Ballybunion Old Course

Last week, I did a brief outline model of Askernish, a Tom Morris links course in South Uist, as a warm-up for a model of Ballybunion Old Course, the classic Irish links course, which I thought I'd have a go at. However, when I looked at the Ballybunion web site, there's a fantastic fly-by of the co...

Re: Chambers Bay updates

Wow! Looks great Sage. I started on it ages ago but gave up - yours is superb!

Cheers

Re: Colonial, Winged Foot West, Riviera, maybe more...

I knocked out Harding Park (18 and 9 hole) some time ago when I saw that they were going to play the USPGA there. They're not locked, so feel free to help yourself.

Cheers

Re: St Mellion

Sorry Pete, my mistake - it's the 10th tee that needs moving! I only found this out because I'm working on the Kernow Course which I thought would be easy, but sod's law prevails - there are two par 4's under the Links yardage limit which makes tee placement awkward.

Cheers

Re: So many courses...so much time?

Hi Adelade

I did a very shortform of both the Portrush Courses prior to last year's Open, but they're not locked and you're more than welcome to use anything you need. The heights and locations of tees, greens, fairways and bunkers are all pretty accurate.

Cheers

Re: St Mellion

Thanks Pete. Have already spotted a couple of things that need to change - the Clubhouse needs altering substantially, and the 11th tee is in the wrong place! These don't detract from the game, though.

Cheers

Re: Thought to Brooks

Thanks your kind comments. Because of coronavirus and sorting out our local golf club, have not looked at Linkscorner recently. Nearest I got was Enniscrone (Stewart Parker), near Sligo, and never made it to Donegal. Only did Ballyliffin as Faldo raves about it and the Irish Open was played there. A...

Chapultepec

Looking at the WGC golf from Mexico, I of course forgot when I did this course that the ball flies about 15% further at 7,500 feet altitude - so Rory McIlroy hits a 520 yards par 4 with a drive and an 8-iron! Presumably, Links can't be adjusted for altitude (same applies to Crans Montana). Cheers Jo...

Re: Seeking advice for Seam Blends

My advice is simple. If you have any kind of seam blend check your number of edges. The total must always be an even number. If the number of edges is an odd number (like those that failed above) you have a problem. I personally shy away from 3-way blends such as bunker/rough/fairway - these are jus...

Re: 3D houses

Thanks Dan. The houses are largely hidden by trees but have to be white with terra cotta roofs - lot of the European Courses like Valderrama and some of the Spanish and Portuguese ones also have these. I've already got the 3D houses from the 2001 planting set, but these are so far removed from what ...
