, brought to life with a slightly quirkier style than Steve Avery's clean-cut norm. There's notable intelligent use of hazarding here, and great fairway shapes: the par 5s are notably outstanding holes, from the dare-you-to-go-for-it 7th to the very tempting closing hole, but there are plenty of other highlights. The entire course comes across as inexcessive and restrained in design - a rarity in itself these days.
Appearance  10/10
Honed and fine-tuned, with a whole new texture update, TPC Boston is really taking on the mantle of an admirable course. The planting looks absolutely superb at all levels and the new textures are a perfect fit while retaining the yellowed styling of the original.
Playability  9/10
A merciful break from the grip-it and rip-it standard which seems to dog tournament courses, Boston has terrific variety and most holes ask the player to think and plan from the tee. In some ways, with the unique style and selection of outstanding holes, it's a throwback to the classic PC golf games which really had to select the stand-out courses in order to be memorable. Terrific replay value stems from the variable hole lengths and the large number of gambling holes.
Challenge  6/10
Despite some golfing cleverness from the designer, it's a little too easy to take Boston apart. With trees that will rarely impact on missed tee shots, and prolific escapable rough, it's easy to hit the greens, but you will find your path to birdie dogged by some awkward - almost unlikely? - pin positions and greens that stubbornly refuse to be read. The lack of balance here is a source of frustration - maybe it might have been best not to toughen it up at all.
Technical  10/10
This is another quality product courtesy of a specialist in classy American courses and this most recent update, having tweaked a few seams and other native problems, is hard to fault.
Overall One of the best PGA tour stops for a casual round - plenty of holes here to play and enjoy, rather than scramble for par. 44/50
